Written by a loving grandfather for his two grandsons, Things I Wanted My Grandsons 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 grandsons were born to his only child, an adopted daughter. The boys became the sons the older man never had, both were born when he was already in his sixties. Today, a combination of school, distance, sporting events limits his one on one time to share those things that comprised his moral compass with the boys. Now in his 70's and the winter of his life, Kenn--thinking he would not live long enough to pass any words of wisdom along to his grandsons as they were growing up--decided to write them out instead.
His primary objective is to help his grandsons 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 Grandsons 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 grandsons.
