He reminds us of those simple truths that make life joyous and the deep values that carry us across the chasm of adversity. Sharing the wisdom of his years and experience, he brings the reader to greater understanding of God and a Christian world-view - gently, winsomely. He has created a book to treasure, one to return to time and again.
Audrey Jeanne Roberts' beautiful illustrations are a perfect accompaniment for these thoughts. Her depictions of masculine subjects, rendered with the same fine hand she used to illustrate As Grandma Says: Timeless Words to Live By, beckon one to spend a little extra time savoring each offering.
This is a book I will treasure for years and will be sharing it with those I love.
'If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well' and 'you can't keep a good man down'.
I found myself turning to this at days end as a treat, comforted by the familiar and stirred by the new.
I look forward to gifting my loved ones with copies of this book. There is a lot between it's covers worth passing on.
Definitely a read worthy of 5 stars :-)
From the first page to the last, you are welcomed and invited to share in the fullness of wisdom garnered by Nick Harrison who clearly adores his role as father and grandpa. Honesty and encouragement percolate through the pages of this delightful book. The combination of quotes, stories and scripture are like "a cord of three strands" connecting and reinforcing the anecdote.
The delicious artwork of Audrey Jeanne Roberts creates a perception of peace and contentment on each page.
A book to be read and reflected upon, to be shared and enjoyed, and to encourage remembering your own "grandpa" stories, this is a perfect gift for a beloved man in your life.
So pour a cup of tea and....Happy Reading!
He shares lessons learned in this collection of stories from his memories. "If you wish for good advice, consult an old man."--A Romanian Proverb. A quote and a Bible verse compliment Nick Harrison's wisdom on the golden toned pages with colorful illustrations by Audrey Jeanne Roberts.
As Grandpa Says is not only for grandpas, but for anyone who desires to live an honorable life and aspires to leave a legacy to future generations.
This short book with Audrey Jeanne Roberts's artwork provides a delightful reminiscence of life and it's values.
In a soft, refreshing way, Harrison emphasizes what made him who he is and what he's doing to instill the right attitude in his own grandchildren.
Thanks, Nick, for your gift of words. I believe God will use this book in the lives of our grandchildren and it will encourage us to share our words of wisdom with them as well.
