Have you ever asked yourself where does motivation come from? Motivation comes in different sizes, shapes, and sources. It also keeps reinventing itself if you look closer.

I invited my friend and fellow musician Ethan Yates, who recently released his first song to Spotify, a devoted husband and soon-to-be dad. Ethan shares with us how the creative process to release his song was driven by his heartfelt motivation and how it has been constantly reinventing itself in his career path of music.

Join us, in this episode you will find inspiration, love, and lots of fun.

*** The number one thing to overcome fear is asking yourself “Can we be used by God?” - Ethan Yates ***

Ethan Yates is an American Christian singer/songwriter originating from deep East Texas. His love for music began when he was a kid, hearing his grandmother sing the harmonies to the most beloved hymns in the pew behind him at his small southern Baptist church.

Questions I asked
  • How did the song itself actually come about?
  • What was your wife’s reaction to the song you wrote for her?
  • Is there a worship album coming up?
What we learned about how motivation keeps reinventing itself
  • How to overcome fear to an uncertain future
