Growth Challenges (Part 2)

"Emma!" Mom walked into the living room carrying Emma's baby brother. "I need you to take care of Andy while I run to the store." "Can't Landon do it?" Emma asked. "I want to finish this book I'm reading." Mom frowned. "You used to love taking care of Andy," she said. "But lately I've noticed that whenever you have the chance to play with him or take him on a walk, you find something else to do instead. You haven't been paying much attention to him at all. What's going on?" Emma took a deep...

"Hi, Mom," Emma said as she and Landon came into the kitchen after school. "Is Andy awake? Can I take him for a walk?" "Again? You sure give that baby a lot of attention!" Landon smirked. "Don't you want to help me mow the lawn first? After all, I'm your brother too!" Emma grinned. "Yeah, but you're not as cute and cuddly as Andy." When Emma and Landon came home from school the next day, Mom and Dad were sitting in the kitchen with Andy. "Hi!" Emma said. "How did Andy's doctor appointment...

But I’m Shy!

"So, how was your first day?" Mom asked. Merrie stared out the window at the passing scenery. "Pretty good. A girl named Danielle offered to show me around. If it weren't for her, I would've been pretty helpless. That school is huge!" Mom adjusted the rearview mirror to see her better. "I'm glad you found a friend so quickly. She sounds nice!" Merrie frowned. "Actually, she seemed pretty shy. Every time I asked her anything, she turned bright pink and just mumbled the answer." "Really?"...

Bearing Good News

Josie and Peter were silent on the ride home from Grandma's house. "All right," said Mom, "I know why Grandma was upset, but I'd like to hear from you two what happened." Peter hung his head. "Josie and I were making fun of one of our teachers at church. We were laughing about the clothes Mrs. Pritchard wears and the way she talks." Josie blushed. "Grandma said we had no business making fun of the Lord's servant and that our conversation reminded her of a story from the Bible about bears...

Ringo’s Enemy

Cole's eyes flashed angrily as he came into the house. "Mr. Wilson kicked at Ringo! He tried to hurt him!" Mom frowned. "Oh dear. Maybe we can talk with him about it tomorrow." "Yeah," said Cole, "and show him how wrong he is!" Mom shook her head. "We're going to talk to him with kindness and respect. Jesus said we should love our enemies and pray for those who are mean to us." Cole sighed. "I know," he said, "but it's hard to do." "Why don't we do it together?" Mom suggested. Cole nodded,...

Hidden Sweetness

Piper cringed as she took a sip from her glass. "Yuck! This isn't very good lemonade," she said. "It's really sour." "That's odd," said Mom. "It's the same brand we've always used. Maybe you didn't put enough sugar in it." "Yes, I did. I'm sure I did!" Piper looked at her glass and frowned. "This lemonade reminds me of Mae. She's sour too." "You mean Mae Jones from church?" Mom asked. "She always seemed like a sweet girl to me." "She used to be, but she's not sweet anymore," Piper replied....

Power over Death

Editor's note: This story's subject matter may not be appropriate for young children. Tom looked sad as she hung up the phone. "Kinley, Daniel," she began. "I'm so sorry, but Jalen died this morning." Daniel tried to comfort his younger sister as she began to cry. Jalen was their friend and next door neighbor, and he had been sick for a long time. "At least he became a Christian at camp last summer," Daniel said. "That means he's with Jesus now." Several weeks later, Kinley and Daniel walked...

Something Beautiful

The waves crashed as Graham sat on the beach. Even though he was vacationing with his friend Omar and his family, his thoughts were dark. Back home, things were anything but a fun day at the beach. No one wants me, Graham thought to himself. Mom and Dad are too busy fighting to notice me. Except when I get bad grades. That's the only time my teacher notices me too. Graham held back tears as his thoughts ran on. I can't do anything right. I wish I'd never been born! Just then Omar's...

Come and See

Michael stood on a stepstool so he could see over the fender to where his dad was working underneath the hood. "What are you doing?" he asked. "I'm replacing the spark plugs," said Dad. "Then it should run a lot better." "Cool!" said Michael. "Are you going to do anything else?" "After this I'll replace the brake pads," Dad said. "I want to watch when you do," Michael said. Then he thought of his friend down the street who loved cars. "Can Jason can come and see too?" "There should be room...

The Grumbling Game

"Declan," said Mom, "will you come and dry these dishes, please?" "Can't Dara do it?" Declan asked. "I'm sick of drying dishes!" Dara rolled her eyes. "You're always sick of one thing or another." Dad looked up from his computer. "We seem to get the 'sick of something' illness too often around here," he said. "We're about as bad as the Israelites, who complained constantly in spite of all the good things God did for them." Mom nodded. "I have an idea for a game we can play to help us learn...

