It's interesting how much weight gets thrown upon our shoulders by the standards of the world. Women are supposed to do this, this, and this (whatever that may be), and we sometimes complain about getting overwhelmed, and everyone understands...life can be/get stressful . But men have preconceived notions to live up to too. Society, work, family and even friends all seem to have a certain ideal about what our men should or should not do. We expect a whole lot out of our guys, and the world does too. Sometimes I'm sure they could use a little help in finding ways to cope, though if your fellas are like the men in my life, they may not be all that vocal about it. I swear I've seen both of my grown sons take on some pretty heft amounts of stressful weight, and neither one of them peeped so much as an ounce of complaint (unless they did so to each other when no one else was around, because thankfully they are best friends too). :)
Kent Evans, along with Rob Suggs have written a spiritual-based book that can help provide some insight and guidance to the men in your life. It makes for a pleasant read too.
The book is written in a conversational tone and uses examples and situations men can easily relate to in their own lives. It's an easy read that is jam-packed with wisdom, experience, and real life-applying techniques for men. It's a resource they can turn to time and time again, and I have gifted it to my nephew, who I know will use and love it. He's a new daddy too, so you can believe he gets his bouts with being overwhelmed. Happy? Undoubtedly yes...but still overwhelmed. His wife and baby girl have a lot of expectations for the family leader he now has to be, and though he's stepped up to the plate and is doing beautifully, I know a little resource writing to turn to could be a very welcome thing.
Men are to be the leaders in our families and many are but some get weighed down with that expectation. This book will help you to understand God’s plan for men better and in turn would make a great book to pass onto the guys in your life! Our sons will be fathers and husbands some day. How can we help them along in becoming the men God intended them to be?
“I’ve always defined true ministry as the process of walking through something with God and then being vulnerable enough to turn around and walk someone else through, too. Kent’s infectious passion to develop Christ-like men is evident in his writing and you will be both challenged and inspired by this collection of characteristic profiles of men who have gone before to show the way. Bravo, Kent. You are walking us through.” Mark Hancock, award-winning writer and Chief Executive Officer of Trail Life USA
