In This Episode:

After a little well-deserved break, Tyler and Mike are back at it. This time, the guys sit down with one of their most sought-after guests. Gordon DeWitt joins the Richest Men in Town conversation to share the rich lessons that his life has been teaching him over the last 47 years. His story begins as all good stories do…with a JC Penney’s suit, a Subaru Brat, and hoop dreams. Sprinkle in a life-changing Petra concert and a 3-day courtship with a cute girl in Texas and Gordon’s course was set. Gordon gives listeners a master class on authenticity through the challenges and trials that he and his wife have experienced and he also provides some insight into how they have supported each other to stay in the fight. The rich conversation with Gordon covers a lot of ground, including: 

  • “Dynamic God moments”
  • Friends serving as the Hands and feet of Christ
  • Being “An All or Nothing Guy”
  • Being acquainted with pain, suffering, and loss
  • The Power of bond and partnership to help carry the load
  • How God is equipping us to be able to accomplish our purpose here on earth
  • Enduring seasons of disillusionment
  • Strong relationship with who God really is
  • Acknowledging that how we feel is real
  • Remembering that there is a way back
  • The benefits of counseling and the need for help in receiving guidance

The DeWitts are living lives that matter. It has not been easy but they have not only found the strength to go through the unimaginable but have also found value, comfort, and perspective in helping others through similar challenges. To Gordon…thank you. Thank you for the way that you are showing up. To the DeWitt family…thank you and keep going.
