A child’s curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it’s protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child’s life. Let’s ignite our children’s natural love of learning!
Part of the vision of Joel says:
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: (Joel 2:28)
One person who definitely fits into this category is Akiane Kramarik.
Primarily a self-taught painter, Akiane started drawing at age four, painting at six, and writing poetry at seven. She began composing her own songs only a couple months after learning how to play the piano.
This girl is amazing and inspiring. She tells her own story far better than I dare:
Hearing her description of God’s physical qualities reminds me of Joseph Smith’s description:
His eyes were as a flame of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun; and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great waters, even the voice of Jehovah… (D&C 110:3)
Her paintings are astounding, and her talent limitless. Knowing that such people as Akiane exist serves as a testimony of a loving God who is eager to be part of our lives.
