Every Friday, Josiah and The Muffin go off on an adventure together. They call it “Dad’s Day Out.” Out of politeness they have offered to take me along, but unless they plan on spending 2 hours at Hobby Lobby I politely shake my head no. I relish my quiet time, but mostly it does my heart good to see my two guys carving out a time just for themselves. You can understand how excited I was to review Manhood Journey Father’s Starter Kit from Manhood Journey & City on a Hill Studio.
Manhood Journey is a Bible-based study for fathers and sons. It is non-denominational and is intended to grow young men through discipleship. It can be used in small groups at church which is especially great for young men who do not have a father who plays an active Spiritual role in their lives. The study is recommended for ages 8-17.
The Starter Kit that I received contains the following:
· Embarking Group Discussion Guide
· Embarking 1 on 1 Discussion Guide
· DVD of the introductory videos
· 10 Maprochures
· Free Bonus book: Wise Guys: Unlocking Hidden Wisdom from the Men Around You, by Kent Evans (Manhood Journey Co-Founder)
The program is divided into six sessions:
Week 1: Preparing for the Journey
Week 2: Setting Out on the Journey
Week 3: Relying on the Compass
Week 4: Seeking Guidance Along the Way
Week 5: Encountering Others Along the Journey
Week 6: We Have Embarked – Where to Next?
Each session contains scripture readings and discussion questions.
