This week, Jerrad interviews author, pastor, and friend, Chris Nye about his new book Less of More, and what it means for us as men. Description of Less of More: For most Americans, the pursuit of happiness really means the pursuit of more--more money, more prestige, more stuff. We've made idols out of innovation, growth, power, and wealth. Far from offering us happiness and satisfaction, this has only left us exhausted, isolated, miserable, and wondering if there is a better way.There is. Less of More exposes our pursuit of more for what it truly is: an attempt to satisfy our souls with the temporary instead of the eternal. Pastor and writer Chris Nye invites us to consider what a full and abundant life looks like apart from money, status, and power. He exposes the lies inherent in our obsession with growth, fame, and wealth and calls us to a countercultural life marked by connection, obscurity, vulnerability, and generosity.If you have gained the world but lost your soul, Less of More offers a compelling path toward a life of true, deep, lasting satisfaction with Jesus--not us--at the center of it.

When we asked the wives of the Dad Tired community what they thought was one of the best ways a husband can be the spiritual leader of their home, without question, the number one answer was "To pray with us".

This week, host Jerrad Lopes introduces listeners to Aaron Smith, a husband, father and founder of Husband Revolution, an online marriage ministry. Aaron's goal in ministry is to revive the hearts of husbands and fathers around the world. Listen as Aaron speaks about combating our human tendency to compare ourselves to others, parenting techniques, church community, and other thought-provoking topics. This episode will leave you inspired and encouraged in your role as a husband and father. You'll definitely want to take notes! Host: Jerrad Lopes Guest: Aaron Smith is a husband and father who has always had a passion for sharing the gospel with the world. After getting married in 2007 to Jennifer Smith ( Unveiled Wife ), he and his wife became missionaries in Africa. Throughout the first four and a half years of marriage he and his wife experienced many struggles but found restoration through the grace of God, and out of those trials was birthed an online marriage ministry (HusbandRevolution.com (http://husbandrevolution.com/)). His heart now is directed towards encouraging husbands in their walks with Christ and their marriage. His hope is to see a revival in the hearts of husbands around the world. He believes that if husbands would humble themselves and turn toward God that the message of Christ would be advanced greater than ever before. Scripture References: * Ephesians 5:25-30 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+5%3A25-30&version=ESV)" Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.[a (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+5%3A25-30&version=ESV#fen-ESV-29315a)] 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

Join host Jerrad Lopes as he discusses the topic of sabbath, with A.J. Swoboda. In this episode, the two discuss questions like: * Are we still required to observe the sabbath? * What does a typical sabbath day look like? * Is sabbath different than leisure? * What's the point of the sabbath and why is God so serious about it. A. J. Swoboda (PhD, University of Birmingham) pastors Theophilus Church in urban Portland, Oregon. He is executive director of the Seminary Stewardship Alliance, a consortium of Christian higher education institutions dedicated to reconnecting Christians with the biblical call to care for God's creation. Swoboda also teaches biblical studies, theology, and church history at Portland Seminary and Fuller Theological Seminary, among others. He is an award-winning author or editor of nine books and speaks regularly at conferences, retreats, churches, and seminars. Visit his website and blog at www.ajswoboda.com. In this episode, A.J. and Jerrad discuss his new book, Subversive Sabbath (http://amzn.to/2BOf0LQ) "We live in a 24/7 culture of endless productivity, workaholism, distraction, burnout, and anxiety--a way of life to which we've sadly grown accustomed. This tired system of "life" ultimately destroys our souls, our bodies, our relationships, our society, and the rest of God's creation. The whole world grows exhausted because humanity has forgotten to enter into God's rest.This book pioneers a creative path to an alternative way of existing. Combining creative storytelling, pastoral sensitivity, practical insight, and relevant academic research, Subversive Sabbath offers a unique invitation to personal Sabbath-keeping that leads to fuller and more joyful lives. A. J. Swoboda demonstrates that Sabbath is both a spiritual discipline and a form of social justice, connects Sabbath-keeping to local communities, and explains how God may actually do more when we do less. He shows that the biblical practice of Sabbath-keeping is God's plan for the restoration and healing of all creation. The book includes a foreword by Matthew Sleeth." Amazon Book Description Past guest and Pastor of Bridgetown church in Portland Oregon, John Mark Comer (https://www.dadtired.com/blog/episode-73-god-has-a-name-feat-john-mark-comer) gave Subversive Sabbath this raving review: "Few things are as subversive to the hurry addiction of the modern world than the practice of Sabbath. And few things are as life-or-death important. A. J. has written his best book yet. His keen mind, quick wit, and deep soulfulness come through beautifully, page by captivating page. But more than anything, this is a book that is lived. My new go-to book on the Sabbath." Host: Jerrad Lopes Guest: A. J. Swoboda (PhD, University of Birmingham) pastors Theophilus Church in urban Portland, Oregon. He is executive director of the Seminary Stewardship Alliance, a consortium of Christian higher education institutions dedicated to reconnecting Christians with the biblical call to care for God's creation.

When something is unsettled in our heart, we do whatever we can to mask it. Work harder, drink more, yell louder, buy something new. Anything to cover up the noise of our soul. We are convinced that if we can make enough noise, the tugging of the Holy Spirit will go away. At the root of our noise-making-efforts is shame. We believe that when things get quiet, we will hear the sound of a sinful heart. And the truth is, you’re right. Your heart is sinful and wicked, deserving of punishment and shame. But there is good news; The Gospel & the fact that God has a reputation of engaging broken and messy people with grace. In this episode, join host Jerrad Lopes as he talks about entering into 2018 with a new mercy and what that practically looks like for us as husbands and dads.
