  • 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[...]
  • Are you feeling burned out? Try self-care.

  • I just made it through a season where at moments I felt like I was on the verge of burnout. It just felt like a period of time when really big stuff...stuff bigger than usual was being juggled, and I was doing my best not to drop everything.

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[...]
  • 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. [...]
