Today, we’re talking about something that affects every area of life: money. I get to interview my good friend Chris Hogan—who will help us dream big and invest for our financial futures. Finally, we’ll wrap up with a few journal questions to help us better understand what the Bible says about money.


How to Win With Money in 2021

How do you feel about the word budget? Whether it makes you want to yawn, or run away, or pull out your spreadsheets and get to work, I want to convince you of one important truth today: A budget it not a killjoy. Sure, it doesn’t sound very exciting at first, but do you know what is exciting? Paying for your vacation with cash. Saving for your kid’s college. Feeling a sense of peace and contentment in your life because you have what you need.

This teaching segment focuses on how to use the power of a budget to move your money goals from dreams to reality.


Why It's Time for a Money RESET! with Chris Hogan

I get to sit down with my good friend and bestselling author Chris Hogan to unpack some of the common obstacles that keep us from making progress with money. If we want to actually make some changes in 2021, we need the right mindset, the proper tools and a spirit that’s willing to give it a try. Chris sums it up so well: “Don’t let pride get in the way of your progress. Ask for help and believe that you can get better.”


What the Bible Says About Your Money . . .

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’”

  • Luke 14:28–30 (NIV)


God’s word is full of practical wisdom about money. Today’s passage teaches us that we are called and commanded to plan—to sit down and estimate the cost of what we feel God leading us to do. If you want to get married this year, or have a baby, or buy a house, or build wells in Africa, you need a budget!

Here are a few journal questions to help you process today’s verse:

  1. How do you feel about the word budget? Be honest!
  2. What dreams do you have for this year? Write down all the hopes and goals you have of things you’d like to buy, invest in, and save for this year.
  3. Have you budgeted for the things you wrote about in number two?
  4. What is one thing you’re going to do this week to start working on your plan?

Ben Nemtin of MTV's 'The Buried Life': What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? (ep. 336)
In 2006, Ben Nemtin and three childhood friends started The Buried Life: a list of 100 things to do before you die. For every item on the list they accomplished, they helped a stranger cross something off their bucket list. Ben has crossed off 93 including write a New York Times bestselling book What Do You Want to Do BeforeYou Die?, make a TV show, be interviewed by Oprah (who called their mission “truly inspiring") and play basketball with President Obama (who said Ben is an “inspiration for a new generation”). Today, Ben shares what inspired the bucket list quest, its impact on millions to thrive personally and professionally and the practical steps you can take to create your bucket list today. SHOW NOTES: * Growing up in Pleasantville: Although Victoria, British Columbia + his childhood was idyllic, Ben put unsurmountable pressure on himself leading to anxiety and crippling depression as a young adult. After being dropped from the national rugby team, Ben dropped out of school and became isolated. * Rediscovering a zest for life, Ben + three friends set out on a two-week road trip with a bucket list of 100 things they’d like to do before they die, and helping others accomplish something on their list along the way. * MTV's The Buried Life * The series name The Buried Life was inspired by Matthew Arnold’s poem written in 1852 by the same name. * "But often, in the world's most crowded streets, But often, in the din of strife, There rises an unspeakable desire After the knowledge of our buried life." Read the full poem here. * A-Ha, the Ripple Effect: During the 14-year journey, The Buried Life team was inspiring others to create and go after their own personal goals and passions. * When creating an item for the list, which included play basketball with President Obama, ride a bull and sing the National Anthem to a packed stadium, they pretended they had $10 millions and that anything was possible. Get the full list here. * In 2006, a man named Brent wanted to deliver pizzas to the homeless shelter he spent three years living in. He pulled himself out of that homeless shelter by starting a business that relied heavily on a now-broken down truck. With $408, the team bought him a truck and felt the profound impact they were having on others. * Valuing authenticity, they battled to executive produce The Buried Life when MTV signed them to a contract in 2010. * “No goal is greater than any other goal.” Kissing the Stanley Cup was a reminder that no matter how mundane or epic a list item was, it was important as long as it was important to them. * “You’re 77% more likely to achieve your goal if you have someone checking in on you.” * Take action on your bucket list: * Take 30 minutes to develop your initial list with things that are important to you, understanding it will evolve as you evolve. * Create accountability by sharing your goals with others. * Break down the bigger, more important items into smaller, tangible steps. * “You are the architect for your own inspiration. Start taking steps towards your goals to create inspiration through action.” * “Accountability and inspiration through action will drive us towards our personal goals.” * Of the original 100, Ben looks forward to crossing off “make a movie” and “go to space”. * Organically over time, Ben graduated into the next evolution of his career as the outrageous list items seemed less intriguing. * How to manage + improve your mental wellbeing: * Acknowledge that feeling any type of anxiety or depression is okay. * Speak to someone you trust about these feelings, giving others the chance to help you. * Develop a Resilience or Mental Health Toolkit with things that increase your wellbeing. BEN NEMTIN'S LIVE INSPIRED 7 1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Overstory by Richard Powers and Third Door by Alex Banayan. 2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Naivety. 3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? Mugs from when my grandfather was in the war. 4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? President Obama. 5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? The truth will set you free. 6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Slow down and smell the roses. 7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? What do you want to do before you die? *** About our sponsor: Keeley Companies wholeheartedly believes that if you get the people right -the results will follow.

#128: Teaching Sign Language to your Children (with guest Elise Tate)
Sometimes your little ones throw tantrums, but wouldn’t it be nice to make them less frequent or easier to diffuse? As a parent, it’s easy to feel like you can’t ever figure out what is upsetting your child and everything you try seems to make things worse. A lot of the tantrums that happen are the result of the children’s inability to communicate with mommy or daddy. Teaching your children sign language can help in a big way! It’s also proven that your child learning sign language can improve brain development on top of aiding in communication. Elise Tate has written a wonderful book, Sign Me Up For A Happy Home, to help you kick-start that journey to clear communication with your child. Elise is the mother of two bi-racial children, known for her DIY tips and tricks, a frugal couponing pro, and wife of NFL wide receiver Golden Tate. She joins Dr. Meeker in this episode (and the next) as they talk about the benefits of sign language in a parent-child relationship, and she shares some amazing stories about how her children were able to tell her what they needed and help put an end to frustrating tantrums!
