Helping Children Discover a God-Given Purpose in 'Company for the...
In this tale, a young girl named Abigail sets out on a journey to find out if God has a purpose for her, despite her learning disability. Along with Abigail, readers discover that another character, who is part of the animal world, is also on the same journey to discover and learn about his own purpose and place in life.
Company for the Moon, peppered with Burdos own black and white illustrations, mirrors Abigails journey to self-actualization through members of the animal kingdom and their own search for truth and purpose.
The book came about during a family crisis and reflects my own continuing search for Gods purpose in my life, Burdo said. On this journey, Ive learned that God created every human being with an individual purpose and that fulfilling that purpose will always bring God glory.
Burdo hopes the main character, Abigail, will inspire children with disabilities to discover the meaning of their own lives. I want children to know that having a learning disability or other challenges does not prevent them from seeking and fulfilling their own purpose, she said.
Company for the Moon will help all children realize they have a God-given purpose that will glorify the kingdom of God as well as enrich their own lives.
