Eddie poked his head into Dylan's room. "Dylan? Can I wear your raincoat?" Dylan didn't answer. He was still asleep. What if Eddie took Dylan's raincoat as his own? Dylan needed a new one anyway. It wasn't stealing if Eddie asked first, right? "Can I have your raincoat?" Eddie asked. He took...

5/23/2022
Bible Reading: Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1-4 "But, Dad, why can't I?" asked Ella when her dad insisted she turn off a TV show she wanted to watch. Her brother Jonah looked up. "Yeah.

All the rules we have just make my life completely unbearable!" She had a tendency to be a bit dramatic. As the kids and their dad ran some errands the next day,...

God’s Image

Bible Reading: Genesis 1:26-27; Exodus 20:4 "Grandma, what does 'graven image' mean?" Sapphire asked as she paged through her grandmother's Bible.

"A graven image is a statue or other physical likeness that people make out of something like gold, silver, or stone to worship," said Grandma.

Bible Reading: Psalm 32:1-5 A cat's loud meow came from the living room--again and again. "Ava," called Mom, "what are you doing to Luna?" Not waiting for an answer, she left her work in the office and went to investigate. "Why did Luna yowl like that?" she asked as she walked into the room. "I was just petting her," said Ava. "When Luna turned around to face the other way, I didn't change the direction I was stroking her, so I was rubbing her fur opposite from the way it naturally lays."...

Ivy hugged Ruffles, her teddy bear, close. "I'm so glad I got you back," she whispered. Ruffles was very old and worn, and Ivy's mother had...

"You and Dad won't let us watch some movies that Stella's parents think are okay. And Naomi says her family avoids doing certain things on Sunday that we do almost every Sunday. Why can't Christians agree on what's right and what's wrong?" "There isn't a simple answer to that, but…" Mom hesitated. "We're having Uncle Paul and Aunt Sue over for dinner tonight,...
