Conversations from the Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop
One would have to wonder how people like Denny Stockdale can take such simple words like FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, and DREAMS and use them as acronyms to help you discover your life. This is just what Stockdale did does in his book, Conversations from the Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop: 8 Keys to Rediscovering Lost Dreams and Finding Your Life's Calling.
This small, easy to read book is a road map to achieving your dreams. The book’s message encourages growth and change. The “reflection” worksheet sections included at the end of each chapter aids in putting your plans into action.
Stockdale, who physically resembles a real-life Santa Claus, really does have a wonderful outlook on life. I recently had the opportunity to sit with this talented author and life coach and got to know him a bit. It is easy to figure out how he came up with FAITH, (Find the Answers In The Heart), because Stockdale has a great deal of faith,; faith not only in his dreams, but in helping others to achieve their dreams. LOVE (Let Our Values Emerge) is what he is all about.
During our sit-down, at times I felt as if I really was sitting in the presence of Santa Claus. Stockdale smiled and winked just like that jolly man. I even caught myself thinking, could this possibly be Santa, and he just wrote a book on how to be all you can be? Nonsense!
Still, I think Denny and his book are filled with wisdom and joy. His use of acronyms and words really are affective and clearly will put your thinking to the test with his reflection exercises at the end of each chapter.
I give Stockdale five stars for this wonderfully warm-hearted book about self-discovery and love. Conversations from the Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop is a great read for people of all ages and would be the perfect gift just to give someone to say “I care.” Drop by Amazon.com or BarnesNoble.com and buy a few copies of this inspirational book.
