Looking to get more involved in the public domain of our faith.

It’s a new year, gentlemen. So what does that mean for us? Maybe you are on this site because you feel that itch. Something telling you that you can be better. Something deep inside of you wanting to be better. I found this website about a year ago in the same position. I didn’t like […]

I subscribe to a lot of different email lists that I find can be a positive influence in my life. Most of them are faith-based and some are health-based. One of the lists I subscribe to is by a health and fitness guy who is also a Christian, Shaun Hadsall. I read one this morning […]

I wrote last week about my spiritual “rut” I was finding myself in. I committed to re-commit but was still feeling that emptiness inside of me. I went to confession on Saturday and the attending priest brought up a great point. In those times of emptiness and unfulfilled feelings, you have to realize that you […]

Do you ever feel like your faith life is a roller coaster? I have experienced spiritual highs and lows. So what brought me back? Today’s reading.
Jeremiah 31: “I will make a new covenant…”
Psalm 51: “Create a clean heart in me, O God”
Matthew 16: “Who do you say that I am?”

We’re coming back from a long holiday weekend. That usually means a sluggish start to the work week. Too much food, drink, fun, etc. Long interruptions in my daily routine can often lead to a series of slip-ups that very easily turn into a landslide. I doubt I am alone on this one. So how do we stop it?

CommunionLord God, help us to raise our children the way you intend. Be there for us as we endure the pain of watching our children suffer afflictions to come out stronger followers of Christ. Help us to show our children what surrender is. Going into this Solemnity of Corpus Christi, let us be the father’s that God has designed us to be. Amen.

Happy Father’s Day!

IDThe Iron Disciples group focuses on our roles as husbands, fathers, and most importantly, disciples of God. We don’t have any strict rules or format. We bring our experiences, troubles, and triumphs to the table, and we talk it out. These aren’t Holy Rollers, they aren’t clergy, they aren’t “Holier than thou”. They are real, everyday men.

Don’t think you need a fellowship group in your life? Can’t bring yourself to break down that wall to your heart? Trust me, I was there. I will tell you exactly why I need this group and you might too.
