The Fall

8/10/2022
Bible Reading: Romans 14:10-13 "I don't think Anna is a Christian," Hunter said as he and his sister Sabrina rode their bikes up the driveway. "In fact, I'm sure she's not. She lied to me!" Mom looked up from her flower garden. "Whoa!" she said. "I heard that. Don't you think you're making an awfully hasty judgment?" "Well, it's not like this is the first time she lied," said Sabrina. "Yeah," said Hunter. "She's done it lots of times before!" He and Sabrina started back down the driveway...

God’s Rocket

8/9/2022
Bible Reading: Matthew 10:29-31 Judson locked his model rocket's engine into place. Next, he would connect the igniter. He looked across the field, where Mom and two-year-old Kassidy fed the chickens. Good. They were far from the launch pad. Dad was mowing the fence line, so he was in the safe zone too. Kassidy's giggles carried over the lawnmower's engine. Judson smiled. His baby sister got into his stuff, but he didn't mind--too much. When he felt impatient, he remembered the...

She's such a copycat!" Mom smiled when she saw Chloe. The little girl was standing with one hand on her hip just like her big sister, and her eyes...

The Wrong Finger

Bible Reading: John 3:1-7, 16 "Of course I'm a Christian!" Easton told his friend Micah. "I go to church with my mom and dad all the time. Dad's on the church board, and Mom teaches Sunday school." Easton paused, then added, "During the church service last Sunday, they both gave testimonies about how they were saved." "So what?" said Micah. "That doesn't make you a Christian." "Does too!" Easton insisted. A little later, Micah left to go home, and Easton came into the house. "Micah and I...

"I heard you and Dad arguing last night. I thought you were going to divorce him." "Oh, Charlotte," said Mom. "It's true that we argued. We had a disagreement over holiday spending. But that doesn't mean we're getting a divorce." Mom gave Charlotte a hug. "Every couple has differences they need to work out...

Bible Reading: 1 John 3:16-18 "To start our game, I will be Simon," said Miss Elwood, Kennedy's teacher. "And remember, you must always do what Simon says, not what Simon does."

"Simon says, 'Step forward.'" As Miss Elwood spoke, she stepped forward. The kids followed her example. "Simon says, 'Snap your...

Then I won't wake you when I get up early to go fishing." Ben's mom nodded. "Okay, but it's already dark, so take your sleeping bag and get going." As they started out, Josh snapped on his flashlight. "Last night I left this thing in my pocket all the way home. I'm not gonna make the same mistake...

They had been visiting some friends who were camping just a short distance from their own campsite. "At least we don't have far to go," said Josh. "We're almost--" His words cut off as he caught his toe on a tree root and fell. "Ow!" he yelled. Cora reached down to help him up. "Are you hurt?" "Not much," Josh replied. "But I think I skinned my knee....

No Taking Back

The two friends had argued, and now Melanie thought of more things she wished she had said to Eden--and they weren't nice. Well, I'm not going back there. I'll text her and tell her what I think of her, she thought. All the way home, Melanie planned what she'd say. "That'll fix her," Melanie muttered after sending an angry note to her friend. But as she headed for the kitchen, she...

Higher Ways

7/28/2022
Bible Reading: Isaiah 55:8-11 A cold wind whipped through the cemetery and stung Colin's face. He tried to listen as the minister read from the Bible. I wonder if Grandpa is with Jesus in heaven, he thought for the hundredth time in the last few days. On the way home, Colin finally asked the question that lay heavy on his heart. "Did Grandpa go to heaven, Dad?" Dad looked somber. "We believe so. You probably remember that Grandpa didn't show much interest when I talked to him about Jesus."...

How about we make your favorite chocolate cookies and then we'll have a thank-you walk?" Zemirah nodded and dried her eyes, then followed Grandma to the kitchen to help her bake. "Now, while we...

The Cycling Trip

Bible Reading: Ephesians 1:18-21 "Whew! I'm so hot!" Matt groaned as he slowly cycled up a hill. Sweat ran down his face and his legs were aching. A few feet ahead, Dad turned around and grinned. "You're doing great! Just over this hill is a café. We'll stop for ice cream." Before Matt could answer, a motorbike cruised around the corner and zipped past the two cyclists. It was gone in a flash. "Wow! What I wouldn't give to have a motor on my bike right now!" puffed Matt enviously. "Me...

Everyone, this is Hania. Please make her feel welcome today." When Hania came home that evening, her mom was in the kitchen preparing dinner. "How's your new school?" Mom...
