"What a gift Brooke has given us in this wonderfully practical and urgently needed book. We all want the very best for our sons. We invest so much in growing our boys up right, but we must remember that only our prayer partnership with God can mold their hearts. Brooke teaches us mamas how to fill the most sacred spaces of parenting with powerfully effective prayers."
--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

"Praying for Boys is more than a book of prayers or a devotional book for moms. It's a real toolbox that empowers parents to lead, love, and fight for the hearts of their sons. It's brought me to my knees, not in desperation but in excitement!"--Amanda White, ohAmanda.com, author of Truth in the Tinsel

"Praying for Boys is profoundly motivating and biblical. Every mom who needs direction in raising boys into spiritually vibrant men will be challenged to embrace this clear strategy that Brooke provides. Highly practical and very encouraging!"--Sally Clarkson, director of Mom Heart Ministries and author of Desperate

"I can't think of a greater resource for parents of boys than this book. Brooke McGlothlin has taken her love for all things boy, spelled out the important stuff, and infused a deep understanding of what boys need most in these pages. It is a must-read and pass-it-on kind of book!"--Lisa Whittle, speaker and author of {w}hole

"Brooke's words on prayer have been an inspiration to me as I raise three boys. Praying for Boys has challenged me to get on my knees and cry out to God for my sons in ways I never had before--boldly, expectantly, persistently, passionately. My mama heart has been changed."--Erin Mohring, co-founder of Raising Boys Media

"As a mom it is a necessity and a privilege to bring our children to God through prayer. Brooke has created a fantastic resource to encourage and help us along the way. Praying for Boys is a must-have for every boy-mom!"--Ruth Schwenk, speaker, writer, and creator of thebettermom.com

"With a heart for praying God's Word and a vision for raising up the next generation of godly men, I've been given a gift through Brooke's Praying for Boys. With three teen sons, I yearn for authentic encouragement and biblical wisdom that points me to the cross--Brooke does just that."--Jen Schmidt, author of the blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam

"While our sons grow tall, wearing out the knees on their jeans from tumble and play, we mothers too find our fabric worn thin from kneeling in prayer for our soon-to-be men. Brooke's practical book, full of vulnerable sharing and deeply rooted in God's Word, will become a useful tool as you seek to make prayer a priority and model for your boys just how to run hard after Jesus."--Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries director of speakers and author of LET. IT. GO.

    Praying specific prayers for your son will not only bring resul

    Praying specific prayers for your son will not only bring results, but will also give you a peace about your son's life that isn't possible without a direction connection to the heavenly Father. The author has taken specific concerns that moms have for their boys and designed chapters to address each of them with prayer. Each chapter has the title of a positive trait. It then begins with a thought from a "grown up boy", scripture and thoughts to work towards this trait. It ends with prayers and some discussion or reflection questions.

    Each chapter is well laid out and very concise. The author brings her own personal experiences into the book, but has also pulled from other moms and grown men to get a very good feel for specific topics to address. Each chapter resonated with me as a mom. While written by a mom and probably for a mom, it can definitely be used by dads, grandparents, or other people. I also think it can be adapted to work for my daughter. I will definitely be keeping this book and intend to gift it to several of my friends who are pregnant with boys.

    I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

    Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most was a

    Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most was a spectacular book. The word brilliant also comes to mind. It was just what I needed. In fact, I think it is just what all parents need.

    There were so many things that I liked about this book. I adored the conversational tone that the author used. She was funny and she was encouraging at the same time. She didn't have all of the answers, but yet and still, she offered the perfect solution.

    I loved that she talked about the peculiar challenges that come with raising boys. I loved that she presented a picture of the dual parent, as well as the single parent family and home life. I loved that she also gave a picture of what a successful parenting model looks like from a Biblical perspective.

    She referred to Scripture after Scripture to convey what to pray and how to pray. She gave a step-by-step guide on how to use this book. She provided questions for consideration. She suggested helpful tips on how to insure that mom-time with God did not fall by the wayside.

    In a way, she served as the head cheerleader for moms-R-us.

    I cannot say enough good things about this title. It was even better than I anticipated.

    Mothers, especially busy mothers (and fathers, I dare say), will like this book because it is an easy, functional, practical read that allows one to hit the ground running.

    Outstanding!

    Rating: 5/5

    Recommend: Yes

    Bookshelf Worthy: Yes

    Other/Options: This book needs to be read by mothers and fathers, as well as by extended family and caregivers. It is suitable for all audiences. It would be ideal for a book club. It would be perfect for a church library. It would also be a great resource for a parenting seminar or class.

    A complimentary copy of this title was made available to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The words I have expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
