//////// An IronMen Moment ///////
Anyone familiar with Robert Lewis' book? Dads out there?
It is worth the read, if you haven't yet. It's largely from the father's perspective, but he does include feedback and responses from his sons over the years. Lewis joined forces with other fathers near him, who were also believers, and who shared his commitment to raising mature, well-prepared, servant-leading young men.
One of the hallmarks of Christian homeschoolers over the decades has been that they're most interested in rearing children to be adults, not "kid-ults", as some youth are described today. Lewis had that goal pegged back when he wrote this book.
Again, it's worth the read, if you're interested. It's a 1997 Tyndale publication. 163 pages long, and not dense. I'm sure we will be drawing from parts of it during the IronMen program.
