Brooke McGlothlin knows what it’s like to want to wave the white flag and just give up the fight for the hearts of her sons. But God has called mothers to get in the battle. So how do we do that in the most effective way?

By coming alongside them in prayer.

Author of Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most

From fun boy mom humor, to insightful biblical wisdom, Brooke helps mothers of boys discover their value and power as praying moms.

  • Instead of hovering, we can provide prayer covering, empowering our boys with our prayers.
  • When they’re still too young to guard their own hearts, we can do it for them through our prayers.
  • When they’re older and making their own decisions, we can give our sons confidence to boldly embrace life, knowing mama is prayerfully protecting every step.
  • When we can’t control their behavior, we can help shape their heart with our prayers

About Brooke

Brooke McGlothlin is Co-founder of Raising Boys Ministries, where moms and dads come to discover delight in the chaos of raising boys. You can find her writing about fighting for the hearts of her sons at the MOB Society blog, or living a life in pursuit of Jesus at her personal blog www.brookemcglothlin.com. A normal day finds Brooke homeschooling her two boys, wrangling two large Labs, Toby and Siri, writing to bring hope to the messes of life (in the midst of her own messy life), and falling more and more in love with the man she’s had a crush on since the third grade (who just happens to be her husband).

“Brooke’s words on prayer have been an inspiration to me as I raise three boys. Praying for Boys has challenged me to get on my knees and cry out to God for my sons in ways I never had before—boldly, expectantly, persistently, passionately. My mama heart has been changed.”

Erin Mohring, co-founder of Raising Boys Media


“As a mom it is a necessity and a privilege to bring our children to God through prayer. Brooke has created a fantastic resource to encourage and help us along the way. Praying for Boys is a must-have for every boy-mom!”

Ruth Schwenk, speaker, writer, and creator of thebettermom.com


“With a heart for praying God’s Word and a vision for raising up the next generation of godly men, I’ve been given a gift through Brooke’s Praying for Boys. With three teen sons, I yearn for authentic encouragement and biblical wisdom that points me to the cross—Brooke does just that.”

Jen Schmidt, author of the blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam


“While our sons grow tall, wearing out the knees on their jeans from tumble and play, we mothers too find our fabric worn thin from kneeling in prayer for our soon-to-be men. Brooke’s practical book, full of vulnerable sharing and deeply rooted in God’s Word, will become a useful tool as you seek to make prayer a priority and model for your boys just how to run hard after Jesus.”
