Plants Grown Up: Projects for Sons on the Road to Manhood

by Pam Forster Author

This 490-page, spiral-bound book offers hundreds of ideas for Bible study projects, reading material, and practical, everyday activities to help train your sons for godly manhood. (Polished Cornerstones contains similar material to use with your daughters.) * One copy of this book can be used with all your sons from the time they can memorize simple Bible verses until the day they each get married. (And then they can save it to use with your grandsons!) * Each chapter offers a variety of reading, writing, Bible study, and active projects for you to choose from for each of your unique sons. * Projects in each chapter are listed in order according to increased difficulty. Start work in each area with young boys, and continue to disciple your sons with increasingly more difficult assignments. * Each project is labeled with the school subject it relates to, enabling homeschoolers to easily incorporate projects into their regular school plans. * Evaluation questions at the end of each chapter help parents and sons pinpoint weaknesses, discuss areas of improvement, and pray specifically for spiritual growth. * Many reproducible charts and forms encourage serious Bible study and self-examination.
