Discover the deeper side of integrity, commitment, honor, self-discipline, connection and character in the beautiful collection of heartwarming, poignant stories. Illustrating values in action, this book illuminates how values are learned in the daily exchange between family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers. It inspires us to remember that what is enriching and lasting in life is often the result of long-term investments in the people we love and care about.
In the Midwestern United States, blankets of wheat, alfalfa and corn stretch as far as the eye can see. Farmers till the rich soil and harvest its abundance to feed a nation. This is a region where family values and respect for God and country are instilled in citizens from childhood. It was here, growing up in America's heartland, that Bettie Youngs learned the many values of family life: love, respect, honor, loyalty and self discipline, among others. Told here in loving detail are nostalgic stories recollected from Youngs' life--a rich tapestry that allows us to share in the warmth and balance of a principle--centered life.
Youngs' life in a large family was not without difficulties, yet through these value-laden stories she shows us how challenging times, when leavened with love and support, can provide strength of character, courage and leadership.
