Day 232: I Want to be a Man

Day 232: I Want to be a Man
August 20, 2014 Neil Kennedy


Proverbs 20:11

Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right.


Within the heart of a boy is a man wanting to express himself.

We received this email:

“My dad is always bringing me books to read. I couldn’t understand why he gave me a book entitled, The Resurrection of Authentic Manhood. I hadn’t noticed that the book had gone missing from it sitting on my dresser. Then my son started asking me strange questions – “Did you know that Pastor Sawyer’s dad was in the war?” – “Did you know that his dad went to heaven?” – And then he said, “Pastor Sawyer respected his father because he didn’t do bad things and he loved him.”

I went into my 8-year old sons room to see him asleep with his arm cuddling the book that Pastor Sawyer wrote. After he awakened, I asked him, “Why are you reading such a hard book? This book is written for adults.” He looked at me and said, “Momma, I want to be a man!””

This fatherless boy will face many obstacles in his journey toward authentic manhood – that’s one of the reasons that FivestarMan exists – we want to help boys to become men.


Every man has a boy looking at them – the question becomes, “Do they want to be a man like you?”
