Timberdoodle's review
God continues to use this Bible-saturated craftsman-carpenter to write powerful books that address significant battlefields in the lives of young men. His original book, Boyhood and Beyond, has been a favorite among Timberdoodle customers for a couple of years. Now Bob Schultz addresses a challenge in all of our lives: how do we glorify God in our work?

A good education does not ensure a good work ethic. Timberdoodle has hired many teenage boys over the years and has seen some startling differences among them, but none of these as a result of their education or even lack of it. This begs the question, is book learning enough? This is the very question Bob addresses in Created for Work. Each short chapter includes anecdotes from Bob's own life as he labors to glorify God as he works. Not a pie-in-the-sky discourse on a perfect life, instead you will appreciate Bob's transparency as he shares his triumphs as well as his failures. While this is a timeless book for boys of all ages, there is a lot of wisdom and common sense for girls to glean from also. Like Bob's first book, Boyhood and Beyond, Created for Work is a book worthy of being read aloud and discussed with your entire family.
Includes an occasional illustration by the author's daughter

Great for boys and girls! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: blessed4xover  
Just as with Schultz's Boyhood and Beyond, this book has as many lessons for girls (and parents) as it does for boys. It not only spurs us all on to do an excellent job for others to see, but to examine the heart issues that motivate why we work (or don't work) the way we do. A very helpful and encouraging book.

Fabulous!!! Even with a high school senior! October 3, 2011
Reviewer: Deborah from Tallahassee, FL United States  
My son and I read and discussed this during his senior year of high school!  Wow!  What a treasure!  Both of us were spurred on so much!  And in every single job my son's had since he has been commended as an excellent worker.  My husband and I work with college students and have even used this with them!  After our time together in the Word, I consider going through this book with my son one of the best treasures we shared during 13 years of homeschooling!

Amazing Change March 28, 2011
Reviewer: Stephanie from KY United States  
I handed this to my son when his school Bible study ran out early. The change in my ten-year-old is amazing!!  He has always hated work of any kind and now he often pitches in and helps without being asked or complaining, and has put on himself the job of getting our 1 yr old twins up and fed!  He isn't perfect and I'm sure he'll have seasons, but I'll save this for a re-read for him later!  :)

Created for Work November 17, 2010
Reviewer: Renee from California Foothills  
As parents we feel it is very important to instill in our children a good work ethic. Mr. Schultz's book has created many opportunities to discuss this with our children. We have read it aloud to our family twice, and will again in the future.

Fantastic Book! October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
We got a lot out of this book--even my girls.  I read a chapter every day at lunch to my children.  We were inspired by engaging, humours ways he got to the heart of working for the glory of God.  We all were enriched and edified by this book!
