Too bad THE PROMISE team hunting/filming ministry was not there to film the guy. We heard a word from the Lord to start a ministry filming men who hunt & take the gospel to the tree-stand, ground-blind, and outdoors. Most of these men do not attend church & don’t want to be bashed with 10’X10′ KJV…they just need another man, who also loves hunting. We film, edit & produce a Outdoors Channel DVD to make their hunt the memory of a lifetime…then as the Holy Spirit leads…present Jesus to them. It is a great start and we are different than so many other Christian hunting teams. So we want these “released” husbands…we have our eye on the target of their souls. Good word…
Women, please release your men
It’s too easy to lose yourself in our society. Life gives you all kinds of reasons why you don’t measure up and need to change. Whatever your dreams are, they may feel impossible. You may have the urge to hunt and live adventures, but life squeezes you into a one-size-fits-all mold. And before you know it, you feel like a stranger in your own house.

I don’t have a man… but this is why I like praying for my brothers so much! I get excited when they are free to be wild men of God, love seeing them grow and be challenged as they fight alongside their brothers.
Good stuff, Seth!
What’s interesting is that in your annual getaway you have created a group where you can be both vulnerable and accountable.
It’s not a gender issue. “Release time” is a heart issue…and many are not willing to take that risk. Enjoy your trail time!
Love this. The idea of climbing the AT, skiing flatout down the lift line, or running the Flint Hills with my best friend brings joy. I’m all-girl and like a massage and pedicure like most women, but time to play in good company and to sort out stuff of life with others overflows the cup. I’ve finally learned that good company is the best way God illustrates what he whispers to me through his word. It’s easy to “be righteous” in isolation; authentic companionship illuminates the messes of our lives and the celebration-worthy moments of character. And we sure do need one another in doing life.
Have fun, Seth! If you haven’t already read Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods,” i encourage you to pick it up. It is about the AT & is a scream!
thank you for this. Some wives look at me as being flat out crazy as I regularly release my darling husband of 31 years to hike in Yosemite for a month, or on the AT, or bike on the Natchez Trace. Being IN the world God created helps restore our sense of authority and hierarchy. Our marriage has thrived because of his times alone with God in nature. Way to go!
I have a World Racer on Team Shefa…Charlotte. We love her!!
