Designed to minister to the needs of Men! Enjoy Reading is a blog site dedicated to helping men deal with their daily struggles in life and to encourage men to be better servant leaders.   I share my personal struggles of the past and present.  As a young boy, my sister died in a car wreck.  My son has autism and that presents unique challenges for me as a father.  My house was flooded in 2016, and I lost all the contents.   I am a firm believer in the sacrament of marriage, but my own marriage ended after 20 years. This blog deals with these topics and more in an open manner using God’s word as a refuge.

I am devoted to men’s ministry and have grown spiritually due to the ministry of older men at his local church and now seeks to rise up men to become the type of servant leaders at home, work, and church as modeled by Jesus.  I am currently in training to become a Men’s Ministry Specialist with the General Commission of United Methodist Men.  I serve as the President of the Baton Rouge District of United Methodist Men.

In addition, I am preparing to become a Certified Lay Minister for the Louisiana Conference of the United Methodist Church to assist in my ministry to equip men to be servant leaders. I am a frequent contributor to Baton Rouge Christian Life Magazine and the Gulf South Men web site on topics for men of all ages and races. I know that men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ.

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law, he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;”

Psalm 1:1-6 (ESV)
