This book is something that all fathers and prospective fathers should be reading. And honestly, every woman out there should be putting this in their man's hands. This is a wonderful guide to being a, well, wonderful father. Interspersed with sports stories , stories from his own experience, and Biblical wisdom, Carey Casey has a 'game plan' for being a great father.

The book includes chapters like "Love 101" and "Championship Fathering". Most important are chapters on "Loving Your Children" and "Loving Your Children's Mother". These are all important chapters and focus on creating healthy, well balanced children.

Personally, I loved reading the sports stories and how they fit in with the Biblical references he used. As a single mom raising boys, I thought it was a great book. I had to be father and mother and this book would have been a great resource. This book is going to impact your family, whether just the father reads it, or if both parents read it.

This book is definitely one that should be on the list of every father and mother - and referred to over and over again.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
