Why You Should Take More Risks

Life is full of challenges that feel too big for us. When you’re facing something scary, should you wait until you feel confident before acting, or should you just go for it? I’ll unpack the answer in today’s teaching.  

How Matthew McConaughey Built Confidence

What’s the secret to confidence? It’s knowing who you are. And it helps when people in your life remind you when you’ve forgotten. Matthew McConaughey shares an inspiring (and hilarious) story about how his mom instilled a sense of confidence in him from a young age.

How to Listen to God

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”

— Isaiah 43:18­–19 (NIV)

New things are both exciting and scary. Maybe you find yourself starting a new position at work, entering a new season of life, or launching a new business. Whatever you’re experiencing, here are a few journal questions that will help you process what’s going on:

  1. What new thing do you sense God is doing in your life?
  2. What do you sense God is urging you to do about it?
  3. What would it look like to just try it?
