The First Stone

Length: 52 pages46 minutes


The strategy for living a life is tackled in the old Catholic catechism. For young readers the major questions are addressed immediately.

And, Why did God make you? God made me to know him, love him and serve him. But there’s another question that was not asked and is essential to developing the life-living strategy and that is How. You have to have How to develop a strategy. This essay is an attempt to answer the question How, specifically, How did God make you?

So here, instead of a sentence, is an essay to complete the strategy of What, Who, Why and How.
