Some of you may not have ever heard of Mattie Stepanek. Mattie described himself as “a poet, a peacemaker, and a philosopher who played.” He died at age 13 of a rare disorder, dysautonomic mitochondrial myopathy. During his short life, Mattie published seven best-selling books of poetry and peace essays. He was known as a peace advocate and motivational speaker.

As I’ve been reminding you for months, Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks,“I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”
