A Father´s Gift to His Daughter:The Early Years Larry B. Hiwiller Jr.
From the beginning of time, God has instilled in each one of us a yearning for a higher being. Searching for this higher being has forced us to look deep within ourselves for the answers. As time goes on, our belief that God has a plan for us personally dwindles to a minute awareness, and we find ourselves wandering from church to church, longing for the blessings of God that have eluded us for so many years. Larry Brown´s The God Walking Program: Steps Leading Us to the Father´s Will takes readers on a journey through the Bible in a simple, yet insightful, conversation with God. Using passages of Scripture from all throughout the Bible, The God Walking Program ultimately points to one undeniable truth: Jesus Christ is the way to the Father´s will. No matter how educated or uneducated you are in the Bible, you will no doubt come away with a better understanding of your relationship with Jesus Christ and the blessings that come from this union. 1.

The celebrated Pulitzer finalist and prize-winning author of Dinner at the Center of the Earth and What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank delivers his best work yet, a streamlined comic masterpiece about a son´s failure to say Kaddish for his father. Larry is the secular son in a family of Orthodox Brooklyn Jews. When his father dies, it´s his responsibility to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. To the horror and dismay of his sister, Larry refuses-imperiling the fate of his father´s soul. To appease her, Larry hatches an ingenious if cynical plan, hiring a stranger through a website called kaddish.com to recite the prayer and shepherd his father´s soul safely to rest. Sharp, irreverent, hilarious, and wholly irresistible, Englander´s tale of a son who makes a diabolical compromise ingeniously captures the tensions between tradition and modernity-a book to be devoured in a single sitting whose pleasures and provocations will be savored long after.

An award-winning poet offers a multigenerational portrait of an American family - weaving together the lives of his ancestors and his parents and his own coming of age in the ´60s and ´70s in the wake of his father´s suicide - in this superbly written, ´´fiercely honest´´ (Nick Flynn) memoir. The fifth of eight children, Chris Forhan was born into a family of silence. He and his siblings learned, without being told, that certain thoughts and feelings were not to be shared. On the evenings his father didn´t come home, the rest of the family would eat dinner without him, his whereabouts unknown, his absence pronounced but not mentioned. And on a cold night in 1973, just before Christmas, Forhan´s father killed himself in the carport. Forty years later Forhan ´´bravely considers the way he is and is not his father´s son´´ (Larry Watson), digging into his family´s past and finding within each generation the same abandonment, loss, and silence in which he was raised. Like Ian Frazier in Family or Frank McCourt in Angela´s Ashes, Forhan shows his family members as both parts and products of their times. My Father Before Me is a family history, an investigation into a death, and a stirring portrait of an Irish Catholic childhood, all set against a backdrop of America from the Great Depression to the Ramones. Marrying the literary scope of memoirists Geoffrey Wolff and J. R. Moehringer with the intensity of family novels like The Corrections and We Are Not Ourselves, My Father Before Me is the kind of epic, immersive memoir that comes along once in a decade. 1.

With one final blow to the already battered, bleeding, and sunken in face, he stepped back. He stared at the mangled body on the ground. The man´s face was unrecognizable, and you couldn´t tell what color hair he had through all of the blood. The newspaper he had laid out to sleep on was no longer black and white, but red with his blood. William stepped away, looking down at his hands. ´´Man my knuckles hurt,´´ he thought to himself. ´´That´s one less person that San Diego has to feed, and help.´´ His thoughts continued. He had a good reason to be angry with this man. William Mead was a 39-year-old retired chief warrant officer after 21 years of service for our country. He was married once, and then divorced on peaceful terms. In fact, his ex-wife claimed he was dull and boring. His everyday life was too mundane for her. William looked back at the lifeless body lying on the ground, still bleeding out. ´If she could see me now.´ He chuckled. Before you go judging William for what he just did, let´s first take a look back on his life. William´s parents didn´t expect to have a new baby. The shock wore off pretty quickly, and then they were elated. They already had a 14-year-old son when Shelly, Mark´s mother, had William. Mark´s father, Larry, has already done 23 years, and is a colonel in the USMC, when William was born. When William was born, everyone was very excited. As stated before, he was unexpected, but such a happy surprise. Even though his brother Mark was only 14 when William was born, he knew he wanted to follow in his father´s footsteps. 1.

The message of this audiobook speaks of the heart and attitude of a true son as it pertains to honoring the Father’s heart through real and living relationships. It is about loving one another and honoring the Father’s heart in others as well. It is also about fulfilling His practical will and purpose for our lives and thereby glorifying His name in all we say and do. It is not about what we can do for Him apart from being all we can be in and through Him. It is a simple and uncomplicated approach to sonship. Much of what is being taught today as the only pattern of sonship is so convoluted that it confuses and frustrates His disciples and sons. Sonship is about catching and embracing the Father’s heart and spirit in our lifetimes, and being a living expression of the loving purpose of His way. It is not about hooking somebody up, making the right connections, catching a break, or all achievements or accomplishments in the world. ´´Sonship is our destiny and our inheritance is wrapped up in discovery.” Is there anything more important than sonship? 1.
