1. Be her hero: how not to suck as a husband Part 1
Regardless of the condition of your marriage (i.e. strong, average, struggling), Doug Fields knows how to talk to men in their language about what they don’t want to hear about (regarding their marriage). Since marriage was God’s idea and sex was God’s invention (thank you God) husbands have got to figure out how to love their wives more than anyone else alive. In this first session Doug sets the foundational stage of marriage and challenges men with the first of seven very practical ideas: “Don’t say everything you think!” Violating this principle never works! It creates defensiveness, stirs anger, induces shame, doesn’t motivate and no one wins when men are undisciplined with their words. There’s better ways and Doug shares those in his funny, penetrating and challenging style. This first session will definitely surprise a lot of guys by Doug’s humor, straightforward language and will have guys looking forward to the next sessions.

3. The Life Secret God Tells You In Advance
All of us have heard this expression: “You only live once!”
Usually, we use this phrase to convince ourselves to do something that is a little out of the box, or to seize the moment, or to take advantage of an experience that we might not otherwise have if we don’t do it now. There’s this sort of compressed urgency that we only have one life to live, and it’s not a soap opera. When you have that inkling and you take advantage of it, usually there is a reward on the other end and you’re glad that you did it. Read More
4. In case you missed them….
I am praying for you each week during the month. Next month, I’m going to ask for your help with a few things. Again, take courage and live as God’s man, flaws and all. Don’t let your struggles keep you from doing good. Come to the site and share your comments and thoughts, and encourage others! Until next week…
