Stand Tall In The Sight Of The Father


God should come first, but what does that really mean?

I’m Michael Jaquith. A modern Catholic guy, a podcaster, and a Life Coach. This podcast is dedicated to those guys who really want to grow and become the man God created them to be.

We’ll talk about both practical strategies for managing life, better ways to view and engage the world, and how to take one step closer to standing tall in the sight of the Father.

124 – Losing Weight with Brady Ross

Weight loss isn’t usually as hot a topic for guys as it is for girls. We tend not to be as worried about our physical appearance, and we all too often focus on other deliverables in our life.

But what if there’s more to health and fitness than the number that comes from the bathroom scale?

Join me in this episode as Brady Ross walks me through his weight loss story and what role weight played in his life. He talks about some practical ways that he lost weight and he helps other men lose weight. The most important part is your mindset, and Brady gives us some awesome perspective!
