Today more than at any other time, men need better friendships. In fact, I believe every guy needs a God Buddy!

Rich and his original “GB”, Bill Johnson

For this reason, I started this blog to explain why men (and women for that matter!) need more authentic, genuine friendships. I began calling these type of friendships a “God Buddy” over 10 years ago because I saw the need (and had the need myself) for a small number of deeper, more authentic relationships over the very shallow acquaintances and connections so many of us have these days.

Through my weekly blog posts, I hope to provide you with some very practical ways to develop a God Buddy relationship with a small group of guys. I will also give you words of encouragement to take the risk to find a “GB” (that’s short for “God Buddy”) so that you can enjoy life as it was designed by our Creator God. 

Future posts will also include words of encouragement for you to take the risk to find a God Buddy and tips on how to care for yourself and those within your circle of influence: your spouse, children, extended family, friends, and yes, even your own GBs!

My goal is to continue to develop the topic of God Buddies and finally write the book that’s been swirling around in my brain for many years. Your contributions via the comment section and suggestions for related or new content will also help me along the way.

This comment is not intended to detract from what you are saying and I agree fully we need a good friend. My comment is to let people know that have a God buddy. Watching TBN, they took a survey of how many had “issues”,i.e. depression, addiction, etc. and 50% or more did and I don’t think many in church understand that we have this treasure in earthen jars 2 Cor. 4:7.

HE IS WITH EVERYONE. Luke 17:21 says the Kingdom of God is in our midst. It is a realm or dimension most of us cannot see.
Some preach Jesus will appear in the sky with 10,000 angels, maybe so, but an acquaintance addicted to cocaine said God if you’re real help me. He saw a flash and heard NEVER WILL I LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU Heb. 13:5.
*a card dealer in Vegas filled the tub and said God if you’re real baptize me, she is now a minister.
*a prisoner addicted to cocaine said you have something special when I prayed – told him it wasn’t me it was Jesus.
*another time a man cried when I told him the verses about God’s Love for us – google God’s Love.
*I said God help me stop drinking, I didn’t make the beer so bitter I couldn’t stand the taste in one night.
*I didn’t cause depression to leave in minutes or have a veteran with PTSD say he saw Jesus when I prayed. At a veterans retreat in Colorado veterans with PTSD see Jesus 100% of the time !
*I didn’t heal myself of several health issues, including a heart issue. check you tube videos of healing in the name of Jesus. Watch: 26 miracles RW Shambach, Randy Clark, Todd White, Reinhardt Bohnke, Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin, Mel Bond, Robbie Dawkins and others.
*I didn’t make myself cry from feeling God’s Love or cause a young woman to cry so hard her friend said are you ok.
*I didn’t cause NETWORK OF PRISON MINISTRIES to appear in bold on my laptop when I typed the letter V – I volunteer a little for our local prisoner release program and share God’s testimony, Videos of Healing, and other papers.
*I didn’t give myself the message: TELL ABOUT MY LOVE.
It’s in a book on Amazon and all proceeds go to charity: SEEK ME and you will find ME Jer. 29:13 ; I did and I DID.

    Thanks for weighing in Ron. I appreciate that you read the post and agree that God is certainly a God Buddy for all of us if we just enter into a relationship with him. I hope you enjoy reading the other posts on the website. God bless you!
