LIFE CHANGING MESSAGES
THESE ARE THE TWO TOPICS THAT DOUG IS MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT
FINDING JOY WHILE GOING THROUGH A CRISIS
People go through things that they never dreamed they would, and experience so much pain that it is almost unbearable. While going through a divorce that he did not want (including split custody of his four boys), Doug has experienced pain at a level that he describes as “crawling out of his skin.” The pain of not seeing his boys half of their lives is hard–very hard. In this message Doug shares how he drew closer to God than he ever; his walk with God maturing by leaps and bounds.
He shares about specific dreams that were shattered and how to move forward with God even when you feel like you can’t. In this message Doug will give you three practical ways to live out a joyful life even while going through the most difficult times—for no extra charge Doug even sprinkles in some funny stories about his crazy times with his four boys!
Allow Doug to inspire you with his real life experiences in this message so that you:
· Don’t waste your trial
· Realize adversary builds your faith and strength
· Gain an understanding of how God can use adversity to deepen our dependence on Him
· Know that God wants to complete something in you
WHY AND HOW TO SHARE YOUR STORY OF HOPE
So many of us want to share Jesus with people but we don’t know where to start. Think about sharing something that you own and with which you feel the most comfortable: your personal story. As Christians we all have a story. It does not have to be one of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Think about your prayer life and the miracles you have experienced – the biggest one is that God saved you by His grace!
There are people out there right now who need to hear your story of hope–in fact your story could save a life like Doug’s did. Your story could be someone’s only connection to Jesus. When Doug felt like he was at the end of his rope, he threw out all logical thinking and went for his dream –his BIG dream– and boy was he scared; it proved to be the most exciting experience he has ever had. He shared his story and through that started Hope 360 Ministries – a platform for Christians to share their stories and minister to those who can relate to them.
Join Doug on a journey to:
· Be inspired to share your story
· Hear the Biblical reasons why you need to share your story
· Experience what it will do to your faith as you step out and do it “afraid”
· Become equipped you to share your story (not just practically, but emotionally)
