Eight Points of the Compass: Directing Our Children on the Path to a Better Life

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Dec 30, 2009 - Family & Relationships - 128 pages
0 Reviews

Why are so many people wandering aimlessly through life? Why has there been such a shift in values from generation to generation?

Facing imminent mobilization during the first Persian Gulf War, a father was faced with these questions as well as the challenge of who would teach his children the attributes that he most valued and wished to pass on to their generation.

In Eight Points of the Compass the attributes of Integrity (True North), Gratitude, Character, Balance, Commitment, Abundance, Vision, and Relationships are presented in anecdotal fashion so as to make them a lasting and timeless legacy of direction and wisdom for each succeeding generation.

 

“A must read for every parent.”

– Chris Sorensen, author of The Greatest Discovery
