Launching Bed-Time Stories

Who doesn’t like a good bed-time story? My grandchildren love them! More… One more… they will ask. Children all around Latin America have been getting my stories over the internet for six years. This month I celebrate #300!

300 perlitas ENGLittle by little the stories are taking shape in English. I have to give credit where credit is due. My dear friend Nancy puts them into English. I send her a google-translated copy of my Spanish stories and she gives them the English version. She will put her own little twist to them!

I haven’t posted the regular stories for some time because of time restraint. To complete a story with coloring page, activity and poster takes time. I had helpers for a while but they moved on. This evening I posted a new story. Check it out under STORIES FOR CHILDREN. Then a light-bulb turned on! Why not publish just a story, without the activities?  Why not do them as bed-times stories? That way I could provide more stories!

I have many stories in my “to-do” file. So there will be many bed-time stories to come. I hope you will enjoy them… thanks to Nancy and yours truly.

The Father of Modern Missions

I have not forgotten you, dear friends who come to this page. I have been working hard on another story that involves India. Since I wrote about the Missionary Thomas God has put India on my heart. I hope to some day personally go there and bring them my teaching materials. But first I have to finish my projects in Spanish. I am covering the entire Bible with stories to download for free. I still have 80 some lessons to finish, which I hope to have done in two years. Then I will devote my time to English.


I used to have some help to get the stories done in English but I don’t have that help at present, that’s the reason I don’t publish many stories here. Spanish is my priority. Pray with me that I will find someone to work with me on the English stories.

But I am happy to announce that you can now download 6 story-papers about William Carey. There will also be a PowerPoint and pictures that you might want to use to tell the story.

Go to the page WILLIAM CAREY. God bless you in your work with children!

A Missionary to India

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you,
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the end of the earth.”  Acts 1:8

Jesus promise was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost. From that day on the gospel message has spread to the ends of the earth. But there are still many people who have not heard the Good News.

One of the first missionaries, along with Peter, Paul and the other apostles was Thomas. We read about his missionary endeavors not in the Bible but in history books. Thomas went as a missionary to India.

Find the story about Thomas the missionary under Stories for Children.

Children’s Love and Compassion

As we are in the Season of remembering the price our Savior paid for our redemption, I have three new stories that I hope will be an encouragement for children. My great-niece is only four years old but she has a tender heart and loves and prays for the children suffering in Syria and Iraq. Here she is showing off the bracelets she has made to raise money for those children. I was so inspired by her that I wrote a story, The compassion of Alida. Find it under STORIES FOR CHILDREN, together with two other stories of love and compassion.

As Jesus our Savior admonishes, let us be merciful, just as our Father is merciful (See Luke 6:36). May you have a blessed Easter!

Watching Our Tempers

“The tongue is mightier than the sword.”

The sword can only wound on the outside, but with our tongue we damage on the inside. That was a lesson a father wanted to teach his son, a boy who had a very bad temper. With God’s help the boy learned.

Prov 2123
