"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: I Heard Good News Today by Cornelia Lehn

A couple of weeks ago I shared the devotional we are working our way through called Extreme Devotion, this week I wanted to share a book geared to the younger crowd on Missions stories.  This book is a wonderful read!   They are true accounts of missionaries and missions, dating all the way back to the early church, continuing on with subsections of how the Good News was shared in places like Europe, India, China and on.  Its focus, of course, is how the Good News is spread by regular people like you and me.  The stories are not long and are presented in a story like format but with all the meat of a missions story! :)   Children can clearly see how important it is to disciple the heart for Christ with love and truth.  They also get a clear picture of how prayer is an essential discipline to this practice of sharing the gospel with those around them.  Fantastic book!
