What's New
Faith Like a Child
by Kristen Hester
Not For Sale
Author requests article critique


I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child
will never enter it.

Mark 10:15 NIV

Bad News
I tried to get my emotions under control as I broke the heartbreaking news to my children.

“Kids, I have some sad news. Great-grandmother died this morning.”

My son looked at me with misty eyes and a wide grin. “She’s with Papa, again. I bet they’re happy to be together.”
(50 words)

Fear Not
My son wanted a toy that was stored in the attic. Each time he opened the attic door my jokester father made a scary noise, pretending it came from the attic. Finally my son stopped at the door, said a prayer, took a deep breath, and bravely fetched his toy.
(50 words)

Out of this World
“Do you know I’m an alien?” my daughter told her unchurched friend.

“What?” Her friend was confused.

“The Bible says so in 1 Peter 2:11. That’s what I learned at church. Want to come with me Sunday?

The curious girl couldn’t resist. Perhaps she’d meet more aliens.
(47 words)

Answered Prayers
My daughter prayed for a younger sibling, but since my husband had a vasectomy we told her it wouldn’t happen. Amazingly, I did get pregnant. She was thrilled when we told her the news, but not surprised.

“Aren’t you surprised,” I asked. We certainly were.

“No. I prayed. Remember?”
(49 words)

Heavenly Ride
My grandmother lived with my parents for the last few years of her life. Shortly after her death we went to visit my parents and my daughter was surprised by what she saw in their garage.

“I guess God didn’t need grandma’s car to get her up to Heaven.”
(49 words)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

These are great! But I especially loved the alien one!

I loved them all, Kristen--the humor, the pathos, the simple child's faith.
Linda Germain  23 Sep 2007
Precious...and so much faith-filled truth out of the mouths of babes!
Betty Castleberry 23 Sep 2007
These are precious. I love them all, but Answered Prayers and Heavenly Ride really stand out to me. Very well done.
Laurie Walker 22 Sep 2007
Okay I think I LIVED the Answered Prayers one (except for the vasectomy part, lol). I believe those were my own daughter's exact words :)
Joanne Sher  22 Sep 2007
The alien one is absolutely my favorite. Love all of them, though, of course :) Excellent.
Linda Roth 22 Sep 2007
Kristen, I enjoyed these glimpses into tiny blessed scenes. They were all good, but I especially enjoyed, Fear Not. These stories brought back memories I have of the years I had little ones and hearing, "Mom!" every five minutes. (I know I timed it a couple of times.)
Esther Gellert 22 Sep 2007
Aren't kids wonderful. I loved the Answered Prayer one. Oh, to have the faith of a child, huh?
Seema Bagai  22 Sep 2007
These are precious. Great job capturing faith as seen through the eyes of children.
dub W 22 Sep 2007
Beautiful; loved the line, "....didn't need (the) ...car to get to heaven." I often think kids are our link to heaven.
Douglas Sowers 21 Sep 2007
You brought out the kids faith wonderfully.
Jan Ackerson  21 Sep 2007
Oh, priceless! I wish I had been a writer when my little ones were little! So much lost forever, because it never occured to me to write it. Your children are just precious.
Pat Guy  21 Sep 2007
Wonderful slices of life Kristen! LOVED the alien one and the Fear Not one. Actually, I enjoyed them all. Well done!
