A+++

Tom does an awesome job of keeping things real, while adding some humor! Can’t wait for future podcasts. Recently listened to Charlie Sanders and that was fantastic. Thank you Tom, more men need to hear this!!

Great episodes 😎

I started about a month ago at the very beginning and have caught up to the most recent episode. My two favorite episodes were from the president of the Sioux Falls seminary and the guy that wanted to drive a dump truck for a living. All the episodes are good in there own way and appreciate what you do in your ministry. I heard about you guys from a men’s retreat at Sioux Falls First and thought I would check out your podcast. I gave you four stars because I didn’t want it to go to your head. Ha ha.I look forward to new episodes and thanks for doing these. Peace. -WJAMES

Refreshing! This is a podcast for men who want more in life!

I have been on the search for positive podcasts that speak life into me, so that I can speak it into others! I don’t know how Tom gets such amazing speakers but I just can’t get enough. He house found men who come from all different walks of life who have found love through Jesus, and are willing to speak about it. I recommend this to any man who is looking to be a better father, husband, or friend through the eyes of Jesus!
