Roundtable: Big Boys Don’t Cry

Even though Hollywood extols the virtues of the “sensitive man,” when it comes to real life, guys are generally expected to tough it out.

Roundtable panel (L to R): Travis, Sam, Austin and Jeremy

What’s his vision for today’s generation of God-built men? Listen in; it’s a big one.
