Raising Boys to be Godly Men {The Warrior Weekend Giveaway}

Sadly, many boys are not being taught what it means to be a man in God’s eyes. I’m not talking about a guy who can fight off Grizzly bears with his bare hands, throw the football the farthest, lift the most weight, have the biggest house, or drive the fastest car. I am talking about boys growing up and understanding that God has created them to love Him and love the world like Jesus.

The Warrior Weekend is a resource to help dads raise boys to be Godly men. Written as a devotional, it is full of biblical wisdom specific to boys, applicable stories of brave men, and adventurous activity ideas or a weekend away. The Warrior Weekend is a great resource for helping dads and sons explore God’s Word and God’s world together.

The Warrior Weekend (Helping Dads Raise Boys to Be Godly Men) ~www.thebettermom.com

My husband wrote The Warrior Weekend because we want our sons to grow up clearly understanding that God has wired them different than girls – a lot different! This is not by accident, but by design. God has created boys to grow up and be Godly men for His purposes and plans for the world.

During The Warrior Weekend, there will be three lessons you will explore and complete together.

Each lesson consists of the following components:

Warrior Account: Each lesson will have a real life account of a warrior’s story in history. These are different men who have done extraordinary things. These accounts are meant to illustrate a biblical principle or truth outlined in that particular lesson.

Warrior Activity: Each lesson will have an activity that you and your son will complete together. These activities are meant to be adventurous and fun. They are also meant to illustrate the main theme of each lesson.

Warrior Application: After reading the warrior account and completing the warrior activity, you and your son will sit down together and discuss the application. This will be a chance to discuss what God’s Word says about how boys are created for God’s purposes.

Our prayer is that this resource and weekend will be instrumental in helping your son(s) continue learning what it means to grow up and be Godly men! The Warrior Weekend is a great resource for you and your son(s) or it can be used in a group. Feel free to invite more dads and their sons!

    We really enjoyed the dig and are getting started with the second one. I think that this book sounds wonderful as well.

  • Dawn

    Would love this as a Father’s Day gift!

  • Karen

    Wow! What a great resource for dads. Perfect timing with Father’s Day coming up!

  • Katie Haney

    This book would be so valuable not only for my husband to read, and to go through with our son, but for me too. Growing up, I had a godly strong example of a man in my Dad, and I am so blessed to have married a strong, godly man who persevered in his pursuit of godliness in spite of not having good examples to follow. Being able to raise our son to know who God is and know what it is to be a true man is one of our main goals as parents.

  • Megan H.

    My husband wants to model what it means to be a Godly father, even when the culture doesn’t hold fathers in high esteem. This book would be a great resource that he can use to grow closer to our sons, and show them what it means to be a Godly man.

  • Sunnie

    I would love to have this for my next baby, hes going to be a boy~!

  • http://www.embracinggrace.org/ Amanda@EmbracingGrace

  • Amy Barno

    Sounds like a great time for daddy/ son bonding over the principles of Godliness!

  • MWP

    As the mama of 4 boys, this sounds like an awesome resource!! We’ve really been looking for ways to be more intentional in discipling them lately, and this looks like it’d be a great step.

  • Patty

    Is this for any particular age(s)? It looks great!!

  • Jen

    My son just turned 12 and my husband and I both look for both teachable moments and special occasions to teach and reinforce values. Sounds like a great resource.

  • Dawn Gray

    What is the age range for this? My son is 6 and I would love for him and daddy to have some special times, just the 2 of them.

  • Ginger

    We have three sons. Two at home they are 10 and 17 and my oldest just turned 19, he just graduated high school, and arrived at Parris Island last night to become a US Marine. I think this book would be a great resource for my husband to use with our younger boys. Thank you for writing it.

  • Emily

    I am so glad there are books still be publishing about what it REALLY means to be a man! I have 2 toddler boys and my husband and I both need a book like this and the grace of God to help us raise our children from the beginning to be strong, Godly men!

  • Abigail

    What an incredible book. Looking forward to daddy son weekend! I know they both will be changed!

  • Shayna Dimmick

    My husband is trying to lead our family in a way that’s pleasing to God, and who couldn’t use some encouragement?? He loved the Wild at Heart series for himself, and now we have a son who will need to hear these things, too.

  • Ann Louise Jambor

    This looks fantastic! I have three boys and it can be a struggle to find things like this specific for boys/men. Thanks!!

  • Tiffany Desgroseilliers

    This sounds amazing! I would love for our boys and my hubby to have this book!

  • Christie Harris Yourdon

    I totally agree that our boys are growing up in a culture that is stearing them away from being a Godly man and making choices that are honoring to Him. The best way for a boy to learn the Truth is by watching his own dad serving the Lord. What a wonderful tool for dads to use to lead and disciple their sons to serve and honor our Savior! I love books like “The Warrior Weekend” that help dads use the time with their sons more effectively to teach and train.

  • Sharon Linder

    I agree and am thankful for my Dad being a Godly man. I would like to win a copy for my Brother who is trying to raise his stepson to be a Godly man

  • Kelly

    We are always looking for ways to help our boys become Christian men!

  • Megan Barr

    We want to start our boys out on the right track… In fact, our oldest son’s name is Ryder, which means “Mounted Warrior.” He’s four, but he knows what his name represents, and he takes it very seriously. So we want to channel his enthusiasm for protecting people, and turn it into “loving people” too.

  • Sally F

    I think this will guide myself and my husband in practical ways to teach our son to become a Christian man.
    Thank you!

  • Sharon

    I would love for my husband and our two sons to go through this study together. I know my husband’s heart is to train them to be godly men, but having a tool at hand helps with the planning of purposeful training.

  • Amy

    Sounds like a good resource to help us raise a Godly man as well as encouraging guy-time together. Thanks.

  • Mitzi O

    Love the concept of this book!

  • April

    This book would be great for my boys. They are 14 and 17. I am a single mom and although they are blessed with men in their family and life through school, sports, and friends their dad isn’t a part of their lives and it is hard being a mom and dad sometimes. They have an amazing faith and are great young men, but I want to order this for them because I am always thankful for positive male influence for them in any form it comes in.

  • Daisy

    This would be a great thing for my son and husband to start at a young age and could grow up with him!

  • Ayla

    What a wonderful resource. My husband would absolutely love this to go through with our son. He did not have a great relationship with his Dad and struggles at times to do things differently with our son. I am thankful for godly resources that help bridge the gap between what we learned growing up and what God wants us to learn about the various roles He has called us to. Blessings!
