Naked Man Moleskin

The PAX of JAX brought their “A”-game to the BOHICA basketball courts and once again left no doubt that Jacksonville is a football town… T-claps to Pyro for ensuring that the PAX was not shutout at the charity stripe.


YHC has been fortunate to have a dedicated hour a week to spend with the Lord in my church’s Adoration Chapel. During that time YHC has done some reading, most recently re-starting The Resolution for Men, a book based on the movie Courageous. The chapter YHC read most recently encouraged men to stay strong and courageous as leaders of their families. There are so many things in life that can drain our energy that we have nothing left but reserves for our family. During these times we may tend to lean on our wives and try to have them lead. For me, this message was very timely. With my responsibilities at work, pressures of school, and things I do for the Church, have taken a lot of my energy these past few weeks. This chapter reminded me that our #1 responsibility in this world is to be the leaders of our family. They deserve more than reserves. And during times of struggle, we lean on our brothers for support and prayers so that we may remain strong and courageous.
