HITOP Life serves by Addressing the Essential Challenges Men Face with Truth and Mindset.” We do this by moving men away from surface-level conversations and encourage them into weekly discussions where they cultivate on Pursuing their Potential as men who:

  • Listen with Humility

  • Stand with Integrity

  • Know the Truth

  • Serve with Obedience

  • Cultivate with Prayer

Hello, my name is Chris Hewitt, Founder of HITOP Life. When I first wrote down the acronym HITOP in 2011, I knew something powerful would take place by encouraging men to live by these principles as Christ did. I found along the way that men need to hold each other accountable with encouragement. Accountability on its own is about ownership. But encouragement with accountability is about leading men to LOVE. LISTEN. LEAD.

You see, when men bring their ability to LOVE. LISTEN. LEAD into relationships, those we are in relationships with experience the powerful reality that they are being Valued (LOVE), Heard (LISTEN), and Empowered (LEAD). Imagine what that does to encourage and inspire your wife, children, co-workers, employees, siblings, parents, and friends.

This is why I knew we needed an effective method to capture what we are Accomplishing, how we overcome our Challenges, how we would document the Truth we are hearing, and what Steps we must take to Succeed in tackling our goals to Pursue our Potential. My dear friend and encouragement partner, Brian Rath and I knew these "ACTS" would give men a blueprint into how “Never to Journey (Journal) alone.



Why The Brother’s Keeper Journal


On this side of heaven, we are living our life, now. Are you ready? It’s game time. This is not a practice run, this is it, your amazing life. We have been given a gift from God and I don’t know about you, but I want to maximize this opportunity. I want to be all God has called me to be. At the end of the race, I do not want to have any regrets. I personally love life and all its adventure, and I choose to be happy and I live my life very intentional and proactive daily. However, you can’t live this way alone. We were designed to be in community. I have had the distinct privilege of 40 years of entrepreneurial living with a dozen businesses to my credit and 39 years of marriage. I have seen a lot of life. When I reflect on my greatest assets, relationships are second to none. Without quality men in my life, I don’t know where I would be today. Chris Hewitt is one of those men, a man of integrity and great wisdom. Honestly, for me, Chris’s greatest strength is encouragement. When I needed the truth, empathy and a non-biased opinion, Chris is who I would call first. Chris was a member of my Iron Sharpens Iron Mastermind and he gave me great insight and feedback on a regular basis as he did for all of the men, nationally and internationally. Chris developed amazing strategies and processes for me which have accelerated our growth immensely. Chris, along with his friend Brian Rath, have now taken those same skills and created a masterpiece in The Brothers Keeper Journal. I want to encourage each one of you to go through this blueprint of how to love unconditionally, listen intently, and lead a bold and triumphant life. Charles Duhigg in The Power of Habit talks at length about the value of good habits. I can’t imagine a better habit than listing what you are grateful for, recording obstacles you are facing, listening for that small still voice of God and then creating action steps to improve. There is value in wisdom, but the real value is received through execution. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get busy with The Brother’s Keeper Journal.

So what is the truth? Put literally "to hide nothing. To have constancy." The truth is, contrary to what Cain said in Genesis 4:9, we ARE our brother's keeper. God desires us to experience the fullness of a relationship founded on Truth. He desires us to meet frequently to encourage, inspire, and lift one another up.

Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
— Hebrews 10:25



HITOP Life addresses the essential challenges men face, by providing clarity, clear instructions, and corrective actions. When we humbly desire Truth we see more clearly, think sharper, find peace, and draw into God to ensure the deepest parts of your being (mindset) are aligned with Him.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind.
— Romans 12:2 (Nasb)
