Kelly shared a wonderful post on Real Men, linking this post as the one that set her thinking...
What great posts! I'm not saying go read and start some mental checklist of what your husband is or isn't, but it's well worth reading and giving some prayerful thought to.
The sharings there are what most mothers want for their sons to grow and become, and what most mothers want for their daughters to marry.
And sadly, what we usually find lacking in today's society. Families not raising the generations to lead and protect the future families. Parents not knowing what to do to train up those real men, those rocks making up the foundations of real families.
These are wonderful glimpses of what we would each hope to raise :)
