"One point I think is missing from the thread: God speaks in many ways. It may be His audible voice, but He uses his written word and the advice from others as well. Have you listened to all of this?"

"Two Christian movies, Fireproof and Courageous, both define a man (a husband), a real Christian man down to a tea. Since I came across these movies, I have attempted to imitate such manliness. Such manliness can only be achieved by the grace of God.…"
