Mr. Monkey Endorses My Book

Just for fun, I am reblogging this post from several years ago (I do miss that study).

If you’ve never read my book, you can still order it. It’s a good read, even though I don’t drive a school bus anymore.


A Monkey’s Endorsement 

If you have been waiting to hear glowing endorsements before purchasing my book Life Lessons from the School Bus, then wait no longer.

On today’s edition of “Monday Monkey” Mr. Monkey will share a few words regarding the book and our friendship.

On the Fly Writing and Posting

I’m sitting on my school bus waiting for the kids to come running out to load up and go home. I’m writing this on my iPhone. Why am I telling you this? Because it’s raw, in the moment, unedited.

Like my last three posts, I’m doing something now that I want to try more often: writing on the fly. This way my emotions are fresh, my thoughts are still evolving, and I don’t have to worry about forgetting something.

And besides, sometimes long posts on Facebook seem more like grandstanding. Might as well write a blog post.

So, I hope you enjoy these “on the fly” iPhone entries. They won’t become the norm, but you’ll see them more often, for sure.

“Life Lessons” Now Available

Here’s a quick note to all my followers and subscribers.

If you will look down to the left in the widget column, there you will see the cover of my new little book, Life Lessons from the School Bus. You can click on that picture and find a link to where you can purchase it.

I really have high hopes for this new book. The feedback I’ve already gotten has been nothing but positive. One objective person who read the finished draft told me, “You did good; it hit the mark.”

A sample page - And yes, I did the illustrations :-)

Life Lessons from the School Bus is not just for bus drivers; it’s for everybody. But let me tell you, if you have ever ridden on a school bus, driven a school bus, worked with kids, or even had a second job – this bus is definitely for you!

Inside the book you will find 20 different stories (Route Stops). Each true story is followed up with a “Life Lesson” and a few “Route Suggestions” to follow. The picture to the right is an example of one page.

In case you are wondering, I did do several posts on this blog a while ago entitled “Life Lessons from the School Bus.” However, the book includes stories not published on this blog. Even the ones that are included in the book that were originally written here have been modified or expanded.

I promise, you will find this book a fun, quick read that you will want to share with others – after you buy them their own copy, of course.

If you’d like to buy larger quantities for whatever reason, just make a note to the publisher.

Proverbial Thoughts

Commercials

proverbial thought pictureEvery once in a while I do a commercial for Proverbial Thought. It is my other site which features several others and me commenting daily on the book of Proverbs. Every day we share personal thoughts based on life experience and study of the selected scripture.

Just recently Chris Jordan wrote a post (which I can’t find) on his blog which listed several of the last posts he had written on Proverbial Thought. That’s when I thought to myself, “Why don’t I do that?”

So, below you will find links to a few “thoughts” I’ve had. I would encourage you, if you haven’t already, to subscribe to Proverbial Thought and receive some real wisdom (not necessarily from me) on a daily basis.

Ye ol’ Proverbial Links

Generous Eyes (Prov. 22:9)

Just Wait Till You Get Home (Prov. 24:19-20)

Kissing the Truth (Prov. 24:23-26)

Muddied Water (Prov. 25:26)

Happy HUMP DAY! Go camel..go camel…go camel…

Your Strength Is Your Enemy

Proverbial Sermon

If you don’t go to church anywhere, you could listen to an edited message of mine that will air on local radio this evening (Sundays at 5 pm on WFLI, AM 1070).

I recently was impressed by a post that Chris Jordan did for Proverbial Thought (one of my other blogs); it really convicted me of my need to be stronger in the face of adversity. Chris commented on Proverbs 24:10, which says: “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”

The next day, however, when I followed Chris’ post by commenting on Proverbs 24:11-12, I found a nugget of gold that was not lying on the surface; it had to be dug out of the mine. That little nugget became the basis for this sermon.

If you have a few minutes, take a listen. What you hear might just encourage you.
