Who Will You Listen To?

4/10/2020
A dodgeball whizzed past Grace's head, and she ducked, toppling over the plastic chair she'd been sitting in. I've had enough of this, she thought. The only time anyone notices me is when I get in the way of their games. She grabbed her backpack and marched out of the gym. In the bathroom, Grace curled up on the floor behind a blue stall door. It was safe here, better here. Away from the people, away from the noise. "Breathe," she whispered, but her breaths just got choppier and tears...

Don't Forget

4/9/2020
Dayton waved as his friend Cole hopped out of the van, then moved into the front seat beside his mother. "That was fun!" he told her. "I wish we could have a Sunday school class picnic every Saturday." Mom grinned wearily. "I don't! After all the work involved, I'm pretty exhausted." When they got home, Dad opened the car door. "Let me carry in the leftovers--if there are any," he said. "Did everyone have a good time?" "They seemed to," Mom said as she handed Dayton the volleyball equipment....

The Ketchup Bottle

4/8/2020
"I still don't see why we had to move," Gwen complained to her brother as they walked home from school. "Well, it's not so bad here," Liam replied. "The kids at our new school are pretty nice." Gwen scowled. "I don't think so. Some kid bumped into me during lunch and spilled milk on my shirt. It left a spot. I told him what I thought of him!" As they rounded a corner, Liam stepped in a puddle, splashing her. "Hey! Look what you just did!" Gwen yelled, pointing to a few small spatters of mud...

Erased

4/7/2020
Marshall tossed and turned in his bed. He knew it was the lie he had told that kept pricking his conscience and was keeping him awake. He punched the pillow, snuggled deeper under the covers, and squeezed his eyes shut. But he could not turn off the little voice in his head. Tell your mom you're sorry. Tell the truth tell the truth tell the truth. Marshall finally gave up. He scrambled out of bed and stumbled into the living room. His mom looked up from her computer as he burst into sobs....

Clean Inside and Out

4/6/2020
Presley put her napkin down and sighed. "What a great lunch!" She looked out the window. "Can we go to that park with the fountain now?" She pointed down the block, where a fountain near the sidewalk squirted water over anyone walking close by. "Oh, that looks like fun!" said Presley's brother, John. "Can we go, Dad?" With their parents' permission, the kids raced off down the block. Mom followed them while Dad paid the lunch bill. When he joined them, Presley and John were laughing and...

Not Defined by Frogs

4/5/2020
"Look at this one, Adri!" Adriana looked at the bright green bullfrog in her twin brother's hands. She shrugged. "It's all right. But I can find a bigger one." She spun around and marched into the deeper part of the swamp. "Better not go too far or your boots will get stuck," Alan called after her. Adriana waved her hand. "I'll be fine." Wading deeper and deeper, her boots filled with water, but she didn't care. She was determined. Then she saw a giant frog swim under a cluster of duckweed....

A Smelly Judgement

4/4/2020
"Dad, you won't believe what happened at school!" exclaimed Myah. She ran ahead of her brother and plopped her school bag onto the kitchen table. "Tell me about it," said Dad as he opened the fridge. "Do you want a glass of milk?" "No, thank you!" said Caden, making a sour face. "I'm done with milk for today!" "Me too," said Myah. She grinned at her brother. "So, Dad, you know how Caden's been complaining about a funny smell around his locker at school?" Dad nodded and looked at Caden....

Show the World

4/3/2020
"Yuck!" Gabriel exclaimed as he walked into the kitchen. "Do you guys have to do that?" "Do what?" Dad asked, his arm still around Mom's waist. "You know, hugging and"--Gabriel made a face--"kissing!" He quickly collected a bowl and spoon, keeping well out of his parents' way. Both of his parents laughed. "No, we don't have to. We get to," Mom explained. "It's one of the ways Dad and I show our affection for each other." "But Mom, parent PDAs are not cool!" "PDAs?" Mom asked. "Public...

Under Pressure

4/2/2020
Alexa watched her sister tighten the lids on several jars of beans and place them in a pressure cooker. Then she put the lid on the cooker and adjusted the heat. "How does a pressure cooker work, Hazel?" asked Alexa. She was spending the weekend at her older sister's apartment, and Hazel was showing her how to can beans they'd bought at the farmer's market. "The heat causes pressure to build up inside the cooker, which helps cook and preserve the beans inside the jars," Hazel replied. "When...

April Fool

4/1/2020
"Guess what!" exclaimed Skyler when Milo walked into the kitchen for breakfast. "There was a water pipe break, so they canceled school for the day." Milo didn't see the twinkle in his sister's eye. "All right!" he exclaimed. "I'm going to play my new video game and " His voice trailed off as his sister started laughing. "Actually, there was no water pipe break. We still have to go to school. April Fool!" Milo groaned, but then he grinned back at her. "Just you wait, Sky. I'll get you back!"...

