From the Author
It has been Debbie Bowen’s privilege to serve as co-commander in chief, alongside her husband, in raising ten latter-day stripling warriors–six sons and four daughters. Together, they have spent more than three decades teaching and training their little band of soldiers and have had ample opportunity to test the techniques and strategies discussed in this book. As difficult as it can sometimes be, they consider their calling as generals in God’s army and their divine mandate to raise righteous children to be their greatest mission and most important battle.
