You made it. The long awaited day has finally arrived; it’s time for Manspeak to start churning out posts on all the things you guys want to know about! These are real posts from real men like you and me, workin’ men, coal mining men, men who greet the dawn with a thunderous belch, men who feel the irresistable impulse to punch each other in the gut, men who are as tough as nails, men who are strong as the day is long, men who….ehh, who are we kidding!

Does being a man necessarily entail a life of strenuous back-breaking manual labor? Does being a man mean that you’re good at bossing others around? Does being a man mean you slight the opposite sex? Does being a man mean that you get to do what you want to do when you want to do it? If you haven’t noticed, our culture is seriously confused about the roles of men and women. Does it not seem odd to have mothers fighting in the deserts of Iraq? Does the idea of a ‘stay at home dad’ bother you a little? Is the proverbial ‘TV sitcom dad’ a good example of masculinity?

Most men today have a thing or two to learn about being a man; especially what it means to be a godly man. Does the Christian faith have something to do with how we act as men? What is God’s will for us as men? Will it look different for us to live out the Christian life as men rather than women?

Welcome to Manspeak. We’re 7 guys from different backgrounds who mess up all the time! We do, however, have the most important things in common. We’ve been saved by God’s grace. We want to follow Jesus Christ in all He’s called us to do. We want to be godly men for His glory. We also have a lot to learn, and we’re so thankful that God has placed us in the context for Christian men to grow and prosper in the Lord: the local church. We’re on a journey, and we want to bring you along for the ride as we seek to understand and apply God’s revealed will for us as men.

Now punch your friend in the face, check out the site, and grunt and growl a little.

Our schedule for postings is on the left. We have pages for bios, evangelism, resources, and the ‘Man Law’ videos are coming soon. Feel free to leave comments and check back with us daily. Thanks for stopping by!
