152: Living a Spirit Led Life With Patrick And Lauren Nelson
How often do the needs of orphaned children around the world come to your mind? Patrick and Lauren Nelson are dedicating their lives to the needs of these orphans by rescuing them from sex trafficking and helping them with trauma and healing. As the parents of two young sons, the Nelsons live in Dallas but travel to Haiti several times each year through work with their non-profit, I’m Me, which began in 2012. In this episode, Patrick and Lauren explain how the seed of compassion for Haiti was first planted, and how they felt God’s calling as an “assignment” for their lives. They explain the differences they see in people’s lives when Jesus is encountered and how they are challenging the Enemy’s stronghold over the country of Haiti and its people. The Nelsons share how they’ve learned humility through the trying circumstances of hitting rock bottom and finally handing everything over to the Lord. Patrick and Lauren tell about the coffee business and leather goods that they are using to help the kids in Haiti, and how you can get involved and help support their endeavors. The Nelsons wrap up our conversation by giving their advice about facing trials, obstacles, and having really big dreams in your work for Jesus. Resources:
151: Modern Day Prophetic with Shawn Bolz
Shawn Bolz is on the podcast today talking about how the Holy Spirit living inside us nudges us down the paths we should take and we have to be tuned in. We walk with God as Christians and we need to listen to Him so that His word has application. Shawn helps others understand what God is saying in a prophetic way, just as many of the prophets heard and shared from God in scripture. Shawn and other prophets help others to understand what God is saying to them individually, whether through something audible or through nature and instincts. Shawn shares how God sometimes wants us to creatively solve problems without money and gives examples of how God has done this in his life. Shawn shares their excitement about the speakers who will be at the Kingdom Conference including Bob Hasson, Jon Fuller, Shawn Bolz, Michael McIntyre, and Christy Austin. So, be hungry for Christ and attend both conferences to be radically changed! Resources: Two of the biggest events in Texas this year include the Modern Prophetic Symposium and The Kingdom Conference. (7/28)
150: Promise Keepers is Back with Ken Harrison
What does it mean to be a man in today’s world? Today’s guest has a lot to say on the topic, and he’s written a new book, Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says About Being a Man. The book is a guide to discipleship for men, but even women are raving about the chapter dedicated to marriage. Ken Harrison is Chairman of the Board of Promise Keepers, a Christ-centered organization dedicated to instilling in men a passion for hearing, obeying, and daily meditating on the Word of God. Over 7 million men have had their lives impacted by Promise Keepers since 1990. Ken also serves as CEO at WaterStone, an organization that helps clients give away millions of dollars annually in support of Christian worldwide humanitarian efforts. Being a former LAPD officer in a high-crime area taught Ken to live life in the moment because it’s uncertain and unpredictable. When he retired from the police force, he prayed for God to give him business wisdom for his path ahead---and He did. Ken credits the goodness of God in directing his steps, instilling passion and purpose in his life, and giving him the courage to stand up as a man of God. Ken’s parting advice is, “God is looking for people of courage, and the world is full of wimps. Don’t be a chocolate soldier who melts when the heat is on.” Resources: and send us a message for a chance to win a copy of Ken’s book!
