Mini Children's Book and Blog Feature

March 11, 2018

This has been a busy week. Besides getting this blog up and running, I've spent the week listening to a series of podcasts from the Christian Entrepreneur Movement, hosted by Paje Rey. One of her guests was from the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics. I liked his piece so much I signed up for the Institute's newsletter. Tonight, I received their newest post and came across an article I wanted to share called, Helping Children Learn About Calling Through the Imagination by Dr. Andrew Spencer. It featured the book series, The Green Ember, by S.D. Smith. 


Based on the article, the book series introduces children to the ideas of 'vocation' and 'calling' and mentorship, and their importance to (themselves and) their communities. I haven't read the series myself, but I liked that these ideas and values were being introduced early to children. Also, the images were adorable.




I really appreciated the following quote by the author: "I do think there are varied routes to reach our callings, and many of us find them walking sideways.” It made me think of the times we sometimes think we know where God is leading us, only to stumble across an unexpected left turn, to wander next through the desert for months or years, before dragging our half-dead bodies into the promised land...In the end, we arrive at our destination but the road isn't always straight or smooth.


I invite you to visit the post and read it for yourself. If you do, I'd love to know your thoughts on it, the quote or any other points that come to mind by leaving me a message or comment below.
