Tracts? Or the Good Life?

When Marash Girl was five years old, she returned home from church (the United Armenian Brethren Evangelical Church where her grandfather's brother, Great Uncle Vartan, was preacher) with a handful of Christian "tracts".

"What are you going to do with those tracts?" her father Peter queried.

"I'm going to take them to all of our neighbors to tell them about Jesus!" answered little Marash Girl.

Marash Girl's father stood up and taught one of the most important lessons he had ever taught.  "When folks ask you what it is about you that causes you to live the good life, THEN you can tell them."

Sorry to have to admit this, but Marash Girl has yet to be asked.
