About the Author
When my oldest child, Cole, entered the teenage years, the idea of a rite of passage grabbed my attention. For a boy, the goal is to help him know what it means to be a Godly man, which requires intentionality, teaching, the consistent example of a Godly man, and a memorable ceremony.
I asked a dozen men who’d all made intentional investments into Cole’s life to assist me in considering essential traits of a Godly man. (Cole is extremely blessed to have had some incredibly Godly coaches, teachers, youth sponsors, and church friends.) They each kindly agreed to study and pray about one trait – a trait which I’d observed to be evident in their life - and then teach Cole about it during a special, surprise event for him.
This book includes Thirteen Essential Traits of a Godly Man we communicated to Cole that night, and that I continue to try to emulate and teach to him. All men would do well to pursue them with all they have.
