2. Clean Hearts Guide
Is your heart ready for God’s work? Young men can be uniquely challenged in the area of purity – and not just related to sexual temptation. They need to be kept pure from greed, selfishness and other destructive life patterns. This guide does not focus exclusively on sexual topics, but, depending on how you handle it, those may come up. This could help you establish an age-appropriate and safe environment to discuss how men can stay untarnished by the world and be a clean, ready vessel for the Father’s use. Dads and sons will walk through this study together and learn the following:
- The Purity Principles
- Drink the Word
- Guard the heart
- Chase Righteousness
- Abide in Christ
- Act on what we’ve learned

4. Manhood Myths Guide
Do you know the four Manhood Myths? You and your son are bombarded with lies from the enemy. These lies come in some attractive forms and are often disguised behind honorable pursuits. We believe success is defined by our possessions, since after all, we are just providing for our families. Or, we justify being unloving by believing the lie of the macho, unfeeling man. This guide helps you discuss four lies to which men fall prey, and how to expose them by becoming biblical “lie detectors.” In this guide, dads and sons will learn how to be biblical lie detectors and walk through the four (4) manhood myths:
Myth #1 > Men are always strong and don’t ask for help
Myth #2 > Success is having more or doing better than others
Myth #3 > No one should impose his beliefs on anyone else
Myth #4 > God wants us to always be happy
Do you know how to handle these myths? Are you confident enough to lead through them? No worries. We can help. Learn more about the Manhood Myths Guide.
5. Working Well Guide
Working hard or hardly working? Working Well explores God’s design for careers, responsibility and productivity. Doing rewarding work is a blessing we can help our young men discover. This guide is highly relevant for young men. It will help you discuss with with your son how schooling and chores are their current “job.” Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll cover with your son through this guide:
- Seeing work through God’s eyes
- Working to develop character
- Satisfying work
- Working to serve God and others
- Resisting satan’s fiery arrows at work

This guide isn’t a career-counseling course, but may help your son or young man you’re mentoring discover what he wants to be when he grows up. Even better, you might discover who you want to be! Learn more about the Working Well Guide.
6. Leading Lessons Guide
So you want to be a leader? Leadership is a popular topic. For men, it often centers on how to lead a business or sports team. But, as we explore biblical leadership, we see patterns formed by servant leadership, loving others, serving others and putting their needs above our own. We see that leadership equals service. This guide explores the power of God in our lives and how we as leaders should pray and serve. It draws on the deep well of leadership wisdom from the Book of Proverbs. You can walk through these leadership topics:
- Why leaders make rules
- Leaders follow first
- Power > Leaders learn the art of being humbly influential
- Proverbs > Leaders are continually sharpened by wisdom
- Prayer > Leaders discover the mind of God
- Who wants to lead? Leaders must be shepherds

7. Kingdom Treasure Guide
Jesus talked more about money than He did heaven and hell, combined! Money is a critical issue for men to master. Money can be a powerful tool used for God’s glory or a destructive idol that tears us down. In this module, we discuss how God and Satan view money, how you can guard yourself against counterfeits and how you can leverage four laws of giving. This module helps you establish a biblical posture toward money as a faithful steward of God’s blessings. Learn more about the Kingdom Treasure Guide.
