“The Little Vessel” from Christian Faith Publishing author LeighAnne Clifton is a heartwarming story about a strange little vessel in the shop of the Artist who struggles with self-doubt over her unknown purpose, since she is small, plain, and cannot hold water due to the little holes in her design; and for this she is teased mercilessly by the other vessels—until the Artist places her in the kiln to undergo a painful procedure, and discovers soon after her truly unique and beautiful purpose.

“The Little Vessel”: an uplifting modern parable for young readers. “The Little Vessel” is the creation of published author LeighAnne Clifton, an environmental engineer who lives in Aiken, South Carolina, with her husband.

Clifton writes, “ ‘Little vessel,’ the teacup explained with patience, ‘my friends and I have belonged to the Artist for a long, long time. We’ve watched Him create many wonderful things.’ As he said this, the little vessel noticed for the first time that the teacup was not alone. There were other teacups, all similar to her new friend but none of them exactly alike. And behind them sat a rather nondescript little teapot. None were particularly beautiful, some were chipped with worn paint, but all looked very comfortable on the Artist’s shelf. ‘So what is your purpose?’ the little vessel inquired of any of the teacups that might choose to answer. Each one smiled kindly, but the teacup that had addressed her before replied, ‘Little one, every day the Artist selects several of us to serve Him. What an honor it is to be chosen by Him! However, those of us who are not used that day are content to wait patiently, knowing He will use us in His time.’ ”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, LeighAnne Clifton’s new book is an encouraging story that reminds every child of God to wait and trust in God’s timing.

As the little vessel listens to the other vessels’ encouragement and discovers her own unexpectedly beautiful destiny, readers will be inspired to hold fast to their faith even when they start wondering if they are a mistake rather than a precious work of art.
