ALSO : there's too many boys in this world & not enough men. in a world with terrible examples of what it means to be a man (whether you're dealing with a boy whose hobby is swiping right and on to the next one, noncommittal tools, fatherless homes, abandonment, physical/emotional abuse--the list goes on) it's my passion to encourage a generation to RISE UP MAN UP AND STAND FIRM to fighting the good fight of faith -- when it seems like the world is turning authentic manhood away. it's about time we take a stand to be who we're called to be, whether you're a husband, son, friend, uncle, dad, employee, employer, business owner, sports fan, dancer, artist, rapper, 90's pop fan, academic, a thinker, a creative, logical, emotional, wherever you are and whoever you are--it's about time we be strong for our homes, our families, our culture, our world--not in that societal norm gutting it out without sharing what's ACTUALLY AUTHENTICALLY going on but selflessly loving our families, friends, neighbors with a strength like no other--looking to Jesus as the complete perfect example of how to do so--because I know one thing--that is the ONLY way to solve any problem...the RIGHT way.
