Michael’s Jar is a beautifully illustrated, 48-page story about a little boy who has a special jar that holds all of his thoughts. He learns that good thoughts, can become good actions and that by spreading kindness we can change the world, one person, at a time. World-traveled author and artist, Ruth Mercy, touches the hearts of young and old alike as she captivates readers with a story of hope, faith, and the power of a thought. Michael’s Jar is sure to inspire and delight the child in all of us. The best thing we can give our children are these magical things called “thoughts”, and inspire their minds to think about a very good God who is a Father and near to us in good times and bad. Those thoughts will become lights in the “jar of their hearts” that will guide them for the rest of their lives.
