Being a father of boys is a privilege and a joy, but it’s also challenging. We know that fathers are an important influence on their sons, and we want to have a positive impact on their lives. But we wonder exactly how we can help them grow to be the men God is calling them to be.
Rob Green, a pastor and father of boys, starts by acknowledging that dads are completely dependent on God to help their boys grow into godly men. Then he goes on to share practical suggestions for guiding your son, while avoiding the pitfall of assuming your efforts could ever produce a perfect child. This minibook will encourage you to strengthen your relationship with Jesus, help you live according to his Word, and give you concrete advice on how to faithfully raise up your boys to love God and others.
