The Sin Tester

8/5/2020
"Oh no!" moaned Drake as he looked at the swimming pool. "There's green stuff in the water!" He and Amaya had the responsibility of putting chemicals into the pool when needed. But they hadn't done their job. "Now we'll have to put in extra chemicals to kill all that algae, and we won't be able to swim for a couple of days," Drake said, wiping sweat off his forehead. "And they're supposed to be the hottest days we've had all summer!" Amaya sighed, fanning herself. "How did it get like this...

The Hopeless Case (Part 2)

8/4/2020
Tessa decided to go with her mother to visit their elderly neighbor a second time--and several times after that. "Don't you think we might as well give up?" Tessa asked at last. "I don't think Mrs. Bennett will ever have any interest in God." "Don't forget, being a friend is a long-term commitment," said Mom. "Let's not give up." Tessa sighed, but she continued to go along when her mother went to visit Mrs. Bennett. One day, Tessa was surprised to hear Mrs. Bennett ask, "Why do you keep...

The Hopeless Case (Part 1)

8/3/2020
"Poor Mrs. Bennett," said Mom. "I think she must be very lonely. She told me last week that all three of her children live across the country with their own families now, so she hardly sees them." "Is that the old lady who lives on the corner?" asked Tessa. Mom nodded. "I'm going to visit her this afternoon. Want to come along?" Tessa hesitated. I've always wondered what the inside of her house looks like, she thought. So Tessa decided to go with her mother. After Mom knocked on Mrs....

A Just-right Place

8/2/2020
Nate eagerly ripped open the envelope. He took the letter out and quickly looked at the ending. Yep. It ends the same way, he thought, and I can't get anybody to tell me what it means! Nate had spent a few weeks of his summer vacation in the mountains with his grandparents, followed by a couple weeks of camp. While he was away, he'd received several letters from home, and each one ended with, "We have a big surprise for you when you get back." Nate wondered about the surprise. It must be a...

A New Beginning

8/1/2020
I'll never be happy here, Cassidy thought as she stared out the window at the kids playing next door. Her family had moved far away from their old home for her mom's job. I'll never find friends like I had before, she thought sadly. There's no use even trying. So she didn't try at all. She didn't go out to play with the neighbor kids, and if any of the kids at church spoke to her, she mumbled a reply and looked at the ground. One Saturday the family took a trip to the ocean. As Cassidy...

Thoughtful Redecorating

7/31/2020
Mom looked around Alicia's room in admiration. "I still can't get over how lovely your room looks since we tore down that ugly green wallpaper and repainted the walls." "I know!" said Alicia. "It sure was a lot of hard work, but now I love how my new room looks with the lilac paint and white picture frames." Mom smiled. "Are you ready to go school supply shopping now?" Alicia's forehead wrinkled. "I guess," she mumbled. "What's wrong, sweetie? You're usually excited to help me shop for your...

Proper Dress

7/30/2020
"Knox!" Dad knocked on his son's bedroom door. "Want to go with me on a bike ride?" Knox opened the door in his bathrobe. "Sure," he said. "Just give me a minute to get dressed. I just got out of the shower." Soon Knox hurried out to the garage where Dad was waiting. "Oh no," said Knox. "I forgot my helmet." He ran into the house and grabbed his bike helmet. "Okay, Dad. Let's go," he said when he came back outside. Dad leaned on his bike. "You're sure you're finally ready?" he asked....

The Fear of God

7/29/2020
"Look, Dad," said Nora as she and her father walked along the beach. "That man over there has a sign on a stick. It says, 'Fear God.'" She frowned. "You always say God is our Father. Aren't we supposed to love and trust Him?" "Yep,'' Dad said, "just like you love and trust me-- only more." He smiled and squeezed her arm. "Then we aren't supposed to fear God like that sign says, are we?" asked Nora. "I'm not afraid of you, so why should I be afraid of God?" "Well..." Dad looked toward the...

The Lost One

7/28/2020
Luke frantically looked for his newest toy. He had just bought it a few days before after saving up money to get it, and now it was nowhere to be found. He remembered placing it in his backpack, but it wasn't there now. Are you 100 percent sure that you placed it in your bag?" Mom asked. "Yes, 100 percent sure," replied a very distraught Luke. "I haven't seen it," Mom told him as she started to help him look for it. The more Luke looked, the more he feared the worst. Mom had taken some trash...

A Different Look

7/27/2020
Willow looked out the front window when she heard the doorbell ring. Dannica stood on the front porch. All right! Willow thought. Dannica's back! The summer's been so boring without her. Willow raced toward the door--then stopped and stood still. Mom came in from the kitchen just in time to see Willow remove her glasses, put them on the hall table, and once again head for the door. "Whoa!" said Mom. "Put your glasses on, Willow. You know you're supposed to wear them all the time." Willow had...

