Today’s story was inspired by a fire in the center of Lima, Peru. The fire was in a commercial area and lasted several days. Today we want to show the great fire that our words can cause.
Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3: 5,6
Instead of concentrating on all the bad things that our words can do, we want to focus on the positive, like “SPARKS OF KINDNESS.”
Miss Beatriz suggested to the children that instead of starting a fire of lies, they should send “sparks of truth” flying from their mouths through the good words they say.
She taught them a saying to help them initiate a “fire of truth” that never goes out. One of the treasures of the club will be kindness. May it be the same in our lives!

Don’t miss out on the memory verse
We offer i big size, that can be displayed, and also a smaller version to cut out and give each student one to take home and practice and learn.
To make sure that you get the right size for your paper, we offer letter size and A4. If you have a different size in your country, send me a note and I might be able to do the verses in the size, too.
Nothing is more important than to hide the Word of God in our heart!!!
Have a blessed week making sparks of kindness fly!
For the following month I will be busy preparing a move. God has provided for me a new home close to my daughter and grandchildren.
When I am settled in my new home I will continue providing new stories. May God bless you richly and give you a wonderful year.

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!
Little 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 story pictured here is coming… with more than just the story.
Johnny stepped on an ant hill and worried about how he could help the ants. He would have to become an ant! Ad the ants would have to accept his help!
Welcome to read the story. Go to the page STORIES FOR CHILDREN.
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!
My precious Swedish great-niece Alida
“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.
Welcome to read the story: Elmer and the Exploding Temper on the page Stories for Children. Read and pass on the information to your friends. Tell your Children’s Pastor at Church about this page!
Blessings to you and yours!
