Boys grow up to be men, and spiritually strong men are not born, they are made. The way for boys to become Godly men is through a daily connection with God, and that will be stronger if they start young. These devotionals can be used by guys of any age, but are specifically geared for teens as they strive to navigate the challenges and avoid the pitfalls of teen life. Learning to do things God wants instead of caving in to peer pressure is a skill that can be honed by use, but can be taught through lessons from Scripture like the ones in these amazing books.
