Whetstone Boys Ranch is an incredible organization that I’ve seen change boys’ lives firsthand. The focus on work, education and life skills makes a huge impact in the lives of young boys who are struggling in their normal environments. The time they spend at Whetstone hits a “reset” button and also helps them understand themselves better so they can better face their struggles. I’ve become Facebook friends with several of the young men who have been through the program and can see the changed lives as they go home and are reunited with their family!
I’ve also been able to see many of the staff and their families up close. These men and women don’t just teach lessons but lead by the example of their everyday lives. They truly are a blessing to know and be around. They’re also valuable members of our church and have a heart for building up others. The young men at Whetstone surely learn a lot from the authentic lives they see in the staff!
I can’t say enough about the quality of people at Whetstone and the work that it does. It’s a place that God uses to impact young men and change the direction of their lives. If you’re looking for a place that can help your son, I can’t think of a better place than Whetstone for healing, development and change.

There is much work that takes place on the grounds of Whetstone Boys Ranch that we may never see. But what I do know and have witnessed myself is the transformation of a young boy feeding on trouble to a young man hungry for God’s love. In this sense, Whetstone’s mission is realized when each boy graduates from the program; however, Whetstone Boys Ranch’s vision is accomplished when a young man leaves the ranch seeking opportunities to share God’s love in the service of others. I cannot think of a more worthy cause.
