Church youth leader Minors publishes children’s book
Church youth leader Elder Marion Minors has written a book designed to inspire children to develop a deeper relationship with God.
Young Warrior's Devotional Colouring Book, published by Balboa Press, provides “wisdom and encouragement from God to follow the principles found within his word”, the author said.
Ms Minors a former pastor, Sunday school superintendent and teacher, holds an associate’s degree in Christian Studies from the Salvation Army College for Officers.
In the book, Ms Minors shares quotes, scripture, and short tales that guide children to apply biblical lessons to grow their faith, live their daily lives guided by Christian principles.
Ms Minors said: “This book will appeal to readers because the stories are exciting and are related to the many things young people face every day. The colouring page after each story enhances the lesson taught.”
The author would like readers to take away from the book “that it doesn't matter how young they are, God is able to use them to tell of His love and that He loves them”.
An excerpt from the book reads: “You may be a member of a Church and feel because you are not a grown-up, God can’t use you. But if God can use eight-year-old king Josiah, he can also use you. Our bible verse reminds us that even though we are young, God can still use us. We can show others how to live when we follow the rules in God’s Word. We can be an example like Josiah.”
