Just a reminder for all of us. We are raising Men.
As our boys got a bit older we had them memorize this definition of a man from Robert Lewis, Modern Day Knight
A man is one who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously and expects God's reward
Awesome definition. Now this will be our jumping off point for my memorization plan for next year. What did you think of the book?
The book is named: Raising A Modern Day Knight by Robert Lewis. Here is the Amazon Blurb:
(We followed his principles and had our on version of ceremonies at certain mile stones)
What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how does a father instill these qualities in his son? Using as an example the process by which a boy moved through the medieval stages of knighthood, Robert Lewis identifies parallel stages for today's fathers to create ceremonies to commemorate significant milestones in a young man's journey toward becoming a modern-day knight. Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, Robert Lewis shares a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man by equipping him with three essential elements: a vision, a code of conduct, and a cause (Christianity) in which to invest his life. Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in his mind, this softcover is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a chivalrous, godly man.
Love that definition!! Thanks for sharing!!
