Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

Oh yeah, you can leave it to Him, but don’t think even for a minute that you won’t have to participate and do your part.

I’m currently reading Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley and chapter ten began with this story about change:
