Today (Monday, May 6th) I am really looking forward to the conversation with my friend Chris Brooks live on Moody radio. We’re talking about how we can actually help “distracted” young guys today.
Over the last several years I’ve had the opportunity to be the guest on Chris’ show, “Equipped with Chris Brooks” and it’s always one of my favorite interactions (shhhhhh…. don’t tell anyone!)
Chris brings wisdom, authenticity and relevance to conversations Continue reading “A fun conversation on Moody Radio” »

If your year has been as busy as mine… and your inbox as full as mine… then you might have missed a few things. So let me highlight a few posts you DON’T want to miss.
This year we’ve already released some really helpful articles for parents and youth workers… here’s a few really good resources already posted this year on either TheSource4Parents.com or TheSource4YM.com :
Helping kids hear truth in a world blaring lies: 3 proactive practices parents can pursue

Amazed once again at how good God is… last weekend Black Friday shoppers loaded up on my Guy’s Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket. The book was ranked 924 of ALL BOOKS on Amazon through the weekend.
Not bad at all for a Christian book to teen guys!
It’s funny, this is the book that parents keep buying and when I read the reviews, the common consensus is, “I bought this for my son (grandson, nephew, little brother) and he actually liked it!” (I always laugh when people are so surprised when a guy actually reads a book!)
Shout out to my editor to Kelly for setting the vision for this one!
This Thursday and Friday Focus on the Family will be airing a two-day radio show where they interview me about how parents and teachings can prevent bullying.

Some of you might have caught the exclusive excerpt of my new book I posted on our parents site last week. The following is ANOTHER excerpt from the first chapter of my brand new book, The Bullying Breakthrough, releasing this month… the first book where I finally tell my story…
Chapter 1: View from the Edge
“Sticks and stone may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
We’ve all heard it. We all had teachers who reiterated it. “…word will never hurt me.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. I probably don’t even need to give you thirteen reasons why Continue reading “View from the Edge” »
In the next few weeks I’m wrapping up my first draft of my next book, The Guy’s Guide to Four Battles Every Young Man Must Fight.
Would you like to read/screen it next week? Whoever does will get a free copy of the book on its release next year.
I only ask one thing– that you read it within a week. Interested? Keep reading.
I’m writing this book because of such a positive response to the first Guy’s Guide book I wrote: The Guy’s Guide to God, Girls and the Phone in Your Pocket. This book has been an Amazon best seller for two years now and seems to resonate with young men. I love reading the reviews because most of them are written by Continue reading “Would you like to screen my newest book to teen guys?” »
The same group of young people watches a boy get pushed around by a bully in gym class almost every day…
and they do nothing.
They merely “stand by.”
Some chuckle, some shake their heads. But no one does anything.
Are “bystanders” any better than the bully?
Ask the kid who is being harassed every day. Continue reading “Talking with teens about how they treat others” »
