Mailbox Monday -- May 23rd


The reason why I love Mondays -- Mailbox Monday hosted this month by MariReads. This week was a light week, with only one book received:

1) First-time Dad by John Fuller. Amazon Product Description. Perhaps the most powerful influence in the world is that of a dad on his child. Baseball gloves, dirty diapers, tiny little hands, first days of school, daddy-daughter dances, and learner's permits... and so much more! There's no way you can be ready for it all, but this is when you need to get a bit of a head start...

First Time Dad by Focus on the Family ministry veteran (and father of 6) John Fuller lets you in on the stuff you really need to know... because in just a few months or weeks or days, your life is going to change--forever. Set good priorities. Break bad habits and/or family patterns. Recognize and recover from some common fathering mistakes. Know that your words have immense power. And learn how to cultivate a lasting parent-child relationship. So, instead of wondering "oh man, oh man, oh man... what am I going to do now?" for 9 months... read this short book (plus it's pretty fun too) and get excited!

"Dad, your job is critical... And you can do it."

Thanks to the Publisher!

  6. Too bad this one did not come out sooner. It would have been a great gift for my brother last year. He's a pro now ;)
