So here we are, in 2022. I know a lot of people are glad to be done with 2020… and 2021. But let’s be honest, if you weren’t able to make the best of the bad situations that those years brought us, you probably won’t make the most of this year either. I don’t even… Read More »Happy New Year
This may be a strange thing to say (actually, it’s not), but it would seem that the time has come to hold the line. Stand your ground. I’ve tried to avoid getting too extreme over this, and hopefully this doesn’t cross the line either but you have to realize something… If you continue to “go… Read More »Hold The Line
I’m part of an online group of men that I pay to be in. It’s really targeted around personal development, physical fitness, and online business (as a quick and mediocre summary!) Everyone who is in this group has paid to be in it, so one can be sure that most of the guys are pretty… Read More »Men Have Lost The Plot
Introduction I work in multiple Church/religious fields. I also work in fields that are not even remotely religious. What do they have in common? They’re all trying to force employees to get a COVID-19 shot. While that’s fine for some people (and I’m all for the freedom to receive this shot, if you get to… Read More »Your Guide to Religious Accommodation for Vaccines (COVID-19, etc)
This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. It tracks back to masculinity and Christianity eventually, but we need to do some work to get there. Many people (including those who weren’t alive) tend to reminisce about the “good old days,” often referring to somewhere around the 1950s. The implication is that we… Read More »What Made The “Good Old Days” So Good?
This is the third part of our series on the 5 Key Relationships (5KR). “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25, ESV). Just in case you can’t detect a theme here, this relationship is the most important in your life AFTER you work on your… Read More »5 Key Relationships – Your Wife
Why does everything seem like such a struggle? This is something that I seem to be asking myself a lot lately. Why are my plans not working out the way I think they should? Why does it seem like my gifts aren’t being valued the way I think they should? I’m a Christian, doesn’t that… Read More »Why Does Everything Seem Like Such A Struggle?
“But you don’t know the things I’ve done…” After the last post on not being worthy of help, another issue was brought to my attention. This one is even more pervasive and evil than the last set of reasons. And it’s the idea that because of the things you’ve done in the past, you’re not… Read More »You Don’t Know The Things I’ve Done…
I’m not worthy of help. This is a paraphrase of something one of the men in my Facebook group said (to join the group, send me a message or check one of my older posts). I shouldn’t have been as taken aback by this as I was… but I was. But it totally makes sense.… Read More »I’m Not Worthy of Help
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. We’ve been given this idea that part of being a man is figuring things out on your own. Doing it yourself. We don’t ask for directions. We don’t read instructions. Real men don’t need help. In fact, if you DO need help, then you’re NOT A… Read More »Asking For Help Is NOT A Sign of Weakness
