    Ben Killoy | Looking for Home in the Right Place

    Coming home to a place where you feel safe and secure is something every father longs for. But all too often men are looking for home in the wrong places. When we flip that around and understand what home truly is, and where we need to be looking for home, we can find it in the right places instead.
    Our guest today went from being bullied as a child, being a chameleon to fit in, and losing himself to becoming a man who has impacted families in a powerful way through his work and he’s here to share great insights with us.
    Ben Killoy Is a Marine Veteran, speaker, and coach with a focus on helping dads rebuild confidence in who they are. He launched his first podcast Military Veteran Dad in 2019 and his second podcast The Business of Fatherhood in 2021. Ben now helps other dads rebuild their inner confidence and get them excited to walk through the door of their homes.
      
    Questions Answered:
    How do you define home?How do you help someone work through discovering out who they truly are?What does it mean to build our home on a solid foundation?If I don’t feel I am worthy of love, how do I work through that?Is it possible to unconditionally love other people if I don’t unconditionally love myself first?Where do men mistakenly look for home?What’s the difference between prior generations of men and our generation?What happens to a man when he has had adversity removed?As fathers, are we raising kids or are we raising future adults?What is a way that fathers can create adventure for their own children?How did the idea of home come from the work you do with Military Veteran Dad?Where does the feeling of home truly come from?

    Mitch London | God's Government

    Mitch London | God's Government

    Politics today plays a major part in nearly every aspect of our world. As Christian men, we’re called to navigate this world with wisdom and with our eyes on the Kingdom of God. But does that mean that we’re to ignore world politics, or be involved in politics? What does God have to say about government? How are we to live under the authority of a worldly ruler, even if that ruler is evil? Our guest today has amazing insights into these questions, and lots more in this important discussion
    Mitch London’s journey is a roller coaster ride familiar to many. A smooth start, twists and turns, big drops, places where it feels out of control, times when the speed really picks up, and times when it seems like everything has almost stopped. But like most great rides, he would do it all over again.
    In Jan of 2019 Mitch received a vision from God to start a Men's Ministry called Just Add Wilderness. God was showing Mitch how men today have lost their Identity in Christ, which has resulted in stagnation, depression, and frustration. Mitch has been guiding men to a deeper understanding of their identity of Christ Jesus and watching them break free from the bondages of life. Helping Men became a mandate, not a market.
    As a pastor, Mitch really understood the vital need for relationships and connections within the body of Christ. The life on life and heart to heart discipleship that's needed was his passion.
    Today Mitch is the founder of Spirit Led Coaching where he helps Ministry and Business Leaders partner with the Holy Spirit and learn how to steward the gifts that God has already placed within them.
     
    Questions Answered:
    What does “God’s Government” mean?How does ‘they kingdom come” practically relate to the idea of God’s Government?What are some of the mandates Jesus gave to us?How are Christians to follow the mandate to take ground for the King?Should a Christian man be concerned with Earthly politics?What are the next steps for a man leading his family through these times?Can you explain what authority a man has been given?Is there a conflict between using my authority and choosing to give my burden to Jesus?How are people to act when subjected to an evil ruler?What does it mean to give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s?Where should a man start on the challenge of politics and God’s government?

    John Stange | Life From God's Perspective

    One of the most important skills you can teach yourself, and practice, is to see life from God’s perspective.

    Questions Answered:
    What does it mean to talk to yourself like God talks to you?What happens to my heart when I talk negatively to myself?How do I change when I focus on the positive instead?If someone says they don’t hear God, what do you recommend?On a practical level, what does it look like to live a life based on truth?How does a dad influence his children about the idea of what we’re feeding into our minds?What does it mean that conditional love isn’t love at all?How can a man work through forgiving himself?What’s a fun story from your past that came up while writing this book?If there was only one point to take from your book, what is that message?

    Howie Close | From Prison to Preaching From the Pulpit

    Howie Close | From Prison to Preaching From the Pulpit

    Prison can be a hard place, filled with people who have committed some of the worst crimes. As we’ll learn today, prison can also be a place of redemption, where people find God. It’s not an easy conversation to have, and our guest today knows that better than any. He went from being in prison and thinking that he would be there until he died to a free man who now preaches from the pulpit.
    Howie Close has spent the last eleven years as a pastor at Woodmen Valley Chapel, overseeing the church’s statewide prison ministry. For over twenty years prior to that, he was incarcerated in the same prisons where he now carries the keys. And now he has the privilege of ministering there with his teams. He lives in Colorado with his wife and their daughter.
    Please note – there are a few moments of background noise and poor connection in this recording.

    What’s your story of growing up to finding yourself in prison?How did you find a Bible and learn about God while in an isolation cell?What was it like being so young and being in the toughest and scariest prison in the state?When did you decide to take your fighting spirit and bend it towards the kingdom of God?How did you get out of prison and transition to teaching from the pulpit?How does it feel to freely walk in and out of a building you thought you would be in until you died?What is it like having best friends who have committed some of the worst crimes, but who now follow Jesus?When talking about redemption of someone who has committed such crimes, what about the victims and the families of victims?Can you share another story of a man whose life has been changed through prison ministry?How can we adjust our stereotypes of prisoners?Does the writing of Paul take on a different meaning to men who are in prison?What does it mean for us to live in submission to the truth?

A great resource for stronger Christian men

Warren had put together a great collection of conversations to help men in becoming the strong, Christian leaders they were created to be. This world is broken and there are many mixed messages about what it means to be a follower of Christ, and what it means to be a man. Appreciate the perspectives here and the additional resources so that I can learn how to lead my family better.

Bright Light of the Week

This show gives hope and understanding in a rather challenging world. Really helps to recharge me to focus on my purpose as a man.

Creating Better Men and Family Leaders

I really enjoyed the Christian content. Great analogy about resilience and getting through tough circumstances. Was listening to the podcast while I was driving home from work. It felt like I was listening to a friend sitting right next to me in my truck. Looking forward to future podcasts.
