This Is Your Life: What Was Big in Season 4 and What’s Coming for Season 5
Thanks for helping to make Season 4 of This Is Your Life a rousing success. We’re taking a breather this week, but Stu McLaren and I will be back next week with Season 5.
Since I started podcasting, This Is Your Life has experienced over 10 million total downloads. And last month was our biggest month ever with 313,720 downloads. That’s a 5 percent gain on June with 297,594 downloads. There’s no way we could have done it without your ongoing interest and enthusiastic support.
Since we’re on hiatus this week, I thought you might enjoy a recap of Season 4’s most-downloaded episodes. Here are the top-five episodes:
I’m Looking for a Chief Financial Officer. Are You It?
When I left the corporate suite at Thomas Nelson a few years back I wanted to settle into the life of a solopreneur—writing, speaking, and coaching. Instead I built a lean, rapidly expanding multimillion dollar company.

What I found early on was that as my message resonated, my need for a team grew. There was only one of me, but there were also too many opportunities I couldn’t pass up. Soon a new strategy emerged, I set new goals, and formed a new company.
Now I lead an ambitious team of sixteen people. We’re creating products, launching courses, and business is exceptionally good. We’ve actually doubled our sales every year since I started the company. And that means I need to add another team member—a chief financial officer.

Memorial Day is a day we set aside to commemorate those veterans who have died in the service of our country. It was first enacted to honor those in the Union Army who died in the American Civil War. After the first World War, it was expanded to include American casualties of any war or military action.
I’ve been doing reader surveys since 2009, and I get excited every time the numbers come in. As far as I’m concerned, a reader survey is the best way to get real, useful, concrete data on the people I want to serve best: you.

Last month I launched my 2015 reader survey. I do a survey almost every year because it helps me gain clarity and improve the content I create. For the past few days, I’ve been pouring over the results.
To my delight, almost thirty-five hundred people participated. I want to share the results with you, along with how I plan to use the feedback to meet your needs and exceed your expectations in the coming year.
Welcome to Season 2, Episode 12 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this twelfth episode, Michele Cushatt and I discuss some of my crazy Christmas memories. I can’t believe she got me to share some of these!

For some, the word eucharist can be off-putting. It suggests ritual, sacraments, and liturgy. It can seem like the very opposite of a personal relationship with God.
But eucharist is word that all of us can embrace. It comes from the Greek, eucharisteó, which means “to give thanks.” This behavior should not only be central to the life of every Christian, but it’s also what distinguishes humans from all other created beings.
