When the Creepy Things Come Out

[ages 4-8 ]

Ha! I laugh. Nothing can scare me! But, what was that? Something's knocking, rocking, just unlocking what could it be? I hear growling, howling, something yowling I can't see! What's begun is all in fun, but just beware of what's out there! I'm trying in a fun way to show you what to do when you're feeling just a little frightened by your own shadow. All you have to remember is that God is in those shadows, behind the masks, and always there whether the light's on or off. You can have fun because He's with you always!

The Easterville Miracle

[ages 4-8]

Just as a little boy named Sam and an old man named Henry remind the town of Easterville, best-selling author Melody Carlson reminds us as well that the true meaning of Easter is not Easter bonnets, baskets, colored eggs, candy, or decorations. It is the glorious story of a cross on a hill and an empty tomb, and the wonderful news of forgiveness that the Easter story brings us.
