I didn’t feel like a man until I was thirty-one. That sounds like an odd thing to say, even by today’s standards, when adolescence extends well beyond the teenage years. You would think by the age of thirty-one the struggle to feel like a man would be long over. But it wasn’t. Life moved forward without ever giving me that defining moment when I could say, “Now I am a man.” Days added on to weeks that added on to months that added on to years, and now I was thirty-one. Which, when you say it out loud, is an age when you should feel like a man.
That’s how Nate Pyle’s book, Man Enough begins. I loved my conversation with Nate. He is articulate about the struggles that men face, and he is vulnerable about his own struggles. You’re going to love this conversation and I hope you also love his book.
Enjoy! (If you can’t see the player below, simply click here to listen to it).
