About the Book
Our family passes on this true story with the hope that it may help you. When Dan was thirteen years old, he was diagnosed with a type of cancer. During his treatment, he read a book that suggested how a person could make changes in their life by practicing sitting quietly and thinking about what he wanted to change. Dan liked the time he sat quietly to think, and he called it his thinking time. With practice, he was able to change the times when he felt sick from the medicine he was taking. His thinking time also became his praying time. His thoughts were powerful, and they helped him feel better. The workbook at the end of the story is a guide designed for your child’s personal thinking time.
