Dr. Kevin Leman learned the hard way what it means to live with wisdom. As a young man he preferred to be the class clown and just barely finished high school. And after one year at college he was not asked to come back. It was when he met the woman who was to become his wife that he decided to get his act together and make an effort. It was also at this time that he remembered Proverbs 3:1-6, the passage that his mother wrote in his Bible. Those words served as a guiding force and inspiration to help Leman use his talents and become an internationally known psychologist and humorist. In The Way of the Wise: Simple Truths for Living Well, Dr. Leman examines these verses from Proverbs to highlight 10 lessons that we can all learn and apply to live with more wisdom. His stories and insights will help you discover the life-changing impact of these six verses from King Solomon and give you hope, courage, and perspective to face whatever challenges life brings your way.

Do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you."
