Having a hustle attitude, Robert McNair likes to win! Newly married, having a newborn, preaching every Sunday at his Church, his life plan was all coming to fruition. Until, nobody showed up to hear him give the word. With a new family, financial burdens, his marriage disintegrating and his dream of having a successful Church slipping away, he thought giving his all to God and trusting Him would break him so he was trying things in his own strengths.

Robert learned that in actuality, he was trusting himself and not God. When he learned he had to REALLY give things to God, that's when it all started to change for him.

I invite you to join our conversation as Robert and I discuss:

  • Passive Suicidal ideation
  • Losing Faith
