I was given a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review which I place on Amazon dot com. This book is a simple, easy to read book with practical tips for each day of the 21 Day Challenge for all dads.
This book was written and dedicated to Carey’s friend Pater Spokes. Peter and Carey were partners in leading the “national center for Fathering” center. Casey knew Peter for four years before Peter passed away from a battle with Leukemia. Carey wants to challenge all fathers to becoming better dad’s 24/7. At the end of your life will you be happy to have zero regrets concerning your fatherhood? This book will guide you on how to be the best dad you can be.
Each chapter has a “Challenge” and a “Plan” for you to read and follow and do. For example on page eight he writes, “Are you willing to try something new as you seek to have fun with your kids?” Then you can place three fun things to do with your children and follow through with them.
I loved this book because I could go online and follow the guide and challenge at http://www.21DayDadChallenge.com/Intro.
I chose this book because I am a mother of a child and her father left us when she was 1.5 years old. I had to play the father and the mother in the roles of my life raising our daughter without much help from him. It broke my heart then and it does now. I want to share with each of you the valuable gift of life we have and as mothers and fathers the time we need to dedicate to our kids is now and not when they are grown up and gone.
I would recommend this book to everyone, fathers and mothers and even children.
