What do you hope readers will come away with after reading your book? I hope that my readers will feel a sense of hope and encouragement to live out their dreams and to realize they can become whatever they set their mind to become no matter how much or how little they start out with. He set the example of working hard and teaching his children to never give up. He taught his children to try hard at any goal in life. If we failed in the beginning, he encouraged us to keep trying until we figured out a way to make our goal become a reality. I realize that everyone was not blessed with a loving father who set a good example. We don’t get to choose our parents. I was lucky to have a daddy that inspired me to become the man I am today. There are many people who will read this book who either had a father who abused them or there was no daddy at all. You can overcome that upbringing by associating yourself with positive role models who got it right. If someone told you that you will never amount to anything, don’t believe that lie. With the right mindset and attitude, you can live out your dreams. We can also have positive role models and mentors through people we read about in books. My dad is one of those mentors I will share with you. Even though most of you never met my dad, I hope after reading this book you will see the type of man it takes to be an inspiring, motivating and loving father that we all need to help us cope in today’s world. Feel free to use my daddy as a mentor through the words of this book to encourage you and to teach you how to be the father or parent that you can become to your children or future children.

In honor of Father’s Day, what are some words of wisdom your father shared with you that you think folks could benefit from today? One of my dad’s favorite sayings was, “Your actions speak so loud, I can’t hear a word you are saying.” Somebody is looking at your life right now and is taking notice of your actions. My dad would encourage you to be aware of your actions. He always said, “We have freedom of choice, but we don’t have the freedom of the consequences.” So, make wise choices in which you have control of to have fewer regrets when you get older. My dad was a man of his word. His advice to me was to be careful what I promised. After I made the promise, make sure that I followed through and kept my word. My dad believed in protecting and developing a good reputation by being true to others and in the meantime and more importantly being true to yourself. He believed in nurturing good values based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. He was a man of God who “loved his neighbor as himself.” He was always on time for any appointment. He always said, “If you can’t be early, don’t show up.” He lived a life demonstrating the following philosophy: “Don’t tell me how much you know until you show me how much you care.” My dad cared about everyone he met and he would encourage you this Father’s Day to do the same.
