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.


138 – Find Your Passion with Jeremy Ryan Slate

God has a plan for every single one of us – but we often don’t do a great job discerning it. It can often take struggle, effort, and even failure to find that path.

Yet God did not leave us unaided. Built into your being is a unique blend of passion and drive that, when harnessed, will propel you forward. This is true whatever your personality or strengths.

Join me in this episode as Mr Jeremy Ryan Slate and I explore his passion and journey through life. While keeping it light (and even a bit silly) we touch on some really powerful choices and moments we all come to: how to stay connected with your wife through difficult times, how to pick the pieces back up after a failure, and how to work on improving myself to get the needed perspective. There are a lot of really practical pieces of advice he offers all of us.

137 – Why Intimacy and Connection Matter In Your Marriage

While it’s not universal, it is very common for a husband to want to have physical connection to his wife – and a strong one. But a lot of us go through periods where that connection is less strong. Often we just “soldier on” and hope it gets better.

Often times, we try to ask our wife what she wants to feel better connected – only to become discouraged when what she suggested doesn’t actually work.

Sometimes a guy will just accept that this is his “cross” to carry and (grudgingly) “accept” it.

After all, isn’t abstinence kind of like fasting? That’s good, right?

Join me in this episode as I break open why it’s so important for husbands to be constantly engaged in improving themselves for the sake of their marriage. Physical intimacy can often be an indicator of where the husband has stopped working on himself. While there are genuine times we are called by the Lord to periods of abstinence, that’s no reason to accept it when it’s not necessary and give up.

We must always be working on ourselves, to become our best version. Connection – all connection – matters in marriage.

136 – Understanding Female Attraction

One of the most common desires of married men is for more physical intimacy with their wives. There are countless “solutions” offered, often by the wives themselves, that don’t really seem to deliver.

It’s easy for a husband to find this frustrating, maybe even infuriating; why can’t we just solve this and both be happy?

What if female attraction actually does exist, but doesn’t work at all like male attraction?

Join me in this episode as I discuss the nature of female sexual attraction from a scientific perspective. What will actually activate our wives’ attraction? My claim is even if they don’t know, we can put a few pieces together.

I walk through the biology of what females are biologically programmed to look for, compared to what men are programmed to look for.

This episode is likely the first of several exploring the question of how men can improve themselves in order to improve their physical connection with their wives.
