Raising Mature, Internally Motivated, Christ-Following Children Part 02

When parents begin a heart-based approach to parenting, it's crucial that the focus on one area for one child. One of the first things you'll need to do is to pick one area to focus on and then have a meeting with your child. It doesn't matter if they are 4 or 14 this first meeting (the first of many) is VERY important. In this episode we talk about the dos and don'ts of the first meeting and we walk through how to conduct it so that things go as planned. Get the show notes at...


Raising Mature, Internally Motivated, Christ-Following Children Part 01

One of the things dads often struggle with is confidence that the work they're doing to raise their children is actually effective and correct. Often a behavior modification approach to parenting is used, but this approach has limited effect and doesn't create lasting change. Heart-based solutions are the best and most lasting. A heart based approach to parenting creates an internal drive in the child to do what's right instead of relying on the external constraints of parents. In this...


Being a Christian Dad in the Midst of Significant Change

Have you ever been unemployed? Statistically speaking you are more likely to be unemployed at some point than having cancer. Each year over 20 million people go unemployed in the United States. Often time it’s a silent journey, especially for men. As men we have a certain pride in the work that we do and then we lose a job, we often experience feelings of inadequacy, failure and worthlessness. Thus, we tend not to talk about the experience and don’t get the support needed to make it through...


Religious Liberty and Your Rights as a Christian

Jeremy and I have been friends for several years. He’s a guy that’s definitely out in the trenches doing the work that others only talk or dream about doing. On a daily basis he’s fighting the legal battles that threaten our religious freedoms in our country. He’s even helped me in a significant way and we get into that during our discussion. The truth is, many are misinformed about what religious freedoms we still have in our country. What our kids are permitted to share in school and...


How to Be the Spiritual Leader of Your Home

One of the topics that comes up again and again in our Dad Hackers Facebook group as well as our Iron Men meetings is how to be the spiritual leader of our homes. Many of us didn’t grow up in Christian homes and a significant amount of the men in our community didn’t have a present, engaged father as an example. That puts us in a very difficult and challenging position of having the desire to lead our families spiritually, but not having the background and example of how to do it. True,...

Being a Better Dad by Being a Better Son

Show notes and resources at Gentlemen, a lot of us are driven to succeed, achieve, produce, and create. But what’s the drive behind those ambitions? Is it to gain acceptance, or approval? If so, by whom? Other men? A parent or a spouse? God? Are we driven by a desire to prove ourselves or to be validated? Again, the question is, if so, who’s validation are we seeking? In this week’s episode we’re joined by Allen Arnold who takes us on a journey through his...


Be a Man Who is Prepared

Shownotes and resources are at There are three things every man should be armed with. A man should be prepared. There’s always an ambush coming and it is essential as leaders in our homes that we accept the responsibility of being prepared for them. A man should be ready to defend. There’s always a threat on the horizon, especially if you’re trying to lead your family toward deeper intimacy with Christ. Threats aren’t always physical, so we need to be ready to...


How to Be a Man on Mission

Episode #064 How to Be a Man on Mission with Chris Cirullo. Show notes and resources at One of the things I know that's important for us as leaders in our home is to have a crystal clear vision for the direction God wants our families to go. Many men sit passively by as the days, weeks, months, and years go by. Never really initiating a clear vision and mission for their family. Often the days are on auto-pilot and we end up living by default rather than by...


Living a Life of Transparency

Episode #63 Living a life of Transparency with Ryan Frederick. Get the show notes at Gentlemen, many of us live lives with secrets and darkness within. We profess to live in the light of Christ, but deep down there are dark corners of our lives that we’re afraid to expose. The truth is that we desperately want to expose these dark corners and areas of our lives, but we’re afraid to confess and face the potential consequences. Many of us have been enslaved by a...

A Story of God's Blessing

Every once in awhile you get to meet someone who has an amazing story of how they came to know Jesus Christ and become a Christian. These stories are inspiring, uplifting, and encouraging because they show the mighty hand of God at work in the lives of His children. Gaurav Sharma, or just “G” as his friends call him is one of these people. G was born in India and raised a Buddhist. However, discontent with his nation and his religion, he decided to pursue a better life in America. Listen...


How to Make the Transition from Career to Calling

I know a lot of guys who are doing some work or ministry on the side, in addition to their full time job. However, if they were being honest, many of them would rather their side project be their full time job. The problem is that many don’t know what to do to make that transition. Today we’re joined by Mike Yarbrough. Mike has made that transition from career to calling and he shares with us his story of going from a full-time software engineer to owning his own business that supports he...


How To Be A Faithful Father

One of the main calls on a man’s life is to faithfulness. When a man becomes a father, that calling gets even more focused because now he’s called to be a faithful to his children. But how do we do that? How do we actually live out that faithfulness on a daily basis and fulfill our God-given duties and responsibilities as fathers? What’s the yardstick with which we can measure ourselves to know if we’re on the right track. Today we have Rick Wertz, founder and president of Faithful...


How To Think Big But Act Small

One of the things I struggle with personally and I know a lot of men struggle with as well is taking the little steps that lead to the big results in life. It’s so easy to dream big and think about what could possibly occur several years down the road. The problem is that the days go by quickly and add up fast. You look back and 5, 10, 20 or even more years have passed you by and you realize that you’re not going in the direction you hoped and you’re not where you thought you’d be at this...
