Bible Reading: Proverbs 14:31; John 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8 "Dad, Christmas is coming!" said Marisol with a grin. "Christmas? It's pretty early for that. You're not giving me your wish list already, are you?" "I haven't even thought about that yet," Marisol said. "This will be our first winter since we moved here, so I have an idea for making Christmas special this year." "I'm listening," said Dad. "Remember when we went shopping and I asked if I could get those red leather boots I saw...

It Takes Faith

10/27/2021
Bible Reading: Hebrews 11:1-6 Abel and Maggie were enjoying a weekend at their grandparents' cabin. While Grandma went to make hot chocolate, the twins sat with Grandpa in front of the fire and popped popcorn in an old-fashioned, long-handled basket. "In our class at church today, Peter said his dad doesn't believe you need to have faith in Jesus to be saved and go to heaven. Peter told us his dad says there's no point in having faith in anything." "And what did your teacher say?"...

"I like those jeans too," said Charlotte. "Yeah!" Erin looked hopefully at her mother. "Can I get those, Mom?" "I don't know," Mom answered. "Things in this store are pretty...

The Lasting Word

10/25/2021
Bible Reading: 1 Peter 1:22-25 Sophie half-heartedly swung on the porch swing and gazed gloomily at the withering flowers and browning grass. The extra-hot summer had taken effect on the town's usually vibrant and beautiful landscape. Almost all the flower gardens and bright-green lawns now looked wilted and drab. Sophie had been looking forward to enjoying the flowers she and her mother had planted, but there was no hope of that now. They had shriveled up in the dry heat. Lost in thought,...

Stronger than the Strongest Man

10/24/2021
Bible Reading: Psalm 65:5-13 "Wow!" Braxton's eyes went wide as he watched the circus performance. The posters said that the man he was watching was the strongest man in the world. He didn't know if that was true, but the guy sure was strong. "Think you could do that?" His dad grinned over at him as the man started to break bricks with his hand. Braxton shook his head. There was no way he would ever be that strong. It would be fun if he could be though. In church the next morning,...

"I left something over there myself--some research books I took along to study during our visit. I knew I should have put them in the car as soon as I was done with them, but I didn't!" "Mom said Aunt Lola and Uncle Juan are planning to visit us in a couple of weeks," Leo said. "I'll text Uncle...

Bible Reading: Genesis 5:1; Romans 9:20; 1 Timothy 4:4 Samantha was staring at the mirror in her bedroom when her older cousin knocked on her door. "Ready to go?" asked Avery. She had agreed to drive Sam to a birthday party across town. "I don't think I want to go to the party anymore," Sam said. "Mom and I can drop off Juliet's present on the way to church tomorrow." Avery looked surprised. "Why don't you want to go? You love parties." "I look ugly," said Samantha. She looked into the...

A Salty Spring

10/21/2021
Bible Reading: James 3:5-12 "How about a hike up one of the mountain trails before dinner?" Mr. Charles called out to the boys in his church youth group. This camping trip was a yearly event they'd all been looking forward to. "Yes!" exclaimed several of the boys. They eagerly scrambled up and started out. After hiking a while, they came across a spring of water. "My great-grandpa said that when he was a boy, he drank water from a spring in the woods behind their house," said Nathan. "Can...

"The day before the accident," Mom said thoughtfully. Julian nodded. He remembered what had happened the day after they picked...

"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 didn't do nothin'!" "What's the problem, Alyssa?" Mom asked. "He follows me around and asks why over and over and over," Alyssa said. "Or else he asks how or what. 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...

It's easy!" she whispered through the slats. Paige stood on the other side, not sure what to do. What will Noelle think of...

"Reading is fun," said Scarlett. "And it's a good way to learn about all kinds of things too. Don't you like to read?" "Well, there are a few books that are okay," said Damon. "Like action and adventure stories." "How about the Bible?" Mom asked. "Yeah," Scarlett said. "Lots of Bible stories have action...

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...

"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...

Not My Way

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...