Because It's Sunday?

7/26/2020
Axel had asked a simple enough question, but Ryker was stumped for an answer. "Why do I always go to church?" Ryker repeated, stalling for time to think of a good answer to give his friend. "Yeah." Axel sounded like he really wanted to know. "Why do you and your family always go to church?" "Because...because..." Ryker hesitated. He wasn't sure what his answer should be. "Because it's Sunday," he said at last. Axel looked at him quizzically, then smirked. "That's a stupid answer! That's like...

A Heated Argument

7/25/2020
Zintle's dad poked at the fire with a stick. The flames had settled, leaving a hot glow on the coals. "Zintle, our fire is ready. Go fetch the meat from your mom in the kitchen." Zintle rolled her eyes. "Stepmom." She kicked a stone on the ground. "I'm not talking to her. Send Siko." Dad stopped fiddling with the fire and frowned at her. "What's going on?" "She's always yelling and bossing me around," said Zintle. "No matter what I do, it's always, 'Zintle, do this...Zintle, do that.' So...

Knowing God

7/24/2020
"Mom?" Zane came into his mother's office with his friend Toms. "Can Toms stay the night? We're doing a report on Abraham Lincoln and need to work on it some more." "Sure," said Mom, "if it's okay with his parents, and if he doesn't mind going to church with us in the morning." "I don't mind," said Toms. "My family doesn't go to church much. My mom says God is too hard to understand. I think she's right." "Don't you think Abraham Lincoln is hard to understand too?" asked Mom. "Well, learning...

Hide and Seek

7/23/2020
"Come out, come out, wherever you are!" yelled Dad. Maddie giggled happily as her dad missed her hiding spot in the bushes. He looked high in the trees and under the deck, and he even started looking in the house for her. "Have you seen Maddie?" he asked Mom. Mom said no. He went back outside and called out to her. "Maddie!" She started giggling again, and this time Dad found her. "Oh no! I was hoping you would never find me. It was so hard not to laugh," Maddie said as he scooped her into...

After the Struggle

7/22/2020
"Nearly there, Liam," Dad said one glorious Saturday morning as they climbed up the steep hill toward Redcap Park. Liam followed Dad, treading carefully. They had been walking a few miles uphill already. "How much is nearly there?" he huffed as he took a sip of water. "Not long," said Dad. "Like most things, it will be worth it after the struggle." Both of them trudged on, humming as they came toward the hilltop. It looked like the path was going to disappear completely into the clouds, but...

Wait and See

7/21/2020
"Where are we going, Dad?" asked Collin as his father turned a corner. "Wait and see," Dad said with a wink. "Psychic Readings," Collin read aloud as they drove past a sign on a nearby building. "Have your fortune told here." "I'd like to know the future," said sixteen-year-old Lena. "Like...will Sean ask me to Homecoming?" "Yeah, it would be cool to know what's going to happen," agreed Collin. "I'd like to know if I'll pass my math test tomorrow." Dad shook his head. "Fortune tellers don't...

Signs and Stickers

7/20/2020
"I. got a V!" Marley yelled as a van with a bumper sticker on the back passed their car. "See--that bumper sticker says, 'Visualize world peace.'" She crossed the letter V off her sheet of paper. On vacation with their dad, Marley and her brother, Gabe, were playing a game to see who could be the first to find signs and bumper stickers that started with each letter of the alphabet. As Gabe glanced at the van, its driver angrily blasted his horn at another driver who had pulled in front of...

A Higher View

7/19/2020
Talia and Malik grinned at each other as their family rode the elevator to the observation deck of the Willis Tower, the tallest building in Chicago. Their ears popped as they whizzed past floor after floor, going higher and higher. When they got off the elevator, they ran to the window to look out at the view below. "Everything looks so tiny!" Talia exclaimed. "The cars look like toys." Malik laughed. "Yeah, and the highways look like black snakes sneaking in and out of the city." "You can...

Clean it Away

7/18/2020
"Thanks for helping me with this," Mom said after she and Everly had finished dusting and vacuuming the living room. "It sure looks a lot better in here now." Everly smiled and glanced around the newly cleaned room. The sun shone brightly through the window. "Oh no!" she said as she looked at the end table. "I missed a spot when I dusted this. It didn't show up until the sunlight hit it." She ran to get the dust cloth. "You know something?" Mom said as Everly dusted the table again. "Our...

The Only Way In

7/17/2020
Devon frowned at his friend Amir. "You really believe there's only one way to heaven?" he asked. "My mom says there are lots of people following different ways to get there. She says anybody who does what they sincerely believe is right will go to heaven. Like...some people practice Buddhism. If they're sincere and try to make themselves better people, God will let them into heaven." Amir shook his head. "They might be sincere, but they're wrong. The Bible says we have to trust in Jesus to...
