Publisher's Description

When popular speaker Vicki Courtney released the best-selling Your Girl in 2004, and Beth Moore declared it “A must read for every daughter’s mother,” it wasn’t long before a fast-growing audience was naturally requesting Your Boy. After all, parents are seeking help to grow godly sons as well. And as the mother of two boys herself, Vicki rises to the occasion with this inspiring, tell-it-like-it-is new favorite.

She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and their three children.

Simply titled Your Boy, author Vicki Courtney’s book takes the reader on a wild ride into the world of boys. For this fasten-your-seat-belt journey, she urges moms to do their part in rearing godly boys in an ungodly world. Courtney hammers home that boys grow up before we know it, so it’s best to equip them at every stage with the tools they will need to grow into godly manhood.
From Hot Wheels to hormones, the author mentions her own trials and triumphs in bringing up two sons to be godly in a world saturated with sex. Founder of Virtuous Reality Ministries, Courtney is not bashful about revealing the moral impurities infiltrating the most unsuspecting places. “[A]s mothers, we (need to) rest in the settled peace…that our sons are always under (His) watchful eye.”
A mom’s sphere of influence is huge but is not meant to be polluted with manipulation, like Rebekah did with Jacob (in the Old Testament) to carry out her own schemes. Courtney offers a contrasting biblical example: “Hannah knew better than to think that Samuel belonged to her.”
Perhaps the author attempted to cram too much between the covers of this book, like encouraging moms not to diminish their high calling by coddling their sons; add to that the mission to rear their boys in godliness. Toss in, yet, a crash course on surviving a sex-obsessed culture, and she may have had material for several volumes. All the more reason, perhaps, for moms busy rearing their boys to get this much for the price of one! – Cheryl A. Cecil, Christian Book Previews.com

    I've read alot of books in my lifetime, but I most say this is the best. Vicki Courtney gives great advice in her book on rising boys. What I love most about the book is that it is all backed up by the bible through verses. I think as parents we all make mistakes and wish we had done certain things differently. I am a christian woman who has a great husband who loves God and his family. We both try to teach our children to love God above all in this life, but with even all this reading her book I could say oh I'm doing that as a mother and maybe I need to handle it differently. This is a must read for every parent trust me it will help you see things God's way for your son's life.

    I loved this book! It was an eye opener and filled with information that I feel is needed for our time. As a mother of a son, its nice to have a book that is written from a motherto other mothers about how we can navigate oursons through this ungodly culture. The book really gave me a lot to think about and start with using with my four year old son now. I also like the fact that she knows whats its like to have a child in Christian school as well as public schools. As a mother who has achild in Christian school it made me reconsider my "hands off approach" and realize that I still have to be an active part even if he is in a Christian school! Thank you Vicki for sharing and informing!
