Dr. Eric Mason has given each man a shot into his soul in Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole. When I thought about that word “shot” I first thought about a needle carrying a serum that treats our woundedness. Like a flu shot inoculates us against the anticipated flu strains, Manhood Restored also provides a truth serum to our souls as men. If we take it in and ingest it we have the truth we need to walk forward as men and the courage to face the potential hazards all around us.
On this episode of the DadPOD, a podcast for men, we discuss some of the challenges he faces as a young father raising children in an increasingly sexually permissive culture.

This is why the kinds of questions that we will answer in this weeks Leaving Your Legacy journal will either be fondly recalled or hard to bring to the surface of our minds.
