How To Human

What if there was a way to show up for work, for your family, or for yourself without feeling exhausted? What if, instead of dreading talking to your coworkers the night after an election or the big game, you actually felt equipped to place your relationship above your opinion?

When it feels impossible to deny the work-life tension, Carlos offers a better way. In a 3-part, story-filled journey, Carlos will take his audience from distracted, divided, and disconnected to engaged, curious, and re-envisioned. 

His philosophy? BE human– reconnect with yourself and regain your capacity to SEE humans who don’t think like you, look like you, believe like you, vote like you, etc. and FREE humans to walk alongside one another toward common goals despite differences.

You don’t have to choose burnout or avoidance. There’s a better way. A human way.

Moment Maker

Life is made of moments. What are you doing to make the most of them? In Moment Maker, Carlos Whittaker teaches you how to make each moment count, so those moments add up to a life rich with meaning, deeply satisfying, and full of purpose.

Carlos shares powerful stories and examples from ordinary life that have formed his practical and meaningful game plan for living on purpose and with purpose. In these pages, he will guide you to:

  • Increase awareness of your surroundings, the people you encounter, and the needs of others
  • Recognize opportunities that present themselves and be encouraged to seize them
  • Discover how to create, receive, and rescue key moments in everyday life
  • Unlock the satisfaction of living to the full depth of your life's potential

All around you there are opportunities to meet a need, shift your focus, and begin healing. It is time to become a Moment Maker.

Kill the Spider

Many of us work hard to be a “better person,” only to get caught in a web of bad choices and destructive thought patterns.

In Kill the Spider, Carlos shares his journey of knocking out deep-rooted habits that were hurting his relationship with others and with himself. Through humor and vulnerability, Carlos will help your team do the same and walk away with the questions and resources they need to 

* Identify the hidden spiders that haunt them– the real causes behind worry, shame, addiction, isolation, etc.
* Clean up the cobwebs of unhealthy coping mechanisms
* Kill the spider for good by trading lies for truth

When we replace false beliefs about ourselves with honesty and truth, we will discover a freedom that allows us to show up for our friends, family, and colleagues like never before.

How to Humanby Carlos Whittaker

How to Human

by Carlos Whittaker

A much-needed reminder about what it means to be truly human in a world where people feel increasingly disconnected from each other and from God, by the popular author of Enter Wild.

It sometimes feels like we’re all holding our breath—just waiting for the next outrage, tragedy, or stressor to knock us back again. Yes, a global pandemic forced us to be more physically isolated from one another. But beyond that, the connected disconnection of video meetings, masks, politicized hyper-awareness, tech addiction, content overload, and social unrest have all felt like a perfect storm eroding our relationships and even our ability to be human.
In How to Human, author and social media personality Carlos Whitaker leads us on a three-part journey, to "be," "see," and "free," that we can pursue in order to all live together as the best versions of ourselves. This fresh vision to reclaim our love and joy leads us to a collective breath of air as we exchange division for real relationship. We can live up to our full potential. We can learn to trust and care for one another. We can see the humanity in those different from ourselves. We can navigate hard times with grit, kindness, and a good joke or two. In this book Carlos shows us how to move from me to we to everybody. Isn’t it time we embrace the life-changing, hope-filled promise of being fully human?

How to Make Every Moment of Every Day Count

Every moment of every day, you have a choice to make. You can either let the minutes pass you by or you can claim them for what they are: opportunities to unlock the full depth of life's potential.

For Carlos Whittaker, renowned blogger, musician and worship leader, and husband and dad, living deliberately is a way of life. Making moments that are significant, memorable, or impactful are a part of how he navigates each day, and it has forever changed the landscape of his story.

In Moment Maker, Carlos explains his methodology for living intentionally and claiming moments that touch the lives of others, whether that be his family, his friends, his colleagues, or total strangers.

Carlos isn't asking anyone to make a big investment in time, energy, or money. He is simply uncovering the investment of attention. You don't have to buy tickets to special events or orchestrate elaborate surprises. You just have to be aware--of your surroundings, the people you encounter, the things that interest those important to you, the opportunities that present themselves--and be prepared to seize those moments and see lives changed.
