I distinctly remember the first 'minute' when I met Wess Stafford and was encouraged by the heart of Christ in him. For this reason, I can't imagine a better person to write on the subject of maximizing our minutes to show the love of the Father in heaven to children all around us in the world.

Over the years that Wess Stafford and I have become good friends and ministry partners, one thing has become crystal clear: Wess' unbridled devotion to children, especially those in deep poverty, knows no boundaries. That's why Just A Minute is so pivotal. It will remind you who it was that launched your life-and who deserves your thanks. And more importantly, it issues an impassioned plea to make "Just A Minute differences" in the lives of the children all around you. I know of no better man to proclaim that today. . . right now is your moment to change a life forever.

My dear friend, whom I lovingly call "Uncle Wess" has written a treasure of a book called Just A Minute. Full of incredibly moving stories, Wess' writing inspires us all to realize that every interaction with a child has the power to change his or her destiny. Wess' integrity, compassion, and love for Jesus has had a profound impact on my life. One cannot encounter him in person or in writing and not be changed. Prepare to be encouraged and moved!
-Rebecca St. James, Singer, writer, and actress
Knowing how "in tune" Wess is with children, it doesn't surprise me that Just A Minute came straight from his heart and his experience. Wess has always been a champion for children and in Just A Minute he makes us champions as well. Whether it is a special encounter or a lifelong commitment to child development, Just A Minute helps us all shape kids who will create healthier families, communities, and countries-not to mention finding their own special place in the world.
-Dr. Gary Chapman, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestselling book, The 5 Love Languages
Jesus called children 'my little ones,' and gave a stern warning to anyone who would cause a child to stumble. This book is a challenge for every follower of Jesus to take notice of the little ones in our midst, and to show them we love them because He first loved us.
