There are many great children books amongst our community that are positive, uplifting, and encourages our children to be the best that they can be; not only does Cristian’s Journey signify those things but Cristian’s Journey focuses on a young boy who dedicates his life (literally) to serving others. Cristian’s Journey touches on the topic of a young child battling an ominous diagnosis. It takes transparency, an openness, and a willing heart to share such a sensitive and intimate time with others. I am 26 years old and even at this age, I am able to grasp a life learning lesson from Cristian’s Journey and that is to serve others. There is an art when it comes to serving others.. when you serve others with love, the same love will be returned back to you. It was sad to see Cristian become ill in the story, but beautiful to see the love and compassion he left in the heart of people. #ILOVEYOU10!
