A descriptive list of life skills to begin mastering from an early age, in preparation for manhood. By Todd Ellison (Renee’s husband).
Historically, there was no such thing as a developmental stage in a boy’s life called adolescence. Scripturally, a boy turned into a man at age 12, and from then onward progressively assumed a man’s responsibilities. Adolescence is a humanist idea that entered history some 50 years ago.
The focus of this talk is preparing your sons to be men, as early as scripture indicates they can be! If you undertake this project of seriously preparing your sons to mature quickly, they will be miles ahead of their peers, and delight and inspire everyone around them, bringing glory to their Maker.
