Hey Man, We Just Talkin’ is a daily reader written for young men from 11-18 years old. This daily reader contains 21 passages of encouraging words that are designed to not only encourage but also challenge their assumptions about their maleness and what being a man is all about. It covers topics such as education, love, money, responsibility, grit, relationships, respect, faith, death, and many other topics from the male perspective.
The passages also include reactions from other men on the topics and how the topic has played out in their lives as men. It’s meant to be a quick read that could be used to start the day, be a mid-day encourager, or a way to end the day in reflection and growth. This book can be used by schools, mentors, parents, or groups that focus on young men as a supplement to the work you are already doing. It can also be given as a gift to a young man.
This book is not meant to diminish the role of hard-working and self-sacrificing women by any means. It’s simply meant to highlight, for young men, the important role they should and eventually play in the lives of their families and their communities as men.
