John Eldredge is the bestselling author of many books, including the NY Times bestseller Wild at Heart. He is also president of Wild at Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God and recover their own hearts in God’s love. Join Greg Surratt for this rich conversation with John as they talk about the 20th anniversary of Wild at Heart’s publication, the unique challenges that men face in our culture, and ways that churches can best serve the men in their congregations. It’s an especially important conversation as we enter the second year of the pandemic, as men face deeper temptations of suicide, anxiety, and depression. At the heart of the masculine journey is a call to courage – one as urgent for boys as it is for men. John’s work is an invitation to embrace that call and find that as men step into it, they’ll find themselves drawing near to the heart of God.

Oh heyyyyy touchy subject. Nice to meet you. I’d like you to meet John Eldredge. He is going to tackle this subject with precision and honor.

Oh. And yes... Heather is back on the podcast too. You're Welcome.

The Masculine Heart Through a Pandemic: With John Eldredge
You Need Therapy
This week Kat (@kat.defatta) has fellow therapist, author, and exceptional human John Eldredge on the show. John wrote the amazing book, Wild at Heart which is a BEAUTIFUL invitation for men to heal from some of the wounds of generalized "masculinity." In this conversation John and Kat talk about the differences men and woman have experienced as they have both attempted to survive the pandemic. John agues that "though a woman’s need for social connection and relationship is often considered greater than their male counterpart’s, the loss of traditional male-to-male support systems due to the pandemic is playing a major role in the loss of heart and mental health in men today." Check out this conversation to hear the inside scoop on how men are really doing right now and how we can all support each other through this time.

God has designed a path for helping men know what it means to be a man made in God's image. Led by men who have gone before us, sons and younger men follow in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. In this podcast, John Eldredge author of, Fathered By God, discusses a framework for understanding how boys become men. In life's struggles, pains, joys, and successes God initiates boys into adulthood through the stages transitioning from "Beloved Son" to "Adventure" to "Warrior" to "Lover" to "King" to "Sage."

Last year John Eldredge wrote an important book called Get Your Life Back. In today’s episode, John and I talk about my favorite parts of his book. In short, we talk about simple everyday practices that will help you get your life back. Why is this important? Because the pace of modern American life—even in the midst of Covid—often borders on madness. It doesn’t feel like madness for many of us because we’ve lived life at this pace for so long. The pace feels normal. But the human heart was not designed to operate at 5,000 rpm’s all the time; it wasn’t designed to carry the weight that most of us carry.
If your soul is longing for more adventure, this episode is for you. Join host Jerrad Lopes as he interviews best-selling author, John Eldredge (Wild At Heart). The two discuss what stops Christian dads from stepping into the adventure God has for them, and how we can raise kids who are resilient.
