You might’ve noticed some changes to the MOB Society’s BoyRaiser newsletter over the past couple of months, specifically when it comes to getting our prayer calendar.
We know you love it (and we’re thrilled!), so I thought I’d take a moment today to tell you about the new direction our newsletter is taking (and if you’re not signed up for it, give you an opportunity to get that way!).
As we move into our next season of ministry as a nonprofit, The BoyRaiser newsletter will be one of our main ways to communicate with you. In the past, it’s been one large newsletter that goes out once a month, but we feel that format no longer suits the needs of our community, so we’re making some changes.
Here’s what you can expect from the BoyRaiser as we move forward:
Our goal in everything we do at Raising Boys Ministries is to encourage and equip parents as they raise godly men. The BoyRaiser will be an extension of that goal, providing you with practical, biblical tools related to raising boys.
We love this blog, but honestly, we feel like we can really get to know you—your hopes, dreams, fears, and concerns for your boys—through our newsletter. It feels more personal…like we’re having a real conversation. So instead of one big, long newsletter each month that overwhelms you, we’re going to do our best to begin a real conversation, sending you your favorite pieces of the original BoyRaiser (and some brand new ones!) in bite-sized pieces throughout the month you can chew on and digest.
One important change to the BoyRaiser is that the monthly prayer calendar will NOT be in it anymore. We know, we know…that’s the reason many of you signed up for it in the first place. **We want to assure you that there will still be opportunity (starting in March) to get the prayer calendar each month from a new and exciting program we have coming up** (we’re making an announcement about it soon), and there will still be plenty of amazing stuff coming your way through the BoyRaiser, so hang in there!
With that in mind, you can expect the following things every month:
1. Recommended Reads.
We love sharing what’s hot in current reads! Each month, we’ll send you a recommended reads list of 1-2 books you really need to get your hands on (both for you, and for your boy).
2. Media Minute
Need help knowing what games are good or bad? What music your kids need to listen to or stay away from? Movies that can teach a valuable lesson? You’ll love our media minute feature!
3. The Man Cave
Sometimes it helps to have a dad’s perspective on raising boys, especially when you’re going it alone (physically or spiritually). This feature is designed to support you from a male perspective as you raise your boys!
4. The BEST of The MOB Society.
These are the articles that stole the show, and made the biggest impact on the hearts of boymoms from the MOB Society’s archives. If you’re new to our community, this will be a special treat! Every few days, we’ll send you the best of the best to help you get to the heart of mothering boys.
5. Special Events!
As a member of our BoyRaiser community, you’ll receive news of special events (like dates for the next Fight Like a Boymom program), and new resources before anyone else! We’ll also keep you informed about ways you can stay connected with me and Erin as we speak on behalf of Raising Boys Ministries! Who knows? Maybe we’ll see you this year!
6. Partnership Opportunities!
In the next year, we’re hoping to unleash all kinds of ways you can personally get involved with what’s happening at Raising Boys Ministries. The BoyRaiser will be THE place to stay in the know!
BONUS: When you sign up, you’ll receive this beautiful lock screen prayer verse for your computer or phone (look for it in your welcome email). It’s perfect to pray over your boys every day, and you’ll receive a new prayer lock screen with every change of season!

For the Boys!
Brooke McGlothlin is co-founder and President of Raising Boys Ministries. She’s a mother of two boys who believes God has chosen her to fight for the hearts of her sons. She can be found most often on her knees in prayer, not because she’s so holy, but because God is. Not because she knows how to raise godly men, but because she believes in the God who loves them more than she does.
