About the author

Here is what I do know. On this journey of stepping into my purpose, my personal growth and character transformation have been exponential. In the last two years since starting my ministry, I have felt God’s presence in my life more than ever before. I am becoming more like Christ each and every day. I have failed many times over, but I am learning radical self-love. I am learning to be an inspired leader, just by being.

There is no substitute for life learning other than getting into the arena and getting bloodied and sweaty. Taking risks and living a life of adventure. This journey of personal transformation will never end for me, but I know without taking that leap of faith and stepping into living my mission every day, I wouldn’t be the Spiritual Warrior that I am today. I AM a Spiritual Warrior who is called to be an inspired leader.

Spiritual Warrior Training Handbook

How to Go From Quiet Desperation to Divine Inspiration

The Spiritual Warrior Training Handbook is about redefining what it means to be a Christian man in today’s world. As men, we often try to find power in all the wrong places turning to drugs, sex, alcohol, violence, abuse, money, ambition, and materialism. This book shares an alternative path to finding power by being courageously vulnerable.

The vast majority of Christian men are living in quiet desperation. We may be consumed by feelings of self-doubt, hopelessness, and despair, even though we profess our Christian faith and Jesus as our Savior. We battle with the religious conditioning we grew up with that tells us as long as we look, perform, and act a certain way we are good Christian men.

The strong desire for comfort and security runs rampant among Christian men. And in doing so, we try to be what the world thinks we should be: rich and powerful while climbing the corporate ladder. We end up sacrificing who God created us to be living in a constant state of smoldering discontent. We shortchange ourselves and the world because we make choices based on what we think will make others happy rather than pursuing our God-given purpose and following divine inspiration.

Until we start to see ourselves the way God sees us we will continue to live in quiet desperation living a life of self-doubt shrinking back and playing small. And until we believe in ourselves enough to start to take chances in our lives, we will continue to live a life of apathy and soul-crushing complacency.

Men and Christian men are suffering from loneliness and isolation like never before, and suicide is on the rise. According to the Suicide Prevention Resource Center between the years 2009 and 2018 suicide rates among adults between the ages of 25 and 44 have surpassed the suicide rates of older adults (65+)

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention statistics revealed in 2018, men died by suicide 3.56X more than women. White males accounted for 70% of suicide deaths in 2018. The faith community I belong to has put to rest ten people due to suicide since the pandemic started. This is a heartbreaking reality.

In the Spiritual Warrior Training Handbook, I share in methodical detail how we can start to create environments where men can be courageously vulnerable. Because until men have a place where we can share our hearts, our dreams, our brokenness, our failures, our victories, and who we truly are, we will continue to feel the wrath of unhealthy masculinity.

Key Takeaways:

· You will learn how to stand in your own power with humility as the king of your life.
· You will learn how to overcome the need to explain, defend, and prove yourself by accepting your humanity and the humanity of others.
· You will learn how to get ego and pride out of the way and allow God to flow through you.
· You will learn how to be yourself in the world following your inspiration.
· You will learn how to be healed from codependency, shame and guilt, sadness, and beating yourself up.
· You will learn how to lead your life forward by being happy through divine inspiration.

This book is about helping men show up in our power, seeing ourselves the way God sees us, taking chances on ourselves, and being courageously vulnerable. It is a calling for a revolutionary change of what it means to be a Christian man in today’s world.

I was raised in a Christian home, as a rebellious PK (pastor’s kid). Until a devastating divorce brought me to my knees about ten years ago, I battled codependency, neediness, and insecurity on many levels never thinking I was good enough. The symptoms of all of this resulted in exercise addiction, love and relationship addiction, perfectionism, and ultimately self-esteem that was about as fragile as a sandcastle made during high tide. I was desperate for someone to tell me I was a good man, and I went looking for it in all the wrong places.

Over the past ten years since my divorce, I have left the comfort and security of a six figure job in the pharmaceutical industry to start my own men’s spiritual warrior coaching and fitness ministry. It’s a faith adventure I never could have imagined. If someone would have told me I would be in ministry ten years ago I would have said they were absolutely crazy.

Through my experiences, I will guide you through the process that I went through and am still going through to become a spiritual warrior. I believe Jesus is the ultimate spiritual warrior, who has guided me on the path of getting out of quiet desperation and leading me each and every day towards divine inspiration.
