I know you. You're busy. You feel like you're in over your head. When you hear about a father-son retreat, maybe you think, "Great, just another THING to add to my calendar." Here's the deal: this weekend is one for the ages. It's NOT like any other weekend. You'll see.
So, I get it. Finding time to really connect with your son rarely happens. Work, school, sports—heck—even church stuff. Factor all of this stuff in and who has time to binge-watch stuff on Netflix. My goodness! : )
Seriously, if you think about it—when's the last time you truly connected with your son? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you see your kids after work and even on the weekends. But, what's that time look like—for the most part? Driving to another game. Running to and from school or church activities. Or how about my least favorite—another kids' birthday party! Grabbing some food or forgetting an errand. When's the last time you connected? Not just been in the same room together? Take a moment to answer. I'll wait. : )
This is it. Your chance to look pretty stinkin' cool in your sons' eyes—and let's be honest—you don't have to do a ton of work. Just register and show up. Boom. Done. Shh, we won't tell your son! Let's carve out 24 hours on May 17-18th to be at Country Lake Retreat Center for Project: MANHOOD.
What is Project: MANHOOD?
Glad you asked. Project: MANHOOD is the father-son retreat for building godly men. This is our third year and we just keep making it better! I'll tell you more in the coming days. For now, just know that if you register by midnight March 31st, you'll save 10 percent—just use the code PM10:
