  • Manhood Madness

    BY Authentic Manhood 12 Mar 2015

    The month of March- it’s unpredictable at best. Hunter S. Thompson said it this way “March is a month without mercy for rabid basketball fans. There is no such thing as a ‘gentleman gambler’ when the Big Dance rolls around.

    BY Matt Patrick 08 Dec 2014

    I turn 30 this week. It’s interesting. I’ve had people say things like, “You are a grown up now.” This is a strange statement. Has 30 really become the age of maturity?

    In his book, To Change the World, James Davison Hunter says, “the passion to engage the world, to shape it and finally change it for the better, would seem to be an enduring mark of Christians on the world in which they live. Throughout Scripture, we read of great men who, often through the unlikeliest of circumstances, achieved incredible feats and influenced the world in ways that can still be seen today. Read More

  • Male Friendship - Part Two

    BY Matt Patrick 18 Jul 2014

    True friendship is something all men need, but not many have—so what should we to do? There is no silver bullet that will fix this problem for all men everywhere, but there are some things that can definitely help. In my last blog I talked about how proximity and availability play a huge role in why guys do not have close friends.
