When asked which role he prefers – teaching high school, coaching soccer, serving as a blended family expert, or being a husband and father – Joel Hawbaker has a hard time choosing. All of these roles combine to form his personal purpose, says the Alabama native.

In the latest episode of the Make Meaning Podcast, Joel speaks with host Lynne Golodner on having a growth mindset, the purpose of education (hint: it’s to become a better human being and better understand the world), taking time to blend families, banishing the divorce stigma, his love of soccer and so much more.

In this episode, Lynne and Joel Hawbaker discuss:

  • Shifting perspectives
  • How history doesn’t change – only our interpretation does
  • Losing his dad to cancer and resolving lifelong anger
  • Making sure your marriage is strong
  • The importance of faith
  • Re-evaluating history
