You are probably reading this page because one of our members gave you the “Xmas Dare For Dads” postcard.

We printed those postcards because we believe it is the duty of men to read scripture to their families.

We called it “a dare” because this a very risky thing to propose in this anti-man culture.

The modern church has been hammered into a cuckold kind of submission by the forces of feminism for over a century now, but we do want you to know that there are still a few men left in this world who work, sweat, bleed, pray, and fight to the glory of God.

We don’t kiss the feet of Mary, we don’t wear skinny jeans, we don’t talk about Jesus as if he was our boyfriend, and we don’t really care if that kind of talk hurts your feelings. It is time to man up.

Below are some links to get you started on the road back to biblical masculinity. Yes, we are willing to walk alongside you as brothers, but we are not going to hold your hand.

Before you start clicking links, however, you need to decide whether you are willing to take the first big step and read a few Bible verses to your family. Make the commitment. You will not regret it.
