CVM logo 200pxThe following are articles from the Christian Vision for Men blog. Interesting, insightful and inspiring - a worthwhile read!

  • I’m a man?
    Yes, and here it is! Stiff upper lip. I’m a man. Strong. I’m a man. Burn stuff and take hipster photos of mountains. I’m a man. Depressed. I’m a man? Question every decision I make. I’m a man? Pretty sure I’m no good. I’m a man? You know something is wrong when you question your […]
  • Men and Mental Health – Let’s Talk (Pt 2/2)
    I’m assuming you’ve clicked on to this second blog as you’ve read my first one entitled “Men and Mental Health – Let’s Talk”. If you have not read that I would recommend you do so before progressing any further! Referring back to the ‘Masculinity Report’ carried out by the wonderfully named, “Campaign Against Living Miserably” […]
  • ME? Mental Health Condition? You must be joking!
    I have always been an optimist. As a young man starting out in the Financial Services profession in 1990, I relished and devoured numerous books and tapes on Personal Development and Positive Mental Attitude. Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracey and Dale Carnegie were just some of the individuals who greatly influenced my life, forming […]
  • Wallow
    It is really easy to wallow, and I don’t just mean in a nice, deep, hot bath with a Lush bath bomb (other brands are available, but Lush are definitely best), a decent pint and a book. I mean in anything. I wonder what immediately sprang to mind when you read the word ‘wallow’? For […]
  • Love
    Do we ever stop and think? Put ourselves in the shoes of another? That’s what we’re told we should be doing, after all shouldn’t we be aware of just what it means to be aware of mental illness? My path is a familiar one – I met a bloke who was broken, down, lost, desperate […]
  • Men and Mental Health – Let’s Talk (Pt 1/2)
    As I write some reflections about “Men and Mental Health”, please note that I have added the caveat of “Let’s Talk”. It’s vitally important that the title is read in its entirety. Now before you get stuck in to the ‘meaty stuff’ about a really complex subject, I feel that I must add the disclaimer […]
  • Mental Health Awareness Week 2018
    Maybe you saw this in the news or even went and had a look for yourself, but earlier this year ITV HQ supported a charity called CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) by having an art installation on their buildings roof. The installation was the work of sculptor Mark Jenkins and featured 84 full size male […]
  • Boys2Men
    For so many of our young people the journey through teenage years is increasingly difficult and many find themselves simply drifting into adult hood and struggling to find their place as a disciple of Jesus in a secular society. There are so few good role models for young men to look up to. What the […]
  • Ask for help
    It was fairly early on in my Royal Naval career, my first complement job as a Petty Officer, Weapons Engineer. I was on a type 42 Destroyer, and I was the maintainer for the main computer system that drove the Weapons system and the Operations Room. It was 1983 and we were deployed down to […]
  • Top Ten Memory Verses (Pt 10/10)
    01. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 We made it, finally at the end of my (unofficial) top ten bible memory verses. Thank you for journeying with me on this, I hope it hasn’t been too bad, and who knows, you might […]
