Book Published on Lessons Learned from Dad

Posted:

A child can learn a lot from their dad.

David Spickler grew up on a ranch near Grace City.
10 years ago his father passed away after battling cancer.
This fall Spickler published a book about the lessons he learned from his father.

(David Spickler / Author) "My dad before he passed away from cancer was an incredible communicator of influence. In the agriculture world we are really great at production but we are not always great influencers. And it extends beyond that even. When I got convicted to do more than just apply those lessons to my own life is when I saw my son getting to be that age when he is 5, 6 years old. I said, I really want to capture what my dad knew and get it down so I can share it with Luke and it quickly became obvious that this project was going to be bigger than even that."

This paperback book has evolved into a business.
David and his wife Alicia are the founders of Anchor Three--now helping others be better communicators.  

(Alicia Spickler / Anchor Three Founder) "We just realized once the book was together and we could read it cover to cover that it was something we wanted to share with more people and make available to others."

If you would like a copy of "What My Dad Knew" or learn more Anchor Three's courses and seminars you can log on to anchor three dot com or call 740-1449.
