5 MOVIES THAT CELEBRATE FATHERHOOD

Some movies are entertaining, some are educational, and then there are those that make you feel something. A mentor once told me, “Pay attention to what moves you.

Falling Into Trust

When I used to teach high school freshman Bible, one of my favorite activities happened during the section on trust in God. Instead of just discussing it, the boys would go and experience it.

Living the Mandate

by John Bryson

God has “hard-wired” men to create and cultivate.

Rely on Jesus

Men don’t like to ask for help. We don’t like to ask for directions, money, advice, and lots of other things. No, we prefer to be self-sufficient, powerful, and in control.
