177. All My Hope Is Found in Jesus

10/21/2020
When life goes in a direction we didn't expect, the evil one tempts us to abandon our hope in Jesus and to question God. No matter what storms come our way, we have to remember that Jesus is good, He loves us, and our hope must remain in Him. In this episode, Mackey encourages us to remember that real faith and stability comes from relying on Jesus despite the storms that come our way. God doesn't bring the storms, but he can use them to test and solidify our faith in the Lord. Key...

176. No Phony in This Macaroni

10/7/2020
It is very easy to look the part without being the real deal. It's much harder to actually be the real deal. That's because being the real deal comes with a much higher cost, and not everyone is willing to pay up. But being the real deal for yourself and your family will also pay out much more over time than simply pretending to be a person of character. In this episode, Mackey explains why he wants to be the real deal for family and how he goes about it. Key Takeaways -Don't just look the...

175. Working Towards Spiritual Maturity

9/9/2020
Spiritual maturity has nothing to do with age and everything to do with listening to God. We become mature and complete when we listen to God. This listening is at the beginning of prayer. When we listen to God's voice, he keeps us on track. Listening is active in a couple of different ways: 1) We must actively listen to what God is leading us to in life, and 2) we must listen to the Word with our actions, for example by loving each other as He loves us. Key Takeaways: -We become mature...

174. Our Invitation

9/2/2020
Maturity isn't about age, and being a complete person isn't about having all the right answers. To be fully mature and complete, we have to follow the example of Jesus, who fully depended on God the Father. In this episode, Mackey explains how God invites us to maturity and completion when we fully depend upon Him. Key Takeaways: -You become mature and complete when you depend on God. -Jesus never asks us to do something that He has not already done. -The more generous you are, the...

173. Be a Second-Miler

7/8/2020
If someone asks you to go one mile with them or for them, go two miles instead. It's easy to think: No way! That's twice the distance, after all. But leaders will go the second mile willingly and without being asked. That's because going the second mile means counting others before yourself, and that's what being a servant leader is all about. In this episode, Mackey explains the key components of being a second-miler, someone who doesn't just go one mile, but instead chooses to go two. Key...

172. Jesus, Race, and Where We Go From Here

6/17/2020
There is a conversation going on in our country and around the world about race and inequality. There is a lot of right thinking coming to the surface amidst the turmoil, but right thinking does not change things; right action does. In this episode, Mackey encourages us to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves, to speak up for what is right with unrestrained boldness, and to never hesitate to step in and help someone in need. Key Takeaways: -We don't protect things we don't...

171. Finish Strong

6/10/2020
The only way to finish strong is to give your best to the cause or goal straight through (not to) the finish line. There will be real consequences for our world if this generation of coaches fails to finish strong. You are that generation, and you have a great responsibility to your athletes, your family, and future generations to prepare the leaders in your locker rooms for the world they will face tomorrow. Part of that preparation involves teaching tomorrow's leaders how to finish...

170. Helping Your Kids Live into Their Purpose

6/3/2020
We are on a great adventure with our kids. Sometimes it might feel more like an endless waiting room sit at the doctor's office, but that's part of the journey. The parents primary role in their child's life is threefold: teaching right from wrong, speaking the truth in love, and reminding them that God is always near them. In this episode, Mackey encourages us to adventure with our children as guides and accomplices without trying to tackle the adventure for them. Key Takeaways: -Every...

169. How Belief Builds a Strong Character

5/27/2020
When talking about character traits, belief might not be at the top of your list of traits. After all, what impact does belief have on your character? In this episode, Mackey proposes an answer to this question: Belief in something greater than yourself helps you to push harder, faster, and longer.

168. Stop Limiting Yourself!

5/21/2020
Your health limits how far you can go in life. When you're in poor health, it limits what you can do and the impact that you can have on others. That's not to say that illness or obesity will always prevent people from reaching their dreams or influencing their community. But it is true that the healthier you are, the further and faster you can go. Health isn't about just one thing, but to get healthy you do need to take one step in the right direction every day. In this episode, Mackey...

167. Celebration is Contagious (and so is complaining)

5/14/2020
Celebration is contagious. When we see someone smile or laugh, we want to smile and laugh with them. Complaining is also contagious, though. When we hear someone complain about the weather, it makes us realize it's too hot, too muggy, or too something when moments before we were enjoying a beautiful day. When we hear someone complain about a situation we're coping with well, we suddenly find it harder to cope. The words that we use and the things that we do are contagious to others. In this...

166. The Upside Down Way of Living

5/8/2020
God's grace gift is for all who believe, and all people need it. This gift has the power to transform us from the inside out. When we come to the gospel to be transformed so that we are more like Jesus, we are honoring God's grace gift. In this episode, Mackey invites you to think about how God's grace gift is calling you to live in an upside down way. How has God's grace gift changed your life?

165. Great Reset

4/29/2020
There will be times in our lives when we need to hit the reset button. When something keeps us from living out the purpose that God has for us, that's a reset moment. When we let anything other than God have control over us, that's a reset moment. In this episode, Mackey reminds us that God has a purpose for each of us, and sometimes, we need to hit the reset button to get back to that purpose. Key Takeaways: -Faithful, consistent work is better than big, inconsistent changes. -God is for...

Episode 164. Dependability vs. Ability

11/13/2019
“Because I said so” isn’t just a statement of authority. It’s also a statement of dependability: Because I said so, it will be done. Dependability is all about doing what you say you are going to do. Dependability will always beat ability because no matter how much talent you have, it’s worthless if you can’t be depended upon to do what you said you would do. In this sample from the 2Words Character Development curriculum, Mackey lays out the difference between ability and dependability,...

Episode 163: Closing the GAP

11/6/2019
You cannot defeat sin on your own. No human being can. We rely on God to direct us to the correct path, we rely on our feet to carry us there, and we rely on our family and friends to provide strength to combat our weaknesses. During this live talk, Mackey discusses creating a gameplan to fight the weaknesses that we all have. Your weakness is someone else’s strength, and together with a gameplan, the gap can be closed. Key Takeaways: -You get great at what you get reps at. -Recognize...

Episode 162. Living Family First

10/30/2019
In our latest episode, Mackey is talking about the simple, yet difficult practice of living family first. It is okay that family goals COST something because your family is more important than your goals. When you put your family goals above your personal goals, your personal goals will fall in line and your personal goals serve your family goals.

Episode 161. One Day Is This Day

In our latest episode, Mackey is coming to us live sharing 2 words with us, One Day. We tend to think of “one day” as a far off day in the distance. We think that “one day” is synonymous with “some day”. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow isn’t promised, and the only day we have is this ONE day.

Episode 159: Iron Sharpens Iron

10/9/2019
Iron sharpens iron only when the two pieces come into contact or into conflict with one another. The iron is not broken, but sharpened by this encounter. In the same way, we can sharpen the people close to us, and allow them to sharpen us at the time. In this episode, Mackey explains why we need the mindset that we’re going to challenge our family and friends, so that we can sharpen them through competition. We love them, and we want the best for them, so we are willing to be the tough iron...
