Do you like stories about people? (Actually 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.
Staffordpoints 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.
