"Whoa!" exclaimed his younger sister Adele as she came into the kitchen. "What language is that? Swahili?" "Oo-ran-os," Bryson repeated, pronouncing it slowly. "It's Greek for heaven." "Mom's teaching you Greek this semester?" asked Adele. "She can't speak Greek!" Bryson held up the book. "No, but she...

Mom came over with a cup of hot chocolate. "Here, Noah," she said. "I thought you might like this to warm you up a bit. It must have been chilly on your walk home from school."

"No, but I I have a problem, and if I don't go to school, I won't have to worry about it."Mom waited, so Prisha went on to explain. "Rowan wants me to let her see my answers on our math test tomorrow. Of course, I won't do it, but I don't want her to be mad at me." Mom raised her brows. "So if you stay home...

A Clean Slate

12/4/2021
Bible Reading: Psalm 32:1-5 "Look what I got at Avani's birthday party, Axel!" Olivia took a magic slate out of a mesh bag and began scribbling on it as they drove home. "Now watch," she said as she lifted the top plastic sheet. "Look! The writing is all gone." As Olivia talked, her older brother simply stared out the window. "Is something wrong, Axel?" asked Mom. "No." Axel lapsed into silence again. Now you've told another lie, his conscience said. That makes two. Axel sighed deeply....

God’s Gift

"I want a phone and a phone case, string lights for my room, a jewelry box, and some owl earrings." Mia held up her list written on pink paper with a silver gel...

"There must be a fire over there!" He pointed ahead where smoke billowed up into the sky. "Wow! First we hear about escaped convicts, and...

Timeless Traditions

Bible Reading: John 14:6-18 Noel reached up high on her tiptoes and placed a sparkling silver bell on an empty tree branch. "Look, Gi-Gi! Just a few more branches and we're finished!"

Love Like Jesus

I'm not enough. Mom peeked inside her room. "Jessie, I'm going to the store and could use your help--oh, honey!" Mom rushed over. "Why are you crying?" "Since the accident, I can't do what other kids can. I know, Jesus loves and accepts me--even if I have nothing to offer." Jessie wiped her tears. "But...

An Imitator

It's so annoying!" "Elijah, please don't do things that annoy your sister," Mom said. "Why don't you go...

A Very Special Servant

11/27/2021
Bible Reading: Matthew 25:34-40 During quiet reading time at school, Jordan couldn't stop thinking about the verses her dad had read for devotions that morning. Dad's a servant of Jesus because he's a pastor, she thought. Uncle Rob and Aunt Claire are God's servants too because they're missionaries. But I'm only eight. How can somebody my age be His servant? Jordan's thoughts were interrupted by her teacher's voice. "Will someone please stay in during morning recess and help me with the...

Home for Supper

11/23/2021
Bible Reading: John 14:1-6 Oliver wandered into his room. He didn't feel like playing. As he sat down on his bed, a little red truck caught his eye, and he picked it up. It had been Joey's favorite.

Pictures of his little brother flashed through his mind--Joey playing happily; the day his parents took Joey to see a doctor; the time Mom put her arms around Oliver and explained that Joey was very sick; Joey growing thinner and more pale. Then came the day Joey...

Bible Reading: Matthew 5:23-24; Colossians 3:13 Zach watched helplessly as his ball bounced off his mom's favorite vase, shattering it into many pieces. He stared in shock at the mess on the floor. His mom had told him never to throw a ball in the house. Now, bits of broken glass covered the entire area. How would he ever get up all the broken pieces? Mom would be home from work any minute. What should he do? Maybe he could pick the glass up before she came home. Maybe she wouldn't notice...

I can't wait to have science class and be smart," Libby said. "Have you ever heard the phrase, 'You are the salt of the earth?'" asked Dad. Libby scooped up some vegetables. "That's...
