Practical masculinity

The Heart of Masculinity

I have been blessed tremendously by Michael and Bnonn’s work here. There is so much sage counsel here for men, the value is hard to say. If you haven’t been fathered well or even if you have: give this a listen!

Necessary

I am a 59 year old man who has long been practicing the tenets that are heralded in this podcast. I stumbled it across it while browsing titles on the Canon+ app. Even though I have been successful in living as a traditional male with a traditional wife and children, I have had difficulty in communicating exactly what that means to other men, even my own son and sons-in-law, and providing an example is just not enough. I am thankful that God has given us articulate men like Bnonn and Michael who can help give people like me words to use in mentoring young (and old) men who have been brought up in a matriarchal society and without strong male models. This is an excellent resource to direct right, masculine living, breaking old habits, and forming new productive habits. God bless you both.
