"Our focus is on how people can lead lives that are rewarding, enjoyable and helpful to others," says Oosting.

Originally broadcasted on radio and in print media to guide, inspire and motivate thinking and action, Kenneth W. Oosting shares brief essays of wisdom in his new book, “Ounces of Wisdom.”

The life enhancing guidebook uses both Christian and secular sources to encourage readers to live a positive life, regardless of their beliefs, by recognizing the various concepts presented in the book. In a world that comes across as negative, there are many things in life to be optimistic about. Oosting offers reflective questions to encourage readers to think about their own lives and to push them to think about their futures.

“Our focus is on how people can lead lives that are rewarding, enjoyable and helpful to others. Most of the quotes from the Bible are good advice for anyone regardless of the status of their faith,” says Oosting. “We have included bits of wisdom that range from John Wayne to the Old Testament. They are all designed to get people to think about how these thoughts could positively impact their lives.”    

The book has received praise from Tom Andrews, owner of Tom A Productions, LLC.

“I have served on several non-profit boards and I have never seen something this potentially meaningful to a person’s life happen so quickly. I truly believe that Ounces of Wisdom, with Dr. Ken Oosting’s authorship, is a blessing and an anointing. Further, I believe it will be a guiding inspiration to you and me as a reader and practitioner of its Biblical principles.” -Tom Andrews.

“Ounces of Wisdom” will help readers apply positive guidelines to their lives as they seek to grow as a person, be a leader in their family and relate with the general public. Readers can find the quotes from the Bible and from secular sources beneficial to living a positive life regardless of their religious status.
