The Courtyard is pleased to announce Teresa Barger, local author of “Little Man’s Journey, The Mountain” will be holding a book signing Friday, March 25, 2016 from 1:30-4 PM at The Courtyard, 320 East Main in Carmi.
“Little Man’s Journey” is a series of stories that every child needs to hear to build strong faith in our Lord. The stories are filled with lessons about our journeys in life and how to deal with daily struggles. The books are full of colorful illustrations that children and adults will enjoy.
The first story of the series is “The Mountain,” Little Man discovers that life’s journey can sometimes become difficult. While worrying about the mountain he faces in the future, he is unable to enjoy his day-to-day journey. When he decides to take matters into his own hands, he leaves the path the Lord put him on. Finally realizing that he can’t defeat the mountain by himself, he has to rely on his faith and discovers the Lord’s path is always best. Most of us have been in Little Man’s shoes. Maybe it’s because we don’t have enough faith in God, or we are afraid He won’t help us, or it could be pride that causes us to feel like we have to do things on our own. Whatever the case may be, just like Little Man, if we aren’t careful, we can get off the right path and cause ourselves a lot of unnecessary hardship. Come along with Little Man on his journey as he finds faith in the Lord.
The second story in The Little Man series is “The River.” It is about Salvation and how we should never be ashamed of our Christian Faith even if we are made fun of. It will be coming this summer! Followed by three more. “The Desert” is about Envy, and how it can dry up our heart, if we allow it to. “The Garden” is about Pur-pose. We tend to think that our weaknesses make us defective, but God uses them for His purpose. “The Cavern” is about letting The Light of Jesus shine from our hearts while in dark places. Through a Character named Little Man, God shows our children how important they are and how much He loves each one of them.
