What would it be like to grow up on a farm in the Midwest during the 1950's when farmers had just emerged from World War Two and working with horses, to farming with tractors and new farm machinery? How might farm life be reviewed through the eyes of a grown man looking back at his boyhood? How would a grandfather explain life on his childhood farm to his grandchildren? Robert L. Tasler entertains children of all ages with delightful narrative and illustrations in a nostalgic review of his own life.
One was the greatest rock band of all time, another was a misunderstood poet and Christian convert, and the latter is called, "America's Pastor." The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham were the three forces of artistic and spiritual expression in Archer's childhood, and the trio of figures in her father's conversion to Christianity and life's work.
Finding Home with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham is Archer's true account of growing up inside the world of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. For fifteen years her family traversed the globe to prepare cities for Billy Graham's large-scale, sweeping evangelistic meetings. This book details the gritty struggles she faced as the new kid in town and the intense anxiety of their transitory life. With humor, insight, and help from two of the greatest musical forces on the planet, Archer explores the universal question, "Where is home?" Through her father's boss, Billy Graham, she finds her way toward the answer to that question.
As a grandparent, parent, or mentor, you help write the biographies of those whom you love or care for by what you teach them verbally and what you model for them. Worth Helms has captured 106 lessons he hopes to help teach his grandchildren and other mentees in the form of what he calls "Blocks." When integrated and cemented together, these "Blocks" form a foundation upon which your mentees can build a solid, well-supported life. Many of the lessons come from his own mentors and experiences which serve as illustrations. As an endorser of the book says: "Learn this book's contents the way learning occurs best: teach it to someone you love and make its lessons outlast you."
