Talk Now and Later: How to Lead Kids Through Life’s Tough Topics; A Book Review

While Casey was pregnant with Sam, I lamented with a pastor at church about wanting to read parenting books by them. Especially Pastor Rod. I had watched their kids grow up, and some still are, and they're good kids. There must be a secret... One pastor did write a book, drawing from his own parenting journey and as a pastor in kids and student ministry. When we dedicated Sam, it was one of the books gifted to us.

To Grad From Dad by Dan John; Book Review

Dan John is known as a strength coach. He's also a dad to two daughters, and a few years ago, he wrote a book for his oldest daughter. It was a hit, and friends convinced him to release it to the public. 

In 42 pages, he covers a gamut of parental advice. I read it over Father's Day weekend because well, Samuel. Anything I could learn to teach him would make the $2.99 worth it.
