Based on popular Periscope and Facebook live videos, Our Bond Is Our Gift is a book for those men and women ready to roll up their sleeves and dig in and do the work to become good men and women for themselves, their relationships, their families, and their communities.

This book is not for the faint of heart.

If you are someone looking to turn your life around, if you are someone looking for your mate for life, if you are a parent looking to help your young son, if you are someone wondering how you might be a light for others--Our Bond Is Our Gift will speak to you.

Author Keith Belvin guides you--through content, testimony, and reflection--on topics, such as understanding how anger and frustration can help you, revealing your truth through transparency, dealing with bad communication and learning how to be an effective communicator, making it through bad days, recreating yourself, fixing men (and our young men), and seeking the love we want.

No matter the relationship, the bond between those involved in the relationship is important. Let this book reveal the gifts found within the bonds you create.
