Scott Hamilton - Skating Into Olympic-Sized Joy

One thing that you won't miss if you're tuning in to watch the Summer Olympics is loss and disappointment, more so even than victory and celebration. The games, and the journey to get there, are filled with grief, setbacks, rejection, loss, and pain. The question for every athlete who experiences loss is this: what will you do with it? Will you allow it to define you and predict your path? The same question applies to us because no one escapes those types of experiences. The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, Scott Hamilton has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame. In 1984, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as a analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author (Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, 2018; The Great Eight, 2009; Landing It, 1999). He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor. After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming a survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring Program. Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer and An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends galas fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient harm. Scott recently launched Live Your Days – a call to being present and not let day after day pass, just going through the checklist of life. It is about putting down your phone to enjoy the people and moments that God has given you, because we don’t control the number of days we have on this earth, we only control what we do with them. The online platform includes a weekly podcast interview, 30-day life challenges with easy to implement tips and merchandise, with proceeds benefiting the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. He is also the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at the Ford Ice Centers in Antioch, TN and Bellevue, TN, where he may frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate students and sharing his love of skating. In what little free time remains, Scott can be found on the golf course and enjoys spending time with his wife Tracie and four children – at their home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tim Timmons - Discovering God Here and Now

If you've ever found yourself with a full schedule but an empty heart, you're in good company. It's far too easy to get caught up in our tasks and commitments and miss out on the presence of God who's always with us. Tim Timmons is one of my friends who reminds me that God is always available in the here and now. After two decades of ministry and a lifetime of looking for Jesus, Tim is no stranger to pain, cancer, sorrow, failure, joy and hope. “For most of my life,” Tim shares, “I found myself working FOR God, and not WITH Him, which led to my tired soul desperately searching for more. Saying, ‘Jesus, is this all there is?’”  When Tim is home, he, Hilary (his wife of 23 years), their four children, and friends gather all week long, including Sunday mornings (Journey Church), and encourage each other to put Jesus into practice in the regular rhythms of our days. Tim has a new album with Integrity Music, titled HERE, which is now available.

Lysa TerKeurst - Seeing Beautiful Again

It's far too easy to take things too seriously. It makes sense- life is intense, especially the long season we just went through. Even when we approach our dreams and ambitions- things that are actually designed to bring us more life, more joy, and more adventure- it's easy to slip into a mode of intensity that saps all the goodness from us.  So what does it look like to return to joy, even amid working through the tough challenges and setbacks, too? I'm so happy to have my good friend Lysa TerKeurst on our podcast this week. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the #1 New York Times’ bestselling author of Seeing Beautiful Again: 50 Devotions to Find Redemption in Every Part of Your Story and Forgiving What You Can’t Forget and It’s Not Supposed to Be This.

Todd Tilghman - On the Edge of Ambition

Some of us can sense the moments or seasons when we know deep down that the path we're on is no longer working. Whether you'd describe it as a deep dissatisfaction or a draw towards something else, sometimes it feels like we're on the edge of discovering our next ambition.  For anyone right now feeling like it's about time for a change, I can't wait for you to listen to Todd Tilghman's journey on the podcast this week.  Todd Tilghman is a husband and father passionate about family, adoption, loving people, bringing joy and music. Though Todd is best known as the winner of Season 18 on NBC’s The Voice, he has been involved with music and singing his entire life. Todd sang his first song in church at age eight and has spent the years since singing for the love of singing.

Todd has spent his adulthood in full-time ministry and currently resides in Meridian, Mississippi, with his wife, Brooke, and their eight children. Todd and Brooke have a new book coming out June 2021 titled Every Little Win: How Celebrating Small Victories can Lead to Big Joy and Todd is currently working on music for his debut album.

Natalie Decker - Steering Towards the Finish Line

It's tempting to look at someone who's been successful and assume it was an easy ride for them. For most people though, success didn't come easy at all. They pushed through a bunch of obstacles and kept persevering through a variety of setbacks. Confronting fear and anxiety, tolerating a lot of risks, maintaining a relentless focus on an ambition despite the odds or opinions- those are the ingredients that differentiate folks who make it and those who don't. And it's in those realities that we develop the resolve that will sustain us no matter what comes.  This week I'm so thrilled for my new friend and Nascar racing sensation, Natalie Decker, to join us in our ongoing conversation about dreaming big. She not only embodies focus and determination but also someone who knows what it takes to push through setback after setback.

Michael W. Smith - Lessons From His Father

With Father's Day this Sunday, this is your official reminder- it's not too late to send a gift! Honoring the dads, granddads, and father figures in our lives is a great way to not only acknowledge them but also to give a nod to God for placing them in our lives.  I know that Father's Day can be a mixed bag. Not everyone grew up with a kind, loving dad in their lives. There are many dads themselves who struggle with regret or heartbreak because of the broken relationships they have with their own kids.  Regardless, this week is an invitation to lean into whatever you need to. It's a reminder that the story with your dad or as a dad isn't finished yet, there's still more to be learned, or still more to be grieved. So let the conversation I have with Michael W. Smith about his latest book be a guide to the reflection work you need to do.  Michael W. Smith, a multi-platinum recording artist, has won three Grammy Awards, forty-five Dove Awards, an American Music Award, and has sold more than fifteen million albums. He has also given back to the global community, having raised funds to battle AIDS in Africa alongside U2’s Bono; started Rocketown, a safe haven for young people in Tennessee to meet and find hope; and has helped to improve more than 83,000 children’s lives through Compassion International. With a career spanning more than four decades, Smith has also starred in two films and written fourteen books, including his newest The Way of the Father: Lessons from My Dad, Truths about God. He lives with his wife, Debbie, in Franklin, Tennessee. They have five adult children and sixteen grandchildren.

Michelle Williams - Getting Real and Sorting it All Out

There are so many ways to get distracted from pursuing our big ambitions. Some of them, though, are much more serious than others- like depression and other mental health challenges. We can't separate our mental health from the rest of our lives- it's the foundation for everything. That's why it's so important to develop habits of getting real, being authentic and honest with friends, and seeking help when you need it. This week, on the Dream Big Podcast, we're engaging in a serious discussion about mental health with a dear friend of mine who is articulate and incredibly genuine. About Michelle Williams: Michelle Williams is a Grammy Award-winning recording artist and actress who rose to stardom as a member of the R&B mega group, Destiny’s Child, and most recently appeared as the Butterfly on Fox’s hit series, The Masked Singer. Her successful solo albums include Heart to Yours; Do You Know; Unexpected, which spawned the internationally charted single, “We Break the Dawn”; and Journey to Freedom, which featured groupmates Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland on the single, “Say Yes.” Also a talented actress, she debuted on Broadway in Aida (2003) and starred in productions of The Color Purple (2007), Chicago (2009–10), What My Husband Doesn't Know (2011) and Fela! (2013). Michelle is passionate about raising awareness about mental health and about sharing the lessons she has learned in her own struggle with depression.
