We are told every child is born with a purpose…and no child is an accident. So, how come we struggle when it comes to helping our children discover the purpose why they were born? How come we prefer to impose our ideas and thoughts about why they were sent here by God? How come we often find it difficult accepting our children’s idea about it is they were sent here to do by true creator? “Daddy, why am I here, what is my purpose?” “What is my assignment on earth?” You can’t imagine the number of parents who would do anything to avoid being asked those tough, million dollar questions? Helping children answer the “purpose” question is not a stroll in the park. But help is not always far away especially from children’s ministers, teens coaches and counsellors like Kingsley Obom-Egbulem who have walked this journey with kids for close to two decades. That is why When Fishes Climb Trees was written. “As I pondered each day of my nearly two decades of ministering to children, teenagers and leading them to Christ I can help but ponder on the purpose question” says Kingsley. “And the more ponder the more I became even more amazed at this mystery called purpose and its connection with a child’s ‘talent and passion’ and how God- in His wisdom has packaged our wealth and fortune inside us such that we become rich by simply doing the things we love and loving the things we do. And any shift in that equation becomes a route to frustration, misery and ultimately poverty, and then an unfulfilled life that could either end in depression or suicide.” says Kingsley “So, what has this got to do with me?” you may be wondering aloud. A lot…if you are a parent, a grandparent an aunty, an uncle, teacher, school owner,counsellor, children;s church teacher and indeed any one who plays an important role in shaping the life and destiny of a child.
