In this book, Jean Barbour Clark gives us a glimpse of the many challenges she faced when caring for children in churches from the late 1950s until 1995. The churches tended to be in disadvantaged areas and Jean shares with us the many struggles she encountered and also the tremendous personal rewards. This is a refreshing account of one woman’s desire to give children memories to treasure – golden moments that they will be able to look back on with great affection and warmth.

You will shed the odd tear when you read this engaging memoir. But don’t be surprised if you also find yourself laughing out loud as you empathise with the author’s many struggles to keep abreast of the ever-changing children’s culture.

The book is written in such a way that each story can stand on its own, the reader will find it difficult to put it down.


Born in Glasgow, Jean Barbour Clark was the eldest of three children. Her family moved to the suburbs just before World War II when she was four years old. Her grandfather and aunt joined the family for their own safety and also to support her mother when her father joined the armed forces.

Jean became a Christian in her early teens through an organisation that valued ministry to children. Over the years, she was inspired by their ingenuity and creativity to develop her own children’s work.
