I-ville is a kingdom where pride and selfishness dwell, and where people live by the motto “Me first!” You-ville is a kingdom where humility and kindness dwell, and where people put the good of others before their own.
This is the story of how a young boy named Stubborn strives to become the first person of I-ville to make the difficult journey to the beautiful, joy-filled kingdom of You-ville and to become a citizen there. As we join Stubborn in his adventures, we learn profound lessons about how to struggle against bad thoughts and feelings. Drawn from the teachings of St. Paisios of Mount Athos, Greece (1924–1994), these lessons are of great spiritual benefit to young and old alike.
The journey of young Stubborn is the path that all of us must take—and which all of us can accomplish—if only we shrink our “I” and put “You” first!
