“The Change Rose: How Faith-Based Communities Can Change Outcomes for Public Education”: a thoughtful and personal account of working with public education boards. “The Change Rose: How Faith-Based Communities Can Change Outcomes for Public Education” is the creation of published author Kim Rice Smith, the author of a successful Facebook blog, a popular devotional “The Heart of a Warrior: Faith for the Journey”, and two children’s books.

Smith shares, “The Change Rose is an emotional challenge for Christians from award-winning columnist Kim Rice Smith. If you read her popular daily blog, The Heart of Warrior, you know faith and commitment to public education drive her heart. This book is quite different than her first two The Heart of a Warrior: Faith for the Journey and The Heart of a Warrior: Faith for His Boots on the Ground.

“This powerful work of the heart will take you on a difficult but necessary walk through twenty years of service as a public school’s board member. There are lessons learned, soul-searching questions that remain, and a call to the faith-based community to combine service with advocacy in order to strengthen the future of public education.

“Because Mrs. Smith served the business and faith-based communities throughout those same two decades, each section comes with discussion questions to help readers explore and challenge their own hearts and beliefs regarding the meaning of public education. Do we still believe every child deserves a free public education? Do we want more than sound and basic?

“The topics serve to make readers set aside what they think they know in an effort to understand the bigger picture. From start to finish, you will feel every emotion imaginable. One chapter may leave you angry or filled with sorrow. Another chapter may leave you frustrated and wondering what can be done to make things better. Hopefully, the work in its entirety will leave you hopeful and more clearly focused on our calling as humans who care about each other regarding public education.

“As with all her writings, each topic begins and ends with an unexpected journey of faith. Where your heart begins on page one of ‘The Change Rose’ is hopefully not where it ends as you finish the last chapter. Let your expected outcome be changed by adjusting the soil. Grab a group from your circle of influence and begin to dig deep into how our hearts can move forward together for #EveryChildEveryDay.
