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.


181 – Encouraging Youth with Ahmard Vital

Are frustrated and unsure about how to really reach your teenage (or even 20’s) son? 

Have you tried a lot, but they just don’t seem interested?

Maybe your son isn’t yet a teenager, but you’re worried because other dads you know have shared some unsettling stories?

Join me in this episode as Ahmard Vital shares both his story, as well as practical lessons from his work with young men. It’s hard to be a male of any age in our world right now, but particularly hard on the youth. Our only hope – at any age – is a strong connection with the Lord. But how do we fathers encourage our sons in this direction? Listen to find out more!

You can find out more about Ahmard on his website:

180 – How To Seek Greatness

So many men are slowly dying inside as they choose comfort or convenience over the greater calling that God has placed within their lives.

Mostly because that battle is scary! It will cost you greatly.

The cost to inaction, however, is actually greater.

Join me in this episode as I talk about how it takes a balance of both humility and magnanimity to counter pride. It takes a willingness to embrace discomfort as part of the pursuit of adventure that God has planned for your life.

You were made for greatness. You were made for battle. You were not made to simply exist.

Choose life!

179 – How to discern a change

There’s a number of times in life we come to a potential crossroads in our life. We can either stumble along on our own, or we can bring God into the process.

One of those works a whole lot better than others

Join me in this episode as I discuss how you can include God in your discernment process and make a decision that you will respect. To stand strong as a man and lead your marriage and family, you must be able to make a strong decision, aligned with God’s will, and stand in confidence of that.

I’ll help you do that.
