Recently published “Every Child Needs a Lily” by Lillie White-Evans is a pleasant and inspiring testament to the importance of educators



“Every child needs a lily”: a powerful reminder of the responsibility we have for the young people in their care. “Every Child Needs a Lily” is the creation of published author Lillie White-Evans, a retired educator who has also served in educational management / administration and teaching programs such as Elementary Supervisor, Grantwriter Management and 504 / ADA Specialist.

White-Evans shares: “Every Child Needs a Lily shows how a student at a rural school in southern Louisiana, whose name happens to be Lillie, paid for love, kindness and Bible lessons from her former teachers and administrators as she later worked as an educator in a nearby town. She has practiced at home, at school, in the community, and at church. Testimonials from some of its students and people benefiting from its work and services are included. Also included is the testimony of the mentee, who inspired the writing of this book by saying, “Every Child Needs a Lily”.

“This book explores the impact of how cohesive mentoring in an individual setting of students over a period of time that includes acts of kindness, Bible truths, and life experiences can build self-confidence and develop high achievement qualities in students before entering colleges.

“The ultimate goal of this book is to challenge other educators as well as other professionals to commit to helping at least one child become the best they can be. The answer to the growing number of social ills in our society cannot lie in schools alone. Other community organizations and more individuals must increase programs and activities for children and youth in order to eliminate the many social ills that plague America. Statistics prove that it takes at least one person to encourage a child to be successful.

“The stories and testimonies are surrounded by a background of artwork from a child to solidify the child in the title, a young human being who can grow up with the help of a ‘lily’. A “lily” becomes anyone who invests time, money, talents, and Bible truth in a child or individual. While each mentor develops goals and objectives unique to their expertise, tips for getting started are included.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Lillie White-Evans’ new book is an encouraging tribute to the legacy that every educator leaves to their students.

With personal testimonies and thoughtful reflections, White-Evans’ encouraging message will resonate with educators around the world.
