When a man found it, he hit it again. And then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Don’t I remember go back to the spiritual kickoff on Monday, if you want to dig deeper into what that scripture is telling us, and really unpack that in that episode, so that you’d go check that. And then from this week, the Wednesday episode, what did we talk about?
We talked about being all in and we had Adam Palmer, the purple heart recipient that is out there living his life every day, serving God, bringing so many men to Christ. And he just unpacked his amazing story of how he lived life before he met God. He was there. He had the struggles he had the devices that so many guys turn.
And then he enlisted, he went into the army and then you got until explosion, he literally was blown up and that’s where he found God and had those moments. Sometimes it’s those defining moments. That’s where he leaned in and he decided to go all in and he unpacked so many different ways that he’s ministering to people that he’s trying to help people understand what going all in, looks like and living a life for Christ.
And it was just a beautiful story and that they were that the mission trip that he did, 48 states, 48 days every year, all these cities, all these people passing out, gospel tracks, passing out water bottles of water and granola. But what I remember about when he was leading me up to that point, when that conversation, he did so much work on his own, trying to force it for a year, but I wasn’t.
And then when God was ready, he moved so fast. Adam could barely keep up and they were off to the races and what a beautiful story, what a beautiful ministry, a way that they’ve been able to serve so many people. So guys, I’m telling you what just think about in matters, what your, everything you do matters.
It makes an impact. You need to recognize that. Particularly as man, we got to make an impact. We have to recognize that. How important it is to live our life every day to serve others and to try to help became them grow. So guys, go check out that episode on all in with Adam Palmer, he was phenomenal.
On fun Friday, we’re going to give you some tips, some health the self tip. Okay. Let’s dig into this. A health tip right off the bat. I’m going to give you a ways, an idea that you away for you to consume more content. Now hear me out. If you’re listening to audio books books on tape, or you listen to podcasts without like you’re listening to the lie within us right now.
Maybe there’s other shows. Maybe there’s your big YouTube person track consuming that content at one and a half or two times. Speed. Okay. Now I get it, Chris, that makes no sense, but trust me, I made this adjustment, Alison and everything in one and a half. I don’t find two times to be really my tastes are I like one and a half times.
But you’re able to get through so much more content and he really you’ll be surprised at how quickly your brain can train itself to consume that material at that rate. And then he also you’ll love how much more content you can get through. I have so many podcasts and different areas that I try to consume on a regular daily basis.
And it’s a blessing. The one, when I tried this, I was very hesitant, but this really opened my eyes and it challenged my mind against a health tip. We’re talking about. To help me grow and now I can push through and get so much more there’s their sermons. I listen to conservative podcasts and all these different areas.
Try one and a half, two times speed and see what you like, see how they, how it goes for it. I think you’ll never go back once you make that switch now for a well. Are in contrast to this week’s topic, we talked about being all in. I want to remind you guys about diversification.
Okay. What is S a big word, but we just basically need to make sure that we’re not putting all our eggs in one investment basket. Okay. And it’s I get it. It’s great. We want to be committed to our investments and we’ve got to think about an owner’s mindset. I get that, but there are many different sectors of investment.
And different types of categories that she can look at that you can lean into. You have real estate mutual funds, ETFs stocks build strength with diversification. Because even if you just want to go stocks, they’re different sectors of industry, right? So if you have everything lined up in pharma, for instance, maybe you need to think about the industrial sector, no one trying to figure out different sectors.
You can look at to really, what you’re trying to do is you’re trying to mitigate your risk. You’re trying to minimize that as much possible. So when you think about your investment portfolio, look at it because if you’re just all in a one mutual fund that probably isn’t the best strategy.
Now, if that mutual fund is very diversified, that’s something to consider. But again, I want you guys to start thinking about diversification. How can you diversify to really spread out your risk? Okay. So think about there’s your stairs, your. Cell tip. I want you to go all in what you marriage all in.
Okay. And I’m gonna give you three things. I want you to consider. I want you to plan regular getaways with your wife, just you and her. Okay. Do this as often as you can I get it? You got a budget for this. I understand that, but let’s make it a priority to have that one-on-one time with her. Number two, I want you to make date nights sacred and turn off your phones during this time.
If you if you really can’t some guys, I get it, we’re all addicted to these smart phones, put it in airplane mode, leave it in a vehicle try to do something. So what, when you’re at that table with her, in those moments, you can have conversation. It just crushes me. When I go out with my wife and we’re sitting at the table, we’re talking and you look around and there’s people, obviously there they’re out to dinner together.
They look like they’re husband and wife, maybe their boyfriend. But they’re not looking at each other. They got their head down in their phone during the meal. Don’t let that be. You leaning right here, guys. Step up. Number three, write small love notes and leave them for her to find, okay. Small, random acts.
It’s going go remind her how important she is. And this is going to be a great way to honor your wife. It’s also going to take her down. And you, and depending on how things is going, you can make them maybe a hinting love note to some activities that may happen that evening. Okay. That builds anticipation, but it just shows her that you were on her mind.
Okay. Hey guys, I’m not saying I get all three of these right. All the time, but he’s a three tips. These are three areas that I think can really help you with your marriage, because I want you to go all in. You need to be all in on your marriage. Plan those getaways with her, make those date nights sacred and then plant those love notes.
So they’re your three tips guys from a health standpoint, one and a half, two times speed wealth. Let’s get diversified in our portfolios and then self go all in on your marriage. Really go all in.

Now, if you don’t get that, you may want to go do a little Google there. There’s a little wordplay there. Anyway. Number two, I never thought orthopedic shoes really would work for me, but I stand corrected.
So there you go guys. Number one, my math teacher call me average. How mean number two, I never thought orthopedic shoes would work for. But I stand corrected that depending on where you’re at, and that was more of the technical engineer type people, you may lean towards number one, but hopefully they bring a smile to get a chuckle.
