Lost & Found: A Pathway to a More Grateful Heart during the Pandemic

Elsie's screenpainting project

I’ve been so inspired by the children’s response to the epidemic: kids in my neighborhood playing outdoors for hours, kids on the news doing creative, artistic things to encourage first responders, kids on my Facebook page sharing the ways they’re getting through these weeks. They’re sitting around tables doing homework and projects with younger siblings, gardening, cooking, even building treehouses and learning new art techniques!

Elsie Brown, daughter of my friend, Sandy Nelson, is one of those kids who is inspiring me. She and others I interviewed for a post today on the Christian Children’s Authors blog are helping me focus on what we’ll miss when this pandemic is over, giving me a more grateful heart today. I hope the kids help you, too!

Have a great day, and I hope all the mothers, aunts, and friends who are helping the kids get through these interesting days had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!

Stay safe and well!
