A few days ago, I asked all my Twitter friends for new book suggestions. I got lots of great answers: Pop Goes The Church, It, Victorious Christian Living. All good books. But I didn’t buy any of those.
Instead, my book found me.
Sarah and I decided to make a quick trip to the Dollar (Holla!) Store for some classroom supplies. As I skimmed the asiles looking for cheap, corney gifts to give people (and I found one for you) I stumbled across a nice hardbound copy of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life.
The book is a collection of 10 life lessons the author gleaned from his time spent as one of Reagan’s speechwriters. It’s not a biography and it’s not a lesson on foreign policy. It’s a lesson on character and what it takes to be a man of courage and committment in trying times. I’m excited to read it.
On a side note, I was a little miffed that a great Reagan-themed book had been relegated to the Dollar (Holla!) Store aisles, but then I found the stash of John Kerry’s book and felt justified.
