The book cover for Don Hodge’s new book, Things That Matter Most, was designed by Beetiful.
This book is a series of mostly unrelated articles that I wrote to my family over a period of several months in 2013 and 2014 as I felt the need to share my thoughts on various subjects. The title of the series is, “Things That Matter Most” with emphasis on the word “most.” For me, this was a time of reflection, renewal of spiritual growth, and discovery. Each article now serves as a separate chapter in the book. The book reflects my Christian values and world view. Now in my golden years, the book is written from the prospective of a practicing Christian, devoted husband, loving father and proud grandfather.
Each chapter has a different title and subject matter and varies depending on what was on my heart at the time of its writing. Each will touch on the things that matter to me and those that I feel are important enough to share with you such as attitude, character, choices, courage, pride, words, relationships, listening, success, professionalism, kindness, maturity, humor, and the like. In addition to words from my own heart, the book contain wise quotes, short stories, Bible references, and even descriptive images. Please accept each chapter in the spirit in which I wrote it – to my family with love. It is the hope of this book that each reader find value and perhaps, some pearls of wisdom to help enrich their lives.
