Catherine Ewing –
Full of biblically-sound, reality-based wisdom, reading (or listening to) this book is like having a conversation with older friends who have already navigated this season of parenting and successfully made it to the other side. (And if you’ve ever had the opportunity to meet their family in person, you know this is true!) There have been many chapters that I’ve had “aha!” moments in, and even shared with my kids. The one that comes to mind is learning about young men of generations past who bore great responsibilities at young ages (such as being the US ambassador to France at age 14!). In this chapter, Hal and Melanie challenge us to not accept the status quo for our sons. They are capable of far more than our current society would expect of them. As a single mother, I’m so grateful to have this resource to help guide me in raising my son to be a godly, capable man.
I was given both the print book and audio book and I love them. There are seasons of my life when I don’t have time to read, so I appreciate having the audio format to listen to while doing other things.
