Hal and Melanie Young of Raising Real Men will speak on “A Practical Guide to Equipping the Hearts and Minds of Boys without Losing or Breaking Your Own.” They will address the question, “How can we prepare our boys to serve God?” In spite of what the culture is telling us, boys and girls are different. If the world seems intent on gender-bending and forcing our sons into a feminized mold, Hal and Melanie, parents of six boys, explain the Biblical way out as they share how to reach the hearts and minds of our boys. Raising Real Men will send you home with a rejuvenated goal of raising our boys in this generation to be godly men with purpose.
