Best friend gave me this book by a well-known Quaker minister. With simple stories and humor, we are reminded that God is always with us.
Author Philip Gulley started writing by doing newsletter essays for his twelve member Quaker congregation in Indiana. Much to his surprise one found its way to radio commentator Paul Harvey Jr., and was read on the air to 24 million listeners. Now he has fourteen books in print including this collection of his newsletter essays.

Philip Gulley displays his insightful and wise outlook on life and the world in this book. Compiled of memories of his life, he recalls a season for every "important" event in life..from birth to death. It is a really refreshing work that is not hard to read, but is also full of knowledge. I would highly recommend it!
Very good book. I enjoy all his books. They are simple goodness brought home to small town Indiana that you can relate to easily. Feels like your neighbor or friends when your reading the characters. You know your rooting for them and the good to win in the end of this wonderful story. Short but engaging read.
It's been so nice to find an author who still has wholesome values and can write about them in such a captivating way! He's wonderfully good and sweet and squeaky clean.
A book full of insightful musings. I really liked this author and would like to read more from him.
Simple musings of a good life. Nothing really new in this book. No solid story line, just living life.
A reflection on small town anecdotes and how they relate to Ecclesiates. A quick, easy read.
A delightful read on one of my favorite scriptures.
You'll love this one too!!
He's wise for his years.
