January 2012 - MAKING MEN - "Raising boys has its own special challenges. I was fortunate enough to have two sons who have grown into godly men. They are excellent sons and husbands, men of whom I can be proud."
February 2012 - THE MAN I MOST ADMIRE - "Why do I admire my father more than any other man? He lives as a consistent Christian witness. He makes being a Christian admirable and respectable. He makes Jesus attractive by living a consistent Christian life. There is no phoniness about him. He doesn't say one thing and do another."
March 2012 - IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME - "I have a good Christian friend who fell into sexual sin this past weekend. I'm very depressed about it. His behavior was wrong and unacceptable. He has admitted his sinful behavior and is seeking guidance and healing and restitution for the person that he victimized. He will have to register as a sex offender and face how the public will now treat him."
April 2012 - TIM TEBOW AND THE MILLION DOLLAR SEX HIT - " I'm disgusted about Tim Tebow. I'm not disgusted with him, I'm proud of him and his example as a man, a real man. I'm disgusted that a $1,000,000 hit has been placed on his head. A website that encourages affairs and lascivious living has stated that $1,000,000 will be awarded to anyone who can come up with real evidence that Tebow is not a virgin."
May 2012 - STEPS THAT LEAD TO AN AFFAIR - "There are twelve common steps that usually occur in sequence as a relationship moves toward an adulterous affair. These steps often occur over a long period of time, but a man and a woman can move thru these stages of an affair in a single evening. Becoming aware of the steps helps us to recognize what might be happening to us so we can stop the process before we are in over our heads."
June 2012 - THE ANTI-SOCIAL RELIGIOUS BAD BOY - "The anti-social bad boy places high value on being tough, thick-skinned and powerful. He wants people to fear him. You may look at that statement and ask, "come on, we could spot this guy a mile away, there's no way he could be a church leader!"
July 2012 - EVEN SOUL WINNING IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR SALVATION - "The Church in my parts was shocked to learn recently that a brother who has been trained by a prominent evangelism group to the point that he was flying to California to participate in helping train others how to share the gospel with the lost and he was often found in various local churches teaching people how to share their faith, he was arrested for sexual molestation of various women in his practice and was found guilty by the court and sent to prison leaving behind a devastated wife and young children to take care of themselves."
August 2012 - MY FIRST RECOLLECTION OF GOD TALKING TO ME - "I remember when I was about 5-years-old being outside playing with an ant hill. I had a water hose and flooded the ant hill. As I saw ants pouring out, some of them would gather into small pools and just lay there. I started to feel some compassion and put a stick in some of the small pools so that the ants could walk on it to dry land. I remember hearing inside my head, “do you want to try to save yourself or are you going to let Me save you?” "
September 2012 - THE SOCIAL COSTS OF PORN - "Pornography is tearing apart the fabric of our society. You may think this is an overstatement.

October 2012 - HONORING YOUR WIFE FINANCIALLY - "You've got to work hard. You’ve got to out-work the other men if you want to feed your family. That’s your responsibility as a man. If you want any men to respect you, if you want your wife to respect you, if you want your children to respect you, you pay the bills. You make the money, you feed the family."
November 2012 - CHASING BOYS FROM CHURCH - "Bob raised three boys. His wife took them to Sunday school every week. Vacation Bible School was a highlight of their summer. She drove the lads back and forth to youth group. They sacrificed time and money to send their boys to Christian camps. Bob even helped finance a mission trip to Mexico. Today, Bob's sons are young adults. Not one of them goes to church. There’s no sign of a relationship with Jesus Christ."
December 2012 - NO MORE MALENESS AT THE UNIVERSITY - "A political science professor at Butler University asks students to disregard their “American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status” when writing and speaking in the classroom – a practice the school’s arts and sciences dean defended as a way to negate students’ inherent prejudices."
