Books I read when I was young.

Books have had a profound impact on my life.  The major books I read as teenager were The Sovereignty of God and The Attributes of God by A W Pink, The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination by Loraine Boettner, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God and Know God by J I Packer, Pilgrim’s Progress and The Holy War by John Bunyan and Martyrs of France by Rev. John W. Mears (The 1863 edition).

I also like the books we were reading at school.   My seventh and eighth grade teacher Mr. McKeon we rarely used an anthology we primarily read books.  Some of the books we read were Black like Me by John Howard Griffin, The Mouse that Roared by Leonard Wibberley, 1984 by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank and the Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane.

Another book we read in school was the Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury.  This book captured my imagination like no other book in my life.  This book encouraged to read more books.  Up then all I was reading was Mad Magazine, Comics, and Spy vs. Spy. This book changed my life and another book that changed life was The Sovereignty of God by A W Pink.

My favorite books to read are Science Fiction and Fantasy literature like Dune by Frank Herbert and The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien.

If you want your children to be early readers laugh with them, play with them, and say yes more than no, read to them every night, give them happy memories, discipline them and be married.  Children need a kind and loving father and mother in their lives to grow up with healthy emotions.

The number thing we do for our children is talk about the Gospel and what Jesus did for us. Talk about him when driving to the store, or when your them giving them a bath, or in when your working in the kitchen.  The most important thing to do for our children is live out the Gospel so they can see it day and day out.  The best gift we can give to our children is Jesus Christ.
