Wise Guys by Kent Evans - Book Review #WiseGuys #FlyBy


WISE GUYS:

For guys, more than ever, it’s a confusing world. Your GPS doesn’t offer any maps showing how to get to the point of wisdom — and who likes asking for directions anyway?
But there are ways to get that guidance you need. The answers may be all around you, in the form of guys you already know. Wise guys. More experienced guys. Better-traveled guys. Could there be ways to tap into their invaluable knowledge without enduring dull lectures or taking pages of notes?
Kent Evans has surrounded himself with these wise guys. They have shown him all the back roads on the way to wisdom. With a great deal of humor and an endless supply of stories, he wants to show you how to gather life-enriching truth from the guys in your own circle.

Chapter lessons include-
  • Figure Yourself Out
  • Encourage Relentlessly
  • Always Be Asking
  • Correct Gently
  • Learn from Action
  • Follow the Sprinters
  • Welcome Kindly
  • Exercise Tangible Grace
  • Finish Strong
  • Ditch the Cynicism (My favorite chapter!)
  • Ask Artfully
  • Know When to Let Go
  • Pray Spontaneously
  • Tap Shoulders
  • Command Calmly
  • Sign Up, Pitch In
  • Simply Excel

I love how each chapter includes questions to consider and tips. This book would be a great gift for any man in your life. It is encouraging and very well written.

8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids ~ Review


If you're looking for a new parenting book to read, 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids is an excellent one! I don't know about you friends, but I could use all the tools and help I can get when it comes to raising my children.  Let child psychologist and father Todd Cartmell walk you through the nuts and bolts of healthy, effective parenting.




Using examples from his home and 20 years of professional practice, Todd gives eight essential and practical tools to help you:

  • Maintain a healthy relationship with your child 
  • Develop a nurturing home culture
  • Correct behavior in lasting ways

















Designed for busy parents, 8 Simple Tools breaks each tool into five short chapters that include a summary tip and application questions. Use even half of the tools in your parenting, and your family dynamics will thrive. Your relationship with your child will be built on love and trust, providing you with fertile ground for planting God’s wisdom in their heart, and ultimately, seeing them flourish.

I loved reading all of the different examples that are included with the different tools and tips. The short chapters were perfect for me as well. I could easily read a few chapters a night, when I had the time, and I really feel like I learned some very useful and important tools that will ultimately help me grow as a parent and person in general. 


One of my favorite parts of the book was the Summary of Tips that is included in the back and the notes section. The notes section provides a bible verse for each tool. I enjoyed looking up the verses and comparing them to what I was learning. 


Do I recommend this book? YES, yes, yes! I absolutely loved this book.
