A Child Shall Lead is an inspirational and compelling look at the lives of some very small people who are facing very big problems. Carla has given us a view into their world, with compassionate storytelling and spiritual wisdom. These accounts give us a reason for hope beyond hope, and help us to see light even in the darkest places. Mark Traylor - Pastor, Eastwind Community Church
Carla is able to capture the “essence” of the spirit of the children, families, staff, and people she has encountered on her life journey. The book illustrates the human spirit and she is able to eloquently express what God has done in her life through her interactions with others. As a child life specialist, I had the opportunity to see her “works in action” and through her writings, she is able to paint a vivid portrait for all to see of her experiences working with pediatric patients. Renee Hunte - MA, CCLS
Here are the seasoned reflections of one who has learned to see all of life—even our most desperate and dire circumstances—through the eyes of faith. Carla Hart has much to teach us about “becoming as children” as Jesus said, that we might see Him walking in the midst of every challenge we face. If you’re looking for an anecdote to the cynicism and irony that plagues this generation, you’ve found it in A Child Shall Lead. Carey Cash - Author, A Table in the Presence: The Dramatic Account of How a U.S. Marine Battalion Experienced God’s Presence Amidst the Chaos of the War in Iraq
In every profession you will find those who are, quite simply, passionate about what they do. I have encountered them in all types of positions and all walks of life. They love what they do and they end up making a difference in the lives of others while having their own lives enriched beyond their wildest dreams. It is who they are, and they really don’t know what else they would do in life besides what they are doing. In thirty-three years of ministering to hospitalized children and their families, in hospitals and camps throughout the United States, I have met no one more passionate about her work than Carla. I am honored to know her as a friend and so glad that she has opened up her journey to the rest of us in the pages of this book. Woody Wolfe - Director, Heart to Hand Ministries, Inc.
