G’day everyone! I’m Andrew Dittmer, an Australian children’s fiction author. (Well, technically I’m an aspiring author at the time of writing this.) I have a crazy goal. No, I mean a super ridiculously bonkers goal. I’ll tell you about that shortly. First, let me tell you about what you’ll get if you read my blog.
Firstly, I will have a weekly book review. It could be a picture book, chapter book or a middle grade novel. I’ll just review books I like to help you find a great book to share with your little angel or rascal.
Secondly, I’ll have aim for a weekly giveaway. It will be a book, or a bookshop voucher or heavens knows what else that you’ll have the chance to receive
Now, back to my crazy goal. I’m on a mission to achieve an impossible goal. For as long as I can remember, the thought of people being caught up in slavery breaks my heart. Poverty leaving no option for many, others scammed into a dream job that turns out to be a horrific nightmare.
About a year and a half ago, I did a mentorship program through Kingdom Driven Entrepreneur and at the end, I set a goal to raise a large amount of money for Anti slavery organisations as one of my three-year dream goals. I can’t remember what I originally set, but I felt that I needed to make my goal bolder. What’s the point of weak goals when we have the most powerful being in the universe on our side? So, I upped the goal to $1M by July 2022. Holy smokes.
I have no idea how we can do it but I believe somehow that God will make this impossible dream come true because nothing is impossible with God.
“He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him.”
Psalms 72:14 NLT
Do you want to follow the journey? Perhaps even be part of it? Then let’s celebrate Children’s Fiction together and in the process, write happy endings to the stories of millions of precious lives trapped in slavery. Thanks for following my blog!
