Below are his books available on, all from a Christian perspective.


Generations to Come: Becoming all things to your child

My latest work on parenting, published by 21st Century Christian. Like most tough jobs, parenting can be broken down into smaller, doable jobs to help us successfully accomplish our goals. The Model - The actions and behaviors of the parents will directly either strengthen or inhibit their children's growth as individuals. "What behaviors will my children learn from me?" The Mentor - Parents must actively work to mold the child in the ways that seem best. "What can I teach my child?" The Guide - Parents must actively work to mold the child in the ways that seem best. "What must I ensure that my child learns?" The Psalmist says of God's command in Psalm 78:4, "We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done." (KJV)

No More Yelling formerly titled, How to Argue with Your Teen and Win; a good primer to start communicating better, tonight. Available in Kindle.

This book can get you started tonight on communicating better with your teen in both casual situations and when you are working to make them do what you expect. As the parent, you must enact what you believe to be best for your teen. This can be difficult as they obviously have a will of their own. Through the active parenting tactics in this book, you can curb your child's poor behavior and instill positive behavior while building a healthy relationship with him or her.

“A much needed book for parents who are struggling with a challenging teen. I think every parent who has a teenager or child in the house should get this book to learn helpful techniques for relating to their son or daughter and the secret to eliminating power struggles. I wish I had this book when I was raising my teenage daughters alone-I could have avoided many years of frustration and pain.” 
-Susan Bowman, Ed.S., Author of many books including her memoir, 
Breaking Free: A Memoir of a Teenage Runaway

“I loved it! I can use this material for dealing with my teenage clients and their parents, but also for dealing with my own 2 children (ages 15 and 11). The concepts are rock solid and are based on active parenting which is extremely effective. I know it works at my house and for those clients I teach it to who are struggling with their own teens. This book will fill a tremendous need, especially in a brief but powerful manner. Parents will have no problem reading through and getting started on it the very first day.” -Jane Headrick, Licensed Professional Counselor, MHSP, Restore Counseling Services

“How to Argue . . . is really an awesome work; practical, well written, and well illustrated. A top-notch book.” -Matthew Morine, Minister, Castle Rock Church of Christ, Castle Rock, CO.
