Redefining Manhood Part 2: God's Autograph

In my last post on Redefining Manhood I talked about how God has signed unique characteristics, or autographs, onto the hearts of men. Every man is unique from every other but I have found three spiritual autographs that God has inscribed on the hearts of men. By identifying and talking about these […]
