“Arnold Palmer helped me become a better man, a more devoted husband, loving father, effective coach, and successful business executive.” Most people think of Arnold Palmer as the King of Golf. But for more than a quarter century, Brad Brewer has known and observed Palmer in the roles of employer, business partner, teacher, competitor, father, grandfather, philanthropist, and global celebrity. Above all, Arnold Palmer is Brad’s friend and mentor, a man whose character both on and off the links has taught Brad how to be a winner in life at large as well as at golf. Now Brad passes on the wisdom that he and others have learned from the King of Golf. Mentored by the King shares with you the true stories of other golfers who have competed with Palmer through the years, as well as Brad’s personal accounts of traveling, working, and just hanging out with Arnold.

The secrets shared in Mentored by the King include: • some deceptively simple principles that can change your life • the magnetic attraction of excellence • the power of an optimistic outlook • why risking big is the ticket to living even bigger • the life force of victory: persistence • ... and plenty more. These quick, easy-to-read chapters let you step inside the mind and life of the King, Arnold Palmer, to glean insights that can boost you own trajectory toward a successful, satisfying life.

Do you secretly think that the harder you work, the more God is pleased with you? You can live like that—for a while. But imagine what it might mean instead to unclench your teeth, loosen your grip, and actually experience God’s pleasure in you—not just in everything you are doing for Him? The Well-Played Life is a journey of a life filled with richness, fruitfulness, and creativity of living in God’s pleasure. Renowned author Leonard Sweet explores what it means to please God in the nitty-gritty of life; how that changes from the time we are 5 to the time we are 50; and how in every age of our lives, in everything we do, we can experience God’s gift of play. The Well-Played Life offers a new spiritual direction of enjoying (and being enjoyed by) God. Discover how a Sabbath way of Christian joy is not only possible, but also how we were designed . . . and a core part of God’s plan for our lives.
