Celebrating Manhood a Rite of Passage Guide
                                                    digital copy 14.95 print edition $18.95
Hard to believe we only have one "child" left, One boy turning into a man. I was searching for something different to "send" this one off to the world. I was so excited when offered the opportunity to review Celebrating Manhood, a rite of passage guide from Homeschool Adventure Co. written by Stacy Farrell.

  Having never really made a big deal of our boys becoming men, I felt a pull from God to make this last son turning to man a more significant event. Maybe more for me than him, but needing to nonetheless. "How?" I wondered. Then comes along this well written book about the journey of a boy into young adulthood and becoming the Man God chooses him to be.

     This book is a blueprint of sorts on how to plan the prefect event that will signify your son becoming a Man.I thought to myself this is just what I have been looking for. So I started to read and I was immediately put into daydream mode. I love planning events and this would tie in perfectly with this boy of mine and his graduation. So I set the date in motion in my head, we are going to execute this event the night of Graduation, it gets done early enough and it is a special day anyway.
  Now the author suggests this is done at age 14-15 but I truly think it is perfect for that age up to turning 18. Senior is absolutely perfect in my eyes.
   Included in this book is the story of the importance and significance of this special rite of passage in your son's life.
A sample Menu, invitation ideas and suggestions on who to invite, this will vary from family to family,
  In our house Male Mentors have been a huge importance due to my husband's mental illness but I feel it is important to included men from all aspects of the young man's life, in our case that would be Dad, God Father, important male influences such as our good family friend Eric and uncles and Grandpa. Along with big brothers, as well as important members of our church family like our Pastor.
        Question cards as well as how you the Mom should play an important role in this evening.  For the question cards I plan on including them in the invitations to the special guests so they can ponder them ahead of time. I would like to have them write out their answers so that Taylor can keep them forever. So he can always look back on the wisdom even when these important men in his life are gone from this Earth.

      I want this to be a separate event from his actual Grad party, so doing this on Graduation night seemed more intimate to me as we are very selective who we invite to this event. I want Taylor to be able to focus on the importance of the event.

  I am so excited to host this at our new home around our new huge dining table that I got from the boys at Christmas. It will have the intimate feeling I am looking for.
   I am still planning the menu and decorations I am making myself as well as I am working on small keepsake book for each of the important men in Taylor's life as well as one for Taylor himself, my hope is to add photos from Graduation and the special evening as well as include the question cards from our guests. My hope is that Taylor will remember this evening forever and truly gain from it all that I hope and pray for. I want all of my boys to realize that becoming a MAN is a huge milestone in their life and I hope that they all if they have boys when they are married will follow suit and do a similar special evening for their boys who are becoming Men.

 I think this would be a fabulous inspiration to turn this into something similar for girls turning into young women as well. I am so excited to execute this event and I am praying over each decision I make regarding the evening, but also being very careful to keep it TOP SECRET! I will be sure to post photos of the event after it is over on May 5th.

  This is an easy read but I warn you it will immediately get your brain swirling with ideas if you are anything like me, sometimes all I need is that spark to ignite the fire within me. I am so excited to make this happen and I am thankful for all the people in our life that will help make it the event I pray it will be.
