Homeschool Review Crew: Manhood Journey Father's Starter Kit

     As a woman, who grew up with a godly father who was constantly reminding us of how great our Heavenly Father is, I prayed for my children to have a dad who would lead them in the ways of the Lord.  As a young mom, I didn't realize the importance of the role of a dad, but as I matured in my Christian walk, I realize more and more how essential a godly man is in the home.  I began to pray more fervently for my husband to take on this task and be the godly role model my children needed.  My boys especially needed his instruction in their lives.  

     I was excited to see this study come up and we were happy to learn we would be reviewing  the Manhood Journey Father's Starter Kit by Manhood Journey & City on a Hill Studio.   My husband and two boys decided this would be a good study for them to work on together.  I was thrilled to see them work on this wonderful program and prayed that God will do a good work in each of their lives through it.  

    In this kit you will receive:
  •  Group Discussion Guide to help you lead your group
  •   1 on 1 Discussion Guide full of discussion points & activities for fathers to use with their sons
  •  DVD of the introductory videos for all six modules {this kit has the first module}
  •  10 Map Brochures- an informational brochure/map of all the modules that helps you recruit dads to join your group and guides module selection as you form community
  •  Free copy of Wise Guys: Unlocking Hidden Wisdom from the Men Around you by the Manhood Journey cofounder, Kent Evans.  
    This kit can be used in 2 different ways.  You can use it for a group study of fathers/mentors and sons/young men or you can use it for a father and his own sons.  This kit is designed to help men teach younger men how to grow into godly men of God. This study is set up  so that it will be easy to use whether you are a new leader or a veteran teacher.

     I believe this study can be life changing for the young men of our world.  If the godly men in our homes and churches would disciple the younger men, they would be more equipped to face the difficulties that come up in life.  

     Today I sat down with my boys and asked them what they thought of the lessons they have covered so far and their response was that they loved it.  They enjoyed learning the 5 Big Rocks discussed in the study guide.  They enjoyed spending time with their dad discussing how to better live their lives for Christ.  They said they feel more prepared to serve Christ in their daily lives. They also see the importance of reading God's Word and praying on a daily basis in order to live lives pleasing to Him. I feel they will be able to make wiser decisions due to this journey. 

     So they can be reminded of the 5 Big Rocks taught in the book, we made our own little poster that we laminated and will keep on the refrigerator. The girls can also be reminded of these 5 basic principles that teach us how to be Christians that want to make a difference in the lives of others.  

      If you would like to learn more about this amazing resource you can visit their website Manhood Journey & City on a Hill Studio or their Facebook page, Manhood Journey.   We also have some more reviews for you to check out over at the Homeschool Review Crew website. 

     Have a blessed day!!!
