[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In this day and age of social media, it’s almost like pulling teeth to get some people to have a face-to-face conversation with another human being.

I was lying on the floor Wednesday morning with several others, all gathered around a very large sheet of paper, coloring. I engaged in a conversation with a little girl; let’s call her Sarah.

I started talking with her about her day and how she was enjoying art camp. At first she was apprehensive to even have a discussion with me, but eventually she politely answered. As I engaged more, her countenance changed. You could tell that she was thrilled that someone was curious about her. That someone had an interest about her life.

She then started asking me all kinds of questions. Every day questions that one would think are mundane but she was very curious about me and who I was. Her excitement grew as we talked about her family, art, painting, music, and then about our creator.

She loves God; he is a good and loving father. She knows her creator loves her and is there for her when she is going through conflict. Life is not easy for Sarah but through the expression of her art and with the knowledge of her loving creator, she has much hope and a bright future.

Today, I made a new friend through the art of a conversation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
