Book Review: The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won a World Series by Tom Friend with a Forward by Tim Kurkjian

The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won a World Series by Tom Friend with a Forward by Tim Kurkjian

“The Chicken Runs at Midnight”, it kind of sounds like one of those nonsensical codes we used to hear about in spy thriller spoofs.

Instead, this was really a miraculous message from a teenage girl who had gone to be with our Lord, to her family.

The book The Chicken Runs at Midnight: A Daughter’s Message from Heaven That Changed a Father’s Heart and Won a World Series by Tom Friend with a Foreword by Tim Kurkjian shows readers that it is also a message to all families. This would make a good Focus on The Family book.

There are multiple Christian and other messages in this book. One of the most important ones is that we, as parents, may not realize how every word we say to a child changes the child’s life, whether it be for good or for bad.

Speaking as one who has been in a coma, I (David) know that the advice given by the nurse was exactly right. People in comas do hear and understand everything that is going on around them. The family did the right thing.

We give The Chicken Runs at Midnight all five stars and five boxes of facial tissue to wipe away the tears. Happy tears and sad tears. This book is extremely well written. In this day of books being published at a super fast rate, they often miss wrong spellings of words, bad grammar, and editing problems. I found none in this book. A rare case indeed.

Ask

“Ask”…that is something that I’ve been doing my entire life, asking questions.  I drive folks crazy with the questions. I refuse to take things just as they are told to me. I ask a thousand questions to more fully understand and make sense of whatever it is. Sometimes I ask questions, not for my own benefit, but to cause the other person to think. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

Asking questions is one of the best ways to learn. In my opinion, you don’t learn if you just go along with the flow and accept everything as it is presented to you. Go at it with the whole who, what, when, where, why, and how routine.  My favorite one to ask is, “Why?”

Encourage the art of asking in your children. Don’t stifle their curiosity. Answer their questions! Encourage that thirst for knowledge and hunger for learning.
