Guest: Rhonda Stoppe
On today’s edition of Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk, Rhonda Stoppe (pronounced STOP-ee), author of Moms Raising Sons to Be Men, warns "it is possible for a mother to deny a boy his manhood as he grows up." And if she does, Stoppe says he’ll become a mama's boy, and will still be sitting on the couch when he’s 40 years old. Especially as a boy enters puberty, he needs to answer to his father, or, if a dad is not in the picture, then a godly man who will affirm him in his masculinity.
When her 6-year-old son, Brandon, had to be life-flighted to the hospital after a severe seizure, Rhonda Stoppe (pronounced STOP-ee), author of Moms Raising Sons to Be Men, was ready to walk away from the faith when God didn’t heal him. But the Lord reminded her of Scripture that says, "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God and Christ Jesus concerning you." Just as the Lord sent the bear and the lion to prepare David to defeat Goliath, she believes that God used Brandon’s medical issues as a way for him to spend time at home watching their worship team practice, igniting his interest in music. Brandon went on to become a worship leader in Riverside, CA.
