Men’s Event at Camp Dry Gulch USA


Success is an often-used word in today’s society, especially by men. Every man wants to be successful.

Successful men are those who have learned to develop and manage all three areas of life. But what happens if we were not taught what true success is or how to achieve it? What if we left home without the skills to develop a career, to stay happily married, or to make responsible decisions? Are we left to struggle through life unfulfilled?

Not hardly!

Growing Up Together

Have you ever asked your children, “When are you going to grow up?” Were you ever asked that question as a child?

Many times we want our children to do something, but we haven’t given them the full picture. It’s important to share what we use to measure growing up by (God’s Word) and what guide we use to achieve it (again, God’s Word).

Total Dependence on God

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Pride goes before a fall.”

It doesn’t take long for a bragger to wear out their welcome. Have you ever been around someone who, no matter what you say, is always trying to “one-up” you?

What Kind of Seed Are You Raising?

Up near my hometown of Ducktown, Tennessee, there was a plant that put out all kinds of harsh chemicals and because of this, the landscape was devastated.

The place looked like Mars, it was all red dirt. The trees and vegetation were gone in a certain area. The plant stopped, but the damage was done. It looked like a bad situation, but the locals began planting trees. My parents planted some as part of a high school project. It wasn’t fixed overnight, but those seeds took and trees grew.

Seeds don’t sprout up overnight, but they need to be planted. Did you know parenting is all about planting seeds? The seed of God’s Word, that is. It takes a lot of work, but if you are faithful you will see the result.
