Although earthly leaders dubbed him as “not fit to serve a king,” Obed the donkey was chosen by God Almighty to serve the King of Kings! Obedience and humility are trademark characteristics used by God for all those He calls to service. Like the little donkey Obed, the book demonstrates that we can all find our purpose when we understand who and whose we are; we distinguish that leadership is a responsibility, not a right; and we recognize that greatness comes through service, not entitlement.

About the Author
Darlene and her three sisters were raised by her grandmother, Marrie Bell Clements, who was an outspoken and passionate Christian. She instilled Christian morals and values into Darlene Benjamin Revere's life at an early age, and taught her to seek, trust, and obey God.
Though not formally trained in a university or college, Darlene received the utmost training in the school of hard knocks, whose CEO is the Holy Spirit. While still in high school, Darlene discovered she had a talent for designing and sewing. She has developed that talent over the years, and now has a successful reupholstery business.
In 2005, Darlene and her husband Norris fostered two toddlers whose parents were unable to care for them. Within five years, they had adopted these children, and Dillon and Cassey are now preteens. This whole journey has been a challenge that they all have met with tenacity, persistence, and endurance. The Christian principles that her grandmother sowed into Darlene's life she now sows into theirs.
The story of Obed is one of rejection, endurance and waiting on God. Darlene is well seasoned in these, and her passion for God and compassion for the rejected qualifies her to share this story with you. I should know, I'm one of her sisters.
