What does it mean to be a man of God in our day and age?

Dear Friends,

Such a powerful Bible teaching regarding manhood by Derek Prince. God’s heart for men is to see them walking out the destinies He has created for them. But before that can happen, they need to understand the primary roles God has assigned to them.

Discover man’s true calling and learn how to fulfill it.

Have a great day.

Suffering isn’t the end of your story. It’s the beginning of a new story.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _

Katherine and Jay Wolf are survivors, storytellers, advocates, and evangelists.

In 2008, at the age of 26, Katherine nearly died from a catastrophic brainstem stroke. Her survival and recovery, not to mention that of her marriage and family, have been nothing short of miraculous.

Katherine and Jay are in full-time ministry together through HOPE HEALS, leveraging their story to encourage those with broken bodies, broken brains, and broken hearts. Engaging both faith-based and secular communities, they seek to bridge the gap between those disabled on the outside and those disabled on the inside with the hope that Jesus brings healing to the deepest pains we all carry.

They co-authored their first book, HOPE HEALS, published by Zondervan in April 2016, and launched HOPE HEALS CAMP, a Summer camp for families with disabilities in June 2017.

They currently reside in Los Angeles with their two sons, James and John.

A 68 day bushcraft trip with man’s best friend: 700 km’s, survival skills, camping, wildlife

Dear Friends,

At this moment I’m watching a new bushcraft, camping and survival trip/series by Justin Barbour. I recommend it to everyone who loves hiking, bushcraft and the outdoors.

Who is Justin?

“Hi my name is Justin and I love life in the country. I joke and say that I was born in the wrong era because I am more at home living in the wilderness than I am in my own house and civilization. My YouTube channel will document my outdoor life.

My goal is to share my passion and learning experiences. I go on many camping expeditions but also do single overnighters in tents and improvised shelters. I often have my dogs Saku and Bear along.

Thanks for watching!”

Justin “Newfoundland Explorer” shares adventure and outdoor life within the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Some of his large personal feats include canoeing 1000 km’s across the desolate Labrador Peninsula and snowshoeing/ packrafting /hiking 700 km’s across Newfoundland’s most remote and rugged wilderness, both trips were solo along with his sidekick Saku.

He has also hiked and canoed 120 km’s across the island’s Avalon Peninsula and paddled 60 km’s down a portion of Labrador’s untamed Sandhill River.


_ _ _ _ _ _

“Join me and man’s best friend (aka Saku) for a 68 day bushcraft camping and survival trip/series. We travel 700 kilometers across the challenging woods of Newfoundland. It’s survival in every sense of the word other than the fact that we live primarily on carried rations. We do catch many fish for extra calories later in the trip. We are often many miles from civilization.

I am hoping for a minimum of 6 episodes from this expedition. This is something that Saku and I have put a lot of blood, sweat, tears and time into. We hope you enjoy the series.

BACKSTORY: In the Spring of 2017 I embarked on a 700km snowshoe, Alpacka raft, backpacking expedition across the harsh yet magical Newfoundland interior wilderness. I was solo as a human but far from alone. By my side from start to finish was my loyal Cape Shore Water Dog, Saku.

We went through thick and thin together in order to travel across some of the least explored wilderness regions of our province. We encountered frequent wildlife while battling desolate barrens, thick bush, mountain ranges, storms, sub-zero temperatures, raging whitewater, massive lakes, the Atlantic Ocean and monster trout.

Often we were days of man-power travel away from civilization. It was a big challenge and an unforgettable blessing. Newfoundland is the island portion of the province “Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada”

We have A LOT of unoccupied land and endless outdoor opportunities. The interior of the island is largely uninhabited. What exists is primarily remote wilderness. That is where our trip took place.

From the western side of the island we traversed for the most part trackless woods and waters to reach the eastern end of the province. I documented the entire journey by camera and that is what I will share with you here on my channel.

Make sure to LIKE, SHARE and SUBSCRIBE if you appreciate these videos. Also HIT THE BELL for NOTIFICATIONS so you won’t miss an episode. Please comment below the videos. I’d love to hear your feedback. Thanks!”

Walk for Jesus – Jerusalem Pilgrimage: Episode 8

Dear Friends,

Last monday I took the car and drove to Reims where I started a new Long Distance Trail called the ‘Via Francigena‘. Walked from Reims to Châlons-en-Champagne through the vineyards of the famous ‘Champagne’.

The history of the Via Francigena pilgrim route dates back to the Middle Ages. The full Via Francigena pilgrimage is from Canturbery to Rome, covering 1,700 km, passing through France and Switzerland along the way.

This time a short episode of two days of hiking. Next time I hope to spend some more time on the trail. Below the route and the pictures I made of this trip.

The current state of manhood

Dear Friends,

Singer and songwriter Don Moen interviews New York Times Bestselling Author Stephen Mansfield to talk about his childhood, faith, career and the current state of manhood.

Manhood in decline

True manhood is in decline in our generation. Our society has deformed masculinity, leaving most men unfulfilled and far from the impact they were made for. GreatMan will help you fight the battles of your life, the battles you must fight to be the man you are meant to be.

Former years

Stephen grew up as the son of a US Army officer, and spent many formative years living in Berlin during the dark days of the Cold War. Returning to the US, he attended college, earning a bachelor’s degree in history and philosophy and later a master’s in history and public policy and a doctorate in history and literature.

He also began acquiring a reputation as a speaker of both depth and humor. During this season of his life, he wrote books, hosted a radio show, spoke widely, and led a number of social-service organizations.

“Buckle your chinstrap”

This book for men was birthed out of both a passion and an anger. I felt anger over how men are usually portrayed on television as fools or as dogs hanging out at the pole shoving $20 bills into some woman’s underwear.

My passion came from listening to young men on university campuses demand, “Look, I know we’re all screwed up, but just tell me what to do. No one has ever told us what a man is. Just tell us what we are supposed to do to be men.”

In response, I wrote this book. I intend it as a hard-hitting, raw, path for men who want to become great men. I have filled the book with clear principles, historical vignettes, quotes, questions for men to challenge each other with, and even book and movie recommendations.

This book is not everything a man needs to be a great man, but it is more than a start.

“Buckle your chinstrap before you pick up this book because it is truth and its challenge will hit you as you’ve never been hit. A must read for every man!” – Mark Brunell, former NFL quarterback

Understanding God’s Plan for the End of Life

Dear Friends,

Our lives have value until the very end of them. In this one day Focus on the Family broadcast Jim Daly & John Fuller talk with Joni Eareckson Tada over her book, When is it Right to Die?


Joni powerfully shares what she has learned about joy in the midst of chronic pain and suffering; and how no one can determine either the quality or the quantity of your life—that is in God’s hands.

She shares on the dangerous ramifications of the “Right to Die” movement and “Mercy killing” and how as a society we need to rise up and love those with disabilities and end of life challenges with compassion.

She offers hope to families facing end of life decisions and reminds that in the book of James we are told to ask God for wisdom and He will lead and guide us.
