Rhett Smith is a marriage and family therapist who has seen men of God
torn between culture's interpretations of masculinity. Should they be manly-men
or artistic-sensitive types? Is there a place for masculinity beyond (or between)
these two definitions?
Yes, there is. There is a place near God for those
who love Him. For men tired of fighting culture's definitions, Rhett offers four
reminders that will revive the life, families, and work of men seeking God:
#1: Take care of yourself.
Reminder #2: Find community.
Reminder #3: Be ready
Reminder #4: Remember the work you love.
Each reminder comes with
thoughtful explanations and encouragement, along with a challenge to bring the reminder
into practice. This piece is taken from Rhett's book, What It Means to Be a Man:
God's Design in a World Full of Extremes, and is perfect for a few weeks
of discussion at a men's Bible study or small group.
