#20: Kids, Anxiety, and Sports: Charlie McMahan

I have long believed that God doesn’t specialize in perfection, instead God specializes in redemption. Taken the brokenness in our life and turning it in to an opportunity for glory of God to be seen on Earth. Those words could not have been more true for the ministry of my guest on this week’s podcast Charlie McMahan.

Kids, Anxiety, and Sports

Dive into the anxiety, the intensity, and the overall feelings around youth sports. In my latest podcast I give a short teaser (about 15 minutes) of thoughts on the topic. However, over the next four weeks we are going to do a deep dive.

Four weeks, four interviews, and a whole lot of thought. I’m excited to be on this journey with you and I pray that this topic influences you as much as it has influenced me.

This weekend in church I am going to be talking about one of the most personal topics in my life: anxiety. Anxiety is something (I’m learning) that impacts so many people throughout the world. The Anxiety Disorder Association of America estimates that over 40 million people suffer from an anxiety disorder, and who knows how many countless more suffer from occasional anxiety.

Can I confess something to you? Lately, I feel as if  I can’t pray enough, that no amount of time talking to the Lord is going to be enough. My heart has been yearning for more and more time. I find that during this season all I can do is pray and pray and pray.
