The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is John's game plan

Overview

If you are the parent of a teenager, you are coming down to what former All-American and one of today's most respected child advocates John Croyle calls the two-minute drill. In football the last two minutes are crucial; the whole game builds to those moments that can determine the final outcome.

The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is John's game plan that will help moms and dads make sure their sons are ready for authentic manhood. Based on Croyle's life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children on the Big Oak Ranch for Boys and Girls, as well as parenting his two biological children, he drills down into seven actionable life principles drawn from the word "manhood" itself:

M – Master
A – Ask and Listen
N – Never Compromise
H – Handle Responsibility
O – One Purpose
O – One Body
D – Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Give Up

"Having been personally involved with Big Oak Ranch for nearly 30 years, I have seen first-hand the fruit of changed lives of young people who live there. This Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is a must-read for every parent raising a son."

“There is no doubt that one of the biggest voids in today’s culture is the lack of a Godly influence in the family as parents raise their sons. The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood by John Croyle addresses this issue in a very practical way. A must-read for all Moms and Dads.”
 
Tommy Bowden
ESPN Analyst and college football coach for 32 years
 
 
“Our country is so desperate for Godly men. Men for the most part have no plan and have never been taught or are able to teach their own sons what a Godly man really looks like. The Two-Minute Drill is a powerful tool that should be added to every man’s arsenal and then teach what every man should know about what’s important in life.”
 
Rick Burgess
Co-host of the Rick and Bubba Show
 
 
“It's so refreshing to step back and take a look at why things are heading in the wrong way.  So many people like to ask "why"?  John has laid out a game plan in The Two Minute Drill for raising up boys to be real Godly men...  something we desperately need!”
 
Bubba Bussey

“John Croyle’s hands-on parenting experience at Big Oak Ranch and his wonderful ability to tell stories really drew me in. Every parent of a young boy needs to be reading The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood.”

As a mother of two sons, I found this book incredibly helpful and insightful! It's full of Biblical principles to help us raise our sons with integrity and love. This book was such a pleasure to read. It flows along nicely and I really like how John shares a lot of personal stories from his own life. I was especially impressed by his work with the "Big Oak Boy's Ranch" what they are doing through this organization. I love how all the Scripture is woven throughout the book. You can't go wrong with parenting when you use the Biblical principles God set up for us. He shows us the practical steps to using these precepts to raise our sons in a godly manner; to raise them up to be godly men. My absolute favorite part of the book is the last chapter. It's entitled "What We Learned about Manhood From Our Dad: An Interview with Brodie Croyle and Reagan Croyle Phillips". This chapter shares questions and answers from John's children. It's also filled with pictures of John and his family. I loved how they shared their hearts and love for their father. It was such a beautiful testament. I highly recommend this book to parents of sons! It's a wonderful book filled with great principles that will help you guide your son into being a godly man. It's a wonderful book! *This book was provided to me for my honest review by Shelton Interactive
