I can’t believe the way time gets away from me, but it’s happened again. I wrote a pre-pub testimonial for Raising Real Men, after I read the book several months ago. I sent it to the publisher, but never got it posted here.
The book is now available and it’s high time I get to telling you about it.
Although the process of Raising Real Men is not always “fun”, reading the book was a delight. As a mother of 4 sons (and 6 daughters), I was encouraged as over and over I caught myself saying, Yes!, to both the description of the behavior and wiring of boys and the proper biblical response and direction they need.
If you’ve got sons, you should read Raising Real Men.
A few others, whose opinions I value, agree:
“Hal and Melanie Young have six sons and are disciples of Jesus. They know how to raise real men. This book is a treasure trove of practical tips to help you to raise your sons right. It will answer your questions, help you avoid mistakes, bring them up in the Lord, and understand them. I highly recommend it.”

“Hal and Melanie have put together a wonderful, warmhearted, and practical little book on raising sons into men of God – a must-read for any parent blessed with boys.”

“Raising boys can be a tremendous challenge for parents, especially when you have more than an few. We know that God designed them much differently than girls because of the role that He has chosen for them in life. Hal and Melanie in RAISING REAL MEN, have approached this subject from a Biblical perspective and have been true to the Biblical principles laid down for raising boys. However, once the principle has been laid out, then they bring a unique practical aspect to raising boys where the rubber meets the road. This is a book that will give parents a clear road map to follow for having the greatest possibility of success as parents prepare boys for their God-given role in adulthood. This is a book that every family should have no matter the number of boys and even those families without boys as the book gives tremendous insight into understanding how boys think and why they act as they do. This book meets a crying need in an area where there is very little specific direction. Thank you Hal and Melanie for this outstanding work of the Lord.”
