The Need for Sons for God – A note from Harold

April 12, 2009

 

As my daughters continue to grow both physically and spiritually I become increasingly aware that someday, in the not so distant future, I will most likely give my daughter’s hand in marriage to a man.  As I am personally involved in ministry to young men I am aware of the great need for parents to raise godly men.  Call it a selfish motive, but I need at least 4 parents to be actively involved in the lives of their sons, raising them in righteousness, holiness, and character – worthy enough to be the husbands of my daughters!  =)

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard the request for a “sons version” of Daughters 4 God.   Even though our emphasis remains on serving families with daughters after much prayer, we are adding a limited inventory of books for raising godly sons.  Of course we haven’t used these books with our daughters, however I would use them if I had sons.  We are calling our “sons” section “Christopher’s Corner”.   It is named after a very special Christopher to our family.

chriscornerlogobig2Christopher (we called him Chris) was a young man who came to live with our family for a few months last year.  Chris ended up in our home, seeking an understanding of his position as a son of God, a son to his parents, and what “growing up” was all about.  During his time with us, Chris grew up.  God ministered to him and his heart in significant ways.  And during this time, Chris touched our hearts, as well.

I have been blessed with only daughters.  But should I had been given a son I could have asked for nothing more than I found in Christopher.   He is the inspiration for the products we carry for sons.   

We pray that you and your sons will be blessed by these new resources,
Harold
