Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This story was inspired by the following paragraph in Mattheus van der Steen's book "Dare to Dream":

"Sometimes it seems like many Christians want to ride on the donkey, and they behave as if they are the king instead of Jesus.  God is looking for an army of donkeys who simply want to carry His glory."

About the Author

John is a child of God, a husband and a father of six children (four on earth and two in heaven).  He trained as a teacher at Oxford University, but despite this he still refers to himself in the third person.  He has used stories and his quirky humour to open people's eyes in more than 20 years of children's work. 

He wrote some online Sunday school resources and was shocked to discover that more than 30,000 visitors have stumbled upon them.  This made him think that maybe his stories and other resources could be used to bless people and help them on their spiritual journeys.

He lives with his family near Oxford in England where he wonders how his wife still finds the same jokes funny after nearly 20 years of marriage.

John trained as a teacher at Oxford University, but despite this he still refers to himself in the third person.

John loves using stories and his rather quirky British humour to open people’s eyes.

When he’s not wrestling with his work-life balance or literally wrestling with his four children, he’s wrestling with writing words on a page in his cramped study.

You can find him at his website: JohnSpencerWrites.com

John lives with his family near Oxford, England where daily he wonders how his wife still finds the same jokes funny after more than 20 years of marriage.
