For the month of June, I wanted to publish posts to encourage and lift our brothers in Christ. Too often today, Man is put down, found inadequate, ridiculed, and encouraged to be soft and feminine when he was created to be gentle but tough. Women look to this modern man and scoff at the idea of submission, and boys look to this man with confusion as they try to suppress their natural, God given abilities to lead with Strength and offer Hope to those who will look up to them.
But not all Men fall to modern constructions. Some keep their focus on God and do not get bogged down in the muck or lose sight of who they were created to be. Rich Maffeo, author, US Navy nurse, father, husband, and Catholic, is one such Man. This is what he wrote for Single Mom Smiling to encourage Men and keep them focused on what is truly important. I think it’s also Good for any women interested in dating to understand so they don’t lower standards but instead wait and lift through submission to one who is worthy of submission.
Please welcome Rich Maffeo, an insporational guest to Single Mom Smiling.
