For Kids

When Pintado came home

I have a dog called Pintado (which means “Spotty” in English). He used to live on the streets, and he was very skinny and poorly cared for.

Bullied? Don't give up!

In third grade, my best friend, whom I knew from kindergarten, was in my class. We were very happy.

A sweet song to sing

One time, I saw a little boy at the side of a swimming pool, grabbing on to his mom’s legs, refusing to let go. He didn’t want to jump into the water.

'Rock the ice!'

I play many sports, but ice hockey is definitely my favorite. I’m in fourth grade and have played hockey for six years.

Kids ask...How did God create Himself?

That’s an important question! Let’s look together at something the Bible says about God: “You are always the same. Years cannot change you” (Psalms 102:27, Contemporary English Version).

I knew I was in God's arms

My name is Olivia. I like to rollerblade after school.

Where is God?

God is up and God is down. God is here and all around.

Being brave

I go to school in Australia. I have a nice school where people are usually kind.

Healed on 'Going to Town Day'

One morning I woke up with a tummy ache. I didn’t know if I would be able to go to school.

My bus healing

One Sunday, I told my Sunday School teacher that my school bus was sometimes too noisy and crazy. Some kids even jumped over the seats! Then, the bus driver would pull over and yell, “Sit down!” My Sunday School teacher told me that I could pray to know that everyone on my bus was God’s child, too, and that they really wanted to be good.
