great stuff from All Pro Dad…
One of the best definitions of character we’ve ever heard goes something like this: “Character is what you do when no one else is looking.”
This is one reason golf is such a great life-lesson game. It’s the only professional sport where the participants call penalties on themselves.
But men of integrity value what is honest, true, noble, trustworthy, kind, and right ahead of personal gain. Once integrated into our foundational operating system, integrity ceases to be optional or “add-on”, but instead becomes a way of life.
Here are some suggestions that will help once we decide to make integrity a foundational value:

from the good folks at Man in the Mirror Ministries…
No Man Left Behind is being used by more and more churches that want to make men’s discipleship a priority, and want a process to follow. We’ll look at three different perspectives on No Man Left Behind over the next three Briefings: as a model, a method and a mindset.
- A Model — A pattern to follow that results in building something that looks like the picture.
- A Method — How do you make it happen? The Create-Capture-Sustain process gives you a method for helping men find and follow Christ.
- A Mindset — The all-inclusive mindset means we break out of conventional “men’s ministry” thinking, and instead begin to think about how we can reach EVERY man that interacts with our church in any way.

I’ve been away at Annual Conference this week and so haven’t (on purpose) posted anything. Just got back and have found some encouraging and informative things in my in-box related to fatherhood. Therefore, since tomorrow is the big day… here are some things that I think will bless you as you reflect on fatherhood. Don’t forget to thank your dad and tell him you love him!
Happy Father’s Day,

from the good folks at Halftime…
I never dreamed I would be a Denver Broncos fan. But now I find myself trying to watch every game they play. Of course, the truth is, I’m a Tim Tebow fan. What’s not to like about Tebow? (It also doesn’t hurt that they have former Georgia great, Knowshon Moreno.)
Here are a couple of things that have recently come to my inbox on the subject Tebow and leadership. They are definitely worth watching and reading, especially if you want to pass on some important leadership principles to young men and women in your spheres of influence.
The first is from Tim Elmore at his website, Growing Leaders.
Here’s a post at Brian Dodd’s great blog on 14 Leadership Lessons Young Leaders Can Learn from Tim Tebow. Good stuff!
