Responsible Manhood: What Makes A Man

| March 18, 2015

My son came to me carrying the New Testament given to him by a popular men’s ministry. Sandwiched inside the pages were pictures and biographies of “great” Christian men. They were all rough-and-tumble men; Olympic champions and professional athletes. He was in art school. “If this is the definition of a godly man,” he said, […]

Love Letters: George Washington to his Wife

| February 16, 2015

  Like her husband, Martha’s letters also mention divine Providence.

‘Call the police, my girlfriend’s father killed my child!’: The day I lost my unborn baby to the Culture of Death

| February 16, 2015

We were born to know the truth, and something in our soul is repulsed by lies. This awakening takes work and it takes time. But it is ultimately unstoppable. It was two days before my seventeenth birthday, a Saturday morning, the day after a football game in which I’d played. So I was tired and […]

Real Men vs Christian Grey

| February 15, 2015

[Editor’s Note: The author’s conclusion that we should be grateful in apart for the film production of 50 Shades of Grey is in error. Smut doesn’t produce wisdom. If we can see this for what it is, poison it is due solely conscience. That internal guide created by God we’ve long ignored in the small […]

A Woman, A Dog, and A Walnut Tree…

Feminism, Patriarchy, and Women Who Rule Their Homes

| December 31, 2014

Power On Her Head: The Home Field Advantage By Andrea Schwartz at The Kingdom Driven Family Most of what passes for “restoring male leadership in the church” these days is in fact suppressing female initiative and decreasing areas of legitimate action and involvement by women. It’s not difficult to predict that this won’t lead to […]

We get his point, but I would like to point out further that there are many a noble and pure boy who is earnestly about the ways of godliness and should be honored for […]

Responsible Manhood: Faithful to God

| October 9, 2014

The only lesson my father learned from his father was to live for self. After James I, each preceding generation blew more money, partied a little more, moved further and further from biblical living, and became increasingly foolish. Until God pulled me out of the pit, I was well on my way to surpassing them […]

Husbands, Hold Your Wife’s Hand

| October 8, 2014

It is both awkward and encouraging the feedback I have received over the past few years for the writing I have done during my beloved’s illness, homegoing, and absence. I especially rejoice when I hear that the things I have written have served another in a time of hardship. It remains my intention to use […]
