"My name is Kyle, and I'll be your waiter tonight. Iheard one hamburger. Is everyone else ready to order too?" Kyle jotted down each order and soon brought them a tray filled with plates of steaming food. "Why are those people called waiters?" Ashley asked as Kyle walked back to the kitchen. "Because you...

I get tired of trying to answer him." "I see," said Mom. "I guess he's asking questions like you used to." "Me? What questions?" asked Alyssa...

Bible Reading: Proverbs 15:3; Ezekiel 36:26-27 "Come on, we can sneak in. No one will see us," Paige's friend Noelle whispered, motioning for her to join her at the fence. Paige bit her lip. She wanted to go swimming too, but she knew it was wrong to use their neighbors' pool without them knowing. "Don't be so scared." Noelle climbed up and over the fence. "Come on. It's easy!" she whispered through the slats. Paige stood on the other side, not sure what to do. What will Noelle think of...

As they came around a hedge of tall bushes, Jacob was surprised to see his grandfather reading in a lawn chair a few feet away. "See you tomorrow," Jacob said. Liam waved as he cut through the yard to his house. I hope Grandpa didn't hear...

Garrett’s Guilt

10/13/2021
Bible Reading: Hebrews 4:14-16 Garrett idly bounced a ball against the wall of the living room one Friday afternoon. Suddenly CRASH! His father's glass-bottled ship lay shattered on the floor. Oh no! Garrett thought. That ship belonged to Dad's grandfather! And Mom and Dad said I'd be grounded for a week if I didn't stop throwing the ball in the house. But his parents weren't home from work yet, so he quickly swept up the pieces and threw them out. That night, Garrett glanced at his Bible...

Bible Reading: Romans 8:12-16 "Mom, what's going to happen if one of us gets sick?" Jemma asked. "What if you or Dad loses your job? Will we have to move?

"It just seems like everything's changed so much in the last couple years, and I never know what to expect next." Mom nodded sympathetically. "Do you remember a...

Her family had come to the airport to see her off. As Evie and her parents headed back home, she was very quiet. "What's wrong, honey?" Dad asked. "Do you miss Savannah already?"

Not My Way

10/9/2021
Bible Reading: Ephesians 2:4-10 Weston sighed as he dropped his backpack on the floor of his friend Grady's house. Grady had gone to Bible club with him the day before, and the boys had been discussing the lesson the whole way home from school. Grady couldn't seem to believe that salvation was a gift and not something he had to work for. "When we do something wrong, we need to make it right," Grady argued as he kicked off his shoes. "We shouldn't just expect God to do it all for us and not...

Suddenly he brightened. "Hey, maybe you can help me. Don't you learn that kind of stuff in Bible college?" Elijah looked hopefully at his sister. "Mr. Benson...

The screen door opened, and Cole's mom brought out a glass of lemonade. "I thought you might be thirsty," she said. Cole took the glass and drank the lemonade without even noticing how good it...