What’s in a Name?

Alexis rushed into the house. "Mom! Bree's mom and new baby sister are home now!" she exclaimed. "She's so cute, and her name is Arabella. I love that name! How do people decide what to name their babies?" "Well," said Mom, "some are named after a family member or a person the parents admire. And sometimes parents choose a name for its meaning." Alexis was surprised. "Names have meanings?" "Some do," said Mom. "For instance, Alexis means 'helper' or 'defender.' I can show you a website that...

A Tight Grip

"Mom!" Jessica cried. "Cassandra hit me!" "Because you pushed me!" cried her little sister. Mom sighed. "Girls, just once I would like to drive to school without you two fighting." Jessica felt her face flush with anger at her sister. She tried to ignore her by picking a book out of her bag to read, but before she even finished a sentence, she felt Cassandra's elbow in her side. She pushed back, and before long the girls were hitting each other again. "Honestly, you two!" Mom brought the car...

The Benchwarmer

"I'm quitting basketball," Theo announced flatly as his dad entered the room. "Quitting?" asked Dad. "But you could hardly wait to join the team!" Theo frowned. "I'm just a benchwarmer. Coach Adams hardly ever lets me play." "Well, no, he hasn't yet, but he told me you have great potential." "If I'm so great, why doesn't he let me play more?" asked Theo. "The older players have more experience," Dad replied, "and Coach Adams is naturally going to use his best players when it's necessary for...

"I don't think I did well on that history test today--I should have studied more," Alicia said as she followed Mom into a store at the mall. "And then Christiana got upset when I said her skirt looked like one you used to wear in high school. I meant it as a compliment, but she didn't take it that way. I tried to explain and say I was sorry, but I still feel bad about it." Alicia sighed. "What a horrible day!" "Well, don't dwell on it, honey," said Mom. "Now you'll know better next time."...

"Hi, Grandpa," Eric said as he entered his grandfather's apartment, which was a few doors down from where he and his mom and sister lived. "I brought you some of Mom's cinnamon rolls. She made them this morning." "Great!" Grandpa said. "Let's have one." As they sat down at the kitchen table, there was a knock at the door. "More company?" Grandpa asked. "Elia!" Eric said when Grandpa opened the door. "What are you doing here? Mom is going to be mad at you! She sent me to bring Grandpa these...

"Happy birthday!" Anne said when she arrived at her friend Rennah's birthday party. Anne was excited because her family had moved recently, and she had been praying for new friends. Now she had some. But there was a problem at Rennah's party. "Okay, you guys," Rennah said when they were ready to play the first game. "Here's what you do. Everybody has to draw a slip of paper from this basket. When it's your turn, you have to do what it says." She began to pass the basket, and each girl pulled...

Josiah felt like his head was going to explode. "Get married!" he boomed. "You're going to get married? To Mr. Ford? But what about Dad?" "Josiah, you know that after your dad left us, he married someone else. He won't be back," Mom said quietly. "I thought you liked Ryan." "Not for a dad! And I definitely don't want Theo and Simon for brothers either." Josiah stomped to his room, fighting back tears. The next day they went to church, and Josiah, who normally loved going, was sad all...

Getting Ready

Amy picked up the tissues and old drawings off the floor and threw them in the trash can. As she was making her bed, her little sister Cindy ran into the room. Amy's dad followed her. "Grandma's coming!" Cindy yelled. She had already told all her friends and teachers at preschool, and she still wanted to tell someone else the good news. "I know, Cindy," Amy said. She picked up a toy and set it on her shelf. "That's why I'm cleaning my room." Cindy bounced up on the bed, wrinkling the neatly...

Wonderfully Made

Karl and Rhett watched as Dad assembled a miniature model of the human body they had gotten for their homeschool biology class. "I'm amazed at God's creation," Dad said. "Did you know that the human heart, which is only about as big as a clenched fist, pumps over 4,000 gallons of blood a day?" "I heard that in our class videos," said Rhett. "We learned about eyes too. They're set in holes, or sockets, and they're protected by seven interlocking bones." "And our eyelashes and eyebrows keep...

Leaving Tracks

Miles stomped his feet to warm them while he waited at the edge of the woods for his grandpa and sister, Callie. When they caught up with him, Callie pointed. "What animal made these tracks, Grandpa?" Grandpa crouched in the fresh snow to peer at the tracks. "Let's see. Four toes and a heel. And see what a straight line he left? I'd say a fox was here. A fox's narrow chest lets him place one paw right in front of the other, which is why there's a single line of prints." They followed the...
