Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you all know that I started a new blog specifically for children called Adventures for the Young Heart and you can find it here!
I started Adventures for the Young Heart because I have always been passionate about our children knowing God’s heart for them. So many ideas and perceptions of God surround us in our culture and I believe what A.W. Tozer said is true. “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” What we believe about God, whether we believe he exists or not, is distant or near, is loving or full of anger, has good intentions or bad, comes to us where we are or demands perfect performance and every other thing that comes to mind will greatly affect how we live.
God has always spoken to my heart in stories – especially when I was young. Even as young as three, I remember stories He gave me to help me understand His heart. I do not know that I always recognized that it was Him speaking, but now that I am older and see the gentle workings in my heart, I see that it was Him indeed. Stories are something that children understand. They are the language of children so to speak. Children will often forget facts, but stories will engage their hearts in ways that nothing else can. Stories and allegories often run through my mind and so I decided that it was time to write them down.
I am new at this fiction writing thing, so bear with me as I get my writing on and feedback is gladly welcome – especially you who are following my other blog. My goal is to keep the stories as short as possible while still getting the point across. The stories will eventually be grouped by category so if you want to read a story about identity, honesty, grief, love etc. you will be able to find it easily! The stories are going to be designed to be able to be used as devotionals with Scripture at the end to tie everything together. Enjoy!
