Other Helpful Resources

If you have daughters that need a good book to explain some of the courtship principles, here is a good one. Sarah Mally uses a story about a princess and an alligator to explain how she guards her heart and rejects suitors that have no substance.

Sarah created the Bright Lights curriculum and knows how to communicate to the heart of early teens. This book is available at Vision Forum.


This book is not about courtship. It is about raising a man in today's environment. It challenges fathers to raise sons purposefully and according to Biblical principles. One of the themes is embracing the model of manhood demonstrated by Christ and rejecting Adam's pattern. It causes you to look strategically over the long-term at how you will raise a man from a boy. This book gives you a much broader plan that you can integrate courtship into. It can be found a www.rmdk.com or at Amazon.com

Relationship development is a key to having a successful courtship. Some of the resources I have found useful are:
* a list of questions to help you see the heart of your child can be found here
* a number of articles on being a leader in the home, fulfilling life roles and forming the purposes of your home can be found here.
