Tommy Thompson knows firsthand what it means to be overloaded and overwhelmed. He spent 35 years running multiple businesses while serving in church and raising a young family.  

Tommy was going 100 miles per hour – all for good things – until he found himself exhausted, stressed, and anxious. He and his wife launched into a 15-year process of learning to create margin in their lives and began to experience joy and rest. 

During this time, God was preparing them for an inconceivably difficult season of seeing their beautiful young daughter suffer as she battled cancer. 

“We knew that the only way we would survive this incredibly painful, hard season was to double down on creating space in our lives.” 

In this episode, Mike and Tommy discuss margin, marketplace ministry, and mobilizing guys. Learn how Tommy began to “right-size” his life and fulfill his calling to impact people’s lives for good and for God. 

“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21
