“Lessons From The Front Porch Swing”: a brilliant creation that opens doors to a healthy and Godly lifestyle. “Lessons From The Front Porch Swing” is the creation of published author Phyllis Parrish Alston, a first-time publisher. She is a licensed social work practitioner in the state of Alabama and is accredited by the Academy of Certified Social Workers. She has spent a lifetime encouraging, motivating, and inspiring others.

Alston shares, “Selma, Alabama, native Lula ‘Mama’ Sharpe possessed all the characteristics of a forceful Southern grandmother: undeniable charm, strong personality, ability to dish out unsolicited advice, unreserved love, remedies for ailments from broken arms to broken hearts, and a frank way of delivering the lessons she valued. Each day, weather permitting, Mama sat on her front porch swing while teaching, advising, and encouraging her two granddaughters and anyone else in the community she deemed in need of guidance.

“You too can learn life sustaining lessons from Mama as you read short vignettes about her life in this book aptly entitled, Lessons from the Front Porch Swing. The stories will delight you and the lessons can help you in all walks of life; at home, school, work, or play.

“Some of the lessons instruct you to:

  • Listen to Wise Counsel
  • Appreciate Bosom Buddies
  • Acknowledge Tough Stands Require Courage
  • Practice Self-Control
  • Make Life Special for Others
  • Never Tolerate Abuse of Any Kind
  • Avoid Dwelling in the Past

“Mama is not the only one to teach these lessons; her lessons are supported by quotes from the Bible and from famous historical figures. These lessons can benefit high school students, college students, and adults who want to improve the way they interact with their peers, parents, spouses, bosses, coworkers, and strangers.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Phyllis Parrish Alston’s new book is a helpful manual filled with a variety of lesson-filled stories that hope to reach people from all walks of life, touch their hearts, and inspire them with the words of God.
