Men who reach middle age often begin to wonder anew who they are, where they’re going and what’s the meaning of life.

In this Focus on the Family podcast (video above, audio below), Stephen Arterburn shares that God is not afraid of those questions, and He wants to point men to Himself through those questions instead of pointing them to a Harley or to a career change.

Based on his book, 6 Ways for Men to Thrive in Middle Age, Stephen comes alongside men to help them live their best life at middle age instead of spiraling into a crisis.

Focus on the Family provides relevant, practical support to help families thrive in every stage of life.  Listen to their daily radio show weekdays on Vision. Find your local times here.

Monitoring What We Watch

Does what we watch influence our behavior? Does it change how we interact with the world, and more importantly, how our children interact with it? Kids can be so easily influenced and pick up on things, even if they don’t always understand the meaning and complexity behind it.

Are You Really Ok?

Did you know that as many as one in five Australians are affected by mental illness every year? This is a problem that we cannot afford to ignore. The impacts are being felt across our communities, both on the health system and the justice system.
