The idea to be “Christlike” or “more Christlike” is a falacy of your own mind. Adam was a decendent of God formed in God’s image. Eve was formed from the rib of Adam as a helper. As a Christian you believe you are decendents of Adam and Eve therefore you are already as Christlike as you can be. It is your behavior alone that holds you back in your own mind that you aren’t Christlike.For it was by grace alone that you were saved from your own transgressions through God’s abundance of mercy and love. When you finally embrace the grace of God with your whole heart you will be at peace.

One of the hardest things for me as being a Christian is living in a world where the people around you can't understand how you have faith in a God that can't be seen, quantified, or fit into the constraints of this world while living in a time where you will be shamed for loving someone so much that you would devote and give up your whole life for in hope to share your life in the grace and glory of Jesus Christ in victory of overcoming sin and the world.

28,500! That’s not a really big number. Think about what you could do with 28,500 dollars. That might be a good down payment on a house or buy you a decent car or maybe a college degree but that isn’t what I’m talking about.
28,500 is the approximate number of days, ~78 years, a human being who was born in the United States will live on this Earth. Sounds kind of depressing now right! You’ll spend the first 6,570 days going to school and learning to become an adult. That leaves you with about approximately 21,930 days to make an impact on this Earth and give something back. You’ll spend the next 12 years or until you are around the age of 30 gaining enough wisdom to realize all the things you should have done now in a race to make the last 17,550 days on the Earth count. But what about sleep! There are so many things left to do, so many people left to help and guide, so many books to read, and all you have left is 17,550 days left to do it.
How are you going to make those days count? Are you going to invest a little now taking care of yourself so you can live out the last of days as fruitful at the first or are you going to spend it siting on the couch watching TV and surfing the Internet? Time is ticking and no one knows when the clock will stop. What you do with your time is the most valuable thing you will do in life. Are you going to use it selfishly or selflessly by investing in the next generation? Every day counts!

I found this book to be quite enjoyable. Going in I had this preconceived idea that I was probably going to be bored to death since this book wasn’t directed towards me but as I listened to the audio book every day while driving to and from work (I drive almost 1 hour each way every day) I found myself smiling, laughing, and at times making key notes that I could have used this concept with my own Son. Almost every time I agreed with what Dr. Eggerichs concepts on building a better relationship and understanding with our Sons. Many times I even wished my own wife used some of these same concepts in communicating with me. Something I noted that was different in this book versus the Love and Respect book was that he went into far greater detail on various concepts and ideas with building a relationship with your Son through respect but also with men in general using verses from the Bible to back up what he has just said. I feel like this book would greatly benefit Mothers in their relationship with their Son(s) but also greatly improve their relationships with their Husband. I hope you find this book as enjoyable as I did. I’m sure I will end up reading or listening to this book again in the future.
Below I am running a giveaway for 1 FREE copy of this book. A winner will be selected in the next 7 days.
