I-ville—a Kingdom where pride and selfishness dwell, and where people live by the motto “Me first!” You-ville—a Kingdom where humility and kindness have their home, and where people put the good of others before their own.

This is a story of a young boy named Stubborn, as he 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, along with him, profound lessons in how to struggle against bad thoughts and feelings. Drawn from the teachings of the beloved Elder Paisios of Mount Athos, Greece (1924-1994), these lessons can be of tremendous spiritual benefit for young and old alike. The journey of young Stubborn is one that all of us must take, and which all of us can accomplish—if only we can shrink our “I” and put “You” first!

From I-ville to You-ville has now entered its fifth printing in Greece, where a theatrical adaptation of it is widely performed by school and theater groups.
