I love to listen to podcasts when I workout in the mornings and as I go through the day (I usually have one going every time I get in the car by myself). Of the more than 3 dozen I subscribe to, here are 3 of my favorites:

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t agree with everything Rob says but I do enjoy listening to him.
- This Is Your Life | Michael Hyatt
Here is a description of Michael’s podcast, “This Is Your Life™ is a weekly podcast dedicated to intentional leadership. My goal is to help you live with more passion, work with greater focus, and lead with extraordinary influence.” As usual, Michael shares lots of practical knowledge.

Your turn… If you know someone who would be blessed by these resources, share them with them today and/or via Social Media.
This will be my last post for a few weeks (I plan to resume after the Holidays but probably not until early February as I’ll be tied up with planning a big Men’s Conference with Donald Miller and Bob Goff). So, as I close out this year I thought you would be blessed with some thoughts from a recent Leadership Podcast by Michael Hyatt. This episode focuses on the 3 forces that shape character. I’ll mention them here and encourage you to go and check out the complete episode (by the way, if you don’t already follow Michael Hyatt; do yourself a favor and start today — he consistently provides great resources focusing on Intentional Leadership).
There are three forces that shape who we are at the core of our being:
- The input we consume.
- The relationships we pursue.
- The habits we acquire.

What if there was a way to keep all your New Year’s resolutions? What if you didn’t have to wave the white flag of surrender to the giants in your life? If you’re tired of losing the same battles over and over again, our series Sticks and Stones will teach you five secrets to make your resolutions more than words.
Major resolutions and huge goals. We want big change and we want it now. But maybe taking life in a new direction has a lot more to do with the little things. Let’s learn how to embrace intentionality in Small Things, Big Difference.
This series focuses on the importance of God’s Word in our lives. Make sure you check out the 31 day devotional that goes along with the series, Gateway Devotions: It Is Written.

Back in July I shared Three Sermon Podcasts You Will Enjoy and listed several honorable mentions for people to consider. Today I am going to share 3 from that list that have been blessing me a lot recently (I think you will enjoy them too):
Erich’s note: Jonathan is the Preaching Minister at the Highland Church of Christ in Abilene. I’m really enjoying his series the Sequels series right now (it focuses on a new perspective on love, sex, marriage, and dating). He is a very creative communicator. You can follow Jonathan’s blog here.
Erich’s note: Dave is the Vision & Teaching Minister at Ethos Church. You can learn more about the story of Ethos Church here. I discovered him earlier this year when Rick Atchley recommended his podcast to me. He is a very authentic communicator (very transparent). Dave has been teaching through the Bible in 2013 so go back to the beginning of the year and enjoy).
Erich’s note: Robert is the Founding Senior Pastor of Gateway Church. Since it began in 2000, the church has grown to more than 26,000 active members. I have been listening to his sermons for a few years now and I’m always blessed, challenged, and encouraged by his messages. I believe you would really enjoy two of his most recent messages: The Star and The Plot (from the series The Show). UPDATE: Robert started a new series called Free Indeed on September 21 that’s going to be great. I listened to the first lesson today, Under The Influence.
Your turn… What are some sermon podcasts you enjoy listening to?
Today’s post is in honor of Rick Atchley, the Preaching Minister at The Hills Church where I work, because today is his birthday and he really is a great guy. During the past 3 years he has preached 3 series with an emphasis on GREAT (you can purchase the first 2 here and follow along with the 3rd one for free right now):
This series of lessons was preached during the Greater Things Capital Campaign for The Hills Church. The emphasis of the series is not on raising funds, but raising faith. The aim is not to produce bigger donors, but better disciples.
You can do nothing greater than determining what your greater than is. This series explores God’s claim to be our perfect greater than. It will examine the blessings of knowing God as greater than, and also the problems of living life with a shrunken God.
Every great theme in the Bible is found in Romans 8: sin, judgment, law, the Spirit, righteousness, death, resurrection, creation, transformation, prayer, hope and glory. This chapter ends declaring that nothing can separate us from God’s love; but, “no separation” is only a reality if “no condemnation” is a possibility.
Erich’s note: You can find daily devotionals and small group resources on the GREATNESS page.
