Startiversary {Podcast Episode #55}


It’s been one year since Jon Acuff sent out a cryptic message that simply said, “Adventurers wanted.” I had no idea it would lead to an experience that would be so incredibly powerful. I have met people from all over the country and made friendships that have enriched my life. Even though I felt I had “started” a few years earlier, this group has helped continue to push me to be better and make positive changes in my life.

On this episode, we talk about:




One of my favorite quotes from Start.

Thanks for listening! Please leave an honest review on iTunes. I’d be so honored!



How to start a new journey


The Power of Now


Creative Commons: Genista

Has this ever happened to you?

You hear a song that you’ve heard hundreds of times before, but suddenly hear a completely new message.

The lyrics take on a new meaning, and you know it was meant for you to hear right then. In that exact moment.

This has happened to me many times. I know why it’s happening, but honestly, it still blows me away. It happened in a big, stop everything I was doing way this morning.

I have listened to Phil Wickham for years. I’ve heard his song, The Time is Now, so many times.

But, today, the lyrics spoke directly to my soul.

They were answers to questions I’ve been asking.

Answers that my heart and soul know are right.

Answers that I have prayed diligently about, but that my stubborn mind and need for control continue to try to sabotage.

I don’t know what you’re facing today, but I know very clearly that the time is NOW. There is power in that word. It’s honestly all we really have. It’s all we’re guaranteed. Now.

I hope these lyrics encourage you today. I’d love to hear what you’re being prompted to do right now.


“The Time Is Now”

by Phil Wickham

The battle line is drawn it’s all in black and white

Hope is going forward and fear from behind

It’s time

It’s time to make a move, so what will you decide?

The clock is ticking on, don’t let it pass you by

It’s time

It’s time

The time is now for lifting souls

The time is now for letting go

From your skin to your core

Let light and love come rushing through the door


For My Start Conference Friends

If you’re visiting for the first time after meeting me at The START Conference, welcome! I am so glad you are here. Please take a look around, and make yourself at home. Also, be sure to download a free copy of my book, BecomingaLifeChanger. It’s my way of saying thank you for checking out my site. I love having conversations with other dreamers, and I can’t wait to get to know you better.


It’s that time of year again. Time to make another trip to a city that is becoming like a second home to me.

Today, I’m off to NASHVILLE!

Earlier this year, we were in town for Start Night. It was the launch of Jon Acuff’s book, Start. We had a blast, and Rick finally got to see what I loved about the city and the awesomeness surrounding Jon’s events.


It’s hard to believe that it has only been two years since my first Acuff event. So many amazing things have happened since then. I feel like I am a completely different person, and definitely equate much of that to learning to live differently. I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of the last few Nashville trips and conferences. Take a look!

I absolutely love Nashville, and feel so thankful that I get to have a few days every year to spend there. I’m especially looking forward to the START Conference and the chance to see so many people from the START Experiment. What an amazing group of people!

Spending time with dreamers and people who want to change the world gets me so excited and fired up. I can’t wait to see what stories and friendships unfold from this weekend.

I also can’t wait to experience Mangia Nashville for the first time. I watched some highlight videos today, and it looks awesome!

If you’re heading to the START Conference, please be sure to catch me and say hi!
