With Father's Day fast approaching, we've taken the opportunity to delve into several new books that examine the bond between fathers and children. Whether you're interested in a gift for Dad or a chance to ponder the importance of a father's role, these four selections offer meaningful ways to mark the occasion.
Keeping his priorities straight
Offer dad a little love and encouragement with My List: 24 Reflections on Life's Priorities, an inspiring book that will get him to focus on the important things in life. Based on the hit country single written by Nashville tunesmiths Rand Bishop and Tim James, the book will help readers put the song's powerful message into play. With a foreword by singer Toby Keith, who made the single a chart-topper, the book advises readers to set and achieve simple goals that can make life more fulfilling, including going for a walk, playing catch with the kids and sleeping late. It's a rewarding little read, filled with sparkling photos, Bible verses and memorable quotes, that's just right for stressed-out dads. And the enclosed CD of the single will keep him humming.
