“Men are struggling,” shares Brett. “I’ve had the opportunity to speak to men literally around the world. You know what? Most men struggle with the same things. They want to do it all on their own. Like Habakkuk says, ‘We worship our own strength.’ Unfortunately, it often takes a crisis to help men realize they need the love, grace and power of Christ to become the men they somehow sense they were made to be.”
