THE CHARACTER TRAIT JOURNAL More than educational, physical and mental attributes one may have, a person's success in life will, in fact, be determined by their character. It will decide how far a person goes and how long they stay there. According to a recent study, character determines not only our success but also our happiness. Rather than reading a character book and forgetting it, this book gives you a proven way to easily and enjoyably engraft these traits in your heart so you can act on them automatically and not forget them. This concept is so powerful, reviewers are calling this book "The silver bullet we've been looking for." and saying it can incredibly "save the next generation."

About The Spirit of Texas
AN EXCITING ACCOUNT.
A RICH, EXCITING STORY.
"The Spirit of Texas" is a historical family insight of one state's reflection of "American Exceptionalism." Raw, rugged men and women of noble character building a nation from grit, courage and compassion. A free, industrious people, unyielding to defeat and seeing their cut of cloth as identical to our Framers who were independent, self-reliant and God-fearing. The "Texas Spirit" is still alive today and that Lone Star still carries the weight of 50 not bowing to perverse ideology but acknowledging the laws of nature and nature's Creator. That spirit still stands today as a "beacon of light" in our schools, churches, centers of commerce and government for a whole nation to draw upon.

Bravo! The Spirit of Texas tells the truth about the real Texas and the people who first settled it. Being raised in this ranching territory as a descendant of ranching families, I can testify that this is a genuine story of a West Texas pioneer family that managed to succeed in spite of many hardships. Through these difficulties and their love for the Lord they became stronger. The spirit of Texas is still alive and well today in this great state because of our ancestors' true grit and independent spirit. God bless Texas!

"The Spirit of Texas is the story of one family's heritage, the building of their ranches as well as their participation in the construction of the great state of Texas around them. It is a wonderful personal story that will engage and delight many Texans young and old and would be a perfect supplement to Texas History for students and adults alike. It is not one of those histories that has been "sanitized" to remove any reference to our ancestors' Christian faith but faithfully presents life as the pioneer Texans lived, worked, struggled and died for it."

Among the sons of Scotland are famous explorers and botanists who visited faraway lands including one who was the first European to ascend Hawaii's mighty Mauna Loa and another was first to the North Pole. They discovered new plants and animals and performed grand experiments. William Menzies, the subject of his biography, called The Spirit of Texas was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and as a baby immigrated to Canada with his family in 1856. He settled in West Texas, where he met and married Letha Ann Chastain in 1888.
The Spirit of Texas, written by his great-grandson Winston Menzies, records how his great-grandparents survived against all manner of trials, prospered and raised eight children on a remote Texas ranch by the San Saba River. They succeeded by their faith in God, hard work and dedication to family and to one another. The Menzies story is an intriguing, adventuresome reminder of the pioneering spirit that made rural Texas so unique. It is also an admonition of how we have abandoned so much of what made this nation possible. As the author observes in his epilogue, "If we lose the history of where we came from, we certainly won't know where we are going. God help us to at least leave it the way we found it and, hopefully, by His grace, make it even a little better."
