street with arrows

Jake and Brett take the regular high low segment of the show and extend it for an entire episode. They discuss in more depth how the way of the heart is very real, up and down, and often unresolved. 

Key Points

  • Brett’s high: A recent trip to the Okanagan
  • As men we can be very intentional and strategic with work but we don’t apply those principles to family
  • Good families don’t happen accidentally 
  • Jake’s high: A recent eight day personal retreat
  • It’s like you can do five years of spiritual growth on one retreat
  • (A two part series on Jake’s eight day retreat will be released soon)
  • We need to stop having unhealthy competition with each other as men
  • If you are a doer, a good workout can help your prayer life
  • If you want to talk authentically about the way of the heart you have to talk about lows
  • Brett’s low: the cancer of comparison
  • Sometimes discretion is needed in sharing your heart
