Are you getting exhausted, discouraged and feel like you can’t get it right even though you feel like you’re doing all the right things? Maybe it is because you aren’t partnered with God? When you do partner with God you get new downloads because he wants you to succeed. Then you can operate for a space of pure joy.

Listen to Kevin and Donovan discuss how to operate from a place of joy, some advice from Kevin’s band-member Matt, Donovan’s love for adventure, Kevin reminisces with childlike wonder over Peter Pan and The Goonies, Donovan discusses the ‘Secret Door,’ and Kevin gets called out for his creepy, pre-show joy tank filling technique.
