9781515175704: Diamonds Lost in the Sand: Gems of Wisdom for Educating Our Children

Diamonds Lost in the Sand is a ‘must-read’ for all those interested and involved in any way with the raising and educating of children—leaders, teachers, parents and all home-educators. n this book David shares valuable and proven principles of wisdom which are like diamonds, often buried in the secular sands of culture. David holds them up to the light and offers faith-based wisdom for education: character development, behaviour management and a wealth of insight into children and their needs. A book to use and treasure. "I have known David for many years, I have watched him live out these lessons in his work and along with many others I have been a beneficiary of his wisdom. My suggestion is this; enjoy this book as you would a good meal. Savour the contents, consider the flavour, chew it thoroughly and digest it slowly. When that is done, the goodness contained within it will begin to be evident in your own life and work, then both you and your pupils will reap the benefits." Graham Coyle, National Leader (England) of Christian Schools’ Trust
