Dad sat on the bed and pulled Ted and Beth near to him. "Moving will bring a lot of changes for us all," he said.... "I'm counting on you two to be my big helpers. Let's pray that you can get along and think about others before yourselves."

Daniel felt trapped. If he said Jesus was his Captain, Dad would ask why he hadn't been sharing. But it didn't seem fair to share a personal refuge. He didn't want to be selfish, really. "I don't know," he muttered. "I just wanted to be by myself."

Daniel pretended not to notice when Chad... began looking over the new Pigeon-Raiser's Guide. I really don't care, anyway, he told himself, and began poking at the fire. Dad sat down in a nearby chair. "So, Daniel, how did your pigeons like their new loft?"

Daniel rolled his eyes and walked off. I don't like Robert and I don't want to be his friend, Daniel thought. I guess I'm really prejudiced. Maybe if I found a box of Robert's drawings I would burn them. Hitler burned people's things. Daniel frowned.

Daniel was tired of his talking, and disappointed that he had spotted the ripped bark first. "Just be quiet a bit," he grumbled. "You're scaring all the animals." Just then he noticed a large, rounded shape in the snow and pulled out his track guide. Could it be...?

|Parent and Child | Jacob W. Byers||Parenting|
Dear parents, we hold the highest and most God-honored position in this world, and to a large extent hold in our hands the destiny of our own children.... Oh, that God may waken us to our important duties and opportunities!... We must grasp them now.

|Considering Marriage? | Margaretta Kennedy||Marriage|
Dear young people, let God direct you in choosing a companion. You cannot of yourself choose the right companion. You may think that a certain one is the only one who can give you the love and happiness you desire, but it may be that love will grow cold.

Determine to always do the right thing, for Jesus. When you feel like stopping, do a little more. Give all your problems and the praise of others to Jesus for baking. When the trials of disappointment and troubles come to test you, pour on a little unselfishness.

|Christ Our Healer | Albert B. Simpson, 1890||Healing|
Divine healing is the supernatural, divine power of God, infused into human bodies, renewing their strength and replacing the weakness of suffering human frames with the life and power of God.... It is the same power... that converted your soul.

"Does the devil talk to everyone?" he asked. "Why, yes," said Mother. "He will whisper bad ideas to anyone who will listen. But there are two voices. God's Spirit always tells us to do what is right. I hope my little boy will always listen to the right voice."

|Is Holiness Legalism? | John Wesley, 1762||Holiness|
Do not say, "I can do nothing." If so, then you know nothing of Christ. Then you have no faith. For if you have faith, if you believe, then you "can do all things through Christ" who strengthens you. You can love Him and keep His commandments.

Don't you know that there are lots of times it is hard to be cheerful and kind? It is like a stormy winter day when plants don't want to grow.... But Jesus has a way for us to "sprout" on those stormy winter days.

"Don't you think it would be better to keep busy trying to serve others, rather than getting into trouble for being a pest?" Grandpa said to Edward, his eyes twinkling. "God is pleased when we do hard things patiently. He will help us be kind when others are cross."

"Do you believe Jesus has the answers for your needs tonight?" he asked. "Maybe you have suffered many years. You've tried to find peace and rest, but nothing works. Will you come to Jesus? He is able to heal your soul and your body, too."

Do you have a favorite toy, a new book, or special clothes that you like very much? Yes? Then you want to preserve it from getting ruined, don't you? Well, that's exactly what I want to do with this orange. I want to keep it safe so that we can enjoy it for a long, long time.

Do you know that there is a time to cry? I'm not talking about crying about your blocks falling over. You aren't a baby anymore. But we all need to be like babies in one way. We need to realize when we need help.

"Do you know what a conscience is?... A conscience is something inside you that tells you if you have done something bad. It reminds us of things we have done that we should not have done." Misha understood. Yes, his conscience was talking to him.

Do you know why God doesn't give us loud cheers? Because He is working on a secret mission. Not many people even know about it, because it is only for those that have learned to listen with their hearts. Have you?
