For good or for ill, individual moments in a young person’s life can make all the difference in their future. It may be something said or done by an adult who hardly thinks about it: a hug, a compliment, an intriguing question, sincere applause. But in that moment, the child discovers who they are, what is important to them, why they matter, and sometimes even what their destiny will be. Most of us want to help encourage and build into this next generation, most of us see the need all around, but we just have no idea where to begin.

Now, with this book, you know where to begin and you know that it only takes Just a Minute. Follow along as Dr. Wess Stafford, president of Compassion International, shares stories and experiences to introduce you to the difference you can actually make anywhere on the spectrum of child development. From helping meet physical needs to breaking down emotional barriers and from discovering latent talents to equipping with spiritual insights, these stories are a catalyst for action.

You don’t have to be a teacher, a parent, a pastor, or a doctor to make a difference in the life of a child. You only have to be willing!

    " Excellent book which really shows how committed Wess Stafford is to taking care of children as CEO of Compassion International; reveals how each of us can touch a child with "just a minute" moments for the good or bad, and how we can use our own experiences to create good ones in their lives.

    " It's amazing to think how just a brief interaction with a child can make an eternal impact. This book is filled with stories and testimonies of real life examples. You will view your interactions with children differently and will be challenged by the action steps at the end of the book. "
