Five Steps to Growing Up
YOU’RE THE MAN. NOW ACT LIKE IT. Thirteen million single mothers. A culture drowning in passivity. Where have all the men gone? Most men spend their entire lives learning what it means to be a man. There are plenty of role models available, from our own fathers to coaches to movie stars – but not all of them set a Godly example. Even when they have the best intentions, most men lead by example and expect their sons to understand what manhood is without ever receiving intentional training on the subject. As a result, most bear the scars of the mistakes made along the way in trying to prove their manhood to themselves and others. Man up is an intentional look at the facets of a fully-engaged, powerful, passionate and functional man using Biblical wisdom and the experience of dozens of mature men, set into a five step process that is easy enough for a ten-year-old boy (and his father) to memorize and understand. Once learned, this study will give every young man a clear gauge of manhood against which he can measure himself, thus freeing him from ever wondering what he must do to prove that he has what it takes. In picking this book up to share with their sons, adults will learn more about the mantle of manhood, too, and will be challenged to shun passivity and take up the headship that is their duty, one sadly that is often left to the woman of the house. It is intended also to help single mothers to teach their sons about manhood in the absence of an engaged father figure. The study will benefit young women as well, many of whom go into their college years with no healthy idea of what a real man looks like – and end up making terrible dating and marriage choices because of it.
