Eagle Scout, Sunday school teacher, ordained deacon, college degree, soccer player, soccer coach, mountain hiker, extensive traveler throughout the US and Europe, long-distance runner (over 250 races), downhill skier, holder of six professional designations in insurance and risk management, partner in an insurance agency and two travel agencies, author of insurance articles for a local business publication, fifth-degree black belt, karate instructor for forty years teaching over two thousand students, guest lecturer at Penn State University regarding safety and risk management concepts, safety inspector all over the country, and an avid reader—especially biblical history.
Sylves shares, “On my thirty-third birthday I received the greatest gift anyone can receive—the birth of my son. He is my one and only, so I refer to him as ‘my favorite son’ and he refers to me as ‘his favorite father.’ Good combination.
“As he was growing up, I would ask him to do something, and as a good child, he always asked why. At some point in time, I got tired of all the why questions and just said, ‘Because it is in the adult handbook.’ He obviously had no clue what this was, and to be honest, I didn’t either, but I explained he would get a copy of it on his eighteenth birthday. Over time it became a bit of a joke with him saying, ‘Yeah, I know, it is in the adult handbook.’ My mother-in law told me that after all these years of talking about this book, I had better write it. I did and gave it to him on his eighteenth birthday.
“We had a lot of fun with this over the years. My little boy is now thirty-seven with a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Even though this book was written for my son, everything I have written applies to everyone. I hope you will think about writing a book for your child(ren). It is very rewarding for all.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Craig Sylves’s new book will bring helpful guidance and a sense of understanding as readers set out to embark on a new stage in life.
Sylves’s love for his son is apparent within the pages of this lighthearted message of encouragement, faith, and family values.
