Distinctively Christian; A Christ-centered approach to Early Childhood Teaching & Learning
Book 3 in the Distinctively Christian Series by Dr. Milt Uecker
The Japanese have a concept, Ikigai, that when translated means "a reason for being."
This idea reflects the biblical perspective that God has designed each of us for a purpose.
For some, it is discovered during childhood.
My desire for those who read this book is that you view early childhood education and your role within it as a means of glorifying God and experiencing a life worth living.
I also pray that God will provide readers with a renewed passion or redirection so that you can experience Ikigai in your life and ministry.
