Some more good news…

Share good news. Ignite change.

Some good news… Sara is pregnant! Owen’s baby brother is due in August.

To be honest, at first, I felt a sense of loss about having another boy. It set in that I will probably never have a daughter. Add it to the list of things I will never get to experience in my life. But more than that, I felt fear. Part of me doesn’t feel “man enough” to be a dad to two boys. Part of me still feels like a lost, confused boy myself. 

But as the weeks go by, I notice that fear shifting into a sense of purpose. The world desperately needs more men taking a new path, balancing the masculine and feminine, living with courage and sensitivity. I now have a more important role than ever in making that change.

Which of your fears are calling on you to take on a new mission in your life?
