Every man has a kingdom. Not every king rules well. You can.
Like a living piece in life’s checker game, you are moving across the board toward your time of greatest authority and impact. But what kind of king will you be?
In King Me, Michael Thompson guides you through the six stages of the masculine journey in order to release you forward, oriented and equipped. Continuing beyond where The Heart of a Warrior left off, Michael kindly and wisely invites you to uncover your story, see the wounds of your past, and be initiated into the glory in your heart. Through healing encounters and validating experiences with God, you can learn to wield love as your greatest Kingdom weapon and provide a kingdom where hearts are free.
You are invited to become a man after God’s own heart. You are always one move away from becoming more and advancing goodness, or becoming less and compromising your kingdom.
It’s your move.
Extremely helpful and hopeful.
King Me is a timely, provocative, and important book for men of all ages. Michael Thompson gently and effectively guides the reader through a reflective process, helping them to understand who they are, and where they are, in God's kingdom. Throughout, he powerfully presents God's love for each and every man, inviting them into God's mission.
A methodical approach to the heart of men and resounding call to leading well
Michael's book brings forth excellent questions that men can ask of themselves about their own story in the masculine journey. Questions are one of the best diagnostic ways to explore and dig deeper to root issues and matters of the heart. Permission is not only granted but encouraged to discuss one's story. I hope many men will have the courage to discuss what is suggested in this book. As a woman, I gained a better understanding of the types of questions that boys and men ask.
This is one of the best books I have read in along time.
Until reading this book I used to think all my thoughts came from me.
Michael has written a rich, practical and easy to read book to help anyone, man or woman become better. He and his team at Zoweh are the real deal. I heartily recommend King Me.
A great picture into the masculine journey
King Me has been a refreshing dive into the depths of the masculine journey. The author takes you through each stage of the masculine journey, where things may go off the rails, but then the hope in healing made available at each stage through the finished works of Jesus. The stories told, both personal and of others in his circles, help to give context and even make the content more relatable. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone, even to wives to help give them a good view into the hearts of their husband and even sons.
An absolute must read!
I cannot recommend this book more for everyone, men and women. Regardless of where you are in your faith, this book is a must. This is the third book from this author I have read and like the first 2, this book is absolutely changing my life for the better.
Answering Critical Questions I Had
I couldn't put this book down! As a man in my 40s, beginning to think about my legacy and loving those around me with intentionality and purpose, Michael Thompson's book King Me does a fantastic job on both fronts. This book led me deeper into the heart to excavate the wounds of my life and helped me find a path to answers from God for the critical questions in my heart! I loved how it took me through the stages of development as a man. I had questions for each stage, and through story and sound Biblical teaching, I was able to look at my stages, find healing and a path to more life.
Truly a call to action for Christian masculinity to be restored in our culture
In many years of military and Christian service with men, I have always seemed to be challenged in communicating the message of Christ to the Brotherhood. In his first book, Michael Thompson set standards in the masculine journey by unpacking two significant concepts. He mentions a man must be oriented in his walk with the Lord. I strongly encourage each man to obtain "Heart of a Warrior" to discover "being oriented". Also in this book a man will understand being settled - "Nothing to Hide, Nothing to Fear, Nothing to Prove"! This was the start! But the question begs, where does a man turn to chart the course for this masculine journey. We all desire to finish strong, but how does that happen? Enter "King Me", Michael's most recent best selling release. We have the building blocks of Christian manhood...now we need the roadmap for life that charts a man's life in fulfilling significance. In "King Me", the Christian man is guided through the six stages of the masculine journey. Each stage along the way guides the Christian man in handling his successes, his losses, his wounds and his relationships. As the name implies, the ultimate role in the Kingdom of God is the man crossing the "board of life" and decrying "KING ME"! Isn't that where we all desire to be? Enjoy the guidance, the stories and the admonition Michael shares in this book. Along the way, the concept of elder-sage will become a prominent role engaged by select Christian men on alert to provide guidance for men in their quest to claim..."King Me!" Do not miss this incredible literary treasure in molding the heart and life of the Christian man.
Thought this was a good reminder of many important truths and then a great focus on this critical "king" stage of the masculine journey. "Kings" will have an impact on a kingdom (it may be big or it may be small). Their potential for impacting generations makes this an important read. Very well written.
Elder-sages, kings and warriors need each other!
"King Me" is a great read for men of all ages and an absolute must read for every "Baby Boomer". Men entering their autumn years, looking to the future and asking, what's next? Men determined to finish strong and leave a legacy pleasing to God. In chapter ten of "King Me", these words speak truth to the elder heart: "Elder-Sage is a time when a man's kingdom may be getting smaller, but his influence is getting larger. He is ready to bring the weight of his character & experience to younger men."
Every once in a while…
A book will come along that seems to be written just for you. If your heart is yearning for more…then clear your calendar for a weekend, grab a pen and go find a mountain top. Take your time with this book and try to spend as much time listening as you do reading. Your Heavenly Father will come for you…I know he will. More love, more life, more freedom…it’s your move.
Your Masculine Journey
Third book from this author, and it is a must read for men! God will lead us on a journey if we let Him. This book will help you find your way!
