Qualities that I attribute to masculinity are bold, brave, courageous, gallant, honor, powerful, resolute, robust, stout-hearted, and vigorous. It is level-headed and does not hold grudges. It is mature but able to play games with children. It is able to lead but willing to follow. It can say no when necessary but says yes when appropriate. It seeks to improve self and encourage others but stands against irresponsible behavior. It seeks knowledge and wisdom while discouraging ignorance. It gives without selfishness and takes only when it is just.
Me? In short, I am a happily married father of 3 adopted boys who was raised by his mother from the age of 6. The void that was left by the absence of my father has been hard to replace, but I have found the heart of a father through much struggle and pain. My hope is that my posts can help other men to find their true father’s heart.
