Canaan’s Rest represents a quiet place “set apart” for the purpose of hearing God's voice, growing in intimacy with the Lord, and being renewed in soul and spirit.

Wildman Journey


“Wildman” describes a man who is passionate about following Jesus and becoming a soulful man.  He knows he must descend from his head into his heart, getting in touch with his deepest desires and longings.  He takes seriously the warning of Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”  A Wildman lives a soulful life, knowing that transformation begins from the inside out.

John the Baptist is our model for being a Wildman.  He was a voice crying in the wilderness.  John was passionate, surrendered, prophetic, and countercultural.  This blog site is committed to helping men find affirmation for their masculine souls in today’s “sexual wilderness” with its “gender wars” and cries of “toxic masculinity.”

Only Jesus can heal, restore, and affirm men in their masculinity.  There is a crisis in masculinity within our culture.  The future of our nation depends upon the healing of the masculine soul.
