Review of the book Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson

I have to admit, this book is pretty boring and hard to get into it. It took me over a month to read it. But here is my review. I liked the quote on page on page 5 of chapter one that says " 2/3rds of those surveyed said the media is an important factor in our culture, and 68 percent said that the media's effect on the country's moral values is a negative one."I also like the quote on page 7 that says" suicide was the second leading cause of death among fifteen-to twenty-nine year-olds globally in 2012."I like the quote on page 81 that says" Joyful is not simply being happy because circumstances are pleasant of fun; it's about being deeply grateful for those circumstances and for what transpired to cause the event." This book is basically about what traits you want in your marriage and what traits you want for your children to become and how to make that happen. It was basically a parenting book using examples of what worked for Korie and Willie and how the bible helped them out and they proved that by using scriptures and then applying them. I originally got this book because I enjoy the show Duck Dynasty and enjoy watching this family on tv, it makes me laugh and helps me feel better about myself. But the book was boring because nothing really fascinated happened in the story to get your attention. I need a more faced paced book.
