We all want to achieve success.
But it’s easy to get caught up in the wrong things on the path to success. We have our eyes set on the prize when suddenly we get tempted by things of this world. We begin to chase approval, money, and recognition.
So what is the most important building block to success?
Coach Dungy believes that at the end of the day, INTEGRITY is most essential.
Because when we uphold integrity, we are honest, trustworthy, and dependable. And success comes to those who work hard in this way.
Be encouraged to walk in integrity this week and let us know how it goes by commenting below!
Life is full of storms.
There are small storms like unexpected traffic, burnt dinner, and rained out excursions. Things like these can be frustrating, but are easily moved past.
But then there are big storms: financial struggles, parenting difficulties, job losses, or even the death of a loved ones. So how can you and your spouse recover from some of life’s biggest storms?
Coach Dungy believes that when we keep Christ at the center of our relationship, we can make it through anything. The key to surviving difficulties is keeping our eyes on God–no matter what life throws our way.
What are some storms you’ve faced recently? Share your story in a comment below.
What do you believe shapes your identity?
For some, it’s their career. They work long days and late nights climbing the corporate ladder. They believe that their next promotion will finally make them happy…only to find it’s a never-ending climb.
For others, it’s social media. They spend hours scrolling through Twitter and Facebook, creating a picture-perfect life to impress their friends. They find fleeting happiness in the the number of “likes” they can rack up.
Still others believe their family shape their identity. They live vicariously through their children–forcing them into sports they never succeeded in on their own. Or they put too much pressure on their spouse to maintain a perfect home and a perfect disposition.
But while these can all be great things, the truth is that your identity should be found in Christ. Your career, your social media account, and your family can bring you joy. But it is God who calls you his own and guides you through life.
So be encouraged to find your identity in Christ alone!
Growing up, most of us imagine marriage to be a real life fairytale.
We expect roses and smiles and sunshine and rainbows.
So when marriage finally does come around, many people are shocked. They realize marriage is tough. Marriage requires sacrifice. Marriage is work!
But even though marriage may not be as easy as we’d like, there’s one thing marriage always is: patient. Marriage means you and your spouse bear with one another through tough times, support one another through grief, and cheer for one another through trials.
When is the last time you showed patience to your spouse? Share your story with us in a comment below!
Lots of people wonder how to choose the right spouse. Lots of other people wonder if they even chose the right spouse!
But Coach Dungy shares his wisdom by explaining that when you know, you know!
Remember that feeling you had on your wedding day? The way you looked into their eyes? The way you made those everlasting vows? The way you felt your heart overflowing with love? That is God’s way of saying this is right.
Because at the end of the day, when you know, you know!
So we want to encourage you to spend some time today thanking God for bringing you the love of your life. And if you’re not married but desire to be, spend some time today asking God to lead you to the right person. Because God is good!
When did you first know you were in love with your spouse? We’d love for you to share your love story with us in a comment below.
How often do you feel alone? How often do you feel like no one understands you or cares for you or is working for your good?
Well, we want to let you in on a little secret this morning: you are never alone.
That’s right: you’re never alone! Because God is always by your side. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
So instead of giving up, just look up! And know that God is always with you.
How does your life change knowing that God is always by your side? We’d love to hear your thoughts in a comment below!
Are you and your spouse struggling through marriage? Are you facing miscommunications, misunderstandings, and missed opportunities? Well there may be a simple solution: daily conversations.
One of the biggest reasons for unhappy marriages is a lack of communication. That’s why we believe in talking daily with your spouse.
But don’t just talk on a shallow level. Talk about what’s on your heart and mind! Talking about what’s on your mind means sharing what’s going on at work, what you’re stressed about, and sharing one another’s burdens. Talking about what’s on your heart means sharing your new passions, your concerns, and your love for one another.
So get started right now and share what’s on your heart and mind with your spouse!
Sometimes we get so caught up in this world that we forget to look up. We get so caught up in our work, our business, our marriage, our kids, and our finances that we forget to consider God. So today, here are 3 truths to remember about God’s character…
- God is good. First and foremost, we must understand that God is good. His plan for you and your life is good. He wants to guide you and protect you and bring you peace.
- God is sovereign. Next, it’s important to know that God is sovereign. He is always watching over us and working things together for our good.
- God is in control. Finally, remember that God is in control of it all. God is above all because He always was, always is, and always will be. He has control over His creation and keeps you in His hand.
What are some other truths about God? We’d love for you to share in a comment below.
Some dads are great at spending quality time with their kids.
Every once in a while, they’ll take their kids on a huge, extravagant trip that they’re sure to love! But when it comes to the day to day relationship, they’re far from present.
Other dads are great at spending quantity time with their kids.
They’re sure to be with their kids as much as possible. But all those days together, dad is busy checking his email or on business calls.
But the best time with your kids happens when quality and quantity meet! This means making the most of each and every day with your kids.
Share with us in a comment below how you can spend quality and quantity time with your children this week!

We all want to be in control.
We want to be in control of our marriage, our kids, our job, our finances, our time, and everything else you can think of!
But would that really be best?
If you were to take control of your entire life and everything in it, do you think you could do it better than God? Do you think that you would be wise enough to take care of everything perfectly?
In Jeremiah 29:11, God says, “For I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you.” If we believe this, that means that God’s plans for you are GOOD! God’s plan for your marriage, your kids, your job, your finances…and even your time.
So stop trying to take control and start trusting God!
