I was having a conversation the other day about how smart some kids are and how i would love my unborn children to be extremely smart. Today I read about this 11 year old boy ordained minister followed by comments and criticisms that he is too young to be a minister and to be preaching on the pulpit. It made me wonder… what is wrong with becoming a minister at the age of 11? Kids today are exposed to sex, pornographic materials, violence, and all sorts of things at a very tender age sometimes younger than 11. Kids today indulge in sinful activities so why the heck cant a kid do God’s will, why cant a kid preach the gospel? Aside from kids being involved in sins there are also super smart kids out there changing the world in special ways. The late Michael Jackson started at a very tender age, Stevie Wonder and a host of others. Today we have the Smith kids already doing it big in the entertainment scene. So I don’t see any reason why a young child can’t chase after God and do his will. So i want to introduce you to some of these super amazingly smart kids, taking it to the next level.
11-year-old Ezekiel Stoddard recently made headlines after he was ordained a minister at the Fullness of Time Church in Maryland.
Ezekiel Stoddard, an 11-year-old ordained minister who has apparently been writing his own sermons since he was seven. ”It doesn’t matter the age that you can be licensed. It just matters … how much word do you have and how much God has called you,” the enthusiastic child of God told the Washington Post. Still, he admits sometimes adults don’t take him seriously and “look at me like I’m a joke and I need to sit down.”

When 9-Year Old Kieron Williamson’s paintings were put up for sale in Norfolk, England, they were sold out in just 10 minutes. While artists more than twice his age struggle to find buyers for even a single piece of art, Kieron’s story is one that could spark envy in the most established of painters. His first sale was in the summer of 2009, when he sold 19 pictures for £14,000 ($22,000). The latest sale of his paintings have earned him £ 100,000 ($157,000).

Kieron Williamson has developed his own unique style of painting. The use of colors, the definition, and perspective in his art work evoke a sense of the ethereal. The 9-year old says that his hero is Norfolk landscape artist Edward Seago, who died in 1974. The late Queen Mother was an avid fan, and Royal patronage is something Kieron hopes to achieve too. He has sent his paintings to both the Queen and also to Prince Charles. While Kieron is being hailed as a brilliant artist and child prodigy around the world, his parents insist that he is still an ordinary boy who enjoys playing football and getting dirty in the mud. The world begs to differ, however, and he is currently being filmed by French, Danish and TV crews.

After passing the Microsoft Certified Professional test, when she was just eight years old, young M. Lavinashree has now become the world’s youngest Red Hat Certified Engineer. She is the world’s younger computer wiz.
M. Lavinashree was born in rural Tamilnadu, India, but her parents noticed her incredible mind, when she was just a baby. At just 1 and a half, her mother taught her the English alphabet by playing with colored letters. She would dictate the alphabet letters and Lavinashree pointed at them accurately. Then she began learning national symbols, songs, Indian personalities, shapes, fruits, and many other things. When her older sister started studying Thirukural (a Tamil poem written by a sage, over 2,000 years ago), Lavinashree begged her mother to teach her the kurals, and at the tender age of three, she won her place in the Limca Book of Records (Indian equivalent to the Guinness Book of Records) for her photographic memory. She managed to recite 1,330 couplets of Thirukural.
