Everyday Discernment

Everyday Discernment

We make thousands of decisions daily, but how do you make the “right” ones? What if we could avoid some bad decisions by having a better understanding of God’s outline for our life? Some negative consequences from decision making are unavoidable, but the Bible gives us a game plan for our life and a road map which we can follow. Whether you make perfect decisions every time (if so I’d like to meet you) or you fail miserably at decision making, whether you are a Christian or want to learn more about God, this show is for YOU! This podcast will focus on learning lessons from the Bible that we can apply to our life as well as learning from amazing Christian guests. We will discuss how we learned from our failures and celebrate our victories. You will gain a better understanding of discernment which will help you make better daily decisions and deepen your walk with Jesus Christ. Tim has a following across multiple social media sites as “Discerning Dad.” Tim wrote the book “Everyday Discernment: The Importance of Spirit-led Decision Making” which was the precursor to this podcast.
