Reading "Wisdom Meets Passion" With My Teen Boys

I've been a big fan of Dan Miller for over 10 years, and am excited about the release of his newest book, Wisdom Meets Passion. Co-written with his son, Jared Angaza, Wisdom Meets Passion will help you discover how to make a difference - and a living - from pursuing your passion.

Dan and Jared held a special fundraiser on Indiegogo to buy advance hard copies of the book.

I bought four autographed hardback copies - one for me and each of my boys - and received four Ubuntu medallion necklaces made by Jared's clothing line, Keza.

I gave the boys the Wisdom Meets Passion books this morning at our McOffice for our weekly Man to Man time, where we talk about life, the universe, and everything.

Reading Wisdom Meets Passion by Dan Miller & Jared Angaza

During Man to Man time, we eat breakfast - usually alternating between McDonalds and Subway. Then we each read a section from USA Today find at least one story that interests us enough to share with the others. We identify biblical and business principles that we've observed in those stories and discuss those for a while. Then we usually close with the reading from the book of Proverbs and prayer.

For the next few weeks, we'll also read a chapter of Wisdom Meets Passion on our own, then discuss what we've learned at our Man to Man time.

Through these weekly times with my boys, it is my prayer that I can help them understand their gifts and talents, identify their passions and dreams, and live out their true calling.

I encourage you to get your own copy of Wisdom Meets Passion, and extra copies to give out to others.

If you want to check out some of the special deals Dan has, including the Ubuntu medallion necklaces that we got, you'll find them at Dan's Wisdom Meets Passion website. And of course, you can also buy Wisdom Meets Passion on Amazon.

And if you're questioning your calling, or trying to figure out the work you are meant to do, ask me about my career and life coaching (which I can do over the phone and via email or Skype), which is based on Dan Miller's Wisdom Meets Passion and 48 Days to the Work You Love concepts.

Common ground. I like it.

Raun, this Man to Man time is one of the best things I've done as a father.  I started doing it when my oldest turned 13.  After one year of doing it one-on-one, I invited my other two sons to join us.  I'm going to change it up a bit in the next few months, and start inviting special guests to join us for breakfast.  My oldest son works for a wholesale greenhouse, so I want to invite his boss to come one week and talk about his business. I have other Christian business men and leaders in mind also, to ask them to talk about their life, how they chose their career, what money means to them (and what money lessons they'd like to share with us), ask about their relationship with the Lord, etc.

In addition to the three boys, we also have two girls who are younger - ages 6 & 10. I take them out on special dates too from time to time, but need to also think of an equivalent type of thing to do with them as they get older.

That sounds like an awesome way to get some real facetime with your boys.  I may have to steal that idea... :)
