|Book Title||Contending for the Heart|
Jim Ertel Bio
After sixty plus years of living, forty nine years of marriage(to the same woman),two children and six grandchildren,there are but a few things that have stood the test of time; God's unconditional love for me through His Son, Jesus Christ, and the unconditional love that the wife of my youth has so graciously bestowed upon me. I have also come to a few immutable conclusions about myself; I 'm flawed in character, an expert in nothing, a seeker of truth, and most important of all, completely dependent upon the grace of God. Perhaps you will see this in my writing. Some call me "Grandpa Jimmy"
Parents are asking, "How can I control my child's behavior when they are being subjected to so many opposing outside influences?"
As reasonable as that question may seem, it's the wrong question. We should be asking, "How can I influence and win the heart of my child?" Contending for the Heart is a collection of short stories about real families who found that correct behavior naturally follows when you contend for and win the heart of your child.
