Jim has a special promotion going so be sure to look for it at the bottom of this post, and he's giving away a book here, too.
And now I'd like to introduce you to my husband, Jim Wysong.
At age 15, when Jim accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, he began asking questions like "how does a person live this Christian life?" He had no references from which to draw this knowledge from within his family so he asked these question to others in the church he was attending. No one really answered his question, but one answer “you just do it” sticks out in his memory.
Jim, like everyone at times, found himself doing the very thing he did not want to do any more, and like so many, found himself discouraged over it. Not settling for "this is just how I am," he kept asking questions and searching of answers to why people do what they do. What he has discovered over the last 30 years has changed his life and opened a door for anyone who wants to avoid many painful struggles and have a more enjoyable life of their own.
At a friend's suggestion, Jim began writing about what he had discovered, the result is a book entitled The Neutering of the American Male (NAM). If you would like to understand yourself, others and what drives people to do what they do. You will find this is a book you have been waiting for. Both Christian and non-Christian are affected by the elements that are explored and explained within its pages.
Jim enjoys writing, speaking and equipping others so they too can free themselves from what has been holding them back. Jim, his wife, Patty and their five children live in Illinois. If you would be interested in having him speak to your group, you can contact him through his web page.
You can find Jim online at JimWysong.com
and on Facebook.
The Neutering of the American Male
Over the last hundred years many changes have taken place that have altered how men and women related to each other. Those are often felt, but not seen clearly, or understood, which makes them difficult to remedy. As a result, confusion, frustration, and aggravation reign in the lives of many. And those raise questions that seem impossible to answer.
As a young man Jim Wysong had questions that appeared to have no answers. For over thirty years he has been seeking the answers to those questions. Contained within these pages are insights into aspects of the human experience that are easily missed.
Men and women are complex beings. Jim addresses the the key aspects that exist with both men and women and explains how those elements inter-relate and influence each other.
This book's insights can assist you in understanding yourself and others in a way that you never thought possible.
What others are saying about The Neutering of the American Male:
Family dynamics can be confusing. Jim Wysong’s book provides clear understandings for both men and women. After reading it, for the first time in my life, I understand what has been happening in my family for several generations.
This is a much needed book, which I highly recommend to everyone.
Jim has written a book that can help with issues that are hindering relationships in many families today. For those who are struggling or frustrated with the ability to understand their identity within a relationship, this book offers insights, as well as practical advice, for men and women who want to see their lives and relationships changed.
If you work with other people (and who doesn't) and desire a better understanding of yourself and them, this is a must read. Or, if you just desire a richer, fuller life with richer, fuller relationships, this will be a valuable tool.
The last thirteen years of my work experience I was involved with recruiting, screening and training people who would become missionaries to be sent to various countries around the world. In doing this work I was required to understand people, their strengths and their weaknesses, and how they could become part of a team that was being assembled or had existed for some period of time.
In doing this work there was always need for material to give to those who needed to make changes in their lives before we could agree to hire them. Also, because we worked with many young adults, there was need for in-depth training in order to help our prospective missionaries understand people and how to work with them in a multitude of circumstances including cross cultural situations.
If The Neutering of the American Male had been available for me to use in the work as stated above, my job would have been easier and more complete. The human experience is complex and difficult to understand and especially so when we consider how people interact in the home and work environments. Jim Wysong's in-depth understanding and unique explanations of human nature would have assisted me and will assist many in improving their lives and relationships.
Jim Wysong’s book raises intriguing and provoking questions concerning the nature of relationships today and the effect of social mores upon those relationships. Sociologists should look at Wysong’s book as a challenge to investigate and research his theories, whether they wish to prove him right or wrong, because he presents a new perspective on relationships from those within small family units to large community and work environments.
This book will definitely make you examine your role in relationships today.
