Vonda joins noted authors Dr. James Dobson, Rick Warren, and Bruce Wilkerson in offering their own tributes to fathers. Vonda's story, An Earthly Glimpse of Heavenly Love, explores the love of her earthly father, Bobby Skinner, and compares it to the love of our Heavenly Father.

Christian Women Online Book Buzz says:

Following up on his successful series, The Heart of a Mother, The Heart of a Father, and The Heart of a Teacher, Holmes has become a master at compiling stories that encourage and inspire.

Our generation has become almost fanatical about reality TV, memoirs, and blogs--we enjoy seeing REAL people live out their dreams and walk by faith. In this book of 53 treasured narratives, you'll laugh, cry, and be reminded of how powerful and important a father is to his family.

Holmes has blended a skillful mix of writers, including many well-known favorites, such as James Dobson, Rick Warren, Bruce Wilkerson, Phillip Yancy, and Kevin Leman.

For busy men who don't think they can take the time to read a whole book, these bite-sized slices of human drama will captivate them and remind them of their significant roles.

What better gift could you give your man than to remind him he's making a difference in the lives of those around him?
