About the Author
Bruce and Elizabeth Carpenter have been deeply touched by the desperate needs of children around the world. They answered God’s call to give these children a voice by gathering and sharing their stories. From this calling, His Precious Children: A Story-Sharing Ministry was formed. Their ongoing passion is to work with needy children around the world and empower them through sharing their stories. Bruce and Elizabeth live in Columbus, Ohio, with their two dogs, Tippy and Zoey. They have two grown children, their daughter, Christina (husband Brian), and son, Zachary. They are part of the church family at Discover Christian Church in Dublin, Ohio.

This book helps readers understand more about the hardships and difficulty that people of India face on a daily basis, but more importantly, it focuses on the lives of the children. The beautiful stories portrayed resilience and optimism even under the most difficult of circumstances.
In America, we take our basic needs for granted - having clean water, access to fresh food, and good, safe shelter. In India, none of these needs are readily available and fighting for daily survival is the norm.The children learn to fend for themselves not only due to circumstances beyond their control, but in order to just live from one day to the next.
Precious Children of India allows the voices of the children to be heard. Their stories, though painful to read, give a clear picture of their reality. The children, most of them under the age of 8, have experienced and witnessed more than their little eyes should ever have seen.
To have a clear understanding of how blessed we are in America, please take time to read this book. Prepare your heart before you do read it though because you'll never be the same afterwards. I would like to thank Life Sentence Publishing for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
