A Memorable Thanksgiving in Africa with Caleb Boone

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and the guys at 2 Dads, 1 Mind decided to bring a friend along to talk about Thanksgiving memories and traditions. Caleb Boone joins in on the discussion about Thanksgiving and shares a funny story of one of his most memorable Thanksgiving moments while living in Nigeria for a few years as a kid. How does this year look with the ongoing pandemic? What are their plans and are they that different? One thing the three seem to agree on is that, as the years have gone by, so have the bigger family get togethers. Is this a cultural or societal change over the past ten to twenty years? One thing is certain, life is short so getting together with family is important, but so is everyone's safety during these crazy days. This episode wouldn't be complete with a few good laughs and it was a joy to talk with Mr. Caleb Boone.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2dads1mind/support

Finding Your Rhythm in Family and Business with Elijah Stiner

Have you wondered how it is that you're supposed to balance your work and family life? Well, maybe it's not supposed to be a balance at all. Brandon and Jordan, at 2 Dads, 1 Mind, talk with guest, Elijah Stiner about finding your rhythm in family and business. Elijah is the owner of Fence OKC https://fenceokc.com and Oklahoma Lumber https://www.oklahomalumber.com. Elijah talks with the guys about how he has been able to start up a couple successful businesses while trying his best to make sure he has quality time with his family. Sacrifices are needed to be made at times, especially when pouring yourself into creating a business. There's an ebb and flow with the amount of time it requires. Elijah shares some insight on this topic and shares how he views it more like a rhythm, rather than a balance. After hearing a message from his pastor about finding your rhythm, he thought it made really good sense. It's almost impossible to really balance the two, so maybe it's not really meant to be a balance but something that changes almost with the seasons. Some seasons require more focus at work and other seasons require more dedicated quality time at home. It may look different for all of us, but one thing the three guys agree on is family is more important. After all, that work is to provide for your family. So, if you're always working and never there for your family is it really worth it?--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2dads1mind/support

Xbox Talk with Josh Hutton

The guys at 2 Dads, 1 Mind dial it back a bit for this episode in anticipation for the launching of the new Xbox Series X/S consoles on November 10, 2020. There are a lot of dads out there who play games, whether on PC or console, and Brandon and Jordan are a couple dads who enjoy console gaming specifically on the Xbox. They decided to bring in a local expert, if you will, Josh Hutton. Josh has run a podcast entitled, What's in Da Box, for about two years before they took a hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. His podcast show focuses on all that is Xbox. The three guys talk about the new Xbox and why they are excited about playing on the latest generation. One thing they haven't been excited about, however, is the confusing naming convention Xbox has used and they hope this improves after this upcoming generation of consoles. So, a question you may be asking yourself as a listener is why is 2 Dads, 1 Mind taking time to talk about a new gaming console? Quite simply, dads have hobbies. One of the hobbies Brandon and Jordan share just so happens to be gaming. After a day's work and spending time with family, they enjoy hopping online to play a game and chat with others. For them, it's also about getting time to relax and blow off steam while chatting with friends. If you enjoy gaming it's okay. However, just like with anything don't let it consume you or become something that hinders your most important relationships.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2dads1mind/support

Leading Your Family Through Challenges with Pastor Matt Wheeler

Life can be hard on us at times and pastors aren't exempt from bad days either. On today's episode Brandon and Jordan talk with Pastor Matt Wheeler of Oak Hills Church in Edmond, Oklahoma, about leading your family through challenges. Pastor Matt gives us a look into the life of a pastor, especially focusing what it's like to pastor while trying to lead his family well. He shares his struggles and heart breaks while also giving sound advice on seeking help from God and a counselor. He shows us as men that it is okay to seek a counseling relationship and be vulnerable and transparent. We are all human and make mistakes, or just need someone to help us make better plans and goals for our lives.  Pastor Matt explains how dominating at work, but not thriving at home is, in the end, failing. We need to give our bests as dads, employees, or even pastors. Our families are our next most important relationship after God. It is vital to get poured into and not feel like you are only pouring out to others. Matt shares how starting his day in God's word is key in having a good day and making sure he is centered on what matters the most. -- If you would like to check out Pastor Matt Wheeler's church online, or in person, visit Oak Hills Church: https://www.ohcedmond.com/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2dads1mind/support
