God's Spirit in the Heart of Every Child Paperback – April 28, 2010
About the Author
Michele Zink Harris is a physical therapist, educator, wife, mother, and friend. Through these roles and opportunities, she meets extraordinary people. Her healthcare career is focused on children and adults living with traumatic injury or progressive neuromuscular disease. Michele cherishes the daily opportunity to witness the capacity, faith, courage, and triumph of the human spirit. These remarkable people knit the fabric of who she is. In 1999 Michele embarked on the decade that transformed her life. She and her husband David are blessed with three precocious sons. Michele became inspired to write as she pondered how to successfully speak spiritual truth into these young hearts and minds. Our children will grow up in an unprecedented scientific and technological world. While science offers the marvel of discovery, she also wants our next generation to realize and utilize the grace and power offered in God's two great spiritual laws of love. Michele published her first children's book, "God's Spirit in the Heart of Every Child," in the spring of 2010. Her work appears in the "Write for Charity" Parenting Anthology published May, 2010. Michele's blog and website can be found at www.nextgenerationhearts.org. It has been said, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Michele must have been ready because she was graced with the appearance of three. A.J., Kyle, and Joshua, are her greatest teachers.

This book is the story of seeking and finding a way through the challenges of living and growing that everyone faces, no matter the creed or skintone.
The idea that if we slow down and look inside we can grow from insights not otherwise available can be difficult to teach a toddler or a middle aged parent, but this childrens' book handles it with graceful clarity of vision.
The spiritual nature of this book sets it apart from fairytale story books, and brings the spirit to rest firmly inside us where respect and honesty can grow. Although i find the language is consistent with christian theology, i think there are few cultures or people's of other faiths that wouldn't gain from including this book in any study of spiritual formation. i feel this telling of the two greatest commandments is an important advance in spiritual dialogue, devoid of all dogmas but love. Love god, love your neighbor as yourself and love the Next Generation's hearts by reading them this book as i do my 2yr old son who requests the reading of it as his "god book". This book has been a hit with everyone i've introduced it to, and the reaction is always, "I've got to get that book..." i can't help but think when this book is distributed widely in all languages world peace may yet be possible.
