Lynn Taylor tells about his recovery from a car accident (which nearly derailed him from becoming a fighter pilot) and a heartfelt experience God had with him as he helped one of his sons.

Episode Discussion Points

  • The incredible story of how he became a screenwriter and how his story is going to become a movie.
  • The car accident that derailed his dream
  • The miracle that happened for him to be released from the hospital so he and his fiance could still get married (in a full leg cast and in a wheelchair).
  • How he was confident he would get back in shape, but if not it wasn’t going to be because he gave up.
  • Lessons of patience when plans get delayed
  • You need a team to support you in your life to help you achieve your dreams
  • How he almost gave up on his dream during fighter pilot training due to sheer exhaustion, and the talk with his wife that kept him going.
  • He believes life isn’t a test—it is more like a school. We are here to learn and grow.
  • What Aristotle’s “golden mean” means to him
  • How God looks at us as His children and His goals for us as His sons and daughters
  • The transformative spiritual experience he had talking to his son one day when God taught him how he views all His children: with peace, compassion and love.
  • Here is what he told his son, “I love you. Everything is going to be okay. Just don’t quit.”
  • “You decide what goes on in your head and in your heart.”
  • Let negative emotions flow through you and if you are stuck in an emotion like anger, you can ask God to help you get rid of it. He is always willing to take it.
  • If you know you need to let something go, but are having a hard time, pray for the desire to let that feeling or emotion go as a baby step forward.
  • In the midst of a POW training how he found a little bright spot and was able to pass a message of hope throughout his company by acting on it.
  • “If you ever feel alone it is usually because you are looking inward, not outward.” Serve others, or allow them to serve you as needed.
  • Serving and being served perpetuates love. God didn’t mean for us to live life alone.
  • When life is like a hurricane, remember to “Be still and know that I am God.”
  • God isn’t going to set you up to fail.

Some of my Favorite Quotes

  • “The rough memories fall into shadow.”
  • “As long as there was any chance at all, I was going to pursue it with every chance that I had.”
  • “Life is like a gym. It is a mental, emotional, spiritual gym.”
  • Your attitude may not influence your destination, but it definitely influences your journey.”
