“Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children”

Proverbs 17:6

I’m crazy about my grandkids.  Nothing has brought me more joy and happiness than being alongside them as they grow up.

Because I feel so blessed that God would give me the opportunity to pass along the things I’ve learned (in my almost seventy years on this planet) about how to live an emotionally, relationally, and spiritually healthy life, I’ve decided to write Pop’s Advice for my ‘Munchkins’.

My prayer is that it will help them to better understand some things about their ‘Pop’ and, hopefully, about themselves.

I’d be honored to share it with you, your children, and your grandchildren as well…

“Blessed with the opportunity to write several self-help books over the years, including The Lies We Believe, the idea for writing Pop’s Advice came from feeling nudged by God to write something for my grandkids that might benefit them long after I’m gone.”
