Book 5/12

I found this book when I went to a parenting conference about a year ago. I wanted to buy the book, (mainly because I L-O-V-E-D the title!! Weird, I know!) but I didn't really want to pay full price for it. A few months ago I was at Lifeway and they had it on their bargain bookshelf for $4.99!

Dr. John Trent has some great books on parenting, spiritual growth and strengthening marriages. The first book I read this year was co-authored by Dr. John Trent titled "The Blessing". Review here. He is also a great speaker. You can find more information about him and his ministry at Strongfamilies.com.

This is a good book about not letting things/people distract you from your goals in life. Many things can lure us from the path that God has for us, but the good thing is we can learn to detect a skinny rabbit before it takes us down the skinny rabbit trail. If you're spinning your wheels and most of the time feeling emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted then you are probably chasing a skinny rabbit! Or worse yet, you could be a skinny rabbit leading others down the skinny rabbit trail.
