Overview Mothers can ensure a healthy, happy future marriage for their sons by raisingthem to be the kind of godly husband every woman desires.
Publishers Description What Kind of Husband Will Your Son Grow Up to Be? His is a generation of boys who have better relationships with their Game Boxes, i-Pods, televisions, and computers than they do with their families. His understanding of marriage is that it has little hope for success, witnessing a fifty percent divorce rate both inside and outside of the church. His world is one where pornography is no longer a hidden shame, but encouraged as entertainment. "Can "you raise your son to one day love, lead, and protect a wife and family in a world like this? "The answer is yes." The heartbeat of this book is to give you the tools to help your son become a tender warrior who will one day fight for his family, a godly husband who will faithfully love his wife, and a leader who will be a man of his word. "The time is now" to take your love, tears, prayers, and influence and pour them into his future. Even if our world does not change its moral fiber, " you" can influence your son and bring hope to the next generation. It's an opportunity of a lifetime--"yours." Reviews "Not only is this an amazing concept, but it meets an urgent need for every mother of boys." Lisa Bevere, speaker and author of "Fight Like a Girl" and "Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry"
"I have three sons, two stepsons, two son-in-laws, and nine grandsons Any help I can glean to give me more wisdom is welcome. I would have welcomed more help like this when I was a young mother raising my young men for 'the other woman.'" LeeAnn Rawlins, Coauthor, "To Love Again"
Story Behind the Book When the manager of a large Christian bookstore told Sheri Rose Shepherd that readers of the popular His Princess TM series were futilely looking for material about raising their sons to be godly future husbands, she knew she could help. "Think about how much farther all men would be in their marriages if their moms had trained them how to one day love and understand their wives," says Sheri Rose . "We can take all the mistakes we've made in our lives and use them to teach our sons the right way to live. And we can use our most powerful weapon of all--our prayers--to fight for them."

A Mother's Guide Sep 9, 2007
I teach parenting classes for a Pregnancy center located in the lowerclass section of a large city. Many of our mom's are single and trying to raise their family without a lot of support from the fathers.They also din't have good role models in their own families while growing up. I used this book as the topic for our Mother's Day luncheon. It gave them encouragement that they COULD make a difference! I also included the book, The Power of a Praying Parent..because they need God's help and guidance in raising their children. Our mom's LOVED the class!
Letting him "go" is easier than you think...she'll show you how Jun 12, 2007
This is, by far, my very favorite book on this subject matter that I have ever read. It has compelled me to write a review on it; I sent the link to my sister and friends and they all RAVED about it. More than anything, it has helped me to begin treating my "tiny husband" (as I used to think of him as) as a young man with a godly purpose to his life and doing it step-by-step this early on (he's 6)...which will help me to "let go" when God brings his wife to him someday. It will also allow him to "leave and cleave" to his wife in a healthy manner.
It has also helped me to begin truly loving his future wife and anticipating her arrival one day; I now pray more fervently for her.
My husband related to it so well, too. When I read to him that her husband's mother had been praying for her since she was a little girl, he actually choked up, as his mother died when he was a little boy. He's known that my mother always prayed for him - and I read that passage to him on his mother's birthday to let him know that he was never alone. We both now are treating our son in a manner to which he feels inspired to be a godly man, husband and father.
Simple, practical, loving, and Christ-following. This is my guide to loving my son and helping him to be the man that God calls him to be. Thank you, Shari Rose!

Sons are Awesome!!! May 9, 2007
I am the mother of 4 sons. I wish I had read this book years ago when I was a young mother. I am also a teacher of young kids and through the years I have seen a decline in respect among children. This book had some really awesome ideas for how to totally bond with a son, beginning at a very young age. It teaches how to show young boys how to respect women!!!!!!!
I am lucky that I had my 4th son later in life, so I did do things right with him. And what the book says is true...if you show boys how to behave, they will. My son is now almost 16 and to this day loves to spend time with me, even in front of his peers. He craves personal time and touch with his momma. I know he is going to grow into an awesome husband who will respect and love women.
So if you are a mother of boys, definately get this book. It would also make a wonderful baby gift to a new mom!!
Boost I needed Jan 28, 2007
I loved this book! This type of book was one that I had been looking for for a long time. I have a 14 year old son and also work for an organization that works with single moms. I am also ordering this book for my staff who have sons. I was feeling helpless since reading other books that put so much stress on dads being a part of their son's lives and leaving out what moms can do. I agree with dads being the important element in their son's lives 100 percent, but what about the son who doesn't have a father figure or whose father is not active in the son's life? This book gives helpful and easy information for any mom to understand and apply. I highlighted many things in my book so I have a quick reference when I slip up and stop encouraging my son like I want to be. It might be common sense to some moms but to some of the moms I know, this book will be great! It's an easy read, even for someone who doesn't care to read much.
