Settin’ the table…

I realize that beyond a very wordy “intro”, I’ve not put much about my book out there.  That a parent might vaguely “grow” from reading it, is only a small version of the hope I have.  I wrote the book because I wanted to read a book like it.  Since then, God continues to challenge me as I re-read portions of it myself.  For a more specific picture of the topics/areas the book talks about, here’s the table of contents:
