Welcome to my stop on Celebrate Lit’s Book Tour for author Jungu Olobia’s book Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God.” You will find information on this book and author here. Be sure to enter to win the giveaways!
Today’s lifestyle seems to have grown away from what is mannerly and polite. Some children have no idea the correct way to act, Author Jungu Olobia has written a book to help (if it will be read and absorbed). It is a God glorifying, scriptural based book on manners and being considerate.
Author Olobia has penned an exceptional book that is a guide for everyone and not just children. It explains and reviews family, social, and church etiquette and manners. Scripture references are given. There are seventeen chapters in this informative book dealing with family interaction, church behavior, table manners, greetings, and so much more. I learned things about other countries’ etiquette that I did not know.
Olobia has a lovely style of writing. Her book is part memoir and part instructional manual. I enjoyed reading about her life. She sounds like a woman with a heart for God.
I highly recommend this book. It would be glorious to see manners make a comeback. It gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me. I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but these are my honest words.
About the Book
Book: Considering Others
Author: Jungu Olobia
Genre: RELIGION / Christian Living / Personal Growth
Release Date: March 4, 2019
Good manners and etiquette begin in the home, or wherever a child is taught or mentored. From an early age, children learn how to behave, and as they grow, how to interact in their relationships at school, church, and in their communities. Though etiquette varies between cultures, practicing good manners is a kindness that extends across cultures, because the way we treat one another matters.
We want to raise and train our children in safe, healthy environments, but the daily encounters of a fallen world make it challenging. Much has been written on good etiquette, but this practical, captivating book points readers to Jesus Christ as the Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Teacher of good manners, clearly illustrating that the Bible is the Life Manual for good behavior that comes from God’s heart.
From biblical examples to personal examples, reflection verses and practical steps, and prayers and Scriptures to pray over children, Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God will help parents, teachers, and mentors shape and develop godly character and good manners in children so they may lead healthy, successful adult lives in their sphere of influence around the world. And there’s plenty of takeaways for adults too!

More from Jungu
As parents and guardians, we want to raise and train our children in safe, healthy environments, but the daily encounters of a fallen world make it very challenging. Much has been written on good etiquette, but how many books point to Jesus Christ as the Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Teacher of good manners? After almost two decades serving and teaching as a Sunday school teacher, about a decade working in an IT position at a College, and with much encouragement from my beloved pastors and family, I wrote Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God. Thank you so much for joining me today! It has been such a privilege and honor to be with you. We all love and care for our children very much, so thank you for allowing me to talk about my book, Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God. Writing my first book has been a walk of faith that has been both painful and joyous as I found out a lot more about my family history and how much I needed to pray! Thank God, however, for His love and gift of His son, our Lord Jesus.
Here is a question for us: What legacy do we want to leave our children? Proverbs 13:22 tells us that good people leave an inheritance to their descendants. That scripture speaks to more than a financial or natural inheritance. It also speaks to passing on virtues that build character.
