The Great Escape

Plagues swept the city. People cried out, "Why is this happening to us?" But in the Israelite part of the city, the people were safe. There were no plagues.

That Grand Easter Day!

Easter 2017 was definitely an Easter to remember because we spent it in Washington, D.C. We got dressed (I had a very pretty dress) and we did an Easter egg hunt at the church we visited.

Let the Little Children Come

It has been awhile since I've seen Gospel tracts. The 8-year-old got a hold of these before I did and had her eyes wide when she looked at them. (See pic below.) I went to see what she was looking at, and my initial response was, "These ain't your grandma's Gospel tracts." :p hahaha! Take... Continue Reading →

The Star

We are a bunch of writers and storytellers around here and a few months ago we were thinking of taking already-written stories and telling the stories from the point-of-view of another character.
