Are You Real | Finding Your Purpose

Jon Fuller is on a mission to be a true example of Christ in his life and in his work. He introduces you to men and women of faith who have walked different paths to find a true Christianity that they live out each and every day. Some paths have been bumpy and filled with debris, but through it all, grace and faith have been a sustaining force in the lives of these men. You won't find any fake and phoney Christianity here.....just real people with a heart for God and living out His call on their lives. Join us for new episodes each week. We'd love it if you'd share the show with other men of faith who need support and encouragement along their journey.

Today’s guest is Robby Dawkins. I met Robby through Michael McIntyre, who has introduced me to so many great people. Robby is a 5th generation Pastor who has ministered in over 58 nations. He’s been in some pretty scary environments that are hostile to Christians. The focus of today’s conversation is Robby’s quest to live out the book of Acts. There are so many ways that Christians can be activated to literally change and impact the world for Christ. As we struggle to figure out what our purpose is, we can take comfort in knowing that in following the example of Christ, everything else after that will fall into place. We don’t have to wrestle with it. We don’t have to struggle with it. We are promised it will happen. Seek yet first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you!

Did you know that God provides us with a recipe for happiness in Psalm 1:1-3? This happiness provides us with a steady supply of dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. You see, God created us with an addiction to these neurotransmitters, and His Word encourages the specific behaviors and healthy habits that replicate, create, and sustain the addiction that God put into us at Creation. Every addiction that is the enemy destroying God’s good creation causes us to need more and more of a bad habit to create less and less of a good feeling. But the healthy habits that God created for us to have, bring life to us and those around us. Connecting with the right people, discovering the right things, and creating the right productivity in your life will to happiness.

I’m so excited to introduce you to today’s special guest, Pastor, and Author Mark Moore. We discuss happiness, his new book, building a church, the one thing that men will not come out and say, how to help your spouse win, and so much more. Please join us for this episode of “Are You Real”!

Pornography, drug abuse, lying, and financial deceit. What do these things have in common? They are all forms of betrayal. Today’s guests, Jay, and Lori Pyatt are Certified Relationship Mentors, who help couples after betrayal. Jay and Lori share their very own personal experience with betrayal, redemption, and restoration concerning his long-term addiction to pornography.

Jay helps men overcome pornography addiction and other sexual sins in their lives, and teaches them how to rebuild trust in their marriages after the truth comes out. Lori works with women after betrayal of any kind, following the “Betrayal Trauma” model, which can often get women to a better life in a matter of months, rather than decades.

Jay discloses the scripture that is close to his heart, reminding him that we are all redeemable, how he learned to listen to the voice of shame from the enemy that tells us we are not, and how he and Lori learned to recognize how much grace and love that Jesus Christ has for us. Tune in to discover the new foundation they laid down to heal their marriage. You don’t want to miss this.

John introduces us today to Vivian Mabuni, a national speaker and writer with a passion to share hope and life through intimacy with God. Listen in as Vivian discusses wrestling with the goodness of God, and walks us through the devastating aftermath of the 90’s Rwandan genocide. She describes to us how the image of God being reflected through the Rwandan people was breathtaking and awe-inspiring. She also has a lot to say about women in ministry! Did you know that Jesus was counter-culture for the time when it came to interacting with women? Find out what this means on today’s episode.

Vivian has 30 years ministry experience on staff with CREW (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ). Vivian grew up in Colorado as a cultural buddhist and came to Christ in high school. As a teen, she drove herself to the mall and bought her first bible. She tried to read it but it just didn’t make sense. Around this time her father moved the family to Hong Kong, and Vivian grew angry with God. She didn’t know anyone, she couldn’t speak the language, and yet…God met her right there in Hong Kong, of all places! Vivian is an author of “Open Hands, Willing Heart: Discover the Joy of Saying Yes to God”, a book on surrender.
