EP: 59; Balancing Family, Work, Faith and the Outdoors
This week on episode 59 I have as a guest, A. J. Howard of Unbounded Pursuit. A.J. and his brother in law Tommy launched a FB page and YouTube channel three years ago they titled Unbounded Pursuit, you can find it here. Their driving force is to bring viewers into a closer relationship with God as they share their outdoor pursuits.
A.J. and I discuss the struggles for people to balance it all in this chaotic world we are living in. As men of God who strive to honor Him and be good godly fathers and husbands. We seem to have so many balls in the air that invariably one or two fall because we are trying to do too much.
In this discussion we remind ourselves that we seem to always find time for things that are important. “I don’t have time is the biggest lie we tell ourselves.” it is really all about our priorities, the things that are important to us are always available. Make the right things important. In this discussion I share that for me, it is God, my wife, children, work, and play. In that order. When that order gets out of wack, is when stress arises, frustration mounts and life gets crazy.
What do you think about? Where do you spend your time? Where do you spend your money? These are the priorities in your life. When you struggle with balancing family, work, faith and the outdoors, look at your priorities and make sure they are in the right order.
It really is amazing how when we focus our lives on God, how everything else falls into place.
A.J. Howard shares his struggles and his plan to make it better, this podcast is one everyone can benefit from.
