79 | How to Raise Boys Who Are Good at Being Men with Pastor Jon Tyson
The Living Easy Podcast
"I want to pass on radical blessing, not radical dysfunction, to my children." This is one of the quotes that Pastor Jon Tyson from NYC (@jontyson) shared with me and all I could think was ‘amen!’ On this episode, we are talking all about raising boys to be GOOD at being godly men. And I truly have had few interviews that I felt like I learned so much from as I did in this one. Pastor Jon talks about the difficult burden that many children bear which is the unlived life of a parent and how that deeply affects them. He shares about how men ache to be good at being men, but often lack the tools and resources to do so. Don't forget to sign up for our FINAL LAUNCH of The Wife Project: sparrowsandlily.com/the-wife-project Pastor Jon offers his own experiences as a father of over 20 years and the biblical truths that helped him to build such a strong relationship with his son. He talks about the importance of a father showing vulnerability with their son and how to invite them into your life so that the bond isn’t broken when your children become teenagers. This is a PHENOMENAL interview and one that I strongly recommend that you listen to once and then again with your spouse.

QUOTES FROM EPISODE 61: “I think a lot of leaders are doing the best they can in increasingly complex situations, and none of us have the training for the drama we are dealing with.” “I was looking at the outcome of people in history who’s fruit I wanted to see God do again, and then I looked at their lifestyle and wanted to imitate that.” “I have sought to faithfully steward that very rare culture of revival that brought me to Christ.” “So often we rarely address the invisible evil, and we rely again on human technique and human systems to solve satanic problems.” “If you try and get the reward in public, you will have no power in the secret place.” “You pray because you love God, you want to be with Him, you want to know Him.” “I have three prayer movements every day – one of intimacy, one of interaction, one of intercession.” “Jesus has to be our leadership model.” “If you get all compassion and no conviction, you don’t have Christianity. If you get all conviction and no compassion, you don’t have Christianity. It’s both of those things together.” “No generation has personally witnessed this level of sin and brokenness firsthand.” “Build your leadership on prayer.” “Favor is when you reap what you didn’t sow, and if God trusts you, you will have His favor and there is no substitute for the favor of God on your leadership.” RESOURCES MENTIONED Beautiful Resistance by Jon Tyson A Resilient Life by Gordon McDonald This Episode’s Sponsor: No matter how many people you have on staff at your church, there’s only so much you can accomplish in a day, right?

This past Sunday, Pastor Jon preached about lawlessness — an utter disregard for God and his laws. Lawlessness manifests as rebellion and causes devastation, not fulfillment, keeping us from being apostles of love and instead dragging us into the world's toxic, selfish culture.
SIN AS REBELLION: This past Sunday, Pastor Jon continued our sin series, defining sin as rebellion against God and as sovereignty of the self. The same lies that Adam and Eve believed in Genesis 3 still haunt us today, but God pursues, covers, and restores us, just as He did for them. It is only through His divine mercy and Jesus's death and resurrection that we can be more than conquerors of sin.
