The Importance of Choosing to Live with Intention and Purpose

January 18, 2023
We all struggle to actively live with purpose and intention day in and day out. Today Sam and John are joined by a military veteran, teacher, and woodworker, Paul Hyatt, who explains the richness of his life and how he lives each day with significance. The strength of society is dependent on men living to their fullest, who strive, regardless of their shortcomings or struggles, to live each day with meaning and purpose.

How to Avoid Failure at Your New Year’s Resolutions (w/ Fr. David Abernethy)

December 28, 2022
This time of year is filled with thoughts of change and renewal. Men take upon themselves resolutions to better their lives, however, the majority of these resolutions fail. Why do they fail and what purpose of resolutions is lacking that keeps men from moving forward in the active life? We turn to a great priest and expert in the Desert Fathers, Fr.
