Raising boys isn't easy. Life with them is loud. If it's quiet, they're probably up to something. Boys are messy, competitive, fearless, and proud. Living with them pretty much guarantees that you're in for an adventure. In Boy-sterous Living, Jean shares a few of the priceless stories and laugh-out-loud lessons that she and her boys have experienced over the years. With humorous insight and practical advice, she offers encouragement and ideas to help both mothers and fathers impact and shape the lives of their sons. From understanding their love of sports to overcoming the superman complex, Jean shows moms how to find joy and contentment in everyday life by celebrating the laughter, passion, noise, and endless energy boys bring to our lives.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am married to Zane and have three boys, Josh, Jordan and Jake. I'm also the publishing manager for MOPS International. I live in Boulder and enjoy skiing, biking, hiking, reading and going to movies, and Italian food...and chocolate.
What was your motivation behind this project? I love raising boys and have so many great stories from our own family and other families of boys I wanted to share these stories to encourage families raising boys to absolutely love it.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope parents of boys will completely enjoy the adventure, passion, humor and energy boys bring to life. I also hope those women raising boys will gain some insight and perspective from some of my personal experiences.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I've been surprised by the number of women seeking information on how to raise boys and I've felt honored to share some of what I've learned and experienced and have a new appreciation for the position God has put me in.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? First and foremost, the boys I live with. My husband Zane, and my three, now teenage, boys. They make great writing material. I enjoy reading writers who have a sense of humor and yet also touch on deeper topics.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Boys are a blast!
