The Heart of a Child Presentation
Nikki shares the story about the Pro-life Prayer Pillows, their message and their three pro-life calls to each of us, but focuses more indepthly on the message regarding the heart of the child.
Jesus says about the little children, "The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." What is He telling us about the hearts of children? And how can we learn from the children that surround us?
How is the evil one trying to destroy the hearts of children and how are we called to combat that by spiritually, emotionally and physically preserving the hearts of our children?
Lastly, how do we become more child-like in our own hearts? For Jesus says in Matthew 18:3, "Unless you turn around and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."
