God, According to an 8 Year Old

God, According to an 8 Year Old Written by an 8 year old from Chula Vista, CA, for his third grade homework assignment. The assignment was to explain God. I just wonder if any of us could do as well? ————————————————— One of God’s main jobs is making people.

Tell Them of His Love

What can we teach our children? What words of wisdom can we impart? We must teach them about our Father. It is the only place to start.

Children would be running in and out while adults talked and laughed and enjoyed being together. Soon grace would be said and the...

Jesus Saved Me

Before our beginning a long time ago. There began a story of love and woe. It’s a story of giving and of love, It’s about a man that came from above. This man was made of the finest things. His hair was made of golden strings His feet were made of fine brass. His conscience was as clear as a pane of glass. His heart was as good as the world is round If his love were a liquid we all would drown He has a face so perfect it made the angels cry. To save our souls from damnation...
