About the Author
Neal C. Lemery, JD, is a native of rural Tillamook County, Oregon, and a fourth-generation Oregonian. He has served as a Tillamook County justice of the peace, as a circuit court judge in three counties, as a municipal judge in five cities, and as a juvenile alternative court judge. He has also served as the Tillamook County district attorney, where he implemented child support collection and criminal victims’ assistance programs.
A dedicated community organizer, he has served as president of the Oregon YMCAs, the Tillamook Bay Community College Foundation, and the Oregon Justices of the Peace Association. Now retired, he continues to mentor young men incarcerated in a local prison. Lemery and his wife have been foster parents to several boys. Lemery wrote his first book, Mentoring Boys to Men, to share his experiences and to encourage others to pay attention to the plight of a lost generation of young men.

You'll also feel empowered---by Neal's honesty and integrity and love of his fellow human beings.
When I sit down and am honest with myself, THIS is what I am striving for in my life. I want to positively impact people. I am not interested in status, bank account tallies or having the "right" connections, clothing or car. I
I AM interested in living a life that is beyond mine. Neal gives us the chance to have hope for a brighter future through mentoring others.
I live with my story daily, most of the time trying to put it out of my mind so that I can help those that come to me for help. By reading this book, I am starting to see that that story is an integral part of my ability to help others - the imperfections I see in myself seem to override the imperfections of those that come to me for help. By looking at my own story, I am better able to relate to others and their own stories.
