This week we are focusing on being a father. Like the quote below, we realize that we fail and fail miserably at fatherhood.  But, we need to realize our faults and failures and learn from them. Ask God for guidance and wisdom, which he promises us. ...

I can't think of much that is harder to kill.
 
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chr. 7:14).

Hey Friends!

I just wanted to let you know about a project I'm working on and really excited about!

I'm starting a newsletter for guys. It's called, The Whetstone Newsletter. The name was inspired by Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."  If you didn't know a whetstone is used to sharpen knives and other tools. The Whetstone will be a once-a-week email newsletter to encourage you to live out your calling as a leader in your home, church, and community. In each week's issue you'll get the best hand-picked links to thought provoking articles, podcast episodes, books, and my commentary on them. The first issue is due out on February 18th and then every Wednesday following.

Why am I starting this?  We're busy. We have work obligations, family obligations, church obligations. All that adds up to not a lot of time to further our growth.  I enjoy finding material to challenge, inspire, and grow myself. But, what good is it if I just keep it all to myself. I'd like to share my insights and resources with you. I know that you'll find this valuable in your life.

So, how can you be a part of this?
1-Sign up for the newsletter here: www.mattrise.com
2-Invite other guys to sign up too. You can forward this to your buddies, forward them a copy of the newsletter when it arrives, share it on facebook and twitter.
