THIS IS EPISODE 454 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Bob Goff is one of the most unique people in the United States. These days, he is most widely known as the New York Times-bestselling author of “Love Does,” released in 2012, and “Everybody Always” in 2018.
Before Goff was an author, he was making a difference around the world as the founder of Restore International (now known as Love Does), which he started in 2001 to “find daring, productive and effective ways to fight the injustices committed against children.” Love Does now works to promote human rights and education in current and recovering conflict zones. It works in Uganda, Iraq, Nepal, Somalia, Afghanistan and India.
Goff also serves as an adjunct professor at Pepperdine University, in both the law school and the graduate degree programs, with courses such as Nonprofit Law in the school’s Global Justice Program. In a previous career, he was a trial lawyer.
He’s also an international speaker and launched the Dream Big Framework in 2016, a curriculum and workshop designed to motivate people to accomplish their biggest dreams and ambitions.
On this episode of the podcast, we talked to Goff at a conference in Dallas about his testimony of faith, why he wears a Boston Red Sox hat every day, why the people he learns the most from aren’t those that have it all together, starting a New Year’s Day parade on his street, and the desire he has to simply love like Jesus. Bob is great and you’ll love his story.
Every time we see people as ordinary, we turn the wine back into water.
