This is a great illustration of "God's Word not returning void". Your story is well-written and I love the ending. Nice writing!
As a former English teacher, I loved your hint! I like the way you tied the ending back to the setting in the 1st paragraph. The dialogue was well done, with the Grammy's thoughts in between.
Great job! The way you worked in Laura's thoughts was great--it added a lot to the story. Children are naturals--we can learn much from them!
What a great entry! Love the title. This little boy really is a champion. I like how you wove scripture throughout. Thank you for sharing!
Oh, this is so heartwarming! I love the little Oliver character: he's so precious and REAL. The voices of your characters are marvelous, too.
Really great story. Warms a Sunday School teacher's heart. Great characterization. Thanks
Oh, this got a goose bump or two and a tear out of me! Very well written and moving story. And of COURSE I like Grammy's name. :)
A very nice detail--the little squirrel who makes an appearance in both the first and last paragraphs. That's the sort of touch that distinguishes fine writing.
This gave me goosebumps-a bittersweet story. I liked the struggle between Grammy and learning the verses. This was just great. The ending was the best though-love that last sentence. ^_^
The story is well written and draws the reader right in to witness the struggle taking place. Children are wonderful heart-catchers and your Oliver is a fine example. The message is a gentle touch with a good push.
Congratulations on the EC!
Age is not a factor in evangelism, as you so proficiently have shown...
Very nicely told. "And a little child shall lead them." If it hadn't been for the little child leading his granny to the Lord, she may have never been able to join her husband. A very touching story, and bringing in every day things like dry leaves and squirrels, made it so down to earth. He was a real little evangelist....Helen
Congrats on the placing. It was well-deserved. I knew you would come up with a very unique and creative way to illustrate evangelism. Beautiful writing. It was immediately interesting and kept my interest the whole time! How's that for someone who is easily distracted?! :)I agree that Oliver and Laura really had character from the beginning. I could hear, see, and feel the whole story as if it had really taken place in my memory! Maybe someday, it will! With God, all things are possible!
