Catholic Life Coach For Men

We love the stories of the heroes, the underdogs, and the winners. We revel in the touchdown throw that wins the superbowl. We sometimes even cry as the hero in the movie sacrifices everything. Yet we so often fail to live our potential in our own lives. What if "taking radical responsibility," "extreme ownership," and "radical accountability" are actually very Catholic ideas, consistent with the teachings of the church? Join me in this episode as I explore the idea that not only is taking responsibility (when done properly) a source of humility, it is even the source of our greatest...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

So many men are slowly dying inside as they choose comfort or convenience over the greater calling that God has placed within their lives. Mostly because that battle is scary! It will cost you greatly. The cost to inaction, however, is actually greater. Join me in this episode as I talk about how it takes a balance of both humility and magnanimity to counter pride. It takes a willingness to embrace discomfort as part of the pursuit of adventure that God has planned for your life. You were made for greatness. You were made for battle. You were not made to simply exist. Choose life!

Catholic Life Coach For Men

It's not common for an event to take over your life. In that list is frozen main water supply during winter. That's the story that starts this podcast episode. It's funny how God takes away anything we choose over Him. While often extremely painful, it is effective at pointing out our entitlements. Join me in this episode as I share how a really horrible week allowed me to improve my gratitude and humility. God's plans are sometimes painful, but to trust in Him is always the invitation. Plus this is a pretty funny story.

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Most men would acknowledge they should keep their word - but so many of us really don't make it a priority. If our wife gets upset, or if the kids are worked up, or maybe even if I just don't feel great; I'm all too ready to bail on a commitment. What if our failure to honor our word is actually a far bigger deal than we want to admit? Join me in this episode as I discuss why your word is so critical to your identity and strength as a man. I also discuss some practical ways to improve your strength in this critical characteristic!

Competent? Dangerous, even? Join me in this episode as former Navy Seal and police officer Jason Perry shares his journey into the faith and authentic masculinity. Men are supposed to be powerful and dangerous. Yet so few of us live into that potential. You can read more about Jason on his website:

In this episode we continue looking at how God's plan for us humans actually does NOT include our right to righteous anger - or any anger at all for that matter! Sound crazy? So did Jesus!

Living a life free from anger feels about as impossible as living a life free from lust. Yet, not only does God invite us to this holiness, He has given us the power, through His grace, to be able to do exactly that.

I encourage you to listen to this episode. If you, like me, suffer from anger, perhaps it's time to start to change!
