Thoughtful Wise Words to Live By
In his book “Life Lessons from Proverbs” Jack Nordgren draws practical applications for daily life from selected verses found in the book of Proverbs; through personal stories from Jack’s own life experiences.
A unique feature of Jack’s writing is his “down to earth” way of communicating truths, in practical terms that speak to the heart. He is open and honest in his writing. He writes with an amazing insight into human nature and the resultant consequences of sin and selfish desires; the pain divorce, the chains of addictions, tragedy, hurt and suffering. He also offers encouragement with stories of the blessings of reconciliations and changed lives.
Each chapter is filled with hands-on guidelines for practical living and with suggestions for effective ministry, including: lessons on listening, lessons from the lottery, and the secret of facing the fear of sudden disaster.
Jack’s earlier books tell of his spiritual journey, from surfing in Lake Michigan to a call to Chaplaincy and a ministry to surfers on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. “Wave Chasers’ Volume I and II tell of searching for surf on Lake Michigan and on the Great Lakes.
Jack writes for surfers, men and women. Life Lessons from Proverbs is a book and for all readers facing the struggles and challenged of life today.
