Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. Colossians 3:23-24a NIV

It has been said that if you listen very carefully, while standing completely still, deep within a shady and sheltered mountain forest, you just might hear the distant sound of church bells on Sunday morning. To many, this sound seems like the wind winding its way through the needles on a pine tree. To others, it’s the sound of a small creek as its cold and clear water rushes over age-old granite rocks. But to those who listen closely, it really is church bells ringing all around as the Keepers of the Forest make their way to Sunday services in the warm morning light. Now you may be wondering who the Keepers of the Forest are. You may also be wondering why church bells would sound in the middle of a forest. You might even conclude that these Keepers of the Forest are quite tiny, whoever they are. If you do, you would be right. For the Keepers of the Forest are indeed little people who live deep in the mountains and high in the trees. They live in tiny villages built right into the sides of massive oak, pine, and fir trees. They call themselves Littlekins.

Littlkekins is children's book series about little people who take care of the forest. They live in villages built high up in the trees.

Each tiny village has everything a Littlekin family could ever need. There is a grocery store, a barbershop, a shoe store, and a dressmaker shop. There is a doctor's office, a dentist, a potter's shop, and a hardware store. In the middle of each small village is the town hall and next to it the schoolhouse. And at the top of the village, just past the tiny Littlekin clapboard cottages and to the right of the Littlekin fire lookout tower, is the Littlekin church. Every Sunday morning, without fail, the bell in the tower rings at 9 a.m. sharp. All Littlekin families listen intently for the bell, for they know that when it sounds, church is about to begin.

Littlekins, whether big or small (and you can imagine how small a Littlekin can be), gladly make their way to church because they know that they have much to be thankful for. They are thankful for the big things: the forest and trees,Littlekins are truly blessed, their job is to take care of the trees and the animals of the forest. the sun and leaves, the rain and wind, their families and all their kin. They are also thankful for the little things: the acorn caps that hold their breakfast cereal and dinner soup, the maple leaves that make beautiful baskets, and the long meadow grass that weaves into strong rope.

Littlekins are indeed truly blessed, for they are gifted by God to oversee the treasured forest and all that dwells within. It is their responsibility to look after the animals and protect the plants. It is their charge to care for the sick and help the lost. It is their life’s work to make sure that the forest survives, prospers, and thrives.

Now, one must be very clear here. Littlekins are stewards of the forest. However, that doesn’t mean that they worship it. Littlekins worship God alone. They know that God has entrusted the care of the forest into their hands and that He wants them to use the resources of the forest. All the Littlekin villages are made from wood and grass that grows in the forest. The food they eat comes from plants and animals that live in the forest. The water they drink comes from the streams that run through the forest.

Littlekins are small in size but big in stature. They are about the size of your common pine cone.

It is a big job, being the Keepers of the Forest. This may seem pretty difficult to accomplish for people who stand only as tall as a medium-sized pinecone. But they do it, and they do it with purpose and determination. They fully realize the importance of the jobs they perform and they take each assignment very seriously. You see, Littlekins are humble people who have a strong faith in God and who understand what it means to serve.

Littlekins are dedicated to serving, serving their own families, other Littlekins and the forest they were created to protect. But most of all, Littlekins serve God, for they know very well that the Lord made all life possible and without Him, there would be nothing. To the Littlekins, serving is a part of their daily life. To be a Keeper of the Forest, one must learn to faithfully serve.
It has been said that if you listen very carefully, while standing completely still deep within a shady and sheltered mountain forest, you just might hear the distant sound of church bells on Sunday morning. If you take the time to breathe in the gentle wind, you just might catch the sweet smell of cottage fireplace smoke as it gently makes its way to the clouds above. If you listen very closely, you just may receive an invitation to visit a Littlekin village tucked away, high in an old oak, pine, or fir tree. But you must be willing to listen.
