Practical Advice on living the life you want to live. Jun 30, 2006
Hit Upon God teaches important life lessons as related through Charley Hartley's life experiences. His book reads similar to a story from the Bible with present-day examples.
Charlie candidly relates both his successes and failures in his family and business life. One of my favorite stories concerns his daughter's ability to overcome her fear of swimming the butterfly stroke in the chapter "The Greatest Swim". I enjoy reading his practical advice section of this chapter where he tells us how "people can exceed our expectations, so be careful not to underestimate them."
Each chapter concludes with a list of practical advice for future reference. When contemplating the meaning of life, your reading this book with help if only to make you realize that others have struggled as you have.
Charlie Hartley's inspiration for this book came from the life changing events of September 11, 2001. I praise him for his writing which is an inspirational phoenix in a time of despair and confusion. Hit Upon God gives hope in a world surrounded by negative people and negative press. An inspirational read to be added to my collection of books to read for an uplifting experience.
You will enjoy this book ! Dec 1, 2004
This book is a wonderful combination of honesty, practical advice, humility, and humor. I not only enjoyed reading it, but have shared many of his anecdotes with members of my family. Mr. Hartley is able to use his own life experiences along with sports metaphors to help us find the right path to travel in order to succeed. He uses his own failures and successes to show us how with faith in God and determination we can overcome many of life's obstacles. You will enjoy this book !
Share this book with your children Nov 30, 2004
Charlie has written a wonderful book about living life facing forward. I have shared this book with my wife and two older children, who have all been touched by the author's optimism and positive message. "Hit Upon God" is a must for anyone with teenaged children who need a nudge in the right direction in setting their daily goals and life objectives. It also gave me some fresh perspective on my life and career that has changed my outlook in a positive way.
Inspiring! Nov 30, 2004
Mr. Hartley's lively writing and humorous, warm stories immediately improved my outlook from the first few pages. Mr. Hartley has "hit upon" meaningful wisdom in a busy, complicated world. He gives us practical information in a great story format. Sometimes we all wonder if we're alone in our self-doubts and ups and downs. Mr. Hartley lays bare his life and soul in this wonderful book. He courageously tells us of his own dreams -- those fulfilled and those unfulfilled. The true meaning is revealed not by his greatest successes that came easily, but by his greatest failures out of which came his greatest triumphs. Mr. Hartley gives exciting stories of life, family and sports (including insightful stories of the best high school basketball coach of all time - Morgan Wooten). Along the way, he gives reasons for living a full life beyond material desires. His stories of faith are universal and upbeat. He makes spirituality obtainable for everyone. A must-read, comforting, inspirational book.
A Passion for God Always Nov 24, 2004
Charlie Hartley has a passion for living - living for God and with God every day. In Hit Upon God Mr. Hartley reveals truths from the heart - the kind of truths that set him free to let go and LET GOD! Many can relate to his descriptions of the ups and downs of life and his continual focus on finding God's will. In Chapter 19, Expressing Our Feelings, Hartley talks about getting our priorities straight. "God wants you to be fulfilled" he says. The book is inspiring from the start,truly a great journey of life for anyone seeking to be uplifted and encouraged and filled with a passion for God! Thank you Mr. Hartley for sharing your story!
