12/1/2021
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!" Noel's great-grandmother smiled at her excitement. "Noel, I enjoy this tradition of decorating with you every year. It's amazing how high you can reach now!" Gi-Gi chuckled. "I remember when you could hardly hang that bell on the lowest branch." Grandpapa waltzed in with the angel tree topper. "Are we ready...

Love Like Jesus

11/30/2021
Bible Reading: Romans 15:1-7 The family car swung from the curb after dropping off Mrs. Shrively. As the old woman climbed the porch steps, little Sadie waved to her. "Whew!" said Hannah.

Bible Reading: John 6:1-14; 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 Jessie rolled her wheelchair to the bedroom mirror and stared at her reflection. I can't do anything, she thought as tears filled her eyes. 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...

After a moment, Kaden ventured a question of his own. "Are you glad to be back from the mission field, Uncle Kurt?" Uncle Kurt looked right at Kaden and raised his eyebrows a few times as he spoke. "It's good to be back, but we miss the people we've...

After going two blocks, it let off three people and picked up four. After going another block, it let off four passengers. It made one more stop and picked up two people." Nari grinned. "Now tell me how...

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...

11/22/2021
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...

Soon they were enjoying the sun and sand...

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...

Sibling Appreciation

"See if I ever bake cookies for you again!" "Oops! I forgot about them." Caleb grinned and wrote it down. "What about when you were...

I told them to put it on the patio." He shook his head. "Looks like you get to move the wood, Jeremiah." "Why me?" demanded Jeremiah with a scowl. "Why do I get all the dirty jobs around here?" "We all have jobs to do," said Dad. "Mom has to work late, and I have to cook dinner. That leaves you and Ainsley--and I...

Bible Reading: Luke 5:27-32 "Mom, did you really tell Logan he could bring Elliott Blackburn to church with us tomorrow?" asked Laya. "Yes, I did," Mom replied. "Why?" "Oh, Mom!" Laya wailed. "Elliott is horrible! He's everything you tell us not to be, and then you turn around and say he can come to church with us. If you knew him, you wouldn't want Logan to be friends with him." "I don't want Logan to be influenced by Elliott's behavior or take part in it," said Mom. "But it sounds like...

I lost my temper and said something just as mean. Then some of the kids teased Melissa about her new glasses, so I did too. She started to cry, and Mr....

Out of the Shell

Bible Reading: Matthew 28:18-20 "You're still living in the same small shell, Hermie," Laila told her little crab. She looked at the empty larger shell she'd put at the bottom of the bowl.

Then you lied about it--and convinced your brother to lie too!"...
