In the film Cinderella Man, father and boxer Jim Braddock (Russell Crowe) has been on a losing streak until suddenly he’s not losing anymore. He’s winning.
“What are you fighting for?” a reporter asks.
“Milk," Jim replies.
Jim wasn’t fighting for medals or answering some distant call of the wild. Jim was fighting for milk for his kids.
"Milk" is all of a father's responsibilities, everything he must fight for.
But there's a problem...
A man might not literally pack the suitcase, but he's tempted to “check out.”
Can you blame him? When it comes to fatherhood, the game never ends—there’s no neutral ground on the field and no room on the bench.
But government programs and soccer coaches can’t replace you.
Good and evil are at war, and the battleground is a father’s heart.
I know what it's like to make mistakes—even to fall flat on my face in front of the people I love most. I have to push myself to grow every day.
But after working with fathers in business, prison ministry and chaplain ministry, serving as the pastoral associate of faith formation at a large Catholic parish, and raising my own crazy brood of three children with my beautiful wife, I’ve seen that no matter what you’re up against, there are basic, underlying principles that can help men do this right.MORE OF TYLER'S STORY

"The F4M Framework is inspiring and practical. In simple, jargon free terms, it cuts through the noise and distractions and gets us back to basics, training our attention on what really matters and helping us achieve our full potential as husbands, fathers, and men."
"The F4M framework provides practical tools to help integrate your faith, family, and work life. If you are searching for a simple but effective approach that will help you excel, bring order to your day, and peace into your soul, the F4M course is for you!"
"The F4M Framework “plunders the gold” of the social sciences and the discipline of organizational leadership while simultaneously affirming the inherent spirituality of fatherhood. As a leader in healthcare ministry and as a married father of four, I can say wholeheartedly that Blanski has synthesized the best of what dads need to know in order to flourish in our God-given vocation."
"Practical wisdom for men who are (or aspire to be) fathers. If you are looking for the nuts and bolts of fatherhood, this is a good place to start. The course challenged me to be more intentional in how I live out my vocations to marriage and holy orders."
"The F4M email course is a lesson in the rudiments of right living. For some it will be a lifeline in a storm, others a fresh breeze into a zombie routine."
"It's high-time someone reinvigorated not just godly manhood, but specifically Spirit-fueled fatherhood! Tyler has coalesced accessible skills and keen insights and the results can be profound if we humble ourselves and are willing to Fight for Milk!"

What makes the Fight for Milk Apostolate so special? It’s all about your transformation:
You’re serious about your vocation.
We are too.
After years of ministry, Tyler's learned one thing for sure: people get what they give.
The benefit of fundraising is that a program is free for the people it’s meant to serve. The downside is that these same people often end up considering the program to be worth, well, about $0.00.
It’s human nature. When there’s no skin in the game, there are less results.
If a man wants to re-engage his vocation to fatherhood, or if he believes in this apostolate’s mission, then his buy in does more than fundraising ever can.
Because he has a horse in this race, he’ll get more out of it. And that’s the whole point.
After joining, I recommend checking out the Fight for Milk Challenge course on your member page. You could spread each of the 7 short lessons out over the course of a week or go through them all at once.
If you don't have time right away to go through the course, you can definitely save it for later and simply enjoy the daily videos and weekly calls on their own.
The Four Action Steps of the F4M Framework is the foundation for the apostolate. It is designed to provide the path for implementing changes in your home, work, or community life.
The daily videos and live calls are F4M's beating heart. They provide community and address a wide variety of topics through the lens of the framework.
By touching base daily/weekly, F4M is designed to avoid the inspiration->burnout->forget-about-it cycle that often comes with a great book or podcast.
The daily videos are a "quick win" for you every business day—but only if it works with your schedule. This apostolate is on your terms.
If you miss a day, you can always open the email later for a boost or insight. Or never even open it. It's simply there for you if you want it.
The Fight for Milk Apostolate is bringing men together to find their fight, to study the craft of their vocation.
With a strong community centered on Christ, progress is unstoppable. Let's build together.

Regardless, we wish you the best of success!
You have an impact. What starts in your head spreads out to your family, your parish, your community. Why would you leave your legacy up to chance?
The Fight for Milk Apostolate is a resource that men of ALL AGES can use to fight back against something that ought not to be—a crisis of fatherhood.
The framework is designed to be applied to any situation at home, at work, or in the broader community. Because your vocation to fatherhood encompasses all of life's domains and your key relationships, you will find Fight for Milk's content to be applicable to everything from reigniting your relationship to your wife to negotiating a pay raise to having tough conversations with your adult children and more.
Yes! When you are a father your job doesn't boil down to product or a service but YOU, so personal and professional development is key. You can't give what you don't have.
Think of it this way: if a man feels God is calling him to be a missionary in France he would need not only a theological education, but also an education in the French language and culture. The Fight for Milk Apostolate is not only an education in the theology but in the language and culture of fatherhood—because fatherhood is your calling.
Don’t get me wrong, it would be life-changing to study the theology of dadness. But, because a father has “divided interests” (1 Cor. 7:32), F4M is more practical and hands-on.
Knowing what’s at stake—God’s reputation!—it’s time to zoom in and study the craft, “the French of fatherhood.”
We'll send you the ultimate pocket guide to becoming a better communicator at work and home...and you'll stay in the loop!
