What are the things that dominate your thoughts? Do you get anxious? Distracted? Worry? In today’s episode I tackle these questions, so let’s get started.

Too often I find myself distracted from things, not fully paying attention. It’s so easy to have a second screen open, to glance at another device, to be half-listening to someone who is talking. Even when I’m in church, and taking notes during the sermon, too often I have to keep...

When it comes to Thanksgiving, there are some pretty standard themes that get talked about. And they’re all good themes, like Be thankful, or how to practice gratitude, or appreciate being blessed, and so on. Nothing wrong with those ideas, but I want to talk with you today from a different perspective.

I want to talk with you about your attitude. There are very few things that have a bigger impact on the quality of your life and on...

Have you ever been scrolling through your social media and you see a meme, or video, or post that has a strange Bible verse in it? Usually, it is done in a negative way, often to be derogatory towards Christianity. Or someone will take a verse and use it to try and make a point?

It’s common. Really common. And it’s dangerous.

In today's episode I jump into why it is that we should never read a Bible verse, so let's get starte...

I’ve been helping men and working with men for a long time now, from informally helping out guys way back in the 80s (as in the 1900s), through leading live men’s events with Significant Man Ministries today. It is my calling and my passion, and to see the changes in men, and the resulting changes in their marriages and families is humbling.

And one of the things I have learned about Christian men is that we tend to fall for one of ...

In our culture, there is something dangerous, but we don’t often see it as such. It is something that can slowly, one small step at a time, take us down a path that leads us away from Jesus, even if it happens under the disguise of following him. And that something is the dangerous message of false teaching.

False teachers are not new, men and women who wish to twist and use scriptures as they desire have been around for as long as ...

In today’s episode I’m going to discuss a critical shift that has to be made in the conversation about your purpose, as a Christian man. There is a new perspective that may be required here, and it is a foundational principle of how we, as Christian men, can view our purpose and calling.

This new perspective is found in the comparison of and contrasting between a purpose that is of this world, and a purpose that is not of this world...

In our world, where everything has become political, and me having my own political views, I do get asked my thoughts on Jesus and our politics here in the United States. Who would Jesus vote for? Which party would he associate with? Would he be a Libertarian, or a Conservative, or a Socialist? So today I’m going to share some of my thoughts on this idea of Politics and Jesus.

Around the world and in religions from all over, many people are taught that if they just do enough good here on earth, they will experience paradise in the after life. They think that being good is enough to get into heaven, so to speak. But, this view is not what the Bible teaches, and it raises a whole lot of questions.

To start with, how is a good person defined? Who gets to create that definition? Do you? Do I? What if we have ...

Today’s episode might be a bit strong for some. There is a dangerous trend, especially here in American churches, with the messages some pastors are teaching, and we all need to be vigilant and aware of this. It’s not the most fun topic to discuss, and sometimes people get upset at calling things out like this, but second Peter warns of these dangers.

So what is it that I’m talking about today? What is a problem with pastors? Let’s ...

I am a fan of personal development. I’ve been involved in the world of personal development for a long time, and my own work is focused on helping men as husbands, as fathers, and as leaders. I love doing that, love seeing the changes in men as they improve as husbands, as they get better as fathers, and as they become awesome leaders. That stuff is great, but it’s not the ending and there is a challenge with normal personal develo...

In today’s world, at first glance, it seems like science and faith are opposites, that they have nothing to do with one another and that they are about as far apart as anything could be. But, is that true? Is it true that Christianity and science are opposites? Is it correct to think that they have nothing to do with one another?

In today's podcast episode, I dig into these questions and share my thoughts on the relationship bet...

We are living in a culture that is creating, and even – at times – happy about having, a fatherless society.

You’ve heard the lines: Men are optional. A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. Or that with medical advances, men won’t even be needed to create life. And on and on…

But the reality is that despite the current push of society, despite men often being told they are an accessory and not really that important anymore,...

When guys tell me why they are not getting married, they will often say, “it’s just a piece of paper.” Or they will tell me that it is just a formality. Or they will come up with something similar. 

So why get married? What's the purpose of marriage? And how do we build a strong marriage?

Those are the topics that I dig into in this Five Minute Friday episode.

A while ago there was a story in the news of a runner, a man who was entered into a marathon and he ended up crossing the line in third place. But the story quickly changed when witnesses reported seeing the man get on a bus, during the race, and ride it to near the finish line. He then got off the bus and hid behind a tree, only to start running again after two other men had passed in front him. He didn’t want to be in first place...

What are the messages that are taught in church, and which ones are avoided?

Have courage men, have courage.

Lines like that tend to create deep emotional responses in men. We love courage. We love the ideas that come into our minds when we think of courage. But, why is that? How could a few simple words end up meaning so much?

Let’s start first with trying to understand what courage is to begin with. When you think about courage, what do you think of? What images or visions come to mind?

Normally, men think o...

When we first look at Jeremiah 29:11 it seems so simple and straightforward. And, it seems so very encouraging, hopeful, and optimistic. It is one of those verses that lives on wall plaques, printed on shirts, and painted onto coffee mugs. But, is it possible this famous verse is taken out of context?

As a reminder, here is Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disa...
