 A family biography of Geoff Waugh

12 year old Dante wrote this interesting biography of his missionary and minister grandpa, illustrated with family and mission photographs. Here are some of his comments:

Geoff Waugh is my granddad about whom this biography is written. He has done many things and gone many places. These include Israel, Europe, Canada, USA, and he has taught church leaders in Africa, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Philippines, China, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Malaysia and every state in Australia.

Throughout Geoff’s life he has had faith in God. The principle that has gotten him through is “loving God, loving others”. This is also what he thinks is his purpose on earth, the meaning of life and the sum of his life.

Geoff hopes in the future that more people will turn to God and be with Him.

After learning about my granddad’s life in the making of his biography he has become an inspiration to me, an inspiration to do something good with my life and to travel the world. I hope my granddad will live much longer in his already long and fulfilled life. He has been very kind to me and to this I say, “Thank you Grandpa – The King of the Granny Flat.”

My First Stories

Young Ethan tells his imaginative stories at 3 and 4 years old, typed with his Grandpa’s help. It includes photos related to his short stories. A creative collection of short stories about helping one another.

The titles of his short stories are:
The pineapple that was stuck
The farmer
The farmer’s birthday
Mary and the cat lost their hat
Mary and the cat didn’t lose their hat
The cat got lost in the garden
The girl and the boy

I enjoyed these stories from a 3-4 year old boy. Pre-schoolers would enjoy them, and early grade readers would enjoy reading them.

Half price on Renewal Journal.
