Just a Minute by Wess Stafford

When I first started reading "Just a Minute" by Wess Stafford, I felt like I was reading an advertisement for Compassion International (an observation, not necessarily a bad thing) and a book by Paul "Now You Know the Rest of the Story" Harvey.

Although this book was not at all what I had expected, I did find it to be worthwhile.  It is a great reminder that little things we do or say (or don't do or say) can have a profound impact on our children, positively or negatively.  This book is not totally candy-coated.  It includes some absolutely heart-wrenching stories of abuse in with the positive feel-good ones.

The book also is a great reminder that the adults we encounter in our lives were once children who have been impacted by people during the childhood and life.

All in all... God gave us two ears and one mouth on purpose.  If we took the time to listen more, talk less, and to think before we did speak?  Wow.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
