This book is about our Creator and Salvation. The connection between the Bible and Nature [God’s Second Book] is best described in Job 12:8: “Speak to the earth, and it will teach you.” We Worship our Creator because we owe our Total life and existence to Him. “Fear God and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven, and sea, and the fountains of waters” (Revelation 14:7 KJV). “He hath made the earth by His Power, He hath established the world by His Wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by His Discretion” (Jeremiah 10:12). Author Rick Streight wants everyone to know our Creator God values us far above diamonds, rubies, gold, or silver. Planet Earth was made just for us! Jesus gave his life on Calvary that we may have Forgiveness, Power, and Salvation. Read Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 1:18–19. If we love and trust God and are willing to submit to our Creator, Jesus says this, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matthew 16:24). Then God promises this, “I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir” (Isaiah 13:12). “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker” (Psalms 95:6). May we all start off every day with these thoughts: “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalms 118:24). God is reminding us to: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).

Give your children the gift of self-esteem, self-confidence and skills to succeed in life. Learn to empower children to make good decisions when they become teenagers and they're 60 miles away, going 60 miles an hour. Start when they are young by learning the Raising Able Family Management System based on: - family meetings, family chores, family dinner; - the triple e - encouragement, entitlement, empowerment; and - natural and logical consequences. Parents will be calmer and happier and be able to retire from being the house servant. Children will learn skills, time management, and responsibility. They will experience being part of a team and greater self-esteem and self-confidence. Chores counteract entitlement because it's impossible to feel entitled when youngsters clean toilets, sweep floors and rake leaves. Chores cure boredom immediately because there's always more work to be done in a home. This easy-to-read book offers time-tested advice by the mother of four children who has taught many parents the Raising Able Family Management System. The system is useful for typical children AND for special needs children. ADD recommend the Raising Able Family Management system for use with young people with ADD and ADHD.
