Catholic Life Coach For Men

You've probably heard the parable of the talents many times. We know that we're supposed to invest our talents wisely...but what does that mean? So many Catholics are afraid of wealth and success. What if the opportunities of the world distract us from God's call? But I think there is a deeper question that should be plaguing us - what if ignoring the opportunities God has given us actually is the distraction from God's call? Join me in this episode as Jonathon R Rivera and I discuss his journey from failure to success, and what he learned along the way. Most of all, we focus on how...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Even though men might not be as good at care-giving as women, we are definitely called to it! Yet many of us aren't quite sure how to do it. Some of us hesitate to help out, worrying that we might not get it right. Others help out so much they neglect to care for themselves, and reach burnout. Join me in this episode as Dr. Edward Smink helps us sort out care-giving from all the angles. As a coach for care-givers and a care-giver himself, he has a lot of practical advice for us husbands and fathers. He'll challenge us to up our game and really care for those God has entrusted to us. You can...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Jesus gave the apostles the Great Commission - and in (a slightly different way) gave it to us as well. The Christian calling is to become an Intentional Disciple - to all vocations. Yet, how well are we living that calling? A new study put out by Desales Media and Vinea Research helps to answer this question, and the answer is sobering! Join me in this episode as Dave Plisky from Desales helps walk me through the results of this new study. He discusses how active and engaged the Catholic community is - even after filtering down to those who are in deep relationship with Our Lord and the...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

In the last episode, you heard Bob talk about how Pure Desire helped him break free from pornography. In this episode, we go to the source; Nick describes his work at Pure Desire. Like so many other guys out there (including me!), he was exposed to pornography at a young age, and became hopelessly addicted... ...but didn't want to see it that way. It was just a problem that came up in some "new" way every so often, that he was for sure going to beat, that never really went away. Even when a perfect opportunity was handed to him to try something new, he knew that it would be a great...

103 - Escape from Pornography with Bob Hood show art 103 - Escape from Pornography with Bob Hood

Catholic Life Coach For Men

For over 50 years Bob was hopelessly addicted to pornography. Although he consistently tried to hide it, he was eventually caught at work and lost his job. His wife left him for 9 months when he continued to fall again and again. Bob eventually lost hope that there was anything he could ever do to escape from this addiction. He even believed that God Himself couldn't set him free. Until the day he finally decided to step out of the "boat" of his self reliance, and finally surrender to God. I invite you to join Bob and I in this episode as Bob shares his incredible story of how God stepped into...

102 - Eulogy Virtues vs Resume Virtues show art 102 - Eulogy Virtues vs Resume Virtues

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Ever notice how every guy is super eager to talk about what he does for work - but not to go that one step deeper and share how his virtues bring success in that job? The irony is that it's actually way more helpful (and important) to share why we are successful with our brothers than what it is we're good at. Underneath that success there are always virtues. Many businessmen think of virtues like perseverance, diligence, attentiveness, or energy. My claim though is that actually those aren't the real ones. Join me in this episode as I discuss how the "eulogy" virtues of humility, loyalty joy,...

101 - Maturity and Love with Barry Nicolaou show art 101 - Maturity and Love with Barry Nicolaou

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Life is complex. We hear a lot of messages that we don't really know how to interpret. So much gets tangled up in our minds - how does it all fit together? What if life could be simpler? What if love could be looked at, rather than a sweet and light feeling, but instead as a choice. Specifically, a choice that helps us grow, mature, and become a more Godly person? Join me in this episode as Barry Nicolaou shares his life story of this exact type of growth. We have some bad thoughts (sometimes through our ego), but they don't serve us. Being open to God, open to love, open to connection is the...

At the same time, I've been helping countless men to forever change their lives for the better. What's surprising is how many failings in common we all have. We all fall to the same sins.

Let me know what you think,...

My wife recently announced that she was diagnosed with adult ADHD. Maybe you don't know much about that - I sure didn't before this adventure started. I'm sad to say I didn't handle it well at first. Sometimes I still don't! Join me in this episode as I talk about the 4 stages I went through in dealing with my wife's behavior and our marriage in light of her diagnosis. I didn't start out great, but what I learned applies to every time we don't like something about our spouse. This episode is raw, and a little bit embarrassing. Let me know what you think!

Covid brought up a lot of problems - but many of those we discovered had nothing to do with the virus.

When you fly a fighter jet, the decision has to be made right now. Join me in this episode and learn more about what Dom "Slice" Teich is doing - and how the wisdom of fighter pilots can help change your life too. He's...

Masculinity is under attack right now. We rarely even use that word without the word "toxic." Our boys are left struggling trying to decide what it means to be a man, and if they qualify.

Rarely do our young men make good choices when struggling to understand what it means to be man. Instead of virtue, they pursue women, risk, or pleasure.

But what if you, as the father, can do something about that?

Join me in this episode to discover how society solved this problem in the past. Steven Arms is the author of the book Milestone to Manhood. He describes the idea of a Rite of Passage - a way to help our boys transition into becoming men. We owe it to our children to help them through what might be the most difficult transition of their lives.

You can find the book Milestone to Manhood on Amazon
