Today Sam and John are joined by a shepherd and fatherly leader, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler Texas. We have the great privilege of hearing from Bishop Strickland about why the world needs real men, as well as the virtues and spirituality needed to be a real man. Our modern times have thrown us dozens of competing images of what it means to be a man and we need strong examples to set things right. We discuss how you can embrace this call to true masculinity and live your God-given role in your family and society.

How do we break free from that which is keeping us in bondage or tempting us to addictions and further comfort?
