Gaining Perspective By Slowing Down (w/Caralee & Dale) – Episode 145

Gaining Perspective By Slowing Down (w/Caralee & Dale) – Episode 145

Dale returns from his extended break to join Caralee in discussing the positive effects of taking a break throughout July. Whether writing a new book or just taking a breather, he highlights the benefits of getting out of the normal routine of life, which allows you to gain fresh perspective and hear the Lord’s voice more clearly.

Caralee also shares how the Lord spoke some unexpected direction in her life concerning her family. As the season of co-hosting the 95Podcast comes to a close, Caralee reflects on the blessings that she has received after saying “yes” to trying something out of her comfort zone.

This episode highlights the importance of “giving up to go up” in our leadership.

Key Takeaways


1) The ability to hear the Lord’s voice more clearly increases whenever we set aside extended time away from the “normal” routine of life

2) Sometimes, the obvious thing to do is hidden from us when we keep living life “wide-open.” It’s hard to allow ourselves to consider new possibilities when we’re expending so much energy at maintaining a frantic pace.

3) As leaders, we must never forget that leading others is always a temporary assignment. The seasons of life and ministry should be approached with an “open-handed” approach.

4) It’s easy to say family first until it requires us to choose. Thankfully, Caralee made the right choice by putting her family first.
