Review of 'Moms Raising Sons to Be Men' by Rhonda Stoppe

Hello Mama Bookworms!

Hi.  I am Christi and I am a mom of only boys.  I always wanted a little girl when I was in my baby making years, but God blessed me with two boys that are my light and my life instead.  Seeing all my friends go through what they're going through with their teenage daughters right now makes me thank God that He knew what he was doing and didn't listen to me.  I don't think I could handle a girl!  Not to say that raising boys is any easier, but it suits me just fine.

One thing I have always been thankful for are the invaluable resources out there that help us moms that are raising boys, a job that is very important, and one I do not take lightly.  Which is why I'm excited to be featuring a wonderful resource that guides moms to raising their sons to be men.

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 Review

I have been blessed to be the mom of two amazing boys, but there are times I wonder if I am doing it right.  I have always been a girly girl by nature, so when I ended up with all boys to raise it was a bit of a shell shock, to say the least.  Luckily, I have learned on the job over the years, and my parents grew as they did, but I wish I would've had a resource like Moms Raising Sons to Be Men when they were younger to help my navigation that much easier.  Even being a mom to teenage boys, I am thankful that I have this resource now and can still apply many of the points to my parenting arsenal, even with my boys being older.

Moms Raising Sons to Be Men is full of practical applications and helpful Scripture references that led me to further study that goes beyond parenting.  I listened to the audiobook first, but having the physical copy helped bring many of the points home and allowed me to take more notes. Rhonda has a good pace, the different sections are easy to recognize, and I never felt myself lost, even going back to particular sections more than one time.

One of the biggest parts that has continued to stick with me was letting my boys go, and trusting that God will take care of them.  My boys are 17 and 16, so the thought of them leaving the nest is very real, very scary, and happening way too fast.  The thought of them being out in this scary world alone is positively frightening but I've always had a strong faith for myself, so why wouldn't I have that same faith with my boys?

Listening to Rhonda’s words was like listening to a friend give advice, and discuss their faith and the Bible, and I could see this being a wonderful resource for a Christian mom group, as well as for personal study.  I can't rave about Moms Raising Sons to Be Men enough and highly recommend for all of my fellow boy moms.
