Quotations collected over 30 years of speaking and writing on serving others (plus a few additional bonus stories by the author). The second half of the book contains stories and thoughts collected over many years serving as a special needs camp counselor, Sunday School teacher, Small group leader for children in crisis, and as a family advocate at a crisis shelter
We live in a dangerous, scary world. Most kids are lucky enough to be sheltered from the worst of it. Unfortunately, for far too many the world is a confusing and scary place. This book is dedicated to the kids of the world who are marginalized and hurting, for any reason, and to the ordinary people who give their own time and energy to try to serve them.
Because of the people, campers and counselors, on the pages of this story I am a better person. I have been taught the real meaning of courage, perseverance and unconditional love. I have been shown a standard I can only hope to one day live up to and I am deeply indebted to each of them for that.
