Raising Real Men~A Timberdoodle Review

If you have read my blog for any length of time you know that Larry and I have two wonderful boys! I will say that boys are familiar and comfortable for me having grown up with four younger brothers! Raising boys is fun and often a great big adventure!

Kaden our youngest is always jumping off one piece of furniture or another and is always on the go, seeming to go from one activity to another before I can catch my breath! Justin our oldest is a thinker and planner always wanting to learn new things and glean as much information as possible! They both love to wrestle and be loud and just have fun! Some days in our house are quite challenging. Between homeschooling and home keeping, keeping up with the boys and making sure we are raising boys to be Godly men can overwhelming and intimidating at times!

After reading Raising Real Men by Hal and Melanie Young, I have learned a few things about our role as parents and the direction we need to take to raise our boys to serve God.

The Young’s are raising six boys and two girls and have drawn from their own parenting experiences and put them into this wonderful book!

Here is a look at some of the topics covered in the part one of the book:

  • Boys Need Heroes
  • What does the Bible Say about Heroes
  • Visual Media
  • Heroes From History
  • Fictional Characters
  • A Biblical View of Adventure and Recklessness
  • Adventure in the Cause of Christ
  • When to Comfort, When to Encourage
  • Responsibility, Then Freedom
  • Learning to Stand
  • What the Bible Says About Leadership
  • Developing The Next Generation’s Leaders
  • The Biblical View of Competition
  • Making Competition a Good Part Of Our Sons’ Loves

This is just a small part of what is covered throughout this book.

Here are a few quotes from the book that really stuck with me:

All the time, it seems, mothers are calling concerned that their little boys are hyperactive. Doesn’t he need to be on medication? Generally, the answer is no, there is no treatment for being a little boy. With time, he will become a perfectly normal teenager.

Boys – just like little girls – area a picture of the image of God, tragically marred by sin. Our focus must be on leading our sons into godly manhood, not just trying to manage them to make our lives convenient and more pleasant.

This is truly  a wonderful resource,  full of practical, Godly advice written in a very conversational tone. When reading it you get the feeling you are sitting and having a conversation with the Young’s. It is a fun yet serious and engaging read full of encouragement to those wanting to raise Godly men!

There are not many books that I keep after I read them, Raising Real Men is a book that will stay on my bookshelf so I can refer to it again and again  as we raise our boys!

Timberdoodle has other Biblical parenting books that may interest you.
