Steven Arms is a co-author of the book Milestone to Manhood: A Christian Rite of Passage to Help Your 13-Year-Old Son Make the Leap from Boyhood to Manhood. Steven shares his firsthand experience of his Rite of Passage weekend, how it shaped him into the man that he is today, and provides other fathers with tools needed to organize a Rite of Passage for their own sons. Steven lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Emily, and is the proud father of two young children.
Milestone to Manhood shows how fathers of pre-teen boys can help their sons to successfully make the transition from boyhood to manhood. It is a father’s responsibility to bestow the title of “man” on his son, and the book outlines a once-in-a-lifetime weekend to help a father do so. The weekend involves the other male role models in the son’s life as well, like his grandfather, uncles, and older brothers, who all participate in order to make it clear to the boy that he is now considered to be a man. This coming-of-age ceremony is called his Rite of Passage. Visit www.milestonetomanhood.com for more information.
