5 Podcasts That I’m Listening To

Moving to New York City intensified my love for podcasts. Riding the subway I lose mobile service and podcasting has become the best way to pass the time in the most productive way. I’ve always listened to podcasts, but the past 2 years my listening time significantly increased. Here are my top 5 favorite podcasts:
 

  1. The #AskGaryVee Show Podcast - great social media and business insights (warning: Gary’s language can be a little strong)

  2. Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast - this is the podcast that I’ve listened to for the longest and always moves to the top of my list when new episodes come out. I wish there were more episodes than just once a month.

  3. Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast - the interviews on this podcast for church leaders are second to none. If you’re a church leader and you are not listening, please subscribe today.

  4. This Is Your Life Podcast with Michael Hyatt - Over the past half decade or so I’ve read and listened to as much Michael Hyatt as I can. I love his leadership insights and productivity hacks that he so openly shares.

  5. Smart Passive Income Podcast with Pat Flynn - conversations with some incredible digital geniuses that are utilizing online marketing systems in effective and efficient ways.

 

Here are a few others on my subscribe list:

 

Also, I want to also highly recommend 3 other podcasts that I am very hands on with:

  1. Social Media Church Podcast - Jay Kranda and I talk Social Media for church leaders with some of the top practitioners around the world.

  2. Awesome Marriage Podcast - featuring Dr. Kim Kimberling, I have the privilege of co-hosting with Christina Dodson where we talk practically about how you can have an awesome marriage.

  3. Emotionally Healthy Leadership Podcast - Pete Scazzero and Rich Villodas share openly and honestly about leadership from the trenches and how Emotionally Healthy Spirituality can transform your leadership.

The New EHS Website

After more than 6 months of hard work I am so excited to share the new Emotionally Healthy Spirituality website!  As always PlainJoe Studios hit it out of the park with exceptional design and user experience.  I could go on, but I will let the website speak for itself:

Don't just look at the pictures!  Go to EmotionallyHealthy.org right now and check it out in it's entirety!  Also, if you haven't gotten a copy of Pete Scazzero's book Emotionally Healthy Leader go get your copy on Amazon today.

Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference FREE Live Stream

Over the past 18 months I have had the privilege of serving Pete Scazzero and the great people at Emotionally Healthy Spirituality as a consultant.  Over this time I can without hesitation say that this ministry has grown and developed me more than I have grown and developed it.  To say that the core message of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is counter-cultural would be an understatement.  This ministry is transforming thousands of leaders around the world and I'm grateful to be one of them.

If you are not yet familiar with the ministry I highly encourage you to visit EmotionallyHealthy.org and get to know the ministry better.  In less than 2 weeks on April 22-23rd the ministry will be holding their annual Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference here in New York.  The conference will include great presenters above in Pete & Geri Scazzero along with Rich Villodas (pictured above).  Unfortunately, this conference has been sold out for weeks, but fortunately we will be making the conference available for FREE via Live Stream!  There's no catch, no strings attached, just a transformational conference for leaders of any kind.  

To learn more about this conference and to register for the Live Stream go to http://emotionallyhealthy.org/livestream.

Okay, I'm not done yet on my plea.  I often get similar free live stream invitations and because it's free I halfway watch it in the background.  Often times they don't stream the whole conference as well and it's just a couple sessions.  I want you to know that we are streaming ALL main session events and the breakout in the main auditorium during the conference.  This will be well worth your time and if you can clear your schedule and fully engage in the live stream, I can guarantee that it will be worth your time and you will be a better leader because of it.  That's a bold statement, but I say it with great confidence.  

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out or comment below.  I hope to see you online for this incredible event!

Becoming Emotionally Healthy

ehs

6 months ago I began a much unanticipated journey towards emotionally healthy spirituality.  I connected with Pete Scazzero who was in need of some digital communication support for his ministry Emotionally Healthy Spirituality in New York.  I was excited about the opportunity to serve this ministry that was on the verge of great break through, but little did I know that the ministry would transform me far more that I would transform it.

While getting started I naturally began poking around the website and reading Pete's book, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.  Conviction began to set in as I began to notice that much of Pete's story was similar to mine.  You see, I work hard for the sake of the gospel, but I too often use that as an excuse to justify my workaholism.  My unhealthiness didn't stop in my work habits and life balance, it also was a part of my inter-personal relationships and my desire to keep peace rather than address issues.  Honestly, my list of issues could go on, but the book is not about habits that we need to break as much as it is about practices we need to embrace.

Pete told me when I got started that this is more radical than I know, and now 6 months later I see it clearly.  I'm honored to be a part of this transformational ministry and hope you will join me in this journey of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality!

Curious where to start?  Here's my recommendation:

  1. Take the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Personal Assessment - http://www.emotionallyhealthy.org/personalassessment/
  2. Experience Session 1 of the EHS Course - http://www.emotionallyhealthy.org/ehs-course-session-1/
  3. Read the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality book - http://www.emotionallyhealthy.org/product/emotionally-healthy-spirituality-new/
  4. Begin to develop the practice of the Daily Office - http://www.emotionallyhealthy.org/product/emotionally-healthy-spirituality-day-by-day/

If you are a church or ministry leader I cannot encourage you enough to integrate the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course into the life of your church.  To find out more about this course click here.
