Last weekend I was privileged to speak up in the Washington, D.C. area to a group of men at McLean Bible Church. While spending time with these guys, I got to share some bullet points with them that I had written down in the past on what it looks like to be God’s man and what it looks like to be God’s woman. While reading through the following email exchange I recently had with one of my new friends at McLean, I thought it would be a helpful resource to all to have these available on the blog. Links to the PDFs are below at the end of this post; feel free to use them in your lives and when discipling your children as well.
Also, join with me in praying for the men of McLean Bible Church. You can see what the men of this church have been up to in becoming spritual leaders, as well as view the talks from each of the sessions there last week here.

Subject: mens conference: 5 things to share with your kids
Thank you so much for coming to speak at McLean Bible Church this weekend for the men’s retreat. I really appreciate that you were frank about the real struggles that we face as men and giving practical tips on what to do.
I spoke with you at the conclusion of the conference and asked you about the five things that you share with your own girls to lead them into being women of God.
This was the flip side of the 5 things you mentioned in your message for sharing with your boys (step up, speak out, stand firm, stay humble, serve the King).
You told me to send you an email and you would send me a link to this information.
I really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.
Keep up the good work!

Xxxxx…it was great being with you guys last weekend! I’ve attached some PDFs that should be helpful for you…one for men and one for women. Hope you get the chance to use these and be blessed by what God’s Word says about biblical manhood and biblical womanhood.
Praying for all of you out there at McLean!
