Thanks for the guest post by Esteban Vinson

Lately I’ve been keeping a gratitude journal so that I can keep track of all of the good things that happen to me. I reunited with a bunch of my friends from college a few months ago and one of them said her and her husband started that habit when they found themselves becoming more and more negative each day. I think that sometimes it gets so easy to focus on the negative, and keeping a journal about everything I am grateful for helps me keep things in perspective too. It was a great recommendation from a good friend. Every night before I go to sleep I try to jot something down, no matter how insignificant it seems. My entries have ranged from something as small as being grateful for my friend recommending I go to Clear-Internet.com to get a mobile 4G internet connection, to something as meaningful as being grateful that all four of my grandparents are still alive and healthy. The best part of keeping the journal is looking back and laughing and reminiscing about my entries. Sometimes when I look back on the days when I struggled I laugh at how unimportant those shortcomings seem now.

This is a good one! Anyway, I got this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers. This book has a different real life stories or scenario along with few questions about you as a father. Obviously, this book is for all the father in the world that want to be part of their child's life. It's not too late to try to get in touch with your child. Now is the right time and this book will guide you on how to do it. If your interested and want to change things in your family especially your child, go ahead and get a copy at Barnes and Noble.

Better relationship with your kids?
It's closer than you think!

What's keeping you from a better bond with your child? It's not that you don't want to spend more time together, have more fun, and pass along more God-honoring values.
But life gets in the way, and before you know it you're waving good-bye to a son or daughter and wishing you could try that fathering thing again.
Here at last is a book that understands. The 21-Day Dad's Challenging features a simple, practical tip for each day of the next three weeks-along with a quick, easy way to try it out. Not enough to weigh you down; just enough to make a difference.
No matter what your child's age, make each day count with in-person loving, coaching, and modeling-starting with the next 21!
