Just A Minute is a compilation of stories demonstrating the power a minute of interaction can have in the life of a child. Wess Stafford is the President and CEO of Compassion International and has had years of opportunities to gather stories from children and adults sharing their significant minute. Interspersed with the stories, Stafford offers biblical perspectives on the importance of looking out for those small opportunities to minister to children. Stafford encourages all adults to take just a minute, not just parents and teachers.
This is an excellent, amazing book. It is emotional and meaningful with stories that will make you cry. I loved it! In the conclusion, Stafford encourage readers to remember their own meaningful minutes, examine ourselves, forgive, and then look for opportunities to make a difference in the life of a child in just a minute. As a teacher, I am aware of my importance in the lives of my students and pray for all of my students. This school year I will be on the lookout for opportunities to give a minute.
I highly recommend this book for everyone. Even people with no children interact with children in public. This book is a light, engaging, quick read that leaves you wanting to be that person to make a difference in the life of a child.
