Every flight begins with a destination. 

by Audra Jennings Monday, January 24, 2011
In today’s culture, teenage boys are faced with navigating the turbulent journey to manhood, often without an inkling of what that really means or any direction of how to get there. What does it mean to be a man? Flight Plan: Your Mission to Become a Man, written by educators Lee Burns and Braxton Brady, offers a vision of godly manhood and a complete and honest guide into the adventures ahead.

Flight Plan uses the metaphor of a journey of flight to speak candidly to pre-teen and teen boys about friendships, peer pressure, drinking, drugs, girls and dating, puberty, sex, and school and family relationships.

Flying is an adventure. But like any journey, a good flight needs a great plan. Vision to see beyond the horizon. Preparation for the unexpected. A commitment to get from here to there. Every journey needs a plan. And becoming a man is no exception. The journey from boyhood to manhood is a big adventure filled with big choices. Some choices move us in the right direction, while others can throw us off course. So how can young men navigate to a successful life?

Like any sound flight plan, the book maps out the journey ahead giving practical advice for success and warnings for potential pitfalls any boy on his way to manhood is likely to encounter. Flight Plan shares how boys can:

• Make smart choices today that will impact their future
• Become responsible and accountable
• Handle changes in both their body and their relationships
• Understand the risks of drugs and alcohol
• Develop a God-centered life

The text strategically builds on seven biblically based virtues and each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making Flight Plan an ideal teaching tool for boys’ small groups, mentoring groups, Sunday school classes, fathers and sons, or simply individual study.
