Item description for The Incredible Discovery of Lindsey Renee by Joni Eareckson Tada & Irena Roman...
Overview Lindsey must decide between giving her money in the missions offering or buying a new sweater. This book is a tender reminder that God can do great things with our small sacrifices if we're faithful in the little things and leave the rest in His hands. Full color.
Sitting in the wooden church pew is the last place Lindsey wants to be on a Saturday night. Thoughts of the mall and her friends interest her much more than the missionary's stories. And giving five dollars to people she doesn't even know seems like a big sacrifice when there's a new sweater she desperately wants. Besides, what difference will her little five dollars make?
The choice is agonizing. And just when she thinks the decision is made, Lindsey makes an incredible discovery--a discovery that opens her eyes to the amazing things God can do with our faithfulness in everyday situations.
When we were young, our decisions were few and simple--should I share my crayons? Should I invite the new kid to my party? What should I do when my brother makes me mad? As we grow and change, so do our choices--should I loan my neighbor money? Do I have the time to stop and minister to that stranger today? And yet, even then, while some decisions are life-altering, others feel inconsequential. But God has called us, young and old, to be faithful in every matter--and that includes the little things.
The great truth of it all is that God uses our faithfulness to not only work in our lives, but in the lives of others as well. So whether you're a pre-teen deciding between giving to missions and buying the newest fad, or an adult choosing whether or not to help someone out, your decision in these "little things" can change your life--and someone else's life--forever.
Master storyteller Joni Eareckson Tada shares this powerful truth through Lindsey Renee's tale. The touching illustrations make the story all the more poignant, giving you an imaginative resource for teaching this truth to your kids so that even at an early age, they'll know their decisions do make a difference in God's Kingdom.

What an Incredible Story! Nov 8, 2001
The book opens with Lindsey Renee, the books main character and typical 13 year old, sitting in church daydreaming about the mall and new sweater she wants. Not really paying attention to the missionaries who have given their testimonies. At the end of the service, the pastor asks for donations for the missionaries. Lindsey is having a hard time parting with he $5.00 in her pocket because she would really like to use it to buy that new sweater. And if I tell you anymore of the book, I'll give away the best parts......let's just say Lindsey meets a very interesting new friend who steers her in the right direction. This is a wonderful story.....I can't wait to read it to my daughter!
