NYC writer Mr. Sandy Burrell’s book is invaluable guide for positive youth
NEW YORK – Aug. 26, 2022 – PRLog — New York, New York – New York City author Mr. Sandy Burrell has penned a most inspirational book for young people. SEED TIME is filled with basic and practical wisdom that at times is based on biblical principles and geared toward individual growth along with leadership development.
Commented author Mr. Burrell, “Seed Time was my attempt to write a book on leadership that was approachable to youth. The title came from a workshop I attended years ago at NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers). The discussion during the workshop was geared towards building up someone to take charge of things instead of dumping it on them with no clue what to do. Also included are discussions I have with kids mentored by me in the Acolytes at my church. So, parts of it are based on the relationship I have with kids in my group. As well as with their parents. With that said the book was written for parents to buy for their kids, but they can also read it as well.”
The author, stresses that a boy growing up can – at the very least – be challenging at times. “They (boys) are trying to figure out who they are and where they should be going. It can get very complicated, the various images of development and the influences out there. Circumstances can also play a part. Whatever background or inadequacies a boy may have inherited, my book SEED TIME shows him there is always a better chance and a better path to take ahead. SEED TIME is the path to inner strength to persevere, as well as how to be successful at what you do”.
Mr. Burrell’s very favorite passage in SEED TIME: “You may not set out to become a leader. But whether you are associated with a group or on your own you make decisions. So, to some extent you are a leader. With that said embrace the fact and move on. How effective and successful you are in a situation depends on you.” (Page 12).
