    I was in the store the other day and found "The Resolution for Men" which is a book that is coming out with in conjunction with "Courageous". It's a book for men on how to live the life that God wants us to live and be leaders in our families. I've only read the first few chapters so far, but I've been impressed with it so far. I think the principles are sound.

    The Introduction to the Book provides a resolution for men to follow. It goes like this:

    The Resolution

    "I DO solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my children."

    "I WILL love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the Spiritual Leaders of my Home."

    "I WILL be faithful to my wife, to love and honor her, and be willing to lay down my life for her as Jesus Christ did for me."

    "I WILL bless my children and teach them to love God with all their hearts, all of their minds, and all of their strength."

    "I WILL teach them to honor authority and live responsibily."

    "I WILL confront evil, pursue justice, and love mercy."

    "I WILL pray for others and treat them with kindness, respect, and compassion."

    "I WILL work diligently to provide for the needs of my family."

    "I WILL forgive others who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged."

    "I WILL learn from my mistakes, repent of my sins, amd walk with integrity as a man answerable to God."

    "I WILL seek to honor God. be faithful to His Church, obey His Word, and do His will.

    "I WILL courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His Glory."

    "'As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.'" (Joshua 24:15)​

    I was wondering whether anyone else has read this or what your thoughts are about this? There is also "The Resolution for Women" but I didn't see it at the store and I dont know what's in it.
