Write Me a Children's Book
I read a lot of books and I generally enjoy most reading. I get something out of it. To me, a book is a little tiny piece of a person's testimony. There is, however, something I have found lacking as I have searched through modern books on prayer for children. Our books are teaching them to pray in order to receive something. This is not altogether wrong. If you need comfort, or healing, or food, ask God. The thing I have found missing is a simple book that teaches children to intimately talk with God and enjoy Him. Where are the books that teach how to quietly sit and listen for the echoes of the Holy Spirit?
When you are done writing that book, could you write one called, "You did not turn out fine." I'd love a rebuttal to everyone's programmed answer about participating in things that do not honor God or things we question our children's participation in. That phrase, "We did it and we turned out just fine," is a lie. We are not fine. We are in a terrible war against sin and when we participate in things that detract from Christ, we set ourselves up for a deep, often defeating struggle. If someone would have discipled us, we would be better than fine. That's my goal as a parent. Perhaps you could call the book
"Better Than Fine."
