Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17 KJV

"If God is thy father, man is thy brother." – Lamartine

“Bro-nation” A nation of brothers

This post is dedicated to my online collection of brothers that I call my bronation. (I like making up words, you can ask my wife).

Since I have entered the blogasphere, I have been extremely blessed to get to know these men. Some are pastors (you should listen to their sermons online), some are fathers, and some are teachers. All are funny, creative and alive for Christ…they are warrior poets.

I try to read their blogs everyday and I’m never disappointed when I do. They share their hearts, their talents, their dreams and just how Father God is moving them closer to the image of His son Jesus. What I read on their sites are stories of real men, not perfect,, but trying to love their God, their families and the communities they live in. I have never met them personally (I hope to some day) but I can honesty say they have enriched my life.

So, I encourage you to visit their sites and allow the story of their lives to encourage and challenge you like they do me.

Thank you Bronation!

I am so honored to be on this list and more than that, I'm honored to know you. You bare your heart so openly and honestly that you lend others the courage to do the same. You are a blessing and I sincerely pray that the blessings of heaven and His presence overtake you and overwhelm you in this next season of your lfie beyond anything you've experienced before in Jesus' name!

Thank you, Jay.
