Father Knows Best - Whether We’re Willing to Admit it or Not New Book Shares Lessons Taught by “Our Fathers Who Art In Heaven”
May 26, 2005 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) Williamsville, NY (May 2005) – Perhaps the old saying that “Father knows best” is true. Whether we’re willing to admit it or not, we all learn lessons from the man we call “dad.” The lesson may be something he sat down and taught us, something we observed from his behavior, or special memories we have from growing up with him. Often, the lessons are not apparent until many years later. Unfortunately, by then, it may be too late to say “thanks.”
In his new book, Our Fathers Who Art In Heaven…and What They Continue to Teach Us (WAIH Publishing, $17.95, ISBN 0-9759057-1-6), author, management consultant, and executive coach Gerry Murak shares forty-four stories from people from several countries about the lessons they have learned from their deceased fathers. Each story reveals one individual’s touching memory of his or her dad and describes the lesson(s) he taught them and continues to teach despite his absence.
Well organized and carefully crafted, Our Fathers Who Art In Heaven offers lessons in such areas as Attitude, Integrity, Determination, Compassion, Character, and many others. It is an insightful and moving collection of memories that anyone, young or old, male or female, can enjoy. The stories may also evoke memories and lessons individual readers have learned from their own father.
In addition to this book being a way to commemorate the lives of the fathers everywhere, the profits from the direct sales of this book will go toward the Our Fathers Who Art In Heaven Foundation, a central source of inspiration for those who have lost their fathers or are having challenges in being a dad. Also, every Father’s Day, beginning in 2005, the author, who is also an international speaker, will give a free public speech to remember, share, and encourage others who have lost their fathers. The first speech is scheduled to take place during a “Father’s Day Celebration” at the Eastern Hills Mall in Clarence, NY, on Saturday June 18th.
