Through the art of storytelling and the prodding of the mysterious ancient Shepherd of Ecclesiastes 12, learn how to test the worthiness of stories—a collection of words that represent an author’s worldview. Discover how discernment is developed through stories that inspire godly character that is costly, compelling, and heroic. As absolute truth guides and new eyes discern, a child’s faith, endurance, and hope will open new doors to experience God’s faithfulness and love (Rom. 5, Eccles. 3, Song. 8).
