Interview with Russ Crosson about Raising Sons

Written by Wisdom Hunters

This wonderful conversation explores raising up daughters in Christ.


  1. Shelli Robison says:

    Thank you for your words of wisdom. These videos are helpful.

    One sidenote, though…the background music is a little too loud and actually rather distracting for hearing what you all have to say.

    The WORDS are excellent advice.

    Boyd – thank you for your Wisdom Hunters devotional messages. They really help me to think and meditate on scriptures. And Russ – thank you for your candid interview here. Great advice for fathers and mothers.

  2. Max says:

    Shelli, Thanks so much for your feedback. We will be sure and tone down the background music in the future, the last thing we want is for it to take away from the content.


  3. Sandra S says:

    We raised 3 sons and one special needs daughter. I was venturesome and we gave our sons and daughter the best education and world travel experiences possible and stood by them every exciting moment of their life enjoying their experiences as well. 2 sons have MBA and the other a BS and are doing well. One is christian and the others have seemed to have lost their way. My husband and I appear to be last on the list of life. I guess what they say is correct. “What goes around comes around” I should have been more concerned about my aging parents and offered them more attention in their later years of life even though they lived in another state………Sad ….and observing the go- around

  4. Leah says:

    Thank you, thank you for sharing the wisdom that God has put into your hearts. By any chance, is any of this in print–particularly the charts? I wonder if this isn’t something that could be addressed in Sunday School when kids have gotten beyond the bible stories and need application lessons. And equally, mothers need help with their adolescent-aged daughters who are even more relentless at pushing all the buttons.

  5. Janet T says:

    Thank you for the wonderful advise. Wondering if/where we might get to see those charts? 🙂 We, too, find these types of things helpful when working w/ our boys.
    Thanks for encouraging parents everywhere.


  6. Ann Thompson Coggins says:

    I am so thankful to have this resource. Russ- Brilliant words of wisdom! Boyd, I really needed the encouragement and I knew I would find it here. Russ, I loved your quote and would love to have a copy if you do not mind sharing it…valuable words.

    I have two children, one who is now 21 and we were told would never walk or talk. A second child who would never live past infancy…today our first child will participate in his 7th Peachtree Road Race with his walker and my daughter, who’s parents were issued “end of life counseling” when she was a baby, is now 13 years old and is joyful, full of life yet blind and she is in no way done living. Life is tough and life is good. You do the very best with all that you have and then you search and search again for encouragement. I only need just enough to get the job done soooo again ….thank you for all the encouragement you give. So very thankful for you, the Stanleys, Russ and this message.
    Much love and thank you as always,

  7. Nancy A. Hernandez says:

    How can I get these charts? Please…. I’m a single mother of 9, 6 being boys. I still have 4 boys and a girl at home. I feel I didn’t do too well with the older ones, and find myself trying to make it up. I don’t want to make the same mistakes with the other ones. I enjoyed the tips that Russ gave in the interview and would love to read or hear more, but don’t know where.I also would love the charts. Thank You and please help.

  8. Debbie says:

    I, too, would like to request where I can view the mentioned charts. Raising three sons, we delight in sharing the experience with God-fearing parents who have similar goals for their own sons. I’m so thankful for the mentally visual goal God placed before me early on…that we were raising Knights and Warriors for HIS Kingdom! Heading toward that goal has required many, many decisions opposite of societal norms. But with the end result always on our mind, the path has been clearly directed!

  9. Carmella Pichon says:

    I really enjoyed this interview. My husband and I are trying to raise two sons age 13 and 15 in this heathenistic world and it can be very challenging. Mainly because they are constantly bombarded with teaching that are contrary to our beliefs. As a result, we pray the blood of JESUS over them each day before school. We will continue to pray for all the parents that are diligently raising children according the the will of the Lord. Be Blessed! Also, I too would love to have a copy of the the dating chart Russ gave to his sons.

  10. Sylvia says:

    Thank you so much for the Godly education. I am a single mother of two boys 19 and 11 yrs old. I would also, like to obtain this information in written form if at all possible. I do have one request. God has blessed me with a wonderful christian man that has come into our lives. He has never been married nor has children of his own and would love to have Godly information to help him in his walk of stepfather. He takes this role very serious, has Joseph did with Jesus. God Bless you both.
