This is a post from a couple of years ago:
Grateful that my friend Aaron Stark. Invited me to join. Started at your oldest podcast. I am on my fourth podcast. 17 December 2019 Episode 221 is my favorite episode so far. I started at episode 202. This is a long podcast but worth every minute . Enjoy and be blessed. 21 December 2019 Episode 231 go Air Force Aim High. Moments matter. 23 December 2019 Episode 235. Thanks for sharing this very needed and frank, direct, brutally honest episode. Overcoming by the power of pain. 2 January 2019: Episode 246 Fight For Your Marriage. I needed this today. I am fighting the good fight. Nothing is changing yet and I am getting tired of waiting for God’s Blessings in my marriage. I will continue to do what God wants of me. Even if I am not seeing any changes in my wife. I have many years of toxic bad years to overcome. Philippians 4:13. God has got me. 8 January 2020 Episode 259 Death Ruck 2019.

My wounds from my past are with me in the present. I will persevere Philippians 4:19

Great ministry

I’m not sure how I stumbled across this podcast or what made me decide to listen to it other than it was the will of God. I’ve been on a journey of self improvement for 2 years now and it feels like I reach a point in my journey where the main thing that was left was to grow deeper in my relationship was God; however, I didn’t realize it until God had me listen to this podcast. Jim does a great job interviewing his guests. Since listening to my first episode I have been binging episodes of this podcast, podcast of his guests, and have noticed a huge difference in my connection to Jesus. For the first time I feel like I am doing life with Jesus and part of the credit for that goes to the existence of the Men in The Arena community and their partner organizations.
