Kevin Martin is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate his new book, "All is Well." The book is both autobiographical and biographical, revolving around Kevin's father, who passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) in 2019. Kevin shares how he coped with grief by keeping a journal, which eventually evolved into this heartwarming book about their close relationship, growing up in South Boston, and finding their best selves as a family. It's a story of faith, savoring life's moments, and fulfilling bucket list items, all with a focus on building legacy and living life to the fullest. Kevin's father was born in Boston and was a humble, gentle man who lived his faith through subtle actions and kindness towards others. He taught Kevin valuable lessons about unconditional love, faith, and the importance of education. The book delves into topics like forgiveness, not living with regrets, and building strong family bonds. Throughout the conversation, Kevin and Jedlie discuss the power of modeling behavior for children, especially when it comes to reading, community engagement, and embracing the concept of family, which can encompass a wide range of relationships. Kevin admits that writing the book surprised him, as he discovered deeper insights into the lessons his father taught him, including the value of forgiveness and self-acceptance. He shares that we should cherish our imperfections and remember that none of us is perfect, just like his father, who had a calming presence and worked to maintain good relationships with his family. "All is Well" takes its name from the last words Kevin's father wrote on a yellow legal pad during his final days at the hospital. The book beautifully captures the essence of contentment and a life well-lived.
