    The Sage Going Away Party

    The Sage Going Away Party

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy as Jimmy welcomes Neil Pinkham aka The Sage to the Protector Culture podcast.  
     
    The impact Neil has on the Able Shepherd program, Able-Nation.org, as well as the Stand in the Gap Initiative is immeasurable!  When you combine a lifetime of experience with a strong Christian faith and foundation along with a humble and engaging personality that is second to none .. everyone is rewarded personally and professionally by the presence of The Sage.
     
    As Neil prepares to relocate from Colorado to Louisiana in the next phase of his life to be closer to his sons and grandchildren, he takes time to reflect and share stories with Jimmy on the development of the Able Shepherd program and the countless memories made along the way.
     
    To say Neil has had an impact on every individual he has worked or trained with, to include Jimmy and the Able Shepherd program is a massive understatement. Quite literally we would not be where we are today without the knowledge, experience, guidance and wisdom which Neil has imparted on us all.
     
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and best wishes to Neil as he transitions into the next phase.  
     
    While Neil will continue to be a guiding force, his daily presence, warmth, and generosity will certainly be missed.

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 76: Hamilton

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 76: Hamilton

    Join us as a US Navy SEAL recounts his recent experience of watching a Musical with his family.  Not entirely sure what to expect, Jimmy is blown away by the ability of the cast and crew to develop, deliver, and portray the life story of one of America’s Founding Fathers starting when he arrived in America as a 14 year old orphan.
     
    Filmed on a Broadway stage in what is essentially a 2 hour long rap song, providing a delightful adventure to which many a family conversation has been sparked.
     
    What honor used to be In depth discussions to help the children understand the significance of the event(s) portrayed While the movie is a fun history lesson, it is a reminder to the significance of who teaches your children History as it will alter their world view and perspective  
    Wrapping it all up is a statement from the Declaration of Independence, “a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." 
     
    Their Lives, their Fortunes, and their Honor is what was pledged as the foundation of our great country.  Challenge yourself and your families to carry on and protect the sacrifices which were made and must continue to be made so we can all prosper in their endeavors.

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 75: Fix It or I Will

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 75: Fix It or I Will

    Jimmy is joined by Bk to share a recent experience with a local Colorado school.  In a nutshell, the students can see that things are broken and they need to be fixed.  From the mouths of children “fix it or I will.”  Please,  follow along as Jimmy revists the request by the Physical Education teacher (to the Students) “what are some ideas of what you would like to do in class?”
     
    With the idea that school districts are doing very little to nothing in an effort to protect students on campus, or in the classroom, the students take it upon themselves to make a request to learn some basic skills related to self defense and personal protection.  
     
    Thankfully, the teachers and staff were willing to listen to the students and invited two of the Able Shepherd Lead Instructors into their P.E. classroom to introduce some self defense basic skills.  At the end of the week, the students walk taller and with more confidence knowing they have some knowledge and experience to build upon.

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 74: Back to Good

    The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham Episode 74: Back to Good

    After Jimmy and Jason Campbell attend a screening for the movie “Whose Children are They?” several questions are raised including the concept of public education becoming a big business and financial windfall for Unions.
     
    One recurring theme is a quote from C.S. Lewis “In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”
     
    Topics highlighted and addressed during the conversation include:
     
    Kids are easy targets - XXX cartoons for Sex Ed Administrators figured out this is big business, and are reaping significant financial rewards at the cost of the students and the teachers Toxic masculinity versus Righteous Masculinity Stop asking permission and start living your life Get involved with the Policies that govern our lives  
    When we talk about the concept of Getting Back to Good .. how do we define what is good .. and the simple answer is to refer to the Bible and understand the history which has been laid down before us.
     
    In the end, there is a call to action:
    What are you going to do about it?   When are you going to do it? Creation of Community Impact Teams Be a part of the creation of the future of schools Christ centered, classical education teaching love over hate, light over dark, and strength over weakness  
    This is accomplished with Selfless problem solvers, are you one of them?

I want to be an Able Shepherd

I just took the POP class. I’m listened to nearly all the podcasts. I’m so exited to learn the skill to take care of my family and friends. I’m also excite to learn more of the community. Thanks Jimmy and team for creating this.

Great info here from a guy who has been there, done that and wants to share what he has learned so we can all be better at what we are called to do which is Protect one another!
