Father’s Day can be a hard day for us fellas because statistics say that a lot of us don’t have out fathers in our lives. We’re being raised by single mothers who do the best they can to raise boys, into men. But we all know the truth is, only a man can teach you what it means to be a man. As hard as our mothers might try, they don’t replace a father. But I want to encourage you to take a hard look at the things you missed out in your life because your father wasn’t there whe
You probably saw the title and though “nah, I’m good” but trust me…it’s worth the read. The first month of 2017 has already passed us by and the older I get, the more I realize that time really waits for no man.

Even if he didn’t have it figured out entirely, he would try his best to do what he thought would work. Now, times have changed because what is acceptable has deteriorated. Culture seems t
Being a man is becoming unpopular. That might be hard to believe because it seems like there are men everywhere. But that’s not true. The male species is not declining but those who go from boys to men is drastically decreasing. Men are no longer encouraged to take responsibility for the choices they make, the children they father, and the women they claim to love. Now, there are more and more messages that tell boys to stay boys: forget about your wife, you can have a mistre
