Wow!  Can I just tell you what a joy it was to read, Man Shoes-The Journey To Becoming A Better Man, Husband & Father?  It is my privilege to review this book; I believe that the author, Tom Watson, has some real valuable wisdom to offer his readers.   Tom  was born to parents ill prepared to raise a child in a healthy & life affirming way.  He was placed into 13 different foster homes…some of which were little more than a systemic form of a physical & psychological torture chamber. 

Tom was placed into foster care because his Aunt Donna & Uncle Roy found the courage to report the erratic parental care that infant Tom was experiencing.  His parents would drop him off here and there and neglect to pick him up at the times that they agreed to.  At one year of age, he became a foster child because his aunt and uncle found the strength of character to endure family censure by reporting the situation to the proper authorities.  Tom expresses his gratefulness to them for doing so…even though he suffered greatly in multiple foster homes until he came to the place where his body and soul were nurtured.  His life story actually proceeds with joy and gratefulness.  To read the rest of this review go to:  Book In Review

      As a parent; i know the value of obeying.  When my children were little, it terrified me crossing streets and things like that as my children are somewhat hardheaded.   Obeying me was in their best interest; I knew that…but they did not understand it that way.

        (My mother, at great times of stress, wished for me…”TEN CHILDREN JUST LIKE YOU!”  hahah   She probably regrets saying that now….as she has  many grandchildren  just like me). 

      Amazing since they aren’t biological…i just think it is because God has a wonderful sense of humor. 🙂 (more…)
