One Million Arrows (Blog Tour)

OMA Cover

Will the world change our children...or will our children change the world? Time is short and lives are at stake. Right now, God is inviting our families to become part of a bigger story—a vision that will engage hearts to make a radical difference. One Million Arrows is an inspirational call to raise our kids to impact their culture, community, and world for Christ. If we want our kids to discover their purpose, if we want them to live with passion for the Kingdom, if we want our family to go down in His-Story, accept the mission...and leave a mark for eternity.

Author Julie Ferwerda is recognized for making the Bible exciting and relevant to everyday life through her writing and speaking. Her articles are featured in many Christian magazines and websites for both adults and teens, and she frequently volunteers her time and talents to international orphan ministry.

I always find God's timing to be very interesting.   When Julie Ferwerda contacted me to participate in this Blog Tour, the horrible earthquake in Haiti had not yet happened.  When I received the book, I let it sit on my bedside table for a week or maybe two.  I finally cleared some room in my things to do list, and sat down and began to read this thought provoking and challenging book.  Throughout One Million Arrows, Julie mentions her love for the children of Haiti, and talks about the orphange that she and her husband have helped to fund and build.

Several chapters into the book, the January 12, 2010 catastrophe hit.   As I saw bits and pieces of the news coverage and heard of miraculous rescues of one here, one there I thought to myself these are some of those Arrows to be launched into this generation.  I doubt that it's coincidence that this particular Blog Tour is taking place at this time.   More, it's "for such a time as this."  In the days, and years to come we will not only sharpen our biological arrows, but will openly investigate the opportunity to invest in, sharpen and launch other arrows....for such a time as this!
