Top Ten Books to Get the Men in Your Life (in no particular order)

Today’s blog post is all about great books to get the men in your life. Since Brandon has been on a mission to read 100 books this year, I asked him to write a Father’s Day blog post, rounding up 10 of his favorites so far. If you’ve got a man in your life who a) likes to read b) is feeling “stuck” or “unfulfilled” OR c) struggles to view life in a positive light, I think you’ll find the perfect book right here.

And with that, I give you today’s guest blog post, written by my absolute favorite guy!

A book all about finding out who you are even through the struggles. If your man is into sports at all then he will appreciate the references to Tebow’s career and get a look at the mindset of a pro athlete.

Short. Sweet. And to the point. How perspective and how you look at things determines everything. Every experience can be changed by changing how you look at it. Great book for any man.
