068: Celebrating Every Little Win with Todd & Brooke Tilghman


The journey is the destination!” 

In this episode, season 18 winner of The Voice, Todd Tilghman, and his beautiful wife, Brooke, share from their book, Every Little Win: How Celebrating Small Victories Can Lead to Big Joy. Like most of us, the Tilghman’s have experienced significant lows in their marriage, ministry and personal lives right alongside the highs and victories. And like Paul, they have learned the art of being content in every season.

While Todd’s experience on The Voice was a big win, it is not what made him or his family who they are today. Long before winning the national competition in front of millions of people, Todd and his family learned to be faithful and grateful in their simple, every day life. Rather than accredit the victory to their own talents and abilities, Todd and Brooke view their lives as evidence to the overwhelming, abundant grace of God.

God wants to reveal Himself through your life as well! He wants to fill you with joy every day as you shift your focus to recognize the little wins all along the way.
