Addiction is rampant in our society, but we rarely want to get help.
Why is that?
First, it requires admitting that we have a problem – ouch!
Second, we’re not sure that anyone can really help anyways!
Let me tell you about something new:
Catholic In Recovery is not only a winner of the OSV Entrepreneurial award, but has an awesome purpose. Combining the time-tested power of 12-step programs ability to conquer addictions with the teachings of the Catholic Faith, this company is really cool.
Join me in this episode as I discuss what Catholic In Recovery can offer with it’s founder Scott Weeman. Whether you have an addiction you’d love to overcome or know someone who does, this episode is powerful!
Guys, this is really important. We all beat ourselves up way too hard and fail to notice just how much good we have done.
This is toxic.
We are Catholic. We can have Both-And. We can both see our shortcomings, and recognize we have made great progress.
Join me in this episode to discuss how the powerful tool of Gap and Gain can make big changes in your mindset in almost any area of your life.
It’s gonna be worth it!
Does it sometimes seem like you can never do enough to be “good enough” or “lovable?”
Do your slowly building pile of failures mean that you are actually a failure?
Are you actually a “bad guy” who has managed to fool everyone else, and you’re scared they might realize it?
Join me in this episode as I discuss 4 of the most common male identity wounds. These are wounds so deeply baked into our sense of self that they become part of who we are.
While healing these is not (usually) simple or easy, there are ways to start.
Most Catholic guys know about Exodus 90. A lot of us have done it, and even more are a bit intimidated by it. And…let’s be honest…there’s a good reason to be intimidated. It’s hard!
But so is everything else worth doing, ever.
So is your journey to sainthood.
If you want to finally find the freedom from your addictions and consuming worldly pastimes, you need to listen.
In this episode I’m joined by the Director of Content for the Exodus 90 program, Mr. Nathaniel Binversie. He shares not only some awesome Exodus 90 stories, but also gives us a sneak peak on some new stuff coming up! (And no, it’s not even MORE suffering)
Some guys blow the top explosively
Some guys simmer quietly and hold resentment and bitterness.
Whatever your flavor, most of us guys struggle with anger. We know that we should be less angry, but it seems like life just overwhelms that desire. How do we actually make real progress?
Join me in this episode as I give several practical tips to make some real headway on anger.
Maybe you don’t need to work on your self discipline.
Maybe you’ve got everything worked out and like what you show up with.
Or maybe not…
If you’re like most of us guys, there are probably some areas to keep working on.
Join me in this episode to continue the discussion from Episode 7 about Self Discipline, and how to gain the freedom to be the guy you want to be!
School, Fall, Yay! Right?
Well, but there is that COVID thing still…
And marriages are really struggling. Like…for a lot of us!
This episode is a bit more timely. I’ve put together some of the common issues that seem to be affecting a lot of guys right now. Join me and see if you’re struggling with something similar!
Jason Shanks is the president of the Our Sunday Visitor institute and an awesome guy.
In this episode he shares with us his story of perseverance. He contracted COVID-19 and had terrible complications to the point the doctors thought he was going to die, leaving his wife and 5 young children.
Despite overwhelming odds, this is the story of how his fight, working together with God’s grace through the prayers of untold hundreds, created a miracle recovery.
Also, he shares some of the awesome plans for OSV, and where he plans to take this amazing Catholic institution following this experience!
Even before the lockdowns began, finding the right job was tough. So many of us spend away our years working in an environment that didn’t bring out our best.
Now, as the lockdowns are ending, more employees than ever are looking for something new. We’ve all gotten a taste of something different, and it’s changed what we’re looking for.
But what should a guy look for?
How do you know if this job is a “good fit?” – and what does that even mean??
Join me in this episode as I explore a lot of modern tools that can help you understand what type of job and role you’ll find that fulfillment that we all desperately need.
Even if you’re not looking to change, it’s helpful to learn more about who you are!
Let’s face it. Most guys…just aren’t great at talking.
We’d rather gesture and grunt.
I definitely prefer “the look”
Yet, despite all our mastery of these essential skills, they don’t seem to satisfy our wives and family.
Join me in this episode to continue the discussion from last week about how to talk in way that brings us closer to the person we’re trying to connect with, rather than further away.
It’s worth it. Your family, Your friends, and even Your Lord want to have real communication!
