Why subscribe?

Become a better father and build a lasting foundation for your great grand-children.

You get one post every Monday about fatherhood, masculinity, and homeschooling. At least half of these will be free posts. Forever.

When you subscribe, I’ll also send you a free guide on the best-illustrated children’s books that belong on your bookshelf. The stories you read to your children will shape their moral imagination.

This list will ensure you are reading your children the right stories.

The publication assumes a Christian perspective, so don’t be shocked when Bible verses are quoted.
