A Bible Study for Mothers of Sons: Want to join me?

I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship with my boys and how much it will influence their attraction to and choosing of their wife.

That’s a frightening thought.

But it’s been convicting me to be more purposeful and careful in the way I relate to them and instruct them.  I came across this interesting Bible Study by Vicki Courtney called 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son.  While many of the principles in this book will be caught from and taught by their dad, it looks really interesting from the perspective of the mother-son relationship.

The five conversations are:

Redefining manhood: “Don’t define manhood by the culture’s wimpy standards.”

Choosing sides: “What you don’t learn to conquer may become your master.”

Saying no: “Not everyone’s doing it!”

Launching manhood: “Boyhood is only for a season.”

Pleasing God: Godly men are in short supply – dare to become one!”

So, here’s an invitation I’d like to throw out to any moms of boys out there… want to join me?  Two are better than one and I figure if anyone wants to go through this with me I’ll have a better chance of actually finishing it. 

I’d like to start the week of January 8th and will post reflections and discussion questions each Tuesday.  There are 5 days worth of homework for each week, so our first discussion forum will be here on January 16.  If you have a blog, you can post about it as well and link up here, or we can just chat in the comment section.

The video sessions are available for download for $4.99 each and the book can also be purchased here.

Are you in?

      Yes. You can order the book on your own and the video session (which is optional but recommended) can be downloaded for $4.99 per session. We’ll study on our own and basically converse about it here in the comment fields of the blog once I post the weekly recap beginning on January 16th. It’s ideal for those who can’t make it to a Bible study in person. Hope you can join me Susie!

    Yes, I’m super in! I intently study this subject because I feel like I have such a responsibility to these boys in this area. My husband is very good about teaching them about manhood, but I need to interject the importance of not just being a manly man but being a Godly one too. Looking forward to it.

    Hi Suzie,
    I would love to do this with you. I will order the book today. I am going to be going off of facebook this week for awhile. I subscribed to your blog so I hope I will get the conversation in my email. Thanks for putting this together.

    This is great I only wish I would have seen it sooner so we could have started on time but i will be doing this with my 17 yrs old step son as soon as we get the book,Its important for mothers to have a close bond with the Lord along side of their boys as well as the fathers in the family.
