The Promise of Provision by Derek Prince (Mandy)

I really enjoyed reading "The Promise of Provision" by Derek Prince. The author helps the reader to take a closer look at what God tells us in the Bible about His provisions for us and the abundant life He wants to give us. Many people have preconceived ideas about who, why, and how God chooses to bless. The author takes the Scripture and clearly lays out God's plan and promises for provision.
It was a very thought provoking book. Many times I would read a paragraph and then read it again to really get a hold on what the author was saying. It was easy to read and the author is very good at simply and thoroughly explaining what he wants to get across to the reader.

What A Son Needs From His Dad - Michael A. O'Donnell, PhD (Mandy)

I really enjoyed reading What A Son Needs From His Dad. It was written by Michael A. O’Donnell. It was easy to read and very informative. This book is great reminder of the important role a father plays in his son’s life. Each chapter addresses a different principle that is essential for a father to teach his son to prepare them for life. Essentials such as a good work ethic, choosing good friends, being a good citizen, preparing for marriage, growing spiritually, and others. I would recommend this book to any father, father to be, or any man with influence in a boy’s life.
