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.


96 – Rite Of Passage with Steven Arms

Masculinity is under attack right now. We rarely even use that word without the word “toxic.” Our boys are left struggling trying to decide what it means to be a man, and if they qualify.

Rarely do our young men make good choices when struggling to understand what it means to be man. Instead of virtue, they pursue women, risk, or pleasure.

But what if you, as the father, can do something about that?

Join me in this episode to discover how society solved this problem in the past. Steven Arms is the author of the book Milestone to Manhood. He describes the idea of a Rite of Passage – a way to help our boys transition into becoming men. We owe it to our children to help them through what might be the most difficult transition of their lives.

You can find the book Milestone to Manhood on Amazon

95 – Pornography Medication with Isaiah Cruz

Addictions are hard to beat – trust me, I know! Yet, so often, the advice we get is to just “try harder.”

Doesn’t work.

So how about something different? How about something that shifts your brain chemistry directly?

Join me in this episode as I’m joined by psychiatric nurse Isaiah Cruz and we discuss medications available to help break addiction. This is a powerful new field of research that is having some stunning impacts.

Now, a lot of folks resist medications in general – especially those prescribed for the brain. And, in fairness, there are some good reasons to. But hear us out – if you’re fighting for the holiness and purity needed to preserve your marriage and family, you need to think outside the box.

94 – My Addiction Story

This was a difficult episode to record. Like many people’s, my story has some really dark parts that I’ve suffered a lot of shame about. It’s not easy to share.

Exploring our stories from the past is an incredibly powerful way to find healing, yet a lot of us are discouraged and don’t believe healing is really possible. For those, hearing how someone else made it out can give hope.

My desire is for you to find hope from my story. If you, or someone you know, feels trapped and ashamed in addiction, get the help you need to find freedom!

If this episode connects with you, I strongly encourage you to schedule a free call, today. There is hope. You can finally find peace, without shame.

“It has been extremely helpful to have someone that can look at things from an outside perspective and ask objective, and hard, questions and then follow that up with some great resource recommendations. He has helped me question my own assumptions which has allowed me to get clear and focused on my goals and objectives to and be able to make changes in my circumstances and life.”
