I’m a pretty proud Daddy today… I just heard my daughter Alyssa rock her interview on Focus on the Family yesterday (we record these things months prior, so I had forgot how good she was- truly amazing).
I think my favorite part was how courageous she was… she didn’t shy away from ousting me and other parents for our part in this whole “screen dilemma” that so many adults tend to put on kids. It was good to hear a snippet of her story, something she’s goes into much more detail throughout our new book.
Last week a Christian radio network asked me to provide them with a little glimpse into my personal life, specifically the top 10 books I’ve enjoyed reading.
My first response was laughter…because my wife Lori always teases me how I don’t want to read at night. I always tell her, “Baby, after reading studies all day and writing…the LAST thing I want to do at night is more reading.”
I’m looking for some people to give me feedback about my book BEFORE it’s published
My 24-year-old daughter Alyssa and I are finishing up our last few chapters in my next book—and yes, this one I’m co-writing with her! She is bringing such an amazing perspective, I think people are really going to enjoy her vulnerability about the effect social media has had on her life.
The book is to teenagers about “face-to-face connections in a screen-to-screen world.” Alyssa and I share 40 tips to meaningful communication…that we wish we knew 5 years ago.
Would you like to read it next week? Because I’m looking for feedback… and you’ll have 10 days to peek at it.
It’s always fun when my publisher sends me a stack of my newest book fresh from the press!
It’s finally here! So excited about this book… a book TO YOUNG GUYS with a helpful strategy to face the distractions in their life: screens, sexual temptation, substances, and struggles with self esteem (who am I?) Each chapter has discussion questions making it the perfect book to go through with that young man you care about so much!
If your year has been as busy as mine… and your inbox as full as mine… then you might have missed a few things. So let me highlight a few posts you DON’T want to miss.
This year we’ve already released some really helpful articles for parents and youth workers… here’s a few really good resources already posted this year on either TheSource4Parents.com or TheSource4YM.com :
It’s funny, this is the book that parents keep buying and when I read the reviews, the common consensus is, “I bought this for my son (grandson, nephew, little brother) and he actually liked it!” (I always laugh when people are so surprised when a guy actually reads a book!)
Shout out to my editor to Kelly for setting the vision for this one!
