A Voice for Men

My journey to manhood has been a lifelong process, and is still a work in progress.  In the last 10 years I’ve come to grips with what I didn’t know in terms of being a man, what I wasn’t taught at home, and many of the societal challenges of being men in general.  I’ve learned a lot over the years through reading and talking to other men, and I then I recently stumbled on Paul Elam’s “A Voice for Men”.  Actually I found his “Ear for Men” channel on YouTube first.  It’s must see content and reading for all men.  Ladies this content may not sit well with you, but it’s important information nonetheless, and it’s for men – one of the few resources of its kind in today’s world.
