Front Cover
iUniverse, Sep 2, 2010 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 144 pages
Life is filled with ups and downs, joys and sorrows, heartache and happiness. In Dear Peanut, author Bill Johnson tries to prepare his unborn grandchildren for the roller coaster of life through a series of forty-two thought-provoking letters touching on multiple subjects. While written with unborn grandchildren in mind, the short, simple messages address adults who are still learning about themselves and their place in life. A helpful roadmap for daily life, Dear Peanut conveys practical wisdom and discusses an array of topics that affect everyday living—faith, social interaction, communication, true friends, seeing life as a blessing, grace, and miracles. Touching on spirituality, psychology, and social life, this collection of lessons helps those seeking to understand themselves better and to answer those silent but persistent questions we all have about our own lives. Dear Peanut serves as a gentle reminder that there are more important things in life than the daily grind. It reminds us to live simply and abundantly each day.
