Episode 1: God’s Bootcamp


God’s Prepping Before Your Life’s Mission


As a Christian, and even more so as a Christian Entrepreneur, chances are you have been to God’s Bootcamp – maybe more than once. Maybe you are in it right now. If so, you’ll love this first episode of The Thriving on Purpose Podcast! You see, God’s Bootcamp is the training grounds where God preps us by teaching us and getting us ready for fulfilling our mission in life. What sucks about God’s boot camp is that it can be extremely grueling and full of hardships. What’s great about it is that you can’t imagine your life without it… once you’ve been through it.


In This Episode You Will:


  • Learn from the life of Moses and how his 40 year-long Bootcamp was necessary for his exceptional mission.
  • Learn how you are molded through your own Bootcamp to become the person you are meant to be.
  • Learn how Elisabeth and Sebastien’s lives were transformed through their particular Bootcamp.
