Publisher Comments:

andldquo;Tell them who you are!andrdquo; This is the immediate request from child advocate John Croyle to any one of the Big Oak kids when they are introduced to someone. Itandrsquo;s a declaration that who they are carries value. Value that is not defined by the circumstances that led them to be in at the Big Oak Ranch.and#160;Value that is also not defined by what you believe God can or canandrsquo;t do through you.and#160;

This is a lesson that John Croyle, his family, and the team of Big Oak Ranch have learned well. Faced with one of the most important decisions of his life andmdash; whether to play professional football or to start a childrenandrsquo;s home andmdash; John followed the Lordandrsquo;s leadership. In the decades since that decision, theyandrsquo;ve seen his dream of helping hurting kids grow into a ministry that has shaped the lives of more than 2,000 children.

and#160;

Surely we, too, would be changed to experience a ministry with this kind of legacy. This isnand#39;t a dream and a hope or the seed of a ministry. This is well scarred, deep rooted ministry that grows strong, oak tree kind of faith. Itand#39;s faith-building for the kids reached through the ministry and now for those of us who can hear the story of it.

Who You Are tells this story of the life shaping, Kingdom transforming ministry that God used one man to begin. Yet, the bigger story is in who you are and what God can do to use you in the lives of others. Come along for one incredible and improbable story of how God has worked and in doing so, truly discover how He can work through you.

Synopsis:

 A former All-American and one of today's most respected child advocates likens the final years of raising teenage boys to the two-minute drill in football — a crucial win-or-lose point where a focused game plan is needed.

Synopsis:

andquot;Tell them who you are.andquot;and#160;

This is the immediate request from child advocate John Croyle to any one of the kids living at Big Oak Ranch when they are introduced to someone new. It stands as a declaration that who they are carries value — value that is not defined by the circumstances that first led them to the ranch.and#160;This story about the difficult decision one man made that led to the life-changing, Kingdom transforming ministry that has rescued over 2,000 children, will challenge readers with a similar request — who are you? And how is God working in your life?

Synopsis:

 If you are the parent of a teenager, you are coming down to what former All-American and one of today's most respected child advocates John Croyle calls the two-minute drill. In football the last two minutes are crucial; the whole game builds to those moments that can determine the final outcome.

The Two-Minute Drill to Manhood is John's game plan that will help moms and dads make sure their sons are ready for authentic manhood. Based on Croyle's life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children on the Big Oak Ranch for Boys and Girls, as well as parenting his two biological children, he drills down into seven actionable life principles drawn from the word "manhood" itself:

M – Master

A – Ask and Listen

N – Never Compromise

H – Handle Responsibility

O – One Purpose

O – One Body

D – Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Give Up

Today the outreach has grown to three branches with the addition of a girls ranch and a Christian school. John, his wife Tee, and the Big Oak organization have raised more than 1,800 kids to date.
