Kirstie and the Lost Stone

Kirstie and the Lost StoneDuring the autumn clean up of the even farthest north, Kirstie discovers that a stone on her beach is missing.  Worried, she goes to Colin, her neighbour, for help.  He dismisses her fears, telling her that the stone is both small and unimportant, but Kirstie remains concerned and sets out to look for it.  She finds herself at the haunted Bay of Sand at the End of the World, but still cannot find her lost stone.  She realises that she herself is now lost and asks God for help.
Safe in his postbox home, Colin cannot sleep for worrying about Kirstie and sets off in search of her.  He finds her just as she finds her lost stone and together they put it back on her beach.

And God smiled to see them both safe, for nothing is too small or unimportant for God, and his way is to see the lost brought safely home.

The McDorwuffs are a clan of small, stout Scottish people whose home is around the shores of Loch Laxford in Sutherland.  They are rockherds, looking after the rocks and hills of the even farthest north.
The McDorwuffs have a special relationship with God, trekking up to the top of the mountain called Foinaven to talk about their problems and ask God’s advice.  But if they don’t like the advice they’re given then generally ignore it!
These eight often funny stories in the series try to show something of the way in which God’s love works in the world.  Some of the stories are loosely based on the parables of Jesus.They tackle themes such as greed, selfishness, pride, making difficult choices and how we treat others.  The
stories will appeal to all ages and especially to children aged from 5 to 9.

Books are available from myself
The stories have been turned into an 8 x 15 minute television series, available on DVD.   Please contact me
