About the Book
Gary W. Junek’s newly released guide, Live Our Values Everyday!!! combines thoughtful text and easy-to-use templates that empower readers of all ages to discover, define, and live their values every day, in spite of societal trends and temptations that challenge their resolve. Comments the author, “We have created the Live Our Values Everyday!!! campaign and L.O.V.Everyday!!! slogan to bring attention to the issue of values and love in the world. In essence, Live Our Values Everyday!!! means sharing L.O.V.Everyday!!!”
With chapters specifically geared toward different age groups, the book addresses the unique challenges kids face in learning to live their values as well as the special difficulties presented to teens and young adults. Junek lovingly empowers readers of all ages to make wise decisions based on a solid foundation of the values they choose to live. He also encourages readers to think about their words, thoughts, and actions through the spectrum of sharing L.O.V.Everyday!!!
Junek reminds the largest demographic group, the faith-based community, about the values contained in The Ten Commandments and encourages them to Live The Ten..Everyday!!! The book even implores grandparents to reflect on their lives and the world they shaped. It asks them to positively impact the younger generations by helping their grandchildren make a Live Our Values Everyday!!! list based on their values.
Junek’s work reflects his concern about the deterioration in values the country has experienced but also expresses his optimism about the future as readers explore the impact of values in their life. Accordingly, the templates included in Live Our Values Everyday!!! allow readers of all ages to write down their values and display them in a visible location where, Junek fervently hopes, they will be regularly read and utilized.
Live Our Values Everyday!!! is available at Amazon!
My Take on The Book
I was impressed with this book (though I did not know what to expect when I got it). The book itself is set up as a very practical workbook of sorts, starting off with the underlying information surrounding the philosophy and leading into practical guides for kids, teenagers and adults as well as groups, schools and the like.
The book makes a lot of sense and focuses on some of the important things in life, in particular what we want our lives to focus on and what we want our children to learn about the importance of values.
For me at least, I know that I will take the ideas listed in the book to heart and I plan to speak to J-Mom about how we might be able to incorporate some of the ideas into this book into our own family life.
So if you are looking for a practical book that helps you to truly clarify your own values and learn more about what is most important try out this short but powerful book, it might just change your and your family’s life.
