WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #337 is Sam Acho. Sam Acho is an NFL player, writer, public speaker, and humanitarian. He speaks widely at colleges, events, conferences, and churches, and is the co-host of The Home Team podcast. Sam is also the founder and president of Athletes for Justice, and a vice president of the NFL Players Association. He has been married to his wife Ngozi for 7 years, and they have 3 beautiful children: Caleb, Sophia and Kelechi. 

It’s awesome people like Sam that make me so happy to have men on The Happy Hour! In today’s episode, we chat about fun Super Bowl predictions, the process of transitioning to new seasons, and releasing his new book! He also dives into his journey of learning not to hide his emotions and allowing people to see him for who he is, the same way that The Lord sees us. I love when he says, “When I showed people ‘me’, I wasn’t shunned or rejected or tossed aside or thrown away or cast out. Instead I was embraced. I was loved. I was accepted. I was welcomed.” Sometimes we feel like we have to hide our thoughts and emotions because we’re afraid of what people will think if they see who we really are. The good news is that Jesus sees us for who we really are, and He never rejects us for that. It’s such a good reminder to accept that freedom we’ve been given. I’m so thankful for Sam joining us on the podcast today. Make sure to pick up a copy of his book Let The World See You!
