Be a Better Dad Today
[Alice Tucker and Monika are the winners of this giveaway. Thanks to Regal Books for sponsoring it. You can purchase Be a Better Dad Today: Ten Tools Every Father Needs at Amazon.]
As someone from a hardscrabble background who grew up to be a purposeful parent, I find this dad's story resonates.
His work resume is quite impressive, but that doesn't necessarily qualify him to teach about fatherhood. However, Chuck Colson was ready to vouch for his credentials - and even wrote the forward for this book:
Be a Better Dad Today: Ten Tools Every Father Needs
Gregory W. Slayton, best-selling author and father of four, doesn't beat around the bush: "Being a good dad isn't only vital for the future of our families and our society . . . it is critical to our own development as men." Be a Better Dad Today is an inspirational and practical guidebook for every father who wants to become the best dad he can be--for his family's sake and his own. With humor, empathy, common sense, tough talk and engaging stories from his personal experience, Slayton reveals user-friendly, simple-but never- simplistic techniques that will help every dad fulfill his God-given responsibilities. Whether readers are parenting younger or older kids, boys or girls, they will find wise insights and practical, doable action steps for becoming the father God created them to be!
"I grew up with an absentee father, and when I became a father myself, I determined not to follow that same path. I wrote this book for dads like me who are looking for ways to be better dads. Now with the book out only one week, we are getting feedback from mothers who are equally grateful for the lessons shared by dads around the world in this book I was honored to write," Gregory Slayton explains.
Gregory Slayton discovered how to Be a Better Dad Today, through trial and error. Now he shares the secrets, tried and true. A husband embracing Be a Better Dad Today: Ten Tools Every Father Needs will give Mom a Mother's Day gift she is not likely to forget.
To underscore his commitment of strengthening families, Gregory Slayton has committed to donate 100% of his book royalties to charity. In addition to this, Slayton is making his book available to the Fellowship of Fathers Foundation, so they can offer a free book to ANY active duty military man requesting one through their military Chaplain.
