My Daddy Taught Me That… takes us on a journey of a relationship between a man and his son, while showing readers the life lessons he instilled. His word was his bond, his sense of honor his guide.
Without doubt — no matter what the situation — he was a friend to be counted on in all things. He left a lasting legacy that will be remembered by every person with whom he crossed paths.
It’s the story of Bennie Lake, as told by his son Kenyon.
“Pop” was the name I called my father, a man who for decades was a
community leader during a time that was difficult for our entire
nation,” said Kenyon. “Strong, courageous, compassionate, gifted,
dedicated, God-fearing, and a respectful man…a man I am proud to say was
my friend. I learned from him while he was here with me, and how
positively he has impacted my life.”
This book has evolved into a work intended to inform, educate, and
enlighten readers on issues concerning youth in our society. A central
focus on the man’s role in the home, and his influence in shaping his
children, families, and our society as a whole.
Readers will find this book not only informative but also a great
motivation to live the type of life that positively instructs our
children and youth, and empowers our families.
