Love is superior, family is mighty, and we were put here, not for ourselves, but for each other. These are the core values that were passed down to me from my grandfather. Don’t chase the chickens because one day one might just chase you back, beer is more than just a breakfast drink, and do what you want, not what you’re told… these were also some things of value that were passed down to me from Grandpa.
Growing up just down the hill from my grandfather and his chickens taught me more about life than anything that I could’ve learned in school (had I paid attention). Learning how to stand up for myself, to lend a helping hand, to nurture, and protect the things I love, are just a few of the lessons that I learned while crossing that grassy path between his house and mine.
Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop is a book about love, family, youth, maturing, and all the learning that happens in between. It is a powerful, humorous, insightful, playful, and philosophical narrative about perspective and the lessons that I have learned growing up just as ornery as my ornery grandfather and his precious chickens.

Award-winning author Jacob Paul Patchen is a writer of books with a purpose. Since penning his first poem at the age of twelve and forcing his poor mother to listen to it, and every single one thereafter, she still remains his biggest fan. A former combat marine, college athlete, and part-time napper, Jacob does what he can to give laughter to those who need it, compassion to those who lack it, and love to those who cherish it. His books widely range in age group, genre, and talent. But he couldn’t be happier having the opportunity to do what he loves while hopefully inspiring others along the way.
More of Jacob can be found at jacobpaulpatchen.com and through some of his titles, which include At Daddy’s Hands: Courage Knows No Age, Of Love and War, Words That Matter, and Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop.
