Turning boys into men of God (45 Mins)


Turning boys into men of God

by Chad Watterson | LDS Homeschool Conference 2012

Does it concern you that males in their 20’s and 30’s are playing video games all day? Some males in our society seem to be floundering. They are the subjects of jokes on television. Their traditional role has been marginalized. Many are of adult age, but they do not behave like men, they behave like boys.  Historically, teen aged boys in our society were regularly taking on the role of men, hacking a living out of the wilderness and taking on personal and familial responsibilities. We see this same pattern in the church and the scriptures as well. The Lord has often called youth to do great works for Him. He gives priesthood power and responsibilities to twelve year olds. He wants to help you raise boys that become men.  If you are raising and educating boys that you want to become Godly men instead of boys in an adult body, come join Chad Watterson for a lively discussion of what it takes to turn boys into men of God. Learn patterns from the scriptures and examples from history on what it takes to turn a boy into a man.

Chad Watterson has been a leader in the church Young Men’s program for the last 18 years, mentoring young men in Utah, Colorado and Nevada. He is the father of 3 boys who know how to step up and do hard things for God and family. He resides in Wanship, UT with his wife, sons, two collie dogs, a milk cow and his prized garden.
