10 Things I Learned in 2014

Our prayers are offered to God in ‘real time’ to us. But timeless God heard our prayers and considered them before the beginning of the world . . . before He wrote the script of what’s happening right now. So our prayers are valuable and useful, no matter when they’re uttered. Stephen Hawking’s quantum physics...

The Glitch that Stole New Years

On Monday, we attempted to send our normal post but something happened. Maybe the after-Christmas food coma struck the internet . . . or one of our team members . . . or MailChimp. Who knows and whatever. But we didn’t want you to miss out on this post nor the offer we made to...

Getting More Specific

When I first started writing and sending these posts 3 years ago, the goal was to continue to ‘mentor’ the men who’d sat around my dining room table. Plus, we wanted to draw more laymen and ministers into the ‘mentor’ fold. We’ve offered up almost 350 posts, over 1200 men have registered as mentors, and...

Hope is Not a Strategy

A lot of us dance on the edge of optimism and carelessness. “I’ll figure something out” has come out of my mouth more times than I want to admit. Sometimes it’s the only workable plan. But it’s also a way to ‘kick the can’ down the road and deal with stuff later. “Hope is not...

A Problem Without a Solution is a Fact

Like most of my best stuff, I got this from my friend John. But like most of his best stuff, he got it from another really smart guy, in this case, former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres. Here’s the quote. . . “If a problem has no solution, it may not be a problem, but...

You Do What You Are

“You are what you do, right?” We label people. Professionals, businessmen, educators . . . we take an identity from our profession. “I’m an investor,” “I’m a doctor,” “Lawyer,” “Salesman,” “Preacher,” “Entrepreneur,” “Mr. Mom”... Most of the time we stop right there, calling on stereotypes to inform people of who they’re talking to. My brother...

Teenager Tension

Whenever I talk to dads of teenagers, they talk about the tension in their families. Between the kids and their mom. Between being in the ‘in-crowd’ and being an outcast. Between the fun thing and the wise thing. God keeps bringing the word “identity” to mind. It’s so about identity. Young people desperately want an...

The Scriptwriter and the Timelessness of Prayer

Okay, I’m going to be really, really honest with you. What I’m going to say, I’d like to keep this between us, okay? I’m trusting you here . . . I’ve had my doubts about prayer. When I first hit my health issues, I thought, “I don’t know whether to ask people to pray for...

Waiting for God

“I’m just waiting for God to give me direction” “God says ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘wait’. Right now I’m waiting.” “I don’t want to get ahead of God.” We’ve all said these things. They’re part of our “Christian-ese”, our ‘church-speak’. But are they true? Biblical? Helpful? Or error . . . even folklore? “Waiting for God...

Thanksgiving…For My Marriage

(Following are excerpts from a letter we received about What Radical Husbands Do.)   “My husband and I were in the roughest patch of marriage we had ever experienced.  We were coming up on our 15th year and I honestly thought that it would be our last. I had been exhausted from the previous years...
