For Children.

Ashley makes some friends

Ashley moved to a new house, and started the sixth grade in a new school. She loved her new home, especially her purple room. There was even space for her guinea pig's cage next to her bed.

At school, however, the kids seemed unfriendly even though she was nice to them. Ashley found that her classmates had already made their friends when they were younger. It was hard not to feel left out, especially since she had always had special friends where she lived before.

One night Ashley was very sad. She wondered what God wanted her to learn about friendships. So she asked her mom—a Christian Science practitioner—what she should do. (A practitioner is an individual who helps people through prayer.) They talked about how to pray for healing. From their talks, Ashley learned a lot about God. She learned that He is Love, and that each one of His children reflects He love. Because Love is infinite, no one could be outside of it. Love is everywhere, all the time—even at school.
