About the Author
Tom Spence is the pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Burns Flat, Oklahoma. He serves in an area where many children have never been told that God loves them. Many of these children have parents who have told them that they love them. But what do those words mean when these same parents don't want to have any more to do with their own children than they must. What does "I love you" mean to a child left to get dressed, find something to eat or not, and get to school without any assistance from a parent too hung over to get up and get them to FIRST GRADE! What does "I love you" mean to a child whose parents don't have enough to buy a winter coat, school supplies, or even underwear for their own children, but always seem to manage to scrounge the cash when the cigarettes run out? It is easy to be judgmental. That is not the goal of this brief message. The issue of parenting needs to be addressed, and will be in a separate book: Throw Away Kids. This short book is a message that every child needs to hear, understand, and believe regardless of their life experience. God Loves you. God Loves you. God loves you. There is not a lot of biography in the author biography. Here's the short version. Tom is a retired Marine Officer. He has been an independent trainer and consultant. He has been an addiction treatment counselor. He has been a news paper manager. He is called to deliver this simple message to as many people as he can--especially children--God loves you. God loves you!
