  • Redefining Masculinity Around Relationships

  • Last month I wrote a blog and shot a video called Two Words You Should Never Tell a Boy. The two words I was referring to are "stop crying." It's a message that is devastating to boys and leads to lots of other problems for them in the future. Problems that I see everyday in my counseling office with the men that I work with. I agree with Terence Real in that we need more relational heroes in [...]
  • Men: Are You a Relational Hero?

  • "Each man is a bridge, spanning in his lifetime all of the images and traditions about masculinity inherited from past generations and bestowing--or inflicting--his own retelling of the tale on those who ensue. Unresolved depression often passes from father to son, despite the father's best intentions, like a toxic, unacknowledged patrimony. Conversely, when a man transforms the internalized disco[...]
  • Two Words You Should Never Tell a Boy.....

  • "If you cry again I am going to take you back home!" That is what I told my almost 4 year old son on Wednesday night around 8:00pm. We were riding bikes and he was in that overtired state where he could hardly contain his emotions. He was crying. He was whining at his sister. It had been a long day at work for me. I wasn't handling my emotions very well either. And actually, as the[...]
  • Be the 'Life-Giving' Man That You and Others Deserve

  • Are you a 'life-giving' man? That is a question that I am often asked. It's a term that I began to talk about in my last book, What it Means to be a Man. But I've begun to explore it more fully in the last 6 months and it is the focus of my online program for men. I've learned a lot, and the 6 men who just finished my course taught me a lot. If you are interested in becoming a 'life-givi[...]
  • No Weak Men Allowed.....

  • No Weak Men Allowed....I think that is the message that men hear from the time they are little boys all the way through the rest of their lives. I know I have heard that message. I know the men I work with have heard that message. It may come from parents, grandparents, coaches, teachers, friend's parents, pastors...culture. The message is sometimes delivered intentionally in order to wou[...]
  • The Imminent Threat to a Pastor's Marriage

  • About 8 years ago I was sitting in a marriage and family therapy class at Fuller Theological Seminary when the professor made an off the cuff remark about the marital satisfaction of a pastor and their spouse. The professor's experience was that pastors (in this case men) often rank their marriages as being more satisfactory than their spouse does. I have thought about that comment a lot ove[...]

I have been working with men for a very long time in all kinds of settings -- ministry, community mental health agencies, private practice.

  • Are You a Man Who Gives Life to Those Around You? Or One Who Destroys It?

  • "Everyone one of you when you walk into a room can probably tell the difference between a man who is life-giving. That is, he essentially breathes life into other people. He is encouraging, passionate, listening. You know what that looks and feels like, right?" The men in the audience nodded their heads in agreement. So I continued. "When you encounter that guy you walk away a different person. [...]
