One hundred years from now, it will not matter…
What kind of car I drove,
What kind of house I owned,
How much money I had in my bank account,
Nor what my clothes looked like.
But I would have left a better world
If I impacted the life of even one child.


About the Series

The Burrié Children’s Book Series was inspired by author David L. Burrier, whose last name is French in origin. In France it would be pronounced as Burrié, hence the name of David’s children’s book series.

To date, David has written a collection of eleven teaching books for children of various ages ranging from picture books, chapter books and rhyming poetry picture books in the spirit of the Dr. Seuss style. Most of David’s books contain profound adult crossover messages, allowing readers of all ages to enjoy and learn from these delightful stories!

About the Author

David L. Burrier is a follower of Jesus, an entrepreneur, published author and award-winning poet, motivational & inspirational speaker, preacher, singer and songwriter, producer, master storyteller and a Hope Coach.

His mission in life is to be a source of inspiration, so that whoever he encounters will walk away with a renewed sense of mission and purpose in life.

David’s life has been guided by the following quote: 

If you assume that every person you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about, or is hurting in some way, you will be right 99% of the time. So just be kind and seek to lift their spirit and give them hope to live another day.

He is the founder of I’VE BEEN THERE Ministries (IBTM) — a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring a message of hope to a hurting world.

David has written and produced twelve Nighttime Devotionals for pre-school and elementary children.  In addition, David has written and produced two adult devotional programs.  These and many of David’s other programs and creations can be found on his nonprofit website where you can schedule him to speak at conventions, school assemblies, churches and other gatherings.

You can read David’s daily messages of hope on the IBTM Facebook page or add David as a friend on his personal Facebook page.
