In the same tradition as Raising a Modern-Day Knight, this book is designed to equip parents to cultivate strong relationships with their adolescents. Raising a Modern-Day Princess stresses the importance of creating a rite of passage for teen girls—a defining moment in which girls can be blessed by significant adults in their lives, and a call for their families and communities to celebrate and support them as they enter womanhood. This book offers practical help in raising a generation of women to see themselves as God sees them—as daughters of the King.

YOU’RE THE MAN. NOW ACT LIKE IT. Thirteen million single mothers. A culture drowning in passivity. Where have all the men gone? Most men spend their entire lives learning what it means to be a man. There are plenty of role models available, from our own fathers to coaches to movie stars – but not all of them set a Godly example. Even when they have the best intentions, most men lead by example and expect their sons to understand what manhood is without ever receiving intentional training on the subject. As a result, most bear the scars of the mistakes made along the way in trying to prove their manhood to themselves and others. Man up is an intentional look at the facets of a fully-engaged, powerful, passionate and functional man using Biblical wisdom and the experience of dozens of mature men, set into a five step process that is easy enough for a ten-year-old boy (and his father) to memorize and understand. Once learned, this study will give every young man a clear gauge of manhood against which he can measure himself, thus freeing him from ever wondering what he must do to prove that he has what it takes. In picking this book up to share with their sons, adults will learn more about the mantle of manhood, too, and will be challenged to shun passivity and take up the headship that is their duty, one sadly that is often left to the woman of the house. It is intended also to help single mothers to teach their sons about manhood in the absence of an engaged father figure. The study will benefit young women as well, many of whom go into their college years with no healthy idea of what a real man looks like – and end up making terrible dating and marriage choices because of it.

Emulating the format of Raising a Modern-Day Princess, authors Doreen Hanna and Karen Whiting seek to help parents and grandparents cultivate strong relationships and encourage the spiritual formation in their daughters using examples, Bible teaching on the fruit of the Spirit, and a variety of creative activities that are based on Galatians 5:22-23, the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control). By implementing the ideas in this book, mothers (as well as fathers) will be equipped to understand and guide their daughters through each step of becoming His “princess.” This will include perceiving a daughter’s unique personality and gifts, refining her character through training and discipline, and modeling the attributes of a daughter of the King. This book is a follow-up to both Raising a Modern-Day Knight (by Robert Lewis) and Raising a Modern-Day Princess by Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna. While the latter book is aimed at parents of girls ages 12 and up, this book focuses on building the Christian character of younger girls.

For generations, other religions and cultures have put their children through a rite of passage to adulthood. Many people are aware of the Jewish practice of the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, for example. The reality, however, is that many children today don’t learn how to become adults on purpose; rather, they ride the wave of adolescence toward an unknown adult future. Moms, dads, and other perfectly placed adults have the unique opportunity to guide the teenagers in their life toward adulthood. This is not a privilege to be taken lightly, but neither is it an impossible task. Jim McBride, executive producer of Fireproof and Courageous, brings wisdom, experience, and practical examples to his guidebook for leading those burgeoning adults in your life through a real-life Rite of Passage.
