extraordinary-2017For 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.

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.

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

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!

 

 

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

May Jesus, GOD WITH US, fill your heart to overflowing with his love and grace. Under Stories for Children you can find a story about a boy in Peru who discovered the Best Gift. It could be a boy from any country, but I chose Peru since that is where I grew up. I got married in Peru and I gave birth to my two daughters there. The illustrator for our stories is a fine young lady from Peru–Cristina Alvarez. Peru has a special place in my heart!

Have you seen the PowerPoints about the Christmas Story? The illustrations were done by Absalom-Leon Sixco from Costa Rica. He is originally from El Salvador. How fitting that a man from El Salvador [The Savior] should illustrate the story of the Savior! Find the PPTs under Christmas.

I am spending Christmas with my grandkids, my inspiration!

May we all worship Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
