The Silent Singer

7/31/2021
Bible Reading: Ephesians 4:2-3, 31-32 Feeling her shoes pinch her feet, Shavonda looked out at the auditorium. She'd never felt more relieved to finish singing a song. She'd also never felt angrier. It was Children's Day at church, which meant that all the children had been specially involved in the service. Shavonda's friend Brynlee had invited her to sing a duet for the occasion. "I'm not sure," Shavonda had told her. "Please!" Brynlee begged. "We can do it together!" Brynlee's...

"Oh, it's getting late. I better go." After Kayla left, Ellie went to the kitchen. "Are you making brownies?" she asked her mom. "Yes, I am," Mom...

Bible Reading: John 1:35-42 Zebb slipped into a seat and waited eagerly for vacation Bible school to begin. He'd become a Christian a few months earlier after his friend Travis had invited him to church, and he'd been looking forward to this special week-long program. He liked the songs and the games, and he looked forward to hearing the story the teacher would tell. Song time was as good as usual, and then Mrs. Jackson got up to give the lesson. "Today we're going to talk about Jesus'...

"But you agreed to go with the others so you could serve God together," said Mom. "You're going to the nursing home to spread joy in His name." Tavley frowned as she sat up....

"I bit into a hard, burnt kernel!" "Sorry about that, Charlotte,"said Miss Jones. "But let's have a short lesson...

Using a wet finger, Ava attached the first snake to the edge of the clay circle. The next roll was placed on top of the first, then the last two were added, one on top of the...

Glancing behind her and checking that her mom was busy paying the clerk, she grabbed the pack of bubblegum and quickly stuffed it into her boot. After helping put the groceries away at home, Bethany...

"But how can I? You never fix it for dinner!" Mom chuckled. "When you were a baby, you literally tried to eat the Bible one time. I wasn't paying...

Cleanup Needed
