Known and respected as a "mom in the trenches," Vicki Courtney helps mothers of tween and teen boys win the culture battle for their children's mind, body, and soul. Growing the next generation of godly men is perhaps the most important calling a woman can have. In Your Boy, Vicki uses the biblical example of Rebekah and Jacob to warn against scheming and manipulation and the example of Hannah and Samuel to remind mothers that their sons do not belong to them; they belong to God. This second edition replaces the original version and includes a new introduction by the author.

If you are the mother of a son eighteen years old or younger, especially one in the tween or teen years, then you know that you are in a war for his mind, body, and soul. From his very first step to his first big steps into manhood, the things of this world relentlessly compete for his attention.
Best-selling author Vicki Courtneys Your Boy keenly observes the complex culture young men face today and shows what mothers can do in spite of negative worldly influences to raise godly sons.
"As mothers we have a brief time to make a godly impact on our sons; to grow the next generation of godly men. It is perhaps the highest calling God can give a woman," Vicki writes.
Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails; we know what little boys are made of. Now find out what it takes to make a man.
