Every inventor writes the manual for the use of his invention. A car has an owner's manual, written by the manufacturer. God the creator/inventor of the universe has written a Manual for His creation, the earth. The irrefutable fact remains that people are either not reading or yielding to the Manual since as statistics indicate 80%-85% of the US population profess to be Christians. Despite the large number of believers, we have a huge disconnect between the practices of people and the ethos of the dictates of the Bible (The Manual). Disagreements on subjects like prayer in schools, debate on the death penalty, abortion, homosexuality and divorce exist when the manual is clear on these subjects. This work makes the case that the reader obeys and uses the Word of God as the manual it ought to be. It is an authentic document proven by historical, prophetic, miracles and the life changing spiritual facts. It also looks at the major world religions, discussing how to use the manual and what not to do with it and invites people to come to life by the shed blood of Jesus. BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Bonaventure C. Okoro MD is an Internist in private practice in Toledo Ohio in the United States. Born in Nigeria, he did his medical education at the University of Medicine & Pharmacy in Cluj-Napoca Romania. After a brief practice in Nigeria, he did his training in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine at Howard University in Washington DC. Dr. Okoro now resides with his wife and four children in Ohio, USA and a member of Corner Stone church, a global ministry under the pastoral leadership of Bishop Michael Pitts. His time is spent in full time medical practice and is deeply involved in medical missionary work to different regions of the world.

What Every Guy's Dad Should Have Taught Him

You are just one click away from changing your life forever! This book contains the key to understating how to live your life. From setting goals that matter, to learning how to balance a family budget, it’s all here; from concise explanations of how to be a good man in today’s society, to how you should treat each member of your family, all this plus much more. Finally, the comprehensive manual on becoming a man in the world today has been written. There is a staggering shortage of male leadership in our world; an epidemic of broken homes, and a lack of discipline or worthy examples for men to look up to has left our generation listless and searching. This is the book that will show you the way to be a wonderful father, a man of integrity, and someone worth being called Dad. This vacuum of leadership has left us a generation of men who want to be good husbands, fathers, and leaders but have no idea how and no clue where to look for the guidance that we want and need. This book also holds the key to selecting a mentor and getting the most from this relationship so that the lessons learned here can be carried forward into everyday life. Begin your journey today with the stand-alone instructions for self-improvement and lessons on becoming a man, while learning how to find the person whom you can trust as your mentor for ongoing guidance and direction. How to set goals and actually achieve them, while linking them to your dreams and desires is described in minute detail with specifics on bringing it all together on a daily basis so that five years from now you will see the results in your own achievements. Don’t you think its time you started getting the answers you have been looking for? Discover what the real man inside of you looks like, what a good father you truly are and what a magnificent husband you can be? By purchasing this book today you make it your choice to do just that. Personal Note from the Author: I wrote The MANual in an effort to share with other men what I have learned over the years on my own. I did not know how to set goals, or even if it was worth it, nor did I know how to make simple daily life choices in running a family but I figured it out. I grew up in a single parent household with no strong male leadership in the home on a daily basis. The information in this book is designed to address the day-to-day issues of living your life. It contains my solutions learned through a lifetime of struggle, failure, and achievement. I have found over the years that many books have been written to help in every area of life; but not one of them offered a solution that applied to all areas of life and answers to those impossible questions that come up. Questions like “What do I do when my paycheck is $1000.00 and I have $1200.00 worth of bills due?” How would you answer that question? I encourage you to take the first step in changing your life forever. You may not agree with all I have written in here but that’s ok, the book provides a framework for forging your own path in life and how to make your own choices. Your life is the sum of all your choices up to this point. If you want a different life, then start making different choices. I wrote this book, not to tell you what to decide, but how to decide what you really believe and how to act upon it. By purchasing this book you are putting yourself on the path to a brighter future. Enjoy ~Flint Anderson

Too often doctors, therapists, and social workers ask “what’s wrong in your life?” rather than “what do you want?” Ronald E. Warner’s Solution-Focused Interviewing is a practical guide to talking to clients using a solution-driven and strength-based approach that empowers clients and helps them to find lasting solutions to their problems. In Solution-Focused Interviewing, asking questions about clients’ goals and resources ­– the strengths that will let them change their lives – is the basis of a three-phase therapeutic process that builds empathy before helping clients to set realistic goals and build a plan to achieve them. Based on more than two decades of solution-focused therapy workshops and Warner’s extensive clinical experience, Solution-Focused Interviewing is the first skill development manual based on this innovative tri-phase approach to interviewing.
