Love & Respect in the Family

On 2/17 ThatGuyKC wrote: What’s it about: Equipping parents with principles to raise their kids effectively and the verbiage to relate to their kids emotionally.

Every parent should read this book

Secrets of Dynamic Communication

Secrets of Dynamic Communication

On 10/25 ThatGuyKC wrote: Everyone has something to say. That’s what words are for. To communicate a message. To share a passion. To inspire or persuade. Trouble is, not everyone uses their words well. Studies show that people fear public speaking more than death. What?! You might ... Secrets of Dynamic Communication

Seven Men

Seven Men

On 7/16 ThatGuyKC wrote: There are questions that strike to the core of every man's being. Beyond wondering "Why am I here?" these questions are a heavy burden on the shoulders. Answering them pierces the soul like a sword. What is a man? What makes him great? Pat answers and cliches are thrown around, but addressing ... 7 Great Men and Their Secrets

Jesus Is

Jesus Is

On 3/7 ThatGuyKC wrote: Until this last Saturday I thought I knew who Jesus was. I started Sunday school at age 5 and regularly attended church for the better part of a quarter century. I can give you the Bible verses, quote the Gospels and tell you Jesus died for me. Last Saturday my puny, pea-brain exploded and I came face ... I've been re-introduced to Christ

20,000 Days and Counting

20,000 Days and Counting

On 1/18 ThatGuyKC wrote: Most of the time people measure their lives by how old they are (I turn 30 this year). Sometimes we think about the years we might have left. While this approach to quantifying life may seem natural, 30 isn't that big a number and time is kind of big and vague. As some crusty ancient philosopher said, "What ... Fun, Inspiring, Compelling

Wisdom Meets Passion

Wisdom Meets Passion

On 10/8 ThatGuyKC wrote: When I think of wisdom I picture some old wrinkly guy in a toga with a long smokey pipe sitting on a mountain peacefully sweating zen out of every pore. When I think of passion I think of fire, youth and the relentless pursuit of a lover. I think of a fighter battling to save the one he loves and reckless ... When Wisdom Met Passion

Surprised by Laughter

Surprised by Laughter

On 8/7 ThatGuyKC wrote: I never thought I’d read an academic book about laughter that would keep my attention, but Dr. Lindvall’s dry humor, conversational tone and insight into the work of C.S. Lewis was fascinating. While the book clocks in at 496 pages it isn’t for the faint of heart. However, it’s much less like ... Surprised by Laughter

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook

On 12/5 ThatGuyKC wrote: Is there a better book title? I don’t think it gets more winning than that (if I may quote the infamous Charlie Sheen). Here’s a bit of irony for you. The first horror/slash zombie book I ever read was launched by a Christian publisher. That’s right. A horror novel released by none other than ... Grab your guns and your bible

The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/11 ThatGuyKC wrote: How would you answer the ultimate question? You’re answer would probably depend on what the ultimate question actually is. Although, it’s probably not the question you think… Andy Andrews is one of the most skilled storytellers I have ever read. He is simply phenomenal at drawing the reader into the story in such a way that it’s easy ... When Humanity Hangs in the Balance

On 6/4 ThatGuyKC wrote: I am a really nice guy. I hate that about myself. Hang with me to the end. Boys don’t grow up with the goal of becoming a mild mannered cubicle dweller.
