We Just Got [inspired]! πŸ™Œ

Our team just got back from the Catalyst West conference on Friday and we left super inspired to charge on with the [goodness] we are all creating. If you don’t know, Catalyst is a conference for leaders who love the local church. They have great speakers, activities, music, and resources for people who are serving in leadership (paid or volunteer). In the past it has inspired us to move towards what we would eventually do with Uncommon [good]. This year was a huge affirmation of our vision to create community for people in a unique way.

On top of that, we loved the theme for this year: Fully Alive. Drawing from the words of Jesus who said He came so that we may “have life and have it to the full,” Catalyst took this theme to a really cool place. Many of the speakers talked about self-care and mental/emotional health. The importance of which is huge if you ever hope to lead others well. And we all lead someone at some point, right? Even if it’s just ourselves. So we want to share with you some of the most impactful nuggets from the conference. Read each of these through the lens of leading and caring for yourself or others…

“People who lack self knowledge react to life rather than respond to it.”
– Ian Morgan Cron

“We become better leaders by becoming better human beings.”
– Miles Adcox

“If you want to experience a better life with Jesus you must adopt the lifestyle of Jesus.”
– John Mark Comer

“You’ve got to lose what you know about yourself in the past to figure out what God knows in the future.”
– Sarah Jakes Roberts

“We find God’s will for our lives in our limitations”
– Pete Scazerro

“When you spend your day looking at others, you lose your purpose”
– Jamie Ivey

“There is a gap between the promise God has given you and the process it’s going to take to get there. You have to go through the process to make it to the promise”
– Bianca Olthoff

“God chose you for where you are. Serve where you are!”
– Jamie Ivey

“We are kept from our goals, not by obstacles, but by a clearer path to lesser goals.”
– Ben Hardy

In regards to that process of living into what God made you to do: 

“The more it takes out of you, the more it will make out of you”
– Bianca Olthoff

“The best thing you bring to leadership is your own transforming self”
– Ruth Haley Barton

We hope all of that was encouraging to you. It sure was for us! Now, keep going to see what you’re invited to next…
