I knew something was up around the Leman household…but I didn’t know what was up. Later I find out that Mrs. Uppington was being very sneaky and planning a surprise party! My first clue was when I woke up and my daughter Hannah and her husband Josh were on the patio in the morning drinking coffee — I was shocked! And I was hoping the other kids weren’t far behind…

And they weren’t! Kevin and Lauren flew in from California the next day along with other friends and family! The party was so great it made me want to be 70 all over again (and I thought that was impossible!) The best part was listening to all my kids and grandchildren talk about our relationship and what counted most in life to them.

To top it off my sweet wife bought me a 1950 Deluxe Ford – Little did she know that was my FIRST car. I paid 200 dollars for it. I think she paid a little more… She completely surprised me.

It was one of the those benchmarks in life that you don’t forget! Everyday since I keep thinking about how wonderful that evening was. How much love was in the that room.

It is a privilege to be a Dad and a husband, those are two things I certainly cut out to be!

Here are a few photos from our evening that my daughter Hannah took! Keep scrolling to get to the GIVEAWAY!

We saw you live at the Church of the Nazarene in Bourbonnais, IL a few years back on a “Date Night” and being it was our first time knowing who you were.. we really enjoyed our night listening to you. Not only are you funny but your to the point and many of the things you said really hit home for myself, my husband and our children. I posted as the instructions stated along with the video of your new book from Youtube. I hope to win so that I can pass this book to my daughter who I think has a powerful daughter and she is also expecting another child in Feb 2014. Thanks for taking the time on providing so many of your knowledge and information on many important subjects within the family. God Bless! :)

  • Donna Stimmell says:

    Happy Birthday, Dr. Leman! I saw you at a conference years ago in Fairmont, WV. I updated my status on Facebook using your example and my own words. I have one daughter who is 25. I gave my daughter a small book to read written by you. I can’t remember the name of the book, but it has something to do with finding the right spouse. She wasn’t interested in reading it. I’m not pushing it. However, I’m hoping that she may look at it some day, pick it up, and start reading. I have read other books by you. I’m currently reading, “What Your Childhood Memories Say About You”.

  • Suzie says:

    Our very powerful youngest child is 25. He had a motorcycle accident over a year ago with a resulting brain injury. This now makes his previous POWERFUL personality look like nothing. Needless to say it is very challenging. Would love to get some help as we are exhausted looking! Have enjoyed your books in the past! Thank You!

  • John Spencer says:

    I posted on the link on my Facebook wall in hopes that I can win your new book. I did make a typo on my email address… bummer. This post has the correct email in it.

    Dr Lehman, you’re so smart
    I love your books with all my heart!
    I don’t need a gift to let the world know
    how you have helped my family grow.
    I tell every stranger, mother and friend
    how your books have the tools to lend a hand.
    I will surely read your newest book
    Then share it with every one who’ll look
    No counselor or class has helped us more
    Thank you dr Lehman, times a million and four!

  • Traci Petersen says:

    It’s probably too late, but I posted a link anyway–I’ve always loved your books! I have the “Have a New Kid by Friday”–I have four, so it was four times as helpful for me–and “Have a New YOU by Friday”–I have to admit I gave it to my husband.

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday! You are America’s Dad!

  • Rachel Abbott says:

    I’m so praying I’ve posted in time to possible win. My family is in such need of direction in which way to go with my powerful 12 year old son. Glad you had a blessed birthday, God bless you for all the wonderful advice, books, interviews and much more you do to help us understand and guide out children and selfs. Maybe if I win I will plan on keeping my powerful child and not ship him off to some far away land. (JP)

  • Karen Eddy says:

    I posted the blogspot and hope I win. I will share with my grown children

  • Alan Whitmoyer says:

    First of all, Happy Birthday to a man who is both older and wiser than I. Secondly, I read two of your previous books, “Have a New You by Friday” and “Have a New Kid by Friday”. Finally, it would be nice to read a third book signed by you. If I can’t see you face to face, I guess that will have to do. LOL… God Speed Dr. Leman and thank you for a chance to win.

  • Tricia Postma says:

    Wonder if your book will read like you’ve been following my son around!

  • Elena says:

    I posted it on my facebook status and I hope I win :-) I like very much all your books.

  • Nicole Taylor says:

    Done, and yes, I’m the baby of the family and a major procrastinator, however, I actually JUST saw this today and did it immediately. : ) Happy birthday!! I love your books and I’m always hoping you’ll make a trip to San Antonio to speak (preferably at Community Bible Church). Happy Belated Birthday and I pray you have many many more.

  • I tweeted :)!! Would LOVE this book, hope I win!!!
    Not the baby of the family but the only girl and third of four kids does that count?! heehee
    Have a great day and come back to Springs Church Winnipeg soon :)!!

  • Margi Baker says:

    Step 1 complete – posted on Facebook. Looking forward to reading this book, free or not. ;)
