Do you have a heart for service? Have you been in a place where helping might mean letting go of your own personal biases and privileges? How do you hold onto your calling when it seems like everything around you is conspiring against you? Host Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST member Darren Tipton for a special one-on-one interview. Darren shares his journey from being a 10-year-old boy who wandered into a nursing home after his grandmother died...looking to find other grandmothers to love;  to offering no-judgement rides, as a young adult, to spring breakers who were intoxicated; to "standing in the gap" for people as the leader of Project Humanity. Be prepared to be inspired.

Writing is an author’s special gift they share with the world. But does a story manifest itself, guiding an author through the process, or does an author write what is in their mind? Host, Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Alan Anderson, Lisa Baker King, Alexandra Folz, and Berni Xiong to discuss the origin of their creative process, and to share from which tools and resources they glean inspiration.

This conversation was inspired by this quote from The Great Work of Your Life, by Stephen Cope:

“Well, the book has a spine. A dharma. But you don’t know what it’s dharma is until you begin to write it. Forget about all the things you said to yourself about your book at the beginning of the project, or what you told your editor or what you wrote in your brilliant book proposal. Know the book has its own dharma which will slowly reveal itself to you. And then you have a choice. You can choose the books dharma.”

Key Takeaways:
