Product Description

Why are boys so different? Why would a trip to the garbage dump be such a highlight in a boy's life? What do boys need to learn in order to become good men? A mother's influence on her sons is unique and valuable, but sometimes moms don't understand what makes their boys tick. They want to help their sons grow up to become men of honor and integrity, but that's a tremendous challenge. With refreshing honesty and a man's insight, author Rick Johnson offers the advice, understanding, and support every mom is looking for when it comes to raising godly sons. Using extensive research and humorous personal experiences, he addresses tough issues such as communication, discipline, sexuality, and respect.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Rick Johnson
Located in: Gresham, Oregon
Submitted: July 11, 2005

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I've owned an environmental consulting firm for 16 years. I am also the founder of Better Dads ministry, whose goal is to inspire and equip men to be more involved in the lives of their family. I present fathering workshops to men in businesses, churches, social service agencies, and prisons. I also work with several mentoring programs for young men. Lastly, I coach girl's high school basketball in my spare time (I seem to have a passion for coaching basketball). My wife Suzanne and I have two teenage children and have been married for 24 years.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  This book is a result of my experiences presenting a popular seminar titled Courageous Moms - Raising Boys to Become Good Men. I originally only spoke to groups of men, but a school counselor encouraged me to develop a seminar for all the single moms raising boys in his school district by saying, "It is easier to raise a boy than it is to fix a man."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I believe that most, if not all, of the problems plaguing our society are due to men abdicating their God-given roles as servant leaders in their homes and communitites. In that regard I hope this book helps all moms, but especially single moms, raise their sons to be godly men of character who will lead their families with integrity and nobility.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Influences are John Wooden, Stu Weber, John Eldredge, Steve Farrar, Ken Canfield, Randy Alcorn, Michael Gurian, John Maxwell, James Dobson, and recently Shaunti Feldhahn, as well as thousands of other fiction and non-fiction writers.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I have a second book being released in Spring 2006 by Revell Publishing. It's working title is Renaissance Fathers--Raising Noble Sons. I am currently working on a book about a father's advice to his daughter on choosing men of character to date and marry. This was inspired by many hundreds of women I have spoken with and surveyed at seminars who admitted, "I make lousy choices in men."
