They're not so easy to keep straight either." Armed with a newspaper, scissors, paper, and a glue stick,...

Not Good Enough

1/24/2022
Bible Reading: Ephesians 2:4-9 "Okay, I'll try again," said Aurora. Turning, she jumped into the pool with a huge splash and swam for a short distance. Then she grabbed the side of the pool and gasped for air. She looked at her dad in dismay as she climbed out. "I give up, Dad." "Don't give up. You're doing better, sweetie," Dad assured her as he offered her a towel. "Come on. Let's take a break." Aurora and her father went to the concession stand, and Dad bought hot dogs, chips, and cold...

Through the Fog

1/23/2022
Bible Reading: Psalm 18:28-33 "Do we have to leave already?" moaned Madison as she and her family prepared to go home.

Now the time had come to say goodbye--a long goodbye because in less than a week, Madison's family was leaving for Peru to serve as missionaries. Grandma put an arm around Madison. "We'll miss you so much, but we can stay in touch easily and do video calls...

Helping Hands

Bible Reading: Matthew 25:34-40; Philippians 2:4 Charles stared out the window. He couldn't stop thinking about the Bible verse Pastor Todd read in church about helping those in need. He turned to his dad. "Dad? I want to help." Dad looked up from his computer. "You lost me, bud." "Pastor Todd talked about food shortages in Africa and read a verse about helping people in need," Charles said. "Kids are going to bed hungry--kids like me and Lucy. I want to help." "Me too!" Lucy piped...

Still Singing

Bible Reading: Psalm 98:1-9 "Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus; just to take Him at His Word. Just to " The words of the song floated up the stairs, invading Harrison's sleep. He yawned and rolled over with a groan. Grandma was singing, just like any other morning. As her voice rang out, tears escaped Harrison's eyes and trickled onto his pillow. How can Grandma sing? he wondered. Isn't she sad that Grandpa died? As Harrison ate breakfast a little later, he asked her about it. "Grandma, how...

Still a Baby?

1/20/2022
Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:1-7; Hebrews 5:13-14 "Hey, Mom," said Jose as he did his homeschool work at the kitchen table. "I just read the verses you assigned for my Bible lesson today, and well, I don't get it! The apostle Paul says he has to talk to the people of Corinth like they're babies and feed them milk. That doesn't actually mean milk like we drink, does it?" "No, but many of those people were acting like baby Christians," Mom said. "It's something like wait, I know!" She...

The Lost Duckling

1/19/2022
Bible Reading: Luke 15:1-7 "Today I want to tell you a story about some ducks that live by my house," Mr. Peters told his Sunday school class as the kids gathered for their lesson time. Clara eagerly sat down to listen. "Yesterday I was down at my pond and saw a mama duck and her four little ducklings," Mr. Peters said. "They were all just swimming around enjoying themselves when suddenly the mama duck swam frantically to the edge of the pond. She led her four little ducklings back to their...

This is Snowflake," he said as the kitten purred and snuggled comfortably in his arms. "Thanks for letting me keep her even though we already have two cats. Snowflake is the only one that will let me pick her up and carry her anywhere I go." He put the cat down on the sofa, and Snowflake curled up beside him. "See? She'll...

I Wish I Could…

1/17/2022
Bible Reading: Genesis 37:6, 11-28 Amelia stared at the floor as her classmate Himari walked to the piano. When Himari began to play a piano solo, Amelia tried to distract herself by flipping through her Bible. She didn't want to hear Himari's solo. After church everyone will talk about how well Himari plays the piano, she thought. She didn't want to hear that either. Himari's no older than me. Why can she play so well? I wish I could play in church like she does. That week, the annual...

Forgiven Now

1/16/2022
Bible Reading: Psalm 86:3-6; 103:1-4 Upset, Adrian buried his face deep into his pillow. He didn't hear anyone come into his room, but a gentle touch caused him to look up and see his mother. "What's the matter, honey?" she asked as she sat down beside him. "Is there some problem I can help with?" Adrian hesitated. He didn't really want to tell his mom what was bothering him. "I I lied to Eli, and now he won't talk to me," he finally blurted out. "He knows I lied." "Why did you do that?"...

A New Friend

1/15/2022
Bible Reading: John 15:13; Philippians 2:4 Carissa had lots of friends. She was probably the most popular girl in the third grade. Ava, on the other hand, didn't seem to have any friends at all. Ava was shy and very quiet, and she never seemed to be noticed by anyone. She sat by herself on the bus, she sat by herself at lunch, and she played by herself at recess. Carissa noticed how alone Ava was and felt badly for her. Surely Ava wasn't happy always being by herself. Carissa decided that...

Bible Reading: John 17:12-16 "Check this out!" exclaimed Jack. He sat holding his phone at the back of the bus, surrounded by a bunch of boys. Their eyes widened as they looked at the screen. "Ryan, come take a look!" shouted Jack. Ryan was sitting a few rows up. "No thanks," Ryan replied. "I'm at a really good part in my book." He knew what kind of pictures they were looking at.

Wren’s Worth

1/13/2022
Bible Reading: Romans 8:35-39; 1 Peter 4:16-19 Wren swiped at the tears that threatened to stream down her face. She would not give them the satisfaction of seeing her cry. The government was watching; their eyes seemed to be everywhere. Wren took a deep breath and focused on the verse she had memorized. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good--Proverbs 15:3. The government had a lot of power, but Wren knew God was greater. Three days--that was how...

Bible Reading: Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 24:35; Hebrews 13:8 "I'm flying!" exclaimed Kyle as he gripped the handle of the rising seesaw. "My turn," announced his sister, Kendra. She pushed her feet against the packed earth, sending herself upward while Kyle returned to ground level. "You look happier than you did this morning," Kendra said. Kyle's smile faded a little. "I was disappointed when Tom didn't want to play today." He dug his heels into the dirt and rested there. "He promised me...

Mom added some of Ben's socks to the suitcase and then sat down beside him. "It wasn't so long ago that you loved to camp and fish and ride bikes with your dad. He still wants to do those...

Living Hope

Bible Reading: Psalm 42; Romans 5:1-11; 15:1-13 Masiko raced to the garden on the other side of the road. The sun shone warm and comforting on her head as she ran. She waved at a majestic-looking kob, a type of antelope plentiful in Uganda, that was watching her lazily from behind some reeds. Masiko gathered some bananas and jackfruit for her mother, then ran back across the road. She heard the motorcycle too late. Pain seared down Masiko's leg as she hit the hard ground. A man scrambled...

Bible Reading: John 3:16-17; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:8-10 "I'm so hungry," said Casen as his dad turned the car into the drive-through lane of a fast-food restaurant. They'd spent the morning cleaning up their elderly neighbor's yard, and now Dad was rewarding Casen with his favorite lunch of burgers and fries. "That will be $18.54 at the second window," the cashier told Dad after he placed the order. Casen saw his dad wince. That seems like a lot, Casen thought. Even though he and his...
