The countdown is on for my new adventure of signing my book: “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” There are just 20 day left until I will be at the Oregon State Fair, and the Oregon Author’s table. The fair runs from August 26th- September 5th. If you live near come by and see me. I would love to chat with you.

What can we do as parents to be a good example to our children? We should realize that everything we do is being watch by them.

We are living in an, “Monkey see, monkey do,” world. If you are a kind and understanding parent, your children will probably be kind and understand. If you drink, your children will probably drink. If you take drugs, your children will probably take drugs. I think you get the picture.

Take an inventory of your life. What do you see? Is your life one you would be glad for your children to have?

I wasn’t always the perfect parent. Sometimes far from it, but I stuck to my Christian principles, and raised children that did the same. All three of my children are Christians, and they married Christian spouses.

You can say my job is done here on earth, but we are to be examples until we take our last breath.

“Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” is a book I wrote sharing some of the, not so wonderful, sides of my life, and how I coped.

I was once sitting in my Explorer and deciding if I wanted to check out of this hotel called earth. the book talks about that, and gives hope to those who may be near the same spot. It also helps those who may be struggling with, anxiety, fear, depression, self-doubt, addictions, hopelessness, and many other of the usual suspects.

You may fit into one of those afflictions, or know someone who is. This books has been helpful to hundreds of people who have sent me emails, called me, or met me in person telling me it helped them cope, and changed their lives.

The book is selling for $19.99 on the retail stores, but if you order off of this site, you will get the special price of $15.99. The shipping has been cut in half as well. A total savings of over $6.00.

When you order you will also receive a copy with an autograph plus a personal note.

If you are interested, click on the tab at the top of this page that says, “bookstore.” you will then see a description, and a copy of the cover.

I hope you will at least check it out, and see why “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,”  has helped so many people.

Signs of Hope was on Talk Radio

I just finished a radio talk show interview, and Maxine Marsolini,  the person who interviewed me, reminded me that I don’t have  information on how you can have your story written in a future book I am working on that will have true stores of Signs of Hope that some of you have had in your lives.

What you do is share your moment where God did some miracle, or changed your life in some way.

Just send your stories to doug@dougbolton.com and if they are chosen you will have your “15 minutes” of fame writing in the up coming book. You will get credit at the end of the story.

What a wonderful interview today. I was able to share a great deal to reach out to those who are suffering in this economy, and talk about my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to survive in an Unfriendly World.”
