Book Description: Years ago, Wayne Nance's life was out of control. An incessant smoker, he weighed 315 pounds. His marriage was disintegrating and his finances were bottoming out. He finally realized that his obesity, debt and relationship meltdown were surface problems resulting from his core attitudes and beliefs. Then he began to bring his life back into balance.
My Thoughts: It is great and always wise to listen to someone who has good advice. Simply because one can learn and hopefully, not make the mistakes that others have made.
The 3-Minute Difference by Wayne E. Nance is one of those books. As I was reading this book I came to chapter 5, Don't Be Had by the HADs, I SO wish I had read this book before I went to college. Such good information about life, longings and living to one's ability. In this chapter Mr. Nance talks about how we are failing our kids in schools by not teaching them about obesity, debt and broken relationships (or better yet how to make your relationship work). This chapter is worth more than gold. And its more than advice it is life application. In this chapter on p. 86 Mr. Nance talks about how colleges "think" credit is good learning curve for students. Not so! Not only are college students coming out of college with a HUGE bill to repay but to top that off they have a terrible credit card debt!
Parents as well as older teens NEED to read this book. If parents get this idea into their thinking then they can help their children. If we all work together we can stay out of debt. A grand self help book!
This is a great read! Great information that helps one to make life changes not just keep on doing what you've always done to keep yourself in that pit.
This book would make a great gift for the high school graduate.
