In 1997, Ellis Lucas was wallowing in despair at the Clay County Missouri Jail after his home was raided by a SWAT team in connection with a massive ring of drug and paraphernalia manufacturing. He could never have imagined the unbelievable life transformation that was about to occur...
Alone and scared in his jail cell, Lucas couldn’t help but flashback to a tumultuous life that included everything from childhood abuse to years of depression, drug and alcohol addiction, the premature loss of his mother, hatred of his father over their turbulent relationship, a violent car wreck, a near-death experience in a house fire, debts beyond his means, a broken marriage and estrangement from his children. There in his cell, Lucas was reminded of the fervent Christian faith his mother clung ever so tightly too, right up until cancer robbed her of every last breath.
As Lucas chronicled extensively in his highly acclaimed first book, The Potter And The Clay, before his case ever got to trial, he was given some startling and surely supernatural news. The authorities were not able to find a single one of his fingerprints in any room or on any possession in that entire house, despite the fact that he had touched practically everything in the place! All charges were dropped.
This month marks the release of Lucas’ new book, WANTED, and you can get it exclusively at www.ellislucas.com.

We all have our seasons that we go through, but for most of us, when tend to believe that we aren't worthy of sitting at the table and feast on the blessings that God has for us. We tend to be happy by just getting by and picking up the scraps. That isn't what God intended for us, and that isn't how we should live our lives. Today, Chris and I discuss just that, Our seat at the table and why we are not only welcomed at the table, but have a seat reserved for us!

Lies, Inadequate response, On going unprosperous situations we get stuck in, Negativity, Denial, Ego, Non belief in yourself-L.I.O.N.'s D.E.N. when you break it down this is a great way to look at things. We all fight the lies that are being told to us, from everywhere, through satan. we all feel like we have, or not prepared to have an adequate response to issues, situations where we feel stuck, and the negativity that surrounds us.
We sometimes live in denial, let our ego's get the best of us, and not believe in ourselves, and have to face situations that we are not prepared to handle, or feel that way anyways. In this episode with Chris, he and I talk about what people can do to overcome these issues, how this acronym can be useful in identifying what is happening in your life today. How you can have God help you get through whatever it is that is keeping you from your best. Remember, God protected Daniel from the lions, in THEIR DEN, what makes you think he won't protect you when you are in the enemy's den?!

This is the first episode in a series with my brother in Christ, Chris O'Such. Today we are speaking about shame, and how we deal with it, and how we can overcome it. Fact is, we all feel shame about something, and this can hold us back from achieving God's blessing on your life. This will keep us from achieving our true potential, and not being able to go and help others that are dealing with the same thing.
Chris and I get deep into this topic and Chris shares some personal shame that he had to let go of to help him become the Sheppard that he is. In earning trust in himself, and his peers, by doing something incredibly brave to unlock his potential in his own life, but also in leading others. Chris shares some great insight and tips on how to use not only God's word, but how it applies to your everyday life and struggle. Make no mistake, dealing with shame is an everyday struggle, and Christ opens up on how he took on the fight head on.

Besides procrastinating, more dreams die because of lack of support from a spouse or loved ones. You are telling yourself “NO” because of other’s opinions. Today, I am going to talk about why you don’t need to believe them, and why you just need to go get it!
The old saying is, you are entitled to your own opinion, but not your facts. In this episode I am detailing why it’s important to know the that “your truth” is nothing more than an opinion, and perspective, not fact. There is only ONE TRUTH and you have to realize that, if not you are only manipulating the situation.
In our fast paced world where we have more information at our fingertips than ever before, we have become complacent. We have lost our edge in thinking we have tomorrow to do it, when we really don't. When we develop our sense of urgency we put what is most important upfront and deal with today's problems accordingly. In this episode I will give you tips on how to accomplish your goals and develop you tactics on how to create a healthy sense of urgency.

Life as we know it is uncertain. We can always predict, and plan, but no one truly knows what life is going to throw at us when we least expect it, hence UNCERTAINTY. With the OODA Loop concept we can learn how to embrace that uncertainty and become more passionate about life, rather than emotional. In this episode I touch on how being emotional can just Lead to becoming irrational, and opens the door to anxiety, and depression.
