Over the month of July, we have posted several articles here at Manual in a series called, “Second Shift.” One of the hardest things—I think—in which for men to excel at as gospel-centered warriors, is coming home from work at 5pm-ish and being emotionally, spiritually, and physically present as husbands and dads. I talk with grown men often who struggle to engage their families during this time—what we have coined as the Second Shift, or hours after the normal 9-5pm grind.
We have hoped, through this series, to provide men with a few encouraging resources that might help prepare us to go home and lead well during this time. After all, this is the most important part of the day.
I hope this series encourages you, exalts King Jesus, and makes Satan tremble with fear.
Here are the articles posted in order:

This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.
Male & Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage can be purchased online at Christian Book, Christian Focus, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
