I had the opportunity this past weekend to take my family - me, wife, 4yo daughter, and 18mo son - to a family Bar-B-Q. My cousins were celebrating their daughter's first birthday. They have a huge in-ground pool and, since I've been trying to teach…Continue

The Talk

While giving my 2yo son a bath yesterday, he realized (or at least this was the first time I noticed him doing it) that he could massage his penis with the wash rag to give himself an erection. He looked amazed. After letting it subside a bit, he…Continue

I remember the volcano project. Good times.

Middle School construction project with the boy.  Time to build the paper mache volcano!

So while camping this last weekend I was convincing Max, the three year old who is currently potty training, to pee on a tree.
"Pee on this tree Max, it has your name on it"
To which he replies, "Tree's don't have names."
The next time; "Why don't you pee on this tree, It has you name all over it"
"Trees don't have names on them, just leaves"
Then: "Max, why don't you pee over here on this tree?"
He walks up to a different tree and starts to pee, "No, this tree. It has my name!"

Johnny, I totally agree! The world would be a much better place if real men were stepping up and helping to grow more real men.

Comment by Joe W on August 28, 2013 at 11:46am

Awesome testimony, Art! Join any conversation you want. As a former Mentor and a former Foster Father, I know that is no reason to limit the father/son relationship to blood.

Post anywhere you want in this group. I look forward to your comments and feedback!

Comment by Art on August 28, 2013 at 10:13am
We were not blessed with a son(s). But I thank God I've had the privilege to mentor and be a surrogate Dad - most rewarding. There is one such young man in our life. He's 18 now and I never take for granted opening his text message that begins, 'hey Dad' . . ....
Comment by Joe W on April 4, 2013 at 10:44am
Yeah, see, that's not the type of yelling I'm talking about. And I didn't think it was, judging by your first comment.

I'm glad to hear you guys had fun. Funny how hard work feels a lot easier with help, even little help. And the bonding that occurs is beyond value.
Comment by Native Son on April 4, 2013 at 9:10am

Sometimes you have to yell a tad.  Usually and last weekend the phrase was "Watch Out!" when we had to tip the thing over to get at some fasteners at the top of the thing and drop lumber off the top.  Fun was had, along with some sore arms.  (Whole lot of "wrench bending" went on.)

Comment by Joe W on April 4, 2013 at 8:23am
NS - sounds like a bonding time if ever I heard one. So long as it was done in good spirits. (I only include that last part because working on the horse ranch with my father usually involved all those things, and a good deal of yelling.)

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
