My Father was a very wise man. He got his wisdom from the Bible. His name was George Nordgren.

My father told me that he read a chapter from Psalms and Proverbs every day. He told me, Psalms help you learn how to get along with God and Proverbs help you learn how to get along with man. One of his most quoted verses from Proverbs was Proverbs 4:11 in the Living Bible. It says, "I would have you learn this one great fact, that a life of doing right is the wisest life there is." My father read his Living Bible through every year for 27 years. He not only read it, he lived it. He wasn't a famous, he just owned a hardware store. Those that knew him would tell you that he was a honest, fair, loving and kind man. I took his advice about Psalms and Proverbs. This book contains many of the life lessons I have learned over the past 40 years.
