Wow. This conversation with James Layman really is a "wow" episode. It is packed with meaning and importance from the beginning to the end. Many times when we hear the phrase "Kids these days..." it is packed with negative connotations. James makes his life about turning that around and lifting and serving and empowering "kids these days" to be the leaders of the future. He shares several powerful stories that bring goose bumps.
A couple of very meaningful phrases that come up in this conversation, and phrases that I have used multiple times in the last few weeks since our initial conversation are as follows: "Silence is where we create the stories in our own heads." To learn how powerful this phrase is, listen in. The other is paraphrased as such: A conversation starts in the armpit and goes all the way to the tips of the fingers. Make sure you listen past the bicep.
The "In Their Own Words" segment at the end is also very poignant. James reads a poem that his mother wrote for him when he was quite young, but that he didn't find until many, many years later, after his mother had passed.
Just enjoy! You will not be disappointed.
