The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood by John Croyle Book Review and Giveaway!!

The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood by John Croyle is the work of a passionate and purposeful father.  John, who played football as an All-American defensive end at the University of Alabama and now runs the Big Oak Boys Ranch, is a father of two incredible children.  Both his son and daughter witness their father living out what he says.  In this book he unpacks seven principles that start with the letters of MANHOOD.  M is for Master, A is for ask and listen, N is for never compromise, H is for handle your business, O is for one purpose, O is for one body and D is for don't ever, ever, ever give up.  He makes some very bold, but life-changing statements about the values that parents must be teaching their children.  He explains that there is a "two minute drill" in life that happens at about 16 years of age and the job of the parents is to prepare their children for these crucial moments.  He shares practical, doable examples from his own life.  He is candid, honest and also compassionate for single parents.  His message is clear, have a game plan and carry it out.

I really enjoyed the stories John told in this book especially about how he taught the kids.  He shared mistakes and successes.  His game plan is very solid and he made several statements that are big neon signs to me about what I should be doing as a parent.  He shared many nuggets of wisdom starting with "The greatest gift you can give to your child is..."  He really challenged me to up my game and seek God for everything I need to be and do as a parent.  I am thankful for the counsel provided in this book and I highly recommend it for parents of both boys and girls.
