How long does it take to make a difference in the life of a child?
For good or for ill, individual moments in a young person's life can make all the difference in their future. It may be something said or done by an adult who hardly thinks about it: a hug, a compliment, an intriguing question, a sincere applause. But in that moment, the child discovers who they are, what is important to them, why they matter, and sometimes even what their destiny will be. Most of us want to help encourage and build into this next generation, most of us see the need all around, but we just have no idea where to begin.
Now, with this book, you know where to begin and you know that it only takes Just a Minute. Follow along as Dr. Wess Stafford, president of Compassion International, shares stories and experiences to introduce you to the difference you can actually make anywhere on the spectrum of child development. From helping meet physical needs to breaking down emotional barriers and from discovering latent talents to equipping with spiritual insights, these stories are a catalyst for action.
You don't have to be a teacher, a parent, a pastor, or a doctor to make a difference in the life of a child. You only have to be willing!
Tami @ ThisMomsDelight.com5 Stars Out Of 5Your Words to Matter!March 20, 2012Tami @ ThisMomsDelight.comQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5How many times have you had the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life, but walked the other way? Maybe those times weren't even apparent to you - at least they weren't to me.
After reading this book, I realized that I need to be careful with every word and even say a word when it's most inconvenient. I may touch a child's life in a way that will affect him or her greatly - and not even know it. That affect could be positive or negative - my choice.
So many people shared their stories in this book and they came to life as I imagined the child hurting or soaring, all because of another person's hurtful or helpful words.
There are children hurting, not just in foreign countries, but here in our own neighborhoods. Maybe it's even one of our own children? I know I am gruff with my children sometimes, and I plan to change that.
I encourage all adults to read this book, even adults who have no children directly under their feet.
I received a copy of Just a Minute: In the Heart of a Child, One Moment Can Last Forever in exchange for my honest review
