All right, guys, welcome to the first fun Friday episode of the lion within us. You know what we’re all about? We’re trying to develop that community of Christian men that has the desire to unleash the lion within us. You know, we need more men stepping up and leading their families. So we’re working hard each week to build strength on health.
Well, Itself. And we’re going to do this together. Now this week, it was all about health. We talked about habits, Psalm one 18 verse 24 was really where we focused on this is the day which the Lord has made. Let’s rejoice and be glad in it. So we had animal, he talked a lot about morning habits and things that he does in the morning.
Things that I do in the morning, you know, the bottom line is guys find something that works for you, you know, just get the right habits, but wake up and do it right. Folk give God. Take care of your body, take care of your mind, right? You need to make sure you’re doing, being intentional about how you start your day as a lion, because lions don’t just start their day and roll over and hit the snooze button.
And then just finally figured they want to get up and, and have a little bit of coffee. And then, you know, no lions make the most out of. And you can do this, but start small then Adam and I talked about a lot of evening habits and that’s where we can really start losing it because lines we may get going in the morning.
We can figure that out, but end of the day, we’re tired. We’ve let our families, it can be tough. I get it. But in the evening we got to be careful. Because this is where our kids are watching this. This is where our wife is watching because this is where we can step up and lead, or we can choose to let Satan lead us.
Can’t let that happen. So Adam talked about some really things that he does with his wife and, and how their prayer life works together. And it was very convicting to me. I mean, that night after we record it, I had to go sit down and we talked to my wife about what do we need to change to start being more intentional about our prayer life?
Yeah. So there was some really good things that Adam talked about. So hope you enjoyed that episode. So going into different varieties, I’m going to give you a health tip, a wealth tip, and a self tip each week. Okay. We’re going to talk, we’ll have, we’ll have a little bit more fun as we walk through some of this, cause I know you’ve led your families all week.
I know it’s tough. So I’m gonna give you some fun things. The health tip. Get your little notepad and start tracking how much you actually move for a week. You make it simple. I mean, I know they have apps and they have everything’s electronic now, but what happened to good old school? Just a pen and paper and tracking how you did.
I walked 30 minutes. I did a little bike ride, whatever it is, track it and see how you did, you know that a little bit of motivation right there could be at your fingertips. And there’s something about actually writing it down that does something. So get your notepad, make you some notes on what you did to improve your health this week now.
This is a great time to catch up on some post holiday deals like outdoor lights, our official trees, all the things that we want to do outside to, you know, decorate for the, for the, for the holidays. It’s a great time. We’re w beginning, January, go out there and get those deals because it’s the first of the month, you may be able to really grab some good, some good items on, on, on, on a good price and the big well tip for the week for this week.
Get your budgets. This is January it’s a new month. Get your budget set up. Do not skip that because the people who build wealth who control their money, have a budget period. Now, a self tip. I’m going to go back to what Adam talked about. You know, he said he and his wife at the end of the day, they talk about three good things to them.
What what happened today? That was, that was good. And it can be hard to come up with those three, right? But this weekend, do that with your wife. Talk about, Hey, what three good things happen today? Because you know what? We need to be intentional about speaking good things into our life. I know life is hard.
Things come at us. They come fine at us, but find something and talk with her and make her give you three good things that she saw from today. Now I’m a big reader. So as you start listening to the line within us, you’ll know that I love reading. I consume so much content. I love books. The book that jumped out when I was thinking about this topic after walking through with Adam it’s, Tim Tebow’s book.
This is the day. This is a really good book that I read a few months ago. There’s actually a Bible study that goes along with it. And what I remember most about this is the day when I did this Bible study was the intentionality that I needed to take each day to own it, to do my best, to lead my family, because God gives us this.
This is it. This is all we know. We cannot think about tomorrow because we heard it. We are not promised tomorrow. So as a lion, you need to lead your family today and take advantage of today because today is the day they’re counting on you. You know, so lean into that. So to pick up this. Sure you can check it out, go to a library or something like that.
Check it out too. It’s a really good book. There is a good Bible study, a highly encouraged at, I think it’s the three or four part Bible study. It’s not very long. It doesn’t take you a lot. Get you a couple dudes, do it with them. So great way to, to get into the word. It has some fun. So this is the day by Tim Tebow.
That link will be in the show notes as well. Now I thought about on fun Fridays. You know, we’re a lot of these Christian man. You guys are dads. You’re out there. The old classic dad jokes. I will try to give you a couple of dad jokes every week. Feel free to use them. What’s your family. If they work, you got to give them credit where credit’s due.
Tell them that you got it from the line within us. Okay. So we’re in January. So let’s get a couple of January theme, dead jokes. So sitting down at the, at the dinner table, ask your family, which month does the Brady bunch like the most? Now this may need to be. Question because a lot of the kids these days don’t want to know what Brady bunch.
Yes. But say ask it to your wife. And then the answer is Jan. You Arie. Come on guys. Jan, come on, Jan. So anyway, there’s a Brady bunch jokes. Pull down way out now the second joke of the week, how does a penguin build a house? It glues it together. Get it igloo. So throw that one out there. I’m sure that’ll get a laugh from a small kids.
I want to leave you with a question to think about each week. I know these are fun Friday episodes. We’re trying to just give you some tips, make it some fun. But there is one question that’s been burning at me ever since we worked through this topic this week. Do you worship at the altar of your smartphones and guys?
This one has convicted me so hard. I mean, even the night that we recorded the episode with Adam, you know, I shared a, how I played that tune blast and that’s my way to calm down and kind of chill out and evenings. I intentionally did not play tune black. And you know what I woke up the next morning. So it w it it’s proven that you don’t have to have it, but seriously, do you worship at all three of your smartphone, the you wake up in the morning?
The first thing you do is look at your email or check Instagram, check Facebook, social media, wherever you’re at, because that has gripped us over the years. And as lions, we can’t let that happen. You know, smartphones came. Obviously, hopefully you’re, you’re streaming this to a smartphone. You may be listening to the podcast through your phone and that’s great.
There are great ways to get good things from your smartphones. We just need to make sure we’re not worshiping at the alter of them. Okay. That, that is really it. So gas. Thank you. Thank you for listening. Share this with others. We need to share this with other Christians. So they can understand, you know, how this can help them in their life because we are, nobody has this all figured out.
We have to work together. So please share this with other Christian man and Ray. Give that five star rating give a review because I don’t have the algorithms work guys, but they do. And the more that you’re commenting, the more feedback you give, the more amplified the lion within us will become. And the more people that it can serve.
And that’s what it’s all about. Now, this whole health, wealth and self thing. That’s a coaching process that we’ve developed. We really want to help them. Grow in their Christian walk and interfaith and how they lead their families. So we build a process around that. So reach out to us on the line within.us.
You can find all the links right there to connect with us directly, you know, follow us on Instagram. LinkedIn, all those areas, all those, those social media accounts will be linked there. But the line within.us is where you connect with us. You can learn about the coaching process. You can see our Bible study
We put a lot of effort into trying to building content to help you as Christian men lead your family. So gas, thank you for hanging with us for the first week. Come back next week. We’re going to be digging into more topics. And remember, today is a day that you can unleash the lion within .
