Do You Know What Makes a Man? - Del’Shawn Taylor

"Do you know what makes a man?  I am not so sure I understand."  This is the question asked by a young boy earnestly searching for the ingredients for his "manhood recipe."  But what we learns is more value than just a few characteristics as the people in his life give him vision and inspiration as he goes forth on his quest.  Join us as we venture through this tale with guest author, Del'Shawn Taylor, as he shares this story of kindness, strength, and love, as told in his first book, Do you Know What Makes a Man?.
