There is a better path to take on life’s journey!

“A Different Kind of Tree” is about growth to become a better person. In reflection of your position on life’s path, you can determine whether you are growing strong and upright or not. Are you contributing “good fruit” to those around you? As the saying goes, hindsight is 20-20; growth is about reflection and a matter of perspective and contrast.

Christian author Haven Mankin: Trees equal valuable metaphors for life ‘A Different Kind of Tree’ equates personal growth to life cycle of trees OKLAHOMA CITY – Structured as a two-part lesson in how to grow closer to God, author Haven Mankin’s new book, “A Different Kind of Tree” (published by AuthorHouse), explores the tree as a metaphor for life. Throughout the first part of the book, Mankin relates a person’s development into adulthood to the growth of a tree – taking root, branching out and flourishing into a new being. The second half of “A Different Kind of Tree” explores the way a tree’s branches resemble the life paths people choose to follow, either a path of righteousness or a path of sin. “I hope that by showing examples within our culture that perspective can be revealed for each reader to see how society is impacted by all of our actions (good or bad) and how it is reflected by the morals, or lack thereof, of the individuals around us,” Mankin says. Mankin believes a person should “sink his or her roots” in Jesus, finding a stable foundation of morality, happiness and spiritual nourishment the author feels is necessary to leading a healthy and moral life. “A Different Kind of Tree” By Haven Mankin Hardcover | 6 x 9 in | 358 pages | ISBN 9781491833148 Softcover | 6 x 9 in | 358 pages | ISBN 9781491833162 E-Book | 358 pages | ISBN 9781491833155 Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble About the Author Haven Mankin has a theological background which extends from an upbringing in the Episcopal Church, study with Catholic Franciscan monks and more than 40 years of service in Christ.
