"Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." - Romans 12:1–2 msg

Editorial Reviews

As the father of 11 grown sons (yes, 11 boys among 19 total children), I would have loved a resource like this when my sons were teenagers. Teen guys today will love Jonathan McKee's humor and insight, and his perfect balance of caution and encouragement. It's a clear map to the good life!
Pat Williams
Senior Vice President, Orlando Magic

“Wow!  Jonathan McKee hammered this one out of the park!  The Guy’s Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket, speaks in a language that boys and young men can relate to and understand.  This easy-to-digest little book teaches young males the wisdom they need in order to be successful in life. It covers virtually every topic (even the tough ones) that males struggle with today and provides powerful solutions for them without preaching at them.  If I still had a boy at home, I’d be running to get this book!”
-Rick Johnson, bestselling author of That’s My SonBetter Dads Stronger Sons, and A Man in the Making

"Jonathan McKee's THE GUY'S GUIDE TO GOD, GIRLS, AND THE PHONE IN YOUR POCKET is refreshingly brutal. As a mom, sometimes it's hard to know what's going through your teen son's head when it comes to anything. That's where Jonathan comes in. With a casual and warm tone, he advises boys on how to live--from the more superficial (yet important) how to smell and sleep to the heavier advice on how not to get entangled in porn, how to worship, and how to take ownership of everyday tasks. The lessons are brief and accessible. This book is a must-have for modern boys."

-Nancy French, New York Times Best-Selling Author 

“Face it: You’ve outgrown diaries for ‘wimpy kids’ and so-called dangerous books for boys. Now it’s time for some brutal honesty; some meaty, man-sized chunks of wisdom every guy must hear: secrets about God, girls, grooming, friends, faith. . .and what it means to be ‘a man after God’s own heart.’ This book delivers! Buy a copy for yourself and another for a friend, and take to heart the good stuff packed in these pages.”

—Michael Ross, bestselling author of Worry-Free Living and a former youth editor at Focus on the Family

This book is amazing! It’s a series of short Q&A essays to not only help teens learn how to conquer their choices God’s way but also what to look for so they don’t start heading down the wrong path.
My favorite part? As a girl reading it hit me that they weren’t pulled together in a specific format but then it hit me that the book reminded me of a conversation with my teen sons. Short. To the Point. No Fluff. Just Facts. Perfect for a teen’s brain!

I read this book because I have a pre-teen son who is already having questions and concerns about not only becoming a man, but becoming a Godly man. This book was extremely helpful with all his questions and topics I didn't even know we SHOULD be discussing with him! It will definitely be a book that we will be referencing over and over again throughout his teenage years and also when his younger brother becomes a teenager. I will definitely be sharing this book with the youth pastors at my church!
