My plumber’s son accompanied him to my home to assess a leak on the side of my house. After hanging with his dad all morning and going to two hardware stores to get parts needed to repair my leak, six-year old Mason was worn out. While he made himself comfortable on my living room sofa, I chose two children’s books from the coffee table. Intentionally and I can’t say why, I chose not to give Mason my published books to read. However, about an hour later with one of my books in hand, Mason walked into the kitchen where I was sitting and said, “It’s hard to quiet my voice and listen to God. Do I have to close my eyes to do it?” I replied, “Sometimes I feel it’s easier to hear God when I close my eyes.” Mason then shared that he thought he had heard God’s voice once. He told me when he asked his mom and dad if they had called him, they both answered, “No.” I asked, “What did God say?” He said, “God called my name.” I love how writing and reading books can provide open dialogue with children about God!
