195 - The Trap of Addiction with Logan Hufford show art 195 - The Trap of Addiction with Logan Hufford

Catholic Life Coach For Men

There are some addictions and traps that God lets us get out of pretty easy, but there are some that are really tough. Often we persuade ourselves that we can do it, or that it'll be enough to just get mostly clean - but we're wrong. We delay the healing through self deception. Join me in this episode as Logan Hufford shares his story of a severe sexual addiction and the years he spent struggling for freedom. So often he deceived even himself about what was going on. Even in his darkest moments, God had a plan. The struggle to fully accept God's love is hard for all of us, but certainly for...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Most of us have been blessed repeatedly in life by another person offering wisdom and perspective. Sometimes it was a formal mentorship, sometimes simply a random passing. There's something fundamental to the human experience to learn from and be in community with other humans. Our modern world is quietly suffering in extreme isolation. We've never been so lonely. But we don't have to stay alone! Join me in this episode as Terry Allen describes a new program he is launching to provide mentors to people of all ages.

193 - Escape Addiction with Nico Morales show art 193 - Escape Addiction with Nico Morales

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Addiction can leave one feeling utterly trapped, helpless, and powerless. It's so hard to escape, and even harder yet to hold onto hope. Yet we are never too far gone for God's mercy. Join me in this episode as Nico Morales shares his amazing story of addiction, escape, falling again, and escape again. God's love and grace are what save us all, but not everyone's story shows that love and grace quite so powerfully! You can read more about Nico at his website:

192 - Suffering and Marriage with Steve Thomas show art 192 - Suffering and Marriage with Steve Thomas

Catholic Life Coach For Men

"Marriage is the primordial sacrament" - a comment understood by almost none of us. We know that marriage matters, intellectually at least. But how do we actually live out our marriage? How do we capture that sacramental grace in a practical way? Join me in this episode as Catholic author Steve Thomas and I walk through what it means to be a man who is committed to living his marital sacrament in the modern day. It is not an easy, or painless, path. It's a cross, in the most painful of senses. But it is also the most important thing we men who are called to marry can do with our lives!...

191 - Music and Purpose with John Michael Talbot show art 191 - Music and Purpose with John Michael Talbot

Catholic Life Coach For Men

The early church (and much of the modern Eastern church) had this strong Contemplative component that provided a powerful basis for Christians. This component is, sadly, mostly missing from our modern western Latin Rite Catholicism. But what if what we lost is actually really important? What if we need both contemplative time and community life at times? Join me in this episode as Catholic music composer and community founder John Michael Talbot talks about his life with me. He not only shares a powerful story, he talks about how God was active in his life to bring him to a deeper and more...

190 - Differences Between Coaching and Therapy show art 190 - Differences Between Coaching and Therapy

Catholic Life Coach For Men

One of the most common questions I get is what are the actual differences between Coaching and Therapy. While there are some common challenges between them, there are also some significant differences. Coaching, much like in a gym, is much more of a push to do your best. Therapy, at it's finest, is a gentle nurturing restoration of traumatic damage. There's a time and a place for each, but there's definitely a modern trend to turn to therapy too quickly for too many things. Join me in this episode as I explore some of the major differences between therapy and coaching, both in people who work...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

We all get into a low slump at times in our lives. Some of those times are lower than others. Most men, when we get into a sticky and dark situation, really struggle to accept help. It seems like simply too much. Join me in this episode as Ryan Penley shares his story of addiction, and how one man's tenderness and gentleness finally cut through his defensive shell and inspired him to get help. Wherever you are in your struggles, or if you know someone else who is struggling, kindness, tenderness, and compassion are a secret weapon for finding help. You can read more about Ryan and his story at...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

So often, when God tells us His plan, we resist. We fight it, we avoid it, we might even ignore it. But the Hound of Heaven is not so easily avoided. Sometimes it might take more than 40 years, but He comes for us relentlessly. Join me in this episode as Bill Yoh shares his life and conversion story. We talk through some of his difficult moments and what they mean for us men now. You can find out more about Bill and his book at his website:

187 - Let Go Of The Past show art 187 - Let Go Of The Past

Catholic Life Coach For Men

We all know we're supposed to forgive. It should be simple, it should be straightforward. But the truth is it's not only complicated, but extremely difficult. Often we don't even realize when we're failing to forgive. Historians often say that those who do not study the past are doomed to repeat it. I would add that those who do not forgive past hurts are doomed to repeat them. Join me in this episode as I walk through both the metaphysics of forgiveness and some practical ways to really strive towards a deeper forgiveness of others. If we do not forgive, we hurt ourselves - badly. Our Lord's...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Most of us already feel overwhelmed, like we cannot get everything done we need to. The thought of slowing down to do something else feels impossible. When God suggests a path that isn't already on our list - it's hard. Yet often, when we surrender the first fruits of our time to God, He gives us far more in return. Join me in this episode as Brandon Davis shares how God transformed his life. At the age of 18, Brandon put everything on hold to go into mission for 2 years. Although many things went wrong, more things went very right. God has blessed his life greatly though this obedience. You...
