Becoming Like Them: Planting Seeds - One Pumpkin at a Time

 
9781478750598: Becoming Like Them: Planting Seeds - One Pumpkin at a Time

"Son, wake up. I need to give someone a ride and I'd like you to come along." Those were the words that startled me one night, at about 1:00 a.m. We lived along a highway and a fellow had stopped at our house, having been abandoned by his partner, and needing a ride. With sleepy eyes I climbed in the back seat. Throughout the ride my dad engaged the fellow in conversation, getting to know him, offering encouragement, and giving fatherly advice. We made it to the interstate, but my dad kept going the extra miles to his home so the man wouldn't have to search for another ride. In awe of the love shown by a total stranger, the man asked how he could repay. My father then touched me and future recipients of his greatness, by replying, "Just do the same for the next person in need." In this book, you will be exposed to great parenting! My parents have basically lived in the same, small farming community their whole lives. Yet their love for others has touched people of all ages, across the country, and even in foreign lands. Their good deeds roll on in a wave of meaningful humanity. Experience their humble lives as you journey through characteristics like: caring for those in need; gardening to the max; gratitude in all things; love of country; and, there are no favorites, but I think it's me. Ponder on the memories of your own family as you stroll through mine. Then, make your world a better place through application of the lessons learned from two great parents. In fact, Become Like Them!

About the Author:

This is Richard's first book. He chose to write of the most meaningful topic he could think of - the impact his parents have left on him, and everyone else they have come in contact with. Richard has been married to the love of his life, Vikki, for 27 years, and they currently reside in Sheridan, Wyoming, where he works as a school administrator. They are the proud parents of four, and the spoiling grandparents of six little ones. They are both very active in their church organization and are always looking for ways to serve in their community. He loves working with young people and has coached them in sports, led them on foreign excursions, and worked with them in church youth groups. Richard's family enjoys camping, hiking, fishing, riding ATVs, working, playing games, traveling, and just spending time together. As a son, and now a father, he truly recognizes the valuable gift of belonging to a special family. Each day as he remembers his parents, he strives to Become Like Them!
