Why All Husbands Should Read Fields’ New Book

Most men don’t read books on marital advice. In fact, the only way they’ll usually pick something up is if they think it will get them more sex. That’s probably why so many men are reading Doug Fields brand new, 7 Ways to be Her Hero. The book has barely been on the shelves two [Read More...]

The Raging Bull

Once upon a time there was a man who had been raised in an alcoholic (drug addicted/dysfunctional/abusive—you fill in the blank) home. It was a fearful environment and he was afraid a lot. He hated those feelings even as a young boy because they made him feel “unmanly.” When he was twelve years old, he [Read More...]

Is Respect Earned or Given?

Perhaps I’m just a curmudgeonly old guy now, but it seems to me that people are just not as respectful as they used to be. Much of our culture believes that you do not have any obligation to respect someone unless or until they respect you first. It is a twisted vision of biblical respect. [Read More...]

Is Choosing Not to Work Healthy?

As I travel around during the day I often observe more and more young men standing on street corners or on freeway on-ramps holding cardboard signs asking for money.  The signs don’t appear to have any reason for requesting money other than they just want money.  The men don’t appear to be disabled or even [Read More...]

How You Can Stop the Cycle of Fatherlessness

A ton of research shows that children from fatherless homes fare worse in life than their fathered counterparts.  And like with most children, fatherless kids tend to imitate the examples that were modeled for them while growing up.  Hence, much like addictions, or abuse–abandonment is emulated as well and ends up creating generational cycles that [Read More...]

An Open Message to Men on the Warfare They Face

Guys, we need to stop being ashamed of being men.  Virtually every behavior that is natural to a man is now being criticized and we are made to feel ashamed about being the male gender. Perhaps if we spent more time uplifting men instead of trying to annilate masculinity, we’d have better men.  I recently [Read More...]
