Great for girls, too! Jul 14, 2008
We went through this book with our 3 daughters because we believe a good work ethic is important to girls as well as boys! Each chapter is easy to complete in one sitting and discuss. Questions at the end of the chapters spurred discussion that helped us make application in daily situations. My husband is a pastor and he felt the theology of this topic was excellent and well presented. Our daughters always wanted Dad to read another chapter! We're recommending it to all our friends!
One of a kind Apr 17, 2008
I haven't found anything out there like this book. It is a wonderful devotional for both boys and girls, and has a way of both convicting and encouraging - but without you actually telling your kids these things yourself! I've spent evenings where my younger ones have volunteered all kinds of ideas for ways of spending their time productively. This casts sloth in a whole new light for the olders (who have entered the temptations of "teen-tiredness".) Fun gets them going, but not industry. This books puts the highlight on lives truly given over to His purposes. Wonderful aid to Godly parenting and preparation of our treasured children to face life as one of His own.
wonderful book.... Dec 7, 2007
My son used this for his personal devotion time. He enjoyed the book and said it was very informational.
Have boys, must buy Nov 2, 2007
Dear Fellow Book-Lovers: My husband and I are blessed with four sons (and, one daughter) and I am so thankful that we came across this book. It is written in such a way that makes it easy for a parent to easily read a chapter a day to the children--I do believe it would be best as a read aloud. Everyone can learn to be a better worker from this book. I liked it so much that I gave away a copy on my blog. The author is fun and wise and a good writer. "Created for Work" feels more like a conversation with a good friend than reading a book.
Best advise for Boys and Men besides the Bible May 6, 2007
This book and His other,Boyhood and Beyond, are what this nation of ours needs. Since our nation changed from an agricultural, rural, family farm comunity, to a fast food inter-city one, children have had little or no responsibility around the home/farm. Learning how to joyfully accept responsiblity, respect other people and get along in the family and workplace is what this book is about. Fathers need to read this book because many of them have never learned to put up the "toys" and start being a loving provider for their families. Many grown men need to stop being boys and take their place in society, being peacemakers and profitable assets to the community. These two books are written by a MAN that GOD has helped to be just what I am describing. If you want to remain lazy and unprofitable to your family, don't read this. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A JOYFUL AND FULLFILLING LIFE. . . READ THIS AND PRACTICE WHAT YOU LEARN FROM IT!
