About the Book

Moms Raising Sons to be Men Title: Moms Raising Sons to Be Men Author: Rhonda Stoppe Publisher: Harvest House Publishers Release Date: March 7, 2023 Genre: Religion / Christian Living / Women’s Interests/ Parenting Bringing up boys isn’t for the faint of heart, but bestselling author Rhonda Stoppe has been there before—and she’s here to help! Drawing on insights from fellow boy-moms and from Scripture, Rhonda reveals why walking with Christ is every mom’s key to parenting well. You’ll discover how motherhood gives you unique opportunities to grow in faith as you draw nearer to God through prayer, Bible study, and mentorship from godly women. You’ll also find practical advice for shaping your son in character and faith as you encourage his passions, teach him biblical masculinity, and protect his spirit without smothering his individuality. Your success as a mother doesn’t depend on what your son does with his life, but on how you obey God’s guidance on this mission of motherhood. Moms Raising Sons to Be Men provides the biblical hope, wisdom, and encouragement you need to help your son live a life without regrets!

“You will be encouraged, enlightened, and empowered to become the mom you’ve always wanted to be—and to guide your son into becoming the man God intended.”

—Cindi McMenamin, national speaker and author of When Women Walk Alone

My Thoughts:

I can remember when we found out our second child was going to be a boy. While I was excited and joyful, there was also a sense of worry. I was confident with raising our daughter, now God was giving me a new path. Immediately, I began to doubt my skills as a parent. I take my role as mom pretty serious, while I am teaching my children everyday life skills, I also am teaching them how to walk with God. Raising a Godly woman is something I can do by example for my daughter, but how do I do this for my son?

Rhonda Stoppe shares personal stories of her parenting her sons. I enjoy reading books that share real life situations, it makes it more tangible. There is also a good amount shared from the Bible. For example, a story that really stuck out in my head was how God said He was going to bless Jacob. When it came time for Isaac to give his blessing to his children, Rachel stepped ahead of God and had Jacob steal Esau’s blessing. In doing so Rachel caused great discord between Jacob and Esau causing Jacob to flee.

While I know God has a plan for my son, I know there may be times I have to let go and let God. I am not saying this is going to be easy but after reading more about Rachel, you have to wonder if she just trusted God and His timing, how the story would be. I know that this is also important for my son to see, it is important for him to see my obedience to God.

We homeschool so I spend a lot of time with my children on a daily basis. They see a lot of my failures and successes, I pray that above all they see my love, trust, and obedience to God. So while this book focused more on raising sons, it was easy for me to also draw some of these principles for raising my daughter too.

Each chapter ends with a few questions to ponder and the website has video re-caps for each chapter. I thought those features were a nice bonus to the book. This is also a book that I would probably highlight and write in if I had a physical copy. I would read it a one or two chapters a day in order to fully take in the principles and messages shared.