Not Defeated

3/31/2020
At her youth group outing at an ice skating rink, Piper clung to the handrail when she first stepped onto the ice. She was skating for the first time. It looked so easy, but she found it to be much harder than it looked. She finally let go of the rail and eased out onto the ice. She was doing quite well when her feet suddenly seemed to slide right out from under her, and she fell. "Whoa!" she exclaimed. She got up slowly, went back to the handrail, and hung on once more. After a while, Piper...

Note: This story addresses violence and may not be suitable for young or sensitive children. "Look at the shapes in this painting," the art curator said, trying to speak over the kids in the class. The comment barely registered in Breanna's mind. Breanna's class was on a field trip to the Museum of Modern Art, but all she could think about was her cousin, who was shot and killed in her neighborhood only a few nights ago. Why does this happen? Breanna wondered, her heart heavy with grief. Is...

Treasures in Heaven

3/29/2020
Trevor and Tracie had coins lined up all over the living room floor when Mom walked out of the kitchen with her coffee. "Wow, that's a lot of coins you two have accumulated!" Mom remarked as she sat down at the table. "I almost have all the state coins!" Trevor said with a grin. "Do you have Michigan yet?" Tracie asked, holding up a quarter. "Trade me!" Trevor begged. "I need that one!" "Kids, seeing your coin collection reminds me that today is the last day to bring in money for the kids'...

Run to Jesus

3/28/2020
Savannah was swinging outside, staring up at the new buds forming on the tree branches. Suddenly, she heard an angry chattering sound. A cute fluffy brown squirrel shot across the yard and climbed the nearest tree. Asia, Savannah's calico cat, darted after the squirrel, then sat at the base of the tree meowing pitifully. "Asia!" Savannah said, giggling. "Leave that poor squirrel alone!" She turned to her younger sister. "Bethany! Did you see Asia chase that squirrel?" "Yeah!" Bethany...

Who Do You Love?

"Look, Grandma! Bunny clouds!" declared four-year-old Taya. "They're shaped like bunnies." Zander and Grandma shared a smile in the rearview mirror. Taya kept a rabbit at her grandma's house, and she seemed to eat, sleep, and breathe rabbits. As Grandma got dinner ready that evening, Zander grabbed his tablet and sat down to scroll through pictures of dirt bikes and dream about the one he was saving for. Taya went outside to feed Patches, the rabbit. Grandma stood at the sink, snapping peas...

Not So Different

3/26/2020
"Hey," Chase greeted Ariana as she came up the driveway after school. "Mom invited a girl--a missionary kid--to come for supper and go with us to the school talent show tonight. Her name's Lauren, and her family lives in Africa. They're visiting Pastor Burns this week, and Mom thought Lauren would like to meet some kids her own age." "Oh, great," said Ariana, rolling her eyes. "She probably wears funny clothes and doesn't have the slightest idea how she's supposed to act here. And all the...

Follow Your Heart…Maybe Not

3/25/2020
"Let's see the animals!" Kaylee was excited to spend the weekend at Emma's house. She only had a Chihuahua at her family's apartment. "Okay, hold on!" Emma said, laughing. The girls skipped along the path, serenading the goats and pigs as they passed their pens. They had just finished a movie about a girl who followed her dream to become a famous singer. "You can do anything you want, be anyone you want, and be a star if you only follow your heart!" the girls sang loudly as they danced and...

Glacier Lilies

3/24/2020
"I wish I could live up here," said Emma with a sigh. "It's so peaceful." She twirled around in the mountain meadow grass. Grandpa grinned. "After helping take care of those three little brothers of yours, an erupting volcano would probably seem peaceful." Emma laughed. "Sometimes the boys do drive me crazy, but Mom needed me to help when she was sick. I'll help again when I get back home." Just then Emma spotted snow in a clearing ahead. "Look, Grandpa! There's still some snow up here!" she...

Hot Flames

3/23/2020
Ava stomped off the bus and to the front door where her mom was waiting. "I hate Mrs. Larson!" "You hate her?" Mom asked as she opened the front door. "Those are some strong words. What happened?" "Well, I forgot to do my homework, so Mrs. Larson took points away from the whole class and we couldn't watch a movie today because we didn't have enough behavior points. Then everyone was mad at me! I wish she would get hit by a bus!" Her mom gave her a stern look, but then changed the subject....

A Protective Love

3/22/2020
"Hi, Mom! I want to see Snowball and the kittens," said Destiny as she came into the house. She had been running up the porch steps so fast she almost fell through the doorway. "Whoa! Slow down, honey." Mom laughed as she caught her daughter. Snowball, Destiny's cat, had appeared during a winter storm and soon became part of the family. When spring came, Destiny had noticed Snowball getting fatter and fatter. "She's going to have kittens," Mom had predicted--and she was right. Four adorable...
