Parables for Life in the 21st Century — This is the very first book I published, and it was in 2005. When people ask me about the process of writing your first book, I’m really hesitant to tell them that it took me twenty years. Yes, twenty. I was collecting story ideas, story morals, and some business applications I wanted to use. It took a while for them to all come together into this format. Fortunately, the next books didn’t take that long! The book contains twenty-four parables, each with a story, its moral, and then applications for use in today’s life in the twenty-first century.
Some of the morals in the book might already familiar, such as Æsop’s “Slow but steady wins the race.” Others might not be as familiar, such as, “Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth doesn’t teach you how to feed yourself” or “Words, just like nails, can still leave pain and scars when they are retracted. Make sure that the words you use are kind words, not mean words that hurt.” A few of the story titles are “Roger and the Parakeet,” “The Prized Jacket,” “Slowing Down for the Green Light.” The book has been used in elementary school classrooms as well as the basis for a nation-wide Character Education program in Trinidad & Tobago.
