“He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness the prisoners.” Isaiah 61:1
“And let me tell you something: you don’t escape spiritual warfare simply because you choose not to believe it exists or because you refuse to fight it.” John Eldredge – Waking the Dead
When I first published my blog post, "Wild at Heart Boot Camp - As Iron Sharpens Iron," back in May of 2009, little did I know or realize how God would use that to begin to unravel my life and call me even deeper into walking with Him in both my spiritual and masculine journey.
In the last 9 years, I've heard from men - across the United States and from various points across the world - that they had discovered this post while seeking information and direction from God as to whether or not they should, too, attend the Wild at Heart Boot Camp for men led by John Eldredge and his team at Ransomed Heart.
What I wanted to do is now trust God's call on my heart and share the story He co-authored with me centered around the first Wild at Heart Advanced Boot Camp for men that I attended in the mountains of Colorado back in December of 2010.
Titled "Thin Places - A Tale of Strength & Honor from the Wild at Heart Advanced Boot Camp" and covering my experiences with God, other men, and the courageous men of the Ransomed Heart team, it is both testimony and truth covering the life-changing event and how it deeply impacted my heart, my story, and my walk with God.
You can find a link to it at my mission outpost MAXIMUS HEART - Stories from the Wellspring of Life. On the main page, click on "The Unfolding Story" tab - you will find the PDF download by scrolling down the page. My hope and prayer is that men who seek this event when offered every few years by my friends and allies at Ransomed Heart will also find a whisper of God's own calling upon their heart in the thin places where He meets us in the spiritual and masculine journey.
STRENGTH & HONOR!!
