This is the first book of two written by a loving grandfather for his only grandchild. Things I Wanted My Grandson to Know Before I Leave presents a collection of quotes, sayings, snippets, and observations that author Kenn Stobbe believes helped him to live a successful, God-centered life.
Kenn's Grandson was born to his adopted daughter, a single mother. The boy became the son the older man never had, born when he was already in his mid-sixties. Since the boy is without father to give him advice, Kenn--thinking he would not live long enough to pass any words of wisdom along to his grandson as he was growing up--decided to write them out instead.
His primary objective is to help his grandson live the same type of life he has himself. As part of this collection, Kenn addresses, life, love, common sense, manners, morals, values, and beliefs, with a sprinkling of his own thoughts and opinions. Some of the entries are humorous, while others are more serious and thought-provoking.
Things I Wanted My Grandson to Know Before I Leave offers a heartwarming glimpse into the character and integrity of one man and into the depth of his love for his grandson.
