Tell Me Your Story

Posted by on Jan 26, 2016 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Epic Stories for Kids | 0 comments

If you’ve ever read the gospel of Luke, you’ll immediately see that it is full of amazing details. Luke wrote those details not as an eyewitness, but as a researcher. Luke, a Greek physician, wrote the books of Luke and Acts, addressed to “most Excellent Theophilus,” and at the beginning states that he did extensive research to get the story right. What did that look like? In my sixth novel, I bring Luke alive, along with others in the book of Acts. In this scene, Luke interviews Zaccheus about his encounter with Jesus. The wee little man just tells his story. And that’s all Jesus asked his followers to do—simply tell their story. I hope you have a Jesus story to tell your children. It will be the most important one you’ll ever share with them. Excerpt from The...

How Did the Wise Men Know to Look for a King?

Posted by on Dec 24, 2015 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Epic Stories for Kids | 0 comments

You’ve sung “We Three Kings” all your life, but have you ever wondered how they knew to look for a king after they saw the star? And were they really kings? They actually were magi, which translates to wise men, not kings. But part of their job description was to appoint and approve kings. So how did they make the leap of seeing the brightest star anyone had ever seen, and know to bring gifts to worship a king? It must have been because they studied the prophecies about this unusual newborn King of the Jews. Perhaps they read Isaiah’s words that “Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the Lord.” In my third novel, I novelize the Christmas...

Do you read the Bible aloud with your children? There can be no sweeter time of “training your child in the way he should go” than to spend time in God’s word. What goes into the first of life goes throughout all of life. I would encourage you to pick up a children’s Bible to make it easy and fun to understand. Have you ever wondered exactly how the New Testament came together—not just a group of guys deciding which books to include, but the actual writing of each and every book? I decided to tackle this question with books five and six. I extensively researched each and every book in the New Testament and novelized how those words were originally penned. Selfishly, I enjoy writing these books for my own education. I learned so much! And now the...

The Dreamer, the Schemer, and the Robe

Posted by on Aug 27, 2015 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Epic Stories for Kids | 0 comments

Back to school! That phrase elicits cheers from parents and sighs from kids across the world. It can be an exciting, fun time, or it can be a scary, uncertain time. Whatever your child’s current experience, it helps to know they aren’t alone and that kids across time have had to endure the rigors of the classroom. In my second novel, two of my characters actually visit an Egyptian school. British mouse Nigel takes French cat Liz to observe how Egyptian kids learn to write in hieroglyphs so she can decipher their writing. Enjoy this excerpt. You as the parent can still learn a thing or two inside a classroom, even an Egyptian one. In my novels, animal characters work behind the scenes in pivotal points of history to explain what happened in the Bible and why. As you...
