God’s gift to humanity—and what we can do with it

From the December 25, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


As someone who works with ideas every day, I was intrigued when I walked by a bookstore window and saw a children’s book on display with this title: What Do You Do with an Idea? I went in for a closer look and found its message by Kobi Yamada irresistible, and its illustrations by Mae Besom imaginative and beautiful. It’s been on my sofa table ever since, to share with friends, and to remind me of its delightful message—that we can learn to love an idea that seems small at first but won’t leave us alone, even one thought odd by others, but which grows to reveal itself as blessing the whole world.
