Every Little Win: How Celebrating Small Victories Can Lead to Big Joy
In this uplifting debut, Tilghman, a Mississippi pastor and past winner of The Voice
, and his wife, Brooke, emphasize the importance of celebrating small steps along the way to achieving one’s goals. In alternating sections, the couple explain how they have learned to exercise faith over fear and live joyfully by identifying ordinary “wins” in every situation—such as Todd’s early days singing in front of church members before graduating to bigger stages, a small but important “win.” Brooke, meanwhile, embraced her authentic self after struggling with anxiety, and learned to concentrate on her people skills when running the church while Todd was away with The Voice.
Todd describes how Brooke encouraged him to audition for The Voice
despite his hesitancy and acknowledges his previous tendency to be a people pleaser: “I’ve overcome the burden of trying to do everything right, and instead I simply follow where God leads me and share the love of Jesus the best I can.” In their transparency about choosing optimism, the Tilghmans will inspire Christians to focus on the small things.
