I was so inspired by those teachers I saw, influencing their students and not giving up on them, despite their backgrounds. I also want to be like those educators who make a difference in their lives.
That's probably why I decided to review the book called: I Call Shotgun. It's about how fathers in this generation can influence their sons for the better. In this day and age, fathers have a harder job now, raising their sons since times have changed. Things are easier to get now, without having to go through a hard process (like drugs & alcohol).
The book is about fathers who long to make a positive, lasting difference in their sons' lives, passing down a legacy of values and ideals that will help them mature into men--into true men, leaders, voices of strength and wisdom for the next generation and beyond--the challenge has become more daunting than ever. I Call Shotgun is a practical playbook designed to equip dads for this vital task, increasing our influence and deepening our father-son relationships.
Written as letters from the authors to their own sons, the book's sixty-three bite-size chapters cover a wide range of territory, from courage and compassion to finance and faith, from peer pressure and purity to hard work and humility. The life lessons within these pages teach sons how to cultivate integrity, follow True North, avoid victimitis, hang with the wise, laugh at political correctness, train for adversity, seek God first, make no excuses, build productive habits, and much more.
Shooting from the heart, Tommy Newberry and Curt Beavers--men of faith, influencers, entrepreneurs, and battle-tested dads themselves--offer an engaging, highly personal collection of potent insights, a just-in-time antidote to the empty counterfeits that today's culture tries to pass off as wisdom. At the end of each chapter, simple yet carefully crafted questions invite deeper conversations between dads and sons.
Relevant to any man, but especially tailored for fathers and their teen or pre-teen sons, I Call Shotgun will help you to instill character in the boys who are growing into men right before your eyes--and it might just sharpen your own character in the process.
