Young KidSpirit Contributors Get to the Heart of Love in Winter Issue
Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the all-youth Editorial Board. This season, the editors ask, "What is the relationship between loving yourself and loving others?" In her response, a young editor offers an authentic and nuanced exploration.
Other pieces released today include an article on the age-old link between love and music, a contributor's personal essay on the meaning of love in her homeland of Haiti, another author's narrative about how friendships have shaped him, a piece about the transformative effects of helping others, and a surprising review of the classic movie Groundhog Day.
Throughout the season, KidSpirit will continue to publish writing, poetry, artwork, and video by youth on this rich theme. In Features, writers will examine the importance of self-love and how family bonds impact our personal development. Awesome Moments pieces will delve into transformative experiences, while the Interfaith Connections department will feature perspectives of teens from different faith and wisdom traditions. The Helping Hands section will explore the life-changing significance of service, and, in Media, young authors will review more books and movies related to the issue's theme.
Each issue of KidSpirit features additional wisdom from one adult with expertise in the theme in a column called PerSpectives. This issue's author will be announced later this season.
KidSpirit is a unique forum for young people of all backgrounds and traditions to explore life's big questions in an open spirit. For interviews and further information, please contact Rebecca Bowman at the information below.
