156 - Why with Cory Rosenke show art 156 - Why with Cory Rosenke

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Deep down, we all (even non-Christians) know that there has to be some part of us beyond our brains and bodies. Those deepest parts have yearnings that call us to search for something that is not material. Those yearnings call us to search for God. Though, we do get confused sometimes. Join me in this episode as Cory Rosenke shares how his yearnings (and and irrepressible urge to ask "Why?") lead him to his faith and to God. We talk about how the deepest issues of identity, purpose, mission, and meaning lead us to God in a powerful way. Without their proper alignment, we are easily lost. ...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

We live in an age that emphasizes systems, order, processes, logic, and efficiency as a primary purpose of our work. In many ways, these indeed have brought tremendous comfort, safety, and convenience to our lives. But what if we've lost something also? What if this overemphasis on systems has cost us the meaning, purpose, and connection that makes human life ultimately worth living? Join me in this episode as I'm joined by a rather unusual guest. Many of you know that I'm an engineering type of mindset - Mr. Michaell Magrutsche is on almost the opposite end of the temperament. He shares his...

154 - Love Your Neighbor As Yourself show art 154 - Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

Catholic Life Coach For Men

The Second Greatest Commandment is to "Love Your Neighbor As Yourself." Sounds simple enough, right? Maybe not. First, what does it mean to love "yourself?" Most of us, if we spoke the truth, actually think very poorly of ourselves. We treat ourselves horribly, stealing from our own futures. We are unkind and speak to ourselves with anger. Then we proceed to "love" our neighbor in the same way. Join me in this episode as I talk about what we can do to better understand how to live this commandment out. It is not easy. Love is not some fairy-tale concept, but a series of actions, choices, and...

153 - Phase 2 - Seriously? show art 153 - Phase 2 - Seriously?

Catholic Life Coach For Men

There's a lot of reasons when It is sometimes off the table. But almost all of them make it harder to be a good husband. What's worse, for a couple practicing NFP in order to avoid conception, the time when It is off the table is also the time when both parties want It the most! This is not easy. Join me in this episode as I talk about some practical ways to look at Phase 2 of NFP, as well as some rules for how to navigate Phase 2. This is not a universally agreed upon topic, and I attempt to treat this with gentleness and respect. This is certainly not something that anyone ever figures out...

152 - Applied Love Language with Paul Zolman show art 152 - Applied Love Language with Paul Zolman

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Perhaps you've heard about Gary Chapman's idea that we communicate love as a particular "language." Perhaps you've even done a little bit of work and learned you and your wife's Love Language. But how do you really use the love languages to help your wife feel loved? Join me in this episode as I bring in a Love Language expert (not to be confused with the Love Experts from the Frozen movie series.) Mr Paul Zolman shares his practical ways to really lean into the love language concept - both to become better at using them yourself, as well as to really help your significant others out. You can...

151 - Gospel of Work with Dan Donaldson show art 151 - Gospel of Work with Dan Donaldson

Catholic Life Coach For Men

When God kicked Adam out of the garden, He assigned Adam to work. This work wasn't meant to be merely a "punishment" but rather a path to redemption. Work is a chance for a man to strive, grow, and become the deeper man that God intended him to be! So many of us look at our jobs as simply a way to pay the bills. We tend to either rush to get the bare minimum done or instead become obsessed with work to the detriment of our families. This was never God's plan. You have an opportunity to join a free conference to learn what to do instead! Join me in this episode as my returning guest Dan...

Catholic Life Coach For Men

It's hard to stay in shape. This is obviously true because we all see the statistics of how out of shape our country is. I know that I struggle to limit how much I eat - God is just so good and has provided so much wonderful food! But what if it was easier to get and stay in shape? Join me in this episode as my guest Roman Fischer explains how he got strong and fit, as well as how he helps his guest. As with so much else, the first step is always in our mind. Our thoughts and mindset are critical; nothing works without them! You can find out more about Roman at

149 - Masculinity, Women, and Workplaces show art 149 - Masculinity, Women, and Workplaces

Catholic Life Coach For Men

There's a tension between gender differences when it comes to the workplace. It's impossible to successfully deny that the differences are real (though many do try), but we're supposed to act is if everyone is the same. How do we do that? Join me in this episode as I explore this issue (translation: ramble and postulate.) This is not an easy issue, but may not be as difficult as some think. We are all different in many many ways. The difference of gender, while profound and significant, is only but one of many ways. The Christian calling is to honor and respect others, even (perhaps...

148 - Authentic Male Leadership (Nontoxic) show art 148 - Authentic Male Leadership (Nontoxic)

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Although we regularly listen to the Bible verses calling men to leadership, most of us men don't really know what that means. Furthermore, our culture is shoving the idea of "toxic masculinity" down our throat every chance it gets. Maybe the society (and the ruler behind it) is right to be afraid of masculine leadership. Maybe, when God gave men the job of leading, He also equipped us differently from women? Join me in this episode as I explore not only why "toxic masculinity" is so powerfully pushed, but also what men are called to do in response. The truth is that God did specifically...

147 - The Meaning Behind Her Accusations show art 147 - The Meaning Behind Her Accusations

Catholic Life Coach For Men

If you're at all like me, it's easy to get mad when your wife accuses you (unjustly!) of something. It's easy to quickly see why it isn't true, fair, or even appropriate for her to have said that horrible thing! It's even easier to respond by pointing out just how horrible of a thing it was to say! But this isn't the Christian way. Husbands, you are called to love your wives. unconditionally. This means you have to love her even when she is being unfair or unjust. (Hint: you are also commonly unfair and unjust!) But how do we do that? Join me in this episode as I talk about one major way...
