Every member of the family needs a man’s wisdom, protection, and love to fully develop. Unfortunately, fatherlessness is epidemic leaving us with “…a generation of boys, raised by women, who don’t know what it is to be a man, a husband, or father.”

Guy Thing is the fruit of 15 years of personal research on manhood, marriage, and family. These lessons turned my life around, saved my marriage, and gave me the skills I needed to raise my kids.” John King, author.
