Wess Stafford has written a book that will touch the heart deeply of anyone who chooses to read it. The short stories shared will deeply touch your heart and you will be looking around for children that you can give a minute to. We need to be reminded of the value of a child's life in the world today and the very positive influence that each one of us can make.
Each of us can have a positive impact on the life of a child if we choose to take "just a minute" for a kind word or gesture! I believe that it is so important for every individual to know that God loves them, no matter what, and to accept Jesus into their heart. It can truly be the difference between life and death/good and evil/being able to cope with difficulties and not, etc! I think the stories in this book prove that a moment, or sometimes several moments, really can make all the difference in the world.

Do you like stories about people? (Who doesn't?) This book contains short true-life stories, most of which will make you smile. For some, have tissues handy because you'll need to wipe away tears. A few relate difficult moments that discouraged someone or turned their life toward evil.
The author especially writes about how an unplanned minute or two can change the life of a child. The book will convince you that no matter who you are or how old or young, you can do many small things to make the world (and other people) better. You can do things that the folks you interact with will never forget. You may forget those little things you did, but you'll have impacted lives in major ways.
Stafford points out how important children are to Jesus and how angry God is when someone harms a child. God loves every child in a special way.
The author, a Caucasian, grew up in a small African village and has spent his adult life rescuing hurting, poverty-stricken children. He travels worldwide, speaking, promoting his several books and his work with Compassion, International.
