Calling out the Manhood- Our son’s 13th birthday

This is a very special week for us here at our household.

Yes, it is the beginning of spring, yay!

Yes, we just went to the homeschool conference of conferences!

Yes, we are on spring break!

But that is not the main thing.

My second born son is turning 13!

In our home this is far more then becoming a teenager.  No, the 13th birthday in our home is far more…

At age 13 we have a “Manhood Initiation” for our sons.

We do not adopt the mindset of the world…that at the mysterious age of 13 the hormones turn our sons and daughters into instant rebels.  No, we want our children to serve the Lord with even more vigor in their youth. To not be content with the “status quo”.

We are not raising our children to remain children, but we are raising young adults.  This means they must begin to think with vision, with maturity, with a biblical worldview.  And for our sons in particular on their 13th  birthday we desire to…

Call out the Manhood in our Sons!

And this weekend grandparents from afar, close friends and mentors will unite in celebrating and surrounding our son with prayers and rejoicing.  I plan on posting pictures in the future, but in the meantime, enjoy a peek at my firstborns manhood initiation almost two years ago…


 

 

I hope to share later next week a post to convince you of why every homeschool family should attend a homeschool convention near you this year!
