Description: Cry Like a Man PDF
His grandfather’s lynching in the deep South, the murders of his two older brothers, and his verbally harsh and absent father all worked together to form Jason Wilson’s childhood. But it was his decision to acknowledge his emotions and yield to God’s call on his life that made Wilson the man and leader he is today.
As the founder of one of the country’s most esteemed youth organizations, Wilson has decades of experience in strengthening the physical, mental, and emotional spirit of boys and men. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson explains the dangers men face in our culture’s definition of “masculinity” and gives readers hope that healing is possible.
As Wilson writes, “My passion is to help boys and men find strength to become courageously transparent about their own brokenness as I shed light on the symptoms and causes of childhood trauma and ‘father wounds.’ I long to see men free themselves from emotional incarceration—to see their minds renewed, souls weaned, and relationships restored.”
Review – Cry Like a Man PDF
“The souls of men are begging to cry and it’s time to release the pain. Cry Like a Man is a key that Jason Wilson is using to unlock the door for men of all ethnicity to release that pain through tears, transparency, and love rather than through fighting, unresolved anger, and abuse.”
— Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness
“Jason Wilson is a gift to our nation that’s enslaved by a dangerous and ridiculous understanding of masculinity. He’s coaching us how to rear real men who know that emotions empower us, growing our capacity for courage, love, faith, hope, and so much more. As the Irish proverb says, ‘Never trust a warrior who cannot cry.’ He’s creating a new kind of warrior. Learn from him. Support him. Join him.” — Paul Coughlin, founder and president of The Protectors
“I am so excited about Jason Wilson’s new book, Cry Like a Man. Through personal stories and lessons that apply to all, Wilson shows us the power of connecting with our emotions in an increasingly disconnected world. This is a must-read for any brother seeking to better understand what he feels and why and for any sister seeking to discern the same.” — Joshua Dubois, CEO of Values Partnerships
“Jason Wilson writes a new narrative in the hearts of our black boys, one that liberates them to be the whole beautiful human beings God designed them to be.” — Trabian Shorters, founder and CEO of BMe Network
“Growing up playing football, you are taught to never show weakness. No matter what the situation was, I was told to always ‘be a man’ and suck it up. Unfortunately, that mentality forced me to bottle up my emotions, causing some long-term negative effects and conflicts in my life. Jason Wilson is leading the way to freedom from emotional incarceration.” — Reggie Bush, Heisman Trophy Winner; Super Bowl Champion
Review – Cry Like a Man PDF
Long version: I love Jason Wilson. I know his ministry is targeted towards men but he still speaks to me (a black woman). My sister mentioned to me that Wilson had a book that was soon to be released. I came on Amazon over a month ago just to read the book listing. I don’t even know how it happened but I must have clicked purchase on accident because before I knew it, there was a message thanking me for my preorder. I almost cancelled the order but felt compelled to keep the order. I am a life coach and mentor for teens both male and female.Cry Like a Man PDF
I also have a younger brother and a father that I still struggle to relate to and understand. On top of all of that, I generally don’t know how to relate to men at all [romantically]. I am a daddy’s girl who has a father that really isn’t the daddy’s girl type. A lot of father’s don’t understand that they frame how their daughters will relate to men.
You are our 1st love and often our 1st heartbreak (it goes without saying… But not in a sexual or romantic way). The way that this is handled will be with us in every relationship, even our relationship with God. I thought reading Wilson’s book would feel like reading someone else’s mail but his words are so engaging that I had to force myself to not finish it in one day and let what I have read so far unfold in me before moving on.
This book has been such a healing and eye opening experience for me. I have learned more about my brother and dad and even myself from this book. I could relate to Wilson’s quest for his father’s love and approval and I became very aware through reading this book from his POV that we feel much the same, we just express our emotions differently. Cry Like a Man PDF
Maybe after thoughtfully and prayerfully reading this book, I will overcome my fear of relationships and finally have the privilege of having one. If you’re wondering if you should get this book… Yes!!! You should and grab a few extra copies for someone else who may need to cry like a man.
I have the Kindle book but I’m getting hard copies for my dad and brother and a few for my male clients as well.
