Every now and then my cellphone rings and as I check the caller ID I put a huge smile on my face. I see that it is my friend, Frank Shelton. Frank makes me laugh, reflect, and prioritize my life. It is always a pleasure to talk with Frank Shelton. He is a great encourager and motivator.
Not long ago, Frank sent me a copy of his latest book, Final Approach: Career vs. Calling. I made the mistake of not reading it immediately. At the time, I was focused on my father’s health and keeping up with the tasks of the day. I wish I had known then the peace and comfort his book would bring.
His book is a reminder to chase our dreams, put God first, and to serve others. Each chapter renews the very concepts our great country was founded upon. His untarnished patriotism and respect for the working class creates a genuine nostalgia.
Each chapter contains inspirational stories, footnotes on American history, memorable quotes by great leaders, and many brushes with fame. His story will help you confront your struggles as you follow Frank overcoming his. Like his childhood hero, Rocky Balboa, Frank Shelton keeps rising off the mat to face a new challenge as he follows his quest to impact lives and help shape the world in which he lives.
The book is uniquely formatted and styled, and dusted with Frank’s hallmark use of alliteration.
In a day when the media sensationalizes every aspect of the news, it is refreshing to read Frank’s words and know that it is still okay to be patriotic, faithful, and kind.
Reading this book allowed me to be reunited with my friend over the weekend. I am already looking forward to his next work. Meet him once and you will have a friend for life.
I hope you will contact Frank and order your copy today, or invite Frank to speak at your event. Perhaps you or someone you know is need of some encouragement. Frank can be reached at:
A wise saying on friendship reminds us that, “ a friend is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be.”
