Young Justin wants only two things: to paint, and to be famous, like his dad. But his fatherís reminders not to make fame his goal ó to use his talent as God chooses instead ó fall on deaf ears.
Justinís art studies eventually take him to Europe, where he gains the adoration of the art world. His fatherís love and patient training have always guided him, just as his hand used to guide Justinís across the canvas when he was young. But as the workload and pressures increase, Justin begins to lose touch with his talent, despite his fatherís reassurances. Recognizing that his son is in trouble, Justinís father urges him to come home. It is there, at his fatherís hand, that Justin learns again about the things that matter most.
Joni Eareckson Tadaís gentle tale will encourage both you and your children as it paints a picture of Godís tender, fatherly love and His constant presence with us.
