Cry Like a Man
As a leader in teaching, training, and transforming boys in Detroit, Jason Wilson shares his own story of discovering what it means to 'be a man' in this life-changing memoir. 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.

Quotes from Cry Like a Man
What Others are Saying...
Reggie Bush, Heisman Trophy Winner; Super Bowl Champion
'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.'
Chris Broussard, NBA analyst and broadcaster; FOX Sports
'Jason Wilson’s incredible interactions with young boys will make you cry. Exhibiting strength in all its forms—physical, emotional, spiritual—he connects with the students at Detroit’s Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy in a way that both empowers and inspires them to strive for their wildest dreams and to know with certainty that they are indeed attainable. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson shares his remarkable journey through unspeakable loss to wholeness and fulfillment. Every young man needs a Jason Wilson in his life. Through Cry Like a Man, many will find one.'
Rodney Bullard, Vice President of Community Affairs, Chick-fil-A, Inc.; Executive Director, Chick-fil-A Foundation
'Jason Wilson is a transformational leader with a God-given ability to stand conventional wisdom on its head, unearthing the power found in struggle, pain, and compassion. Jason’s life is an authentic testament to the manner, in which God uses trials, tears, and triumph to purge trauma and life’s losses from the hearts of men. The truth found within this book will empower men of all ethnicities with the tools needed to break free from emotional incarceration.'

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. 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. 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.

Thank you Mr Jason Wilson for being the man you are and writing this book. I resonate with your words so much, not only did I get so much confirmations, but am also inspired to be a good man of God and fight the good fight.
I truly believe every fatherless son needs to read this book, as we are all crying out loud for the same help. ..#GraceLife
