The movie Dunkirk is a great example of something that could have been a huge failure but instead was a major turning point of the war. Life can throw us seeming failures as well but Is it failure or is there more? Sometimes what seems like a failure is the beginning of something better. Do we see failure as a dead end or an opportunity. How are we doing with our failures? The Guys talk about it today and how to move forward not allowing your failures to direct your future.

Envy, social media, the desire to want what someone else has. Have you ever scrolled through social media and felt like everyone else is doing things you only wished you could? Today we talk about the value of battling that thought and moving to a place where envy does not control our actions by taking a few small steps.
Responding to the unexpected. Bad things happen all the time, the tire goes flat, the coffee runs out, you lose the keys. How do we respond to negative things? As we respond our family watches how we react. Are we inspiring our children to faith or fear?
Running on Empty. There is a common thought that being busy is a sign of importance, yet there is a feeling within us that tells us this is not true. So how do we change? How do we fight against simply staying busy? This week we talk about this in a practical way and how to move from busy to being still and fulfilled as we hear about the story of Elijah and his exhaustion in the midst of serving God.
Fear of the Gap. The tension between adventure and responsibility. Being busy can get us in a rut and cause us to feel lost and forget the things that caused us to become alive in the first place.

Its not just for us but for those who are watching us take chances and trusting God along the way.

Travis and Bill share who they look to in the scriptures as Godly, biblically masculine men and what they have learned from them.

They share the truths they find in the scriptures that define biblical masculinity and the value of “the one degree” of change that can happen in mens lives.
What is masculinity? – You aren’t a man because of what you do – you are a man because you were created that way. Today on the podcast we talk about this idea of masculinity and the various ways it is described in our society. We look into the scriptures and ask what is fake and what is real when it comes to masculinity?
Breaking the intimacy barrier – There are times when your marriage seems like a coexisting relationship verses what God really intended. We talk about the value in the short game verses always trying to get the touchdown. We as guys generally have one thing in mind when it comes to pursuing our wife. There is something powerful as we begin to see the value of investing in the day to day with our spouse. Yes sex is fun, but there is actually more than that with our marriage. But yes its really fun. For more info on the upcoming Known Legacy Conference go to:
