A Fine-Free Day

"Look at this, Mom!" Konrad pointed to a webpage on his tablet. "It says here the local library has declared today to be a fine-free day. All overdue books can be returned without paying a fine." Konrad grinned. "I have a whole bunch of books that are overdue!" Konrad's sister laughed. "When the librarians see you coming, they'll be sorry they made that decision. Think of all the money they'll lose!" "Go get all those overdue books, Konrad. Then we'll go down to the library," said Mom,...

Mom turned from the sink when she heard a door slam and feet running quickly down the stairs. "Mom!" Alicia cried as she ran into the kitchen. "Candice is being mean to me, and she even said she hates Christmas!" Alicia's foster mom dried her hands. "I heard some loud voices up there and wondered what that was all about." "I wanted her to help me look for Christmas toys online," Alicia explained, "but she just got mad and yelled at me." Mom poured Alicia a glass of water as they sat at the...

"Five more people were saved at the revival meeting tonight!" Regan's father exclaimed as he walked into the house late one evening. "I'm so glad Pastor Henderson was able to be the special speaker for the week. I always thought he had a real gift for preaching." "Yes, and several others renewed their faith in Jesus," Mom said happily. "Your friend's messages are certainly touching people's hearts this week." Regan didn't say anything, but she was confused. Why are all those people listening...

Pigeon, Be Still

"Watch me, Grandma. I'm a pigeon!" Dallas said with a giggle as they walked through the park. Soon Grandma was laughing because Dallas had captured the pigeon walk perfectly--head forward stop head back stop. "If you're a pigeon, Dallas, you better have some popcorn," Grandma said when they reached the sidewalk vendor. She bought some and they sat down on a bench to eat it. Soon pigeons were all around their feet. "I think you're feeding more popcorn to the birds than you're eating...

Home Alone

As Josie headed home after school, she dreaded going into the empty house. She thought about what her teacher had told her class earlier that day. "There are millions of kids who are home without adults for some time each day," Mrs. Richards had said. "Many of them are scared but don't want to admit it. However, feeling afraid when you're home alone is nothing to be ashamed of. If you're in this situation, don't hesitate to talk to your parents or another adult." Josie sighed as she unlocked...

"Wow, look at the snow!" six-year-old Emery exclaimed as she and her brother Cole looked out the living room window. Together they watched fat flakes of snow drift down. The weather woman had said a big snowstorm--a blizzard--was coming, so all morning they had watched for it. Emery and Cole had recently moved from the South to a northern city and had never seen a snowstorm, so they weren't sure what to expect. By noon, the wind was howling and snow was falling fast--it seemed to be coming...

Christmas in Color

Summer carefully placed the last glittering ornament on the Christmas tree and grinned. "Cameron, it's ready!" Summer's older brother started the countdown, then plugged in the lights. "It looks awesome!" Cameron exclaimed. "I like how we pick a color theme every year. Red and gold is the best theme yet!" "Mom, I've been wondering--why do we decorate with certain colors at Christmas? You see some colors way more than others, like red, green, and gold," Summer mused. "That's a great question,...

The Story of Santa

"Ho, ho, ho! And a merry Christmas to you!" bellowed a tall Santa at the entrance to Mia's favorite toy store. Mia and her dad were doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. They needed a few more things for the shoeboxes they were filling for kids who lived in orphanages in poor countries. "Dad, why do I see so many Santas around at Christmas instead of manger scenes?" Mia wondered aloud. "Everywhere I look I see Santa! See, there's a gigantic stuffed Santa right over there!" "I agree,...

"Jesus loves each and every one of you," said Mrs. Anderson, Kiera's Bible club teacher. It was the end of the meeting and everyone had their heads bowed for the closing prayer. "He died on the cross and rose again to save you from sin and give you eternal life. Won't you accept His free gift of salvation? Someday it will be too late." Kiera squirmed in her seat. "If you'd like to be saved tonight," Mrs. Anderson continued, "will you raise your hand and let me know? I would like to pray for...

Puzzle Pieces

Frustrated, Todd and Jason held blue puzzle pieces in their hands, trying to figure out where to put them. "This is so hard!" Todd said as he tried fitting pieces together. "Every piece looks the same!" Jason slammed down his piece of the blue sky. Mrs. Stenman, Todd's mom, laughed in the kitchen. "You boys need a break! C'mon and get a snack." "Just don't feed us anything blue. I'm tired of blue," Todd complained. The boys walked into the kitchen and plopped down at the table. Mrs. Stenman...

A Painful Blessing

"Catch, Wyatt!" Mom tossed a Frisbee high in the air. "Don't let Avery get it!" Wyatt and Mom were a team against Avery and Dad. Avery squealed and reached for the spinning disk, but Wyatt jumped and caught it with the tips of his fingers. He came down hard and felt his ankle twist as he hit the ground with a thud. "Ouch!" he cried, grabbing his ankle. Mom and Dad came running over. "I'm okay," Wyatt said, but when he took a step, pain shot through his foot. He limped over to a park bench....

"See you tomorrow, guys!" shouted Forest, ducking snowballs as he ran through the back door. "Sounds like quite a fight out there," said Alec, his older brother. "It is!" exclaimed Forest. "My sled makes a great shield. I built up a stockpile of snowballs behind it, and then--BAM! Nobody could hit me!" "So why did you quit?" Alec asked. Taking off all his snow gear, Forest sighed. "I have to study for a Bible test tomorrow," he explained. "Sometimes I wish I weren't homeschooled. Mom makes...

Nadia cried out as she tripped on the steps to the door of her house. "Ouch! My knee!" She looked down at her badly skinned knee and started to cry. "What's wrong?" asked Mom when Nadia came in. Nadia pointed to her knee. "Let's clean that up," Mom said, picking up baby Olive and heading for the bathroom. Seated on the edge of the tub, Nadia watched Mom open the medicine cabinet. When Olive saw all the shiny bottles inside, she reached for them eagerly. "No, no," said Mom, and she set...

"Grandpa's here!" Koda called as his grandfather drove into the yard. "He said he was going to bring some coins for your collection, didn't he?" said Koda's sister, Gwen. "I wonder what kind he has." After greeting everyone, Grandpa put a bag full of coins on the table. "I thought you might like these, Koda. I got most of them in various countries I visited when I traveled in Europe on business many years ago." "There are lots of different kinds," Gwen observed after looking them over....

"My nose is so ugly," moaned Bella as she glared at her reflection in the mirror. "Why do I have to be stuck with such a big nose?" "I like your nose just fine," said Mom. "You're a beautiful girl." "Oh, you have to say that," said Bella. "You're my mother." "I think anyone would agree that you look beautiful," Mom said. "Besides, remember that true beauty comes from our hearts. God made every person special with the potential for the beauty that comes from knowing Jesus. When we know Him,...

Two Lists

Marcus picked up a pen and drew a line down the middle of a piece of paper to make two columns. His Sunday school teacher had asked the class to bring in a list of things they were thankful for and a list of things they were not so thankful for. Let's see I'm thankful for Mom and Dad, thought Marcus. He wrote "parents" on his thankful list. And I'm thankful for my dog and my friends and for food and for my new shoes. I'm thankful for our church too, and especially for Jesus. Marcus's list...

"Cora, can you go get the mail, please?" Cora's mom asked as she watered her poinsettia. "But it's so cold out!" Cora complained. Mom gave her a look, and Cora sighed. "All right, I will." Cora pulled on her boots and coat and stepped out into the cold night. As she walked down the driveway, she thought she heard a whimper coming from the bushes near their mailbox. She bent down and pushed the branches out of the way, then gasped. "Oh! A puppy!" Cora held out her hand, and the tiny white...

"Whoa, there!" Mom said when she saw her daughter's tear-stained cheeks. "What's wrong?" Lydia sniffled. "Emma and I had a fight." "I'm sorry to hear that. Come tell me about it." Mom put two cookies on a plate and poured a glass of milk for Lydia. "What did you fight about?" Lydia stared at her plate, still sniffling. "She said I'm a terrible singer!" "Emma said that?" Mom asked in disbelief. "Did she use those words?" "Well . . ." Lydia bit into a cookie. "She didn't use those exact...

Janet stared out the car window, her forehead pressing against the glass. Dad looked over at her. "Anything happen at school today?" he asked gently. "No," mumbled Janet. "Everything's fine." But it wasn't fine. Janet's best friend, Sarah, had been ignoring her all week. It bothered Janet so much that she had started ignoring Sarah too, and when Sarah tried to ask what was wrong, Janet rudely told her to go away. Dad rubbed his forehead. "We're going to stop by the gas station before we go...

"Jamal! Wake up!" Jamal opened one sleepy eye and glanced at the clock on the nightstand. Two o'clock in the morning! Why is Uncle Rob waking me up at this hour? he wondered, sitting up slowly. "I need your help moving some sheep," whispered Uncle Rob. "It's raining so hard that the south pasture could flood. The sheep there have to be moved." Now wide awake, Jamal jumped out of bed. After several hours of hard work, the sheep were high and dry, and Jamal tumbled back into bed. The next...
