Henry David Thoreau wrote over 200 years ago, “The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.” That’s even more true of today’s men. Most men today would respond, “What in the world is my song?!” In this chapter Craig takes you on a step by step process to understand each man’s personal purpose and calling, their “song”, that can guide the direction and influence of their lives.
My greatest joy in life is my family. I know, that sounds like the comment you’re supposed to make as a man and father. All I can say is I literally shake my head in wonder at the family I have: my wife Beryl; my daughter Barclay and son-in-law Vince, their four daughters, Bella, Brynn, Brooke and Blake; my son Alec, my son Conor and daughter-in-law Bonnie, their daughter Gemma and son Calvin. Every one of them is a genuine gift. Beyond that, I have a calling that I live out through Peregrine Ministries. It is to help men: Understand their identity in Christ, Embrace their role as men, and Live out their God-given calling in life. Bottom line is I’m convinced men matter and I want to help them live life on purpose.
