Happy New Year!
We've been hosting the True Men Blog at two blog sites and it's time to roll them into one site. It's been a challenge to take care of both sites. We've decided to go over to WordPress. We're so thankful that you've followed this blog faithfully over the la...

A Noble Fir Parable
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  – Psalm 19:1 This is the story of the Blonski family Christmas Tree 2006. Up to that time my family and I have been going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down a fresh Chri...

play in 10-player tournaments. We all start out with $1500 in chips. Usually,

Know God
“The Lord of hosts is
with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” Psalm 46:7 When I was about 8 years old, I lived in a house on a hill
overlooking Long Lake in Northern Illinois. It was March and I was looking
