Welcome

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 very reason, I started this blog back in January 2019 to explain why men (and women for that matter!) need more authentic, genuine friendships.

I began calling these types of friendships a “God Buddy” over 15 years ago because I saw the need for men to have a small number of deeper, more authentic relationships instead of the shallow acquaintances and social media connections so many have these days. (I actually had the real need for deeper friendships myself. Read about it here).

I now believe that all men need a “GB” (that’s short for “God Buddy”) in order to enjoy biblical manhood and friendship as those were designed by our Creator. Without deep friendships, men become isolated, which has a negative impact on our health and our relationships.

Through my weekly posts, I make the case for God Buddies and provide some very practical advice on developing intimate, accountable relationships with a small group of men who share the common goal of becoming more like Christ.

My posts also include words of encouragement and tips on how to care for yourself and how to care for 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 eventually write the book that’s been swirling around in my brain for many years. Your contributions via the comment section and suggestions for related content will also help me along the way.
