It isn’t uncommon for men to get started down a career path that was once exciting and rewarding only to find that, years later, they don’t have the same passion for it they once did. While it isn’t wise to up and quit our job simply because it doesn’t thrill us like it once ...

Fireside Topic: What qualities make for a good family?

Images of the 1950’s nuclear family and most family oriented sitcoms give off the vibe that being a family, the kind of family you would want to have, comes naturally. Even real-life families that seem to have it all together can come across that way as well. Truth is, most families that you ...

Fireside Topic: What books have had the most impact on you as a man?

I have a confession: I didn’t really enjoy reading until I was about 28. As it turns out I am more of an auditory learner, so reading and then listening to the words in my head (rather than just processing them) slows things down a bit. However, that also made me more critical ...

Fireside Topic: What is your religious background and are you still practicing?

Part of coming into your own is evaluating the beliefs you were raised with and either making them yours or eliminating them. This applies to everything from religion to whether you should drive a Ford or a Chevy. In the last few decades religion has become less and less relevant ...

Fireside Topic: What situations make you feel awkward and unmanly?

Every man has a situation where he feels out-of-place, unprepared, unsure, and unmanly. It doesn’t have to be a big event, sometimes it’s the small things in life. Maybe it’s something that has been an issue since you were a boy. Perhaps we need some knowledge, or some courage, or ...

Fireside Topic: Do you celebrate Easter out of tradition or conviction?

Fireside Topic: What tattoo would you get?

Tattoos aren’t for everyone, but when done well they are pretty darn cool. Part of what holds people back is deciding on a design that is meaningful and will still be meaningful (and not stupid) 20 years from now. Whether or not you are serious about getting inked, thinking about what ...
