In these pages, Mark gives all men a step-by-step outline for spending a fulfilling hour a day with God, from spiritual enlightenment, to career development, to strengthening their message, to their own self worth. There isn’t a fundamental area of a man’s life that cannot be improved by following this 30-day study guide.Richard M. Devos, Sr.
Life can be challenging and stressful. As men we need to learn how to give God the first part of our day, so that when the pressure comes, we know how He would want us to respond. The First Hour study will help you be more prepared to live a life that honors God in your personal life, at home and at work. This study is simple and effective!H. Wayne Huizenga, Jr.
For many years, I have tried to make it a practice to give the first part of my day to the Lord through early morning devotion. I believe this to be one of the main reasons God has blessed my business and personal life so greatly. Mark W. Koch's book "The First Hour for Men" is a simple and systematic guide for helping a man dedicate his day to the Lord. It's well organized and helps with the difficult task of living a Christ led life in this hectic, busy world. For example, how do I apply the Bible to my daily life and responsibilities such as family, work, church, and community? There is a great need in any man's life for specific practical tools that truly help him grow in his Christian faith! "The First Hour" is designed to motivate a man to start a life-changing discipline of meeting with God each morning.Norm Miller
