The Littlest Acorn
Therapist and author, Anson L. Service tells the story of The Littlest Acorn who desired to be a mighty oak tree, but had a pessimistic friend (like many of us do, or it could be our own negative self talk) who tried to convince him that becoming an oak tree was too much work and took too much time. His friend pointed out perceived weaknesses and reasoning such as “Sure that all sounds great, but I just don’t understand, how could such a tiny seed grow to be so grand?” and “You’re small as small can be, with a funny looking shell. If you ask me what I think, you don’t at all look well.”
The Littlest Acorn listened to the wise words of his Mother Oak and as a result overcame the negative influences in his life by separating himself from them in every way, digging down deep into the ground (becoming grounded) and enduring the wind, rain, and even woodcutters (life’s tough experiences) to ultimately realize his true life potential and make his dreams a reality. It doesn’t end there. A surprising twist at the end with a major message of life awaits you as the littlest acorn, who has become a mighty oak tree, and his pessimistic friend, still an acorn, meet decades later. Read the book to find out what happens.
This field manual is an inspirational, action packed, exciting book for teens and adults alike. Author and Psychotherapist, Anson L. Service explains in very candid terms, unlike anything published before, what it is like to be a missionary in the Bible-Belt, what life is like for many modern Mormon teenagers and how to prepare to serve a mission despite the many pitfalls and obstacles. Fast forward to the experiences he has now where he relies on the specific skills learned as a sacred agent for the Lord (missionary). His decision to serve a mission will continue to change the world for years and decades to come and it is described as the most important decision of his life. This book contains valuable insights to help the youth increase their church activity, be patient with their parents and youth leaders, and most of all, remain or become worthy to serve as full-time missionaries. Using modern research methods the author shows correlations between missionary service and higher income, lower divorce rates, lower addiction rates, lower stress, greater feelings of happiness, and higher education than the general population of the U.S. Also included are valuable scriptural helps a missionary can use while putting into perspective the differences between Bible bashing and teaching with the spirit. Read how Elder Service and his companion narrowly escaped death, used hidden spy equipment, used a copy of The Book of Mormon to stop a mugging, and handled being surrounded by a motorcycle gang. Also included are details on miracles that occurred, such as saving a young girl’s life and braving a massive storm that resulted in a baptism. You will read about kidnapping, death, run-ins with televangelists, boxing matches, being called out to sing and play a gospel blues solo at a Missionary Baptist church, preaching from the pulpit at other churches, debates with the famed Zig Ziglar, and many other incredible experiences that make up Mission: Incredible.
