Sampling Jerusalem Journey

It's time for #sampleSaturday and the virtual ebook fair again--a three day event this time, and I suspect I'm arriving late, but I'll blame jet lag for my tardiness. If you click on the picture above it will take you straight to the facebook page with authors, readers, and ebooks galore for your weekend reading pleasure.

A Boy and His Donkey There was once a little boy called Simon who had a little donkey called Joe. Simon’s father kept the stables near the gates of Jerusalem.

The Boy with the Loaves and Fishes Once there was a boy called Thaddeus whose father was a fisherman. Every day Thaddeus’ father went out on his boat to catch fish. Then Thaddeus would eat fish for breakfast, fish for lunch, fish for dinner, and even dried fish for his snacks.

I'm working on some New Testament stories to add to the series, so here's your exclusive look at a story from Nazareth Neighbors, set in Nazareth during the childhood of Christ. The Lost Coin When Jesus was small he liked to help his mother Mary around the house. He shook out his sleeping mat all on his own and rolled it up for her as the day began. He carried water from the river in his own little bucket. He cleaned the empty jars and boxes in the store room. And sometimes, just occasionally, when his Mom was in a very good mood, he even stomped the grapes to mak

Coming soon to the Five Minute Bible Stories Series (TM)

Mary Has a Baby Boy When Baby Jesus was born in a manger, his mother and father had nowhere to stay so they lived in a stable with him. Joseph made a door across the entrance to keep out the wind, but the cave was still cold. Joseph’s family gave Mary and her baby woolen shawls to wrap themselves in. And Mary cuddled her child, peeking under the covers to smell warm milk and honey.
