Ricky the Racecar

It was so much fun writing and publishing Rick the Racecar for children. The illustrator, Jeremy Wells, did an amazing job. This book was inspired by one of my grandson's races. I watched as every scene in this little book unfolded.

The goal of the book is to teach our little ones that good sportsmanship is always good. We show it when we do the right thing and embrace a loss as a lesson learned with a good attitude toward the winner with encouragement to press on to the next time.

A loss doesn't mean the end of the road. It is an opportunity for a future win as we strive to learn and apply what we are learning to the next time.

I think of the Apostle Paul when he said in 1 Corinthians 9:24, " a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize. So run that you may obtain it." What prize is he speaking of? He used this illustration for the people to relate to the games in an arena. But he spoke metaphorically of the reward obtained by a faithful believer.

Any race normally has a prize at the end. But the one most important comes as a result of our faith as we are prepared for the finish line of life - our heavenly home. God is faithful to us as we are to be to Him.
