      This video is wonderful, thank you! It is so easy to fall into the trap of preaching, but who wants to read a preachy book?! Nobody!

      I will be looking up some of the books you mentioned.

      Amen! Both as a storyteller and as a school librarian, I avoided Message Stories like the plague. They insult the intelligence of listeners/readers. You’ve chosen some of my favorite books to illustrate YOUR message. Excellent models.
