PARABLES OF A GRANDDAD Shares Delightful Family Stories

As the familiar saying goes, it's the little things in life that mean the most. Taking this idea to heart, Jed J. Ramsey delivers his heartfelt memoir, "Parables of a Granddad" (published by Trafford Publishing), a book meant to remind his precious family of their - and his - history.

Ramsey musings of life's random happenings about cherished family memories and seemingly inconsequential details ground this memoir in the foundation of family, but it is the frequent scriptural references and devotional-like structure of the book that make this an enjoyable read for anyone looking for a bit of inspiration.

If we greet each day with the idea that this is truly the day that the Lord hath made (and made it for all mankind), and that we are to enjoy it to the full (down to the very last drop), then our days will add up to something special. If the days are approached in the opposite way--"Oh dear, why do I have to get up today? I'm sure that I'll never make it through the coming six, eight, ten, twelve hours of this day"--the days will add up to a great number of lost moments and discouragements.

Each of us have 24 hours to use every day. Controlled attitudes make the difference. This is the day that the Lord hath made. Drink ye all of it.

"Parables of a Granddad" is a religiously focused family memoir - one that drives home the point that families need to be reminded of their memories and the things that bind them together to keep their relationships strong.
