Listen to what dads are saying about BRAVE:

"I am very excited about the nationwide roll out of BRAVE I have been using the material with my elementary aged son, and it has created some strong spiritual conversations. It is well written, biblically sound, and easy to use. Because of its impact, our Men's Ministry has chosen BRAVE as the foundational material for our Father-Son ministry. Excited to see what God does through this program!"

TJ Morelli, Dad and Pastor of Men's Ministry, Austin Ridge Bible Church

“Up to this point Sunday School at our church has been the main spiritual discussion starter for me and my son. We started BRAVE and he has shown so much enthusiasm for learning more of the Bible! Also, it’s amazed me how much easier applying the Bible has been for both of us. I really appreciate the work that's been put into this content and how much the weekly emails have inspired me to be intentional about discussing biblical things with my son. I'll forever be grateful.”

Allen

“I know it is my job and my desire to point my son towards God and to make sure he builds the right relationship with our Father. The problem is I am often intimidated by how to go about it. I am not sure how to find verses that apply or how to package them to impact my son. BRAVE provides a great framework and helps steer me to what I should be introducing to my son and on what timeline. Because it is you partnering with other dads you are not alone in the process. This team approach also helps as it allows the dads to feed off one another and support one another. Lastly it seems to have the right mix of fun and message. Over the last 2 years my son cannot wait for each one of our sessions to happen.“

BRAVE means 2 things to me, first, a way to connect 1:1 with my son about God and His will for our lives, and second that my son learns from a young age that it is important and normal to journey through life's triumphs and struggles in the company of other good men. Jesus did not go it alone, and neither should we as the Bible clearly states: "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up."

BRAVE will help make you a better Dad and in return it will provide a simple and easy way to shepherd your son and teach him that God has a great plan for him and that he has given all of us men a spirit of boldness, the spirit to BE BRAVE!

“It has been so encouraging to have other dads walk along side me, even with all our baggage, as we all seek to raise a Godly generation. It can be discouraging to look around and see the ideologies (rather, the idolatries) that the world offers up. We have abandoned the society filled with “citizens” and have replaced it with a society filled with “consumers”. That is a tough identity. That is where BRAVE comes in! It has been a wonderful…intentional…tool that I’ve been able to work with to love my boys better and deeper. It goes against the grain of what society offers. It highlights the power and the all-importance of the Gospel of our Savior in our daily lives. I’m excited to see fruit continue to grow not only with my boys, but in my marriage and my walk as well.”

I want to raise a son who loves God and loves people. But, I’m a busy dad (aren’t we all?), and I didn’t know how to relate God’s Word to my son’s life.

But, BRAVE changed that with its scripture-based lessons that are content-rich but short enough for my son’s attention span.

I’m thankful for BRAVE because it provides exactly what I need to model a Christian walk (reading, praying, and talking) as the norm and not an exception. Plus, we have deeper conversations and more quality time together. Thanks BRAVE!
