This is an amazing book. Now I can watch the movie! This story was well written and moved smoothly.

As law enforcement officers Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes and their partners face the worst situations you could imagine. They also face a more difficult challenge at home. All of them face the challenges of fatherhood. Adam feels he is doing an OK job at being a husband and father. Sure there have been a few bumps in the road. Victoria wants him to connect better with their son Dylan, but is seems like work for Adam because they have nothing in common. Emily, their daughter, is easier to cope with. Nathan and his wife Kayla are beginning to struggle with how to handle their teenage daughter. Dave, Nathan's partner, has a daughter he has never seen. Shane, Adam's partner, struggles to keep the relationship with his son going, when he doesn't get to see him very often.

When a family tragedy strikes Adam's family he begins to search the bible for ways to cope with his emotions and with how he can be a better husband and father. He is challenged at every turn with being a better man, to provide and protect his family. Adam decides to write a resolution that will help guide him to becoming the man, father, and husband that God wants him to be. His fellow officers join him in this resolution.

This in one of those books where you should have tissues at hand because it will touch your heart. It makes you think about the challenges parents face in this day and age and that being a Christian brings a whole new meaning to those challenges. It is thought provoking. As a women I realized how much more I appreciate the fact that my husband wants to be the spiritual leader in our family. It is a important job.

This book is so worth the read.
