Stories for Children

This is the page where you will find stories for children. I have been publishing stories in Spanish for more than six years, having to date some 300 stories. My grandchild Brianna would always ask me when I would do them in English. Now is the time. Teachers, parents, grandparents, and most of all children. Enjoy! Please pass on the information so more children can have life-application stories.

You can find more stories under ANY-TIME STORIES. Those stories do not have activities. Use them to read to your children and grandchildren as a bed-time treat or anytime. They will love them!


Story to show that only following  Jesus gives us salvation. Being good is not enough. The rich young ruler went away sad because he loved his riches more than Jesus.
