COMING IN SEPTEMBER!

Don Reid has a new book coming in September and can’t wait for you to get your copy! This brand new book, LIFE LESSONS, covers topics of the heart and mind, often with related stories from the Scriptures. Ninety concise and to-the-point chapters speak to everyday topics we all may experience on any given day from dawn to bedtime. In March of 2020, when the Covid pandemic began closing churches and keeping congregations close to home, Don improvised an email lesson and sent it to each member of his Friendship Class on Saturday nights. From these weekly messages, this book was born and developed. There are stories that will transport you back to your youth and then bring you back to the present with a jolt or two of truth. The chapters cover feelings and insights from both secular and Biblical standpoints and often offer a humorous touch to subjects we all enjoy. Whether it is “Remembering Dad” or “Just Like Oscar and Felix” or “It Was Palm Sunday in Syracuse,” you’ll find your favorite chapters and read them over and over again. A great book for discussion in any class or book club.

If you order from this site, the book will be autographed by Don. The book will be released September 1, 2021.

We do not accept preorders through the Statler website.
