In Their Own Words… or Pictures

“This is what my brain looks like when there are too many emotions and sounds and my brain gets a glitch it in and shuts down.”

“And this is what my brain looks like when God (in yellow) comes in and tells me it’s OK and to be still. His eyes say, ‘Peace.'”

We’d Love to Hear from Your Child

I can’t tell you how many times I have asked children, “Are your listening ears on?”  (As if they had a second set that weren’t exactly for listening… oh the stupid things adults say to children– I digress.)

This year at Good Dirt we are introducing a series of blog posts called “In Their Own Words… or Pictures.” We have our listening ears on and we want to hear what children have to say about God.

We’d love to see their picture, sculptures, poems, and narratives. Whatever they want to use to carry their voice, we’d love to see.

These can be emailed to

Our listening ears are on!
