Harvest House Publishers

A powerful and compelling new voice in Christian publishing, with a message urgently needed by today’s Christian men.

Every man encounters significant struggles in life—struggles that result in poor choices and decisions. Frequently these mistakes can be traced back to a common problem—a father who (even unintentionally) failed to provide counsel or a positive role model.

In What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him, author Byron Yawn offers vital input many men wished they had received during their growing-up years. This collection of 30 simple principles will help men to...

  • Identify and fill the gaps that occurred in their upbringing
  • Benefit from the hard-earned wisdom of others so they don’t make mistakes
  • Prepare their own sons for the difficult challenges of life

The 30 principles in this book are based in Scripture and relevant to every man. They include affection, courage, balance, consistency, and more. A true must-read!

“Boys don’t become men when they reach a certain age or accomplish a particular task.  Boys become men when they start living out the godly masculine attributes Byron Yawn points us to in this needed book.  Fathers who are raising sons to be men will find help here.  So will all of us who are still striving to be the men God has made us to be.”Bob Lepine, Co-Host, FamilyLife Today
