Real Men 101: Godly Manhood: Mentoring Material for Dad to use & Life Skills Course for the High School Transcripts.
What are Real Men?
In contrast to the feminist culture we are surrounded with, our heart is to raise REAL MEN who are world changers! These men are not afraid to lead their homes, churches, and nation! But, these men are surrendered to God in all areas of their lives: purity, servanthood, love, self-control, and disciplines.
Real Men is a series for building godly character and practical wisdom in young men’s lives. These courses are great for men of all ages, including guys in high school who need preparation to become the men God has called them to be.
Real Men 101: Godly Manhood is a one-credit high school life skills course with a focus on laying a solid foundation in the Christian life, meeting weekly with Dad, and learning practical household/car/lawn skills.
Created to be completed inside a mentoring relationship with fathers, this course can also be used effectively in a group, or homeschool co-op setting.
Guys read living books that will challenge them to press in closer to Jesus and grow up in their relationship with God, memorize Scripture, do Word studies, write an essay, create booklets on Christian living for children, learn practical skills for leading their future home, and enjoy hands-on projects.
This course is a one credit high school life skills course.

A Word from Pastor Mike, the Author's Husband
".....You see, I had taken very seriously my role in raising our daughters, but by a certain age the reins of discipleship were turned over to their mother who could do a much better job training them to become godly women.
But as my son turned the corner into his teenage years, my plans in mentoring him began to sharpen in focus. He began a course in godly manhood to prepare him to be God's man now, not ten years from now...accidently...because he had to...on his own! I say this last bit, because most dads really don't know how to raise boys. They still see it as mom's job. Men, raising godly men to become world changers is OUR JOB! Let's take this responsibility very seriously.
To do this I have implemented a course my wife compiled for Jimmy linked with personal discipleship material I created, some 30 lessons. My material will come later.
What you have before you is Meredith's high school course, that I started with, Real Men 101: Godly Manhood Class, to help guide your son to becoming that godly, world changing, young man. Your high school son will greatly benefit from the wise choice of books and assignments, mentoring materials and projects.
Men, if you take seriously raising godly children, train your sons on purpose with purpose. It doesn't happen by accident but with a conscious investment of YOUR time in YOUR son! Use this material to instill those necessary masculine qualities in your son like self-control, leadership, and diligence. I promise you, the rewards will be life-long!"
