I think my book will offer hope and inspiration to readers on how to restore a broken parent/child relationship.

After teaching secondary math for over 26 years, author/teacher Geoffrey Woods now wants to educate the world about how to find the wisdom and strength to forgive.

Geoffrey Woods’ first book "A Case for Wisdom" is an inside story about his life and how he asked his father to forgive him for hating him after extreme challenges such as an affair. Woods’ had to find the wisdom, courage and faith to reconcile with his estranged parent.

“My relationship with my father was strained for many years,” said Woods. “ I took the steps to reconcile with him not knowing what would happen, and I’m glad I stepped in faith to reconcile with him.”

The book was a result of the speech he gave at his father’s funeral, which inspired him to turn his life journey into a book.

“I think my book will offer hope and inspiration to readers on how to restore a broken parent/child relationship,” Woods said.

A Case for Wisdom outlines the steps needed to acquire wisdom, and how wisdom guided Woods from fear, anger and hatred toward his father to reconciliation and a new understanding of forgiveness and love.
