Hearts Afire: A Child’s Life of Christ by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

Posted by Julie on October 6, 2017 in encouragement, God's Word, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

A Child’s Life of Christ: HEARTS AFIRE

Storybook #3 in Series THEY MET JESUS

 

 

In storybook 3, Hearts Afire, your children will meet….

 

*Zebedee where they learn to share with their friends, including their time.

*Simon the Zealot where they learn to try to make friends with someone no one likes.

*Hurt Minds where they learn to take a smile, a flower, a cookie to someone who is sad.

*Lepers where they learn not to take their health and other good things for granted.

*Paralyzed Man where they learn to draw a picture to give someone who is paralyzed.

*Matthew where they learn to befriend someone no one likes.

*Judas where they learn to go to church, not for the cookies and prizes, but because they love Jesus.

*Pharisees where they learn God will forgive them of even the worst thing they ever did.

*Twelve Apostles where they are encouraged to go to church if they have never been.

*Widow’s Son where they learn to draw a picture to take to someone who is very sick.

 

Here is a sample from one of the chapters:

 

 

6 ~ MATTHEW

 

People didn’t like Matthew. He was a tax collector. People know taxes must be paid to pay for road building and sewers and schools and such like. Nothing is free.  People had to pay for it in their taxes.

 

But people don’t like to pay taxes for things they don’t think the government should pay for.

 

The government let Matthew keep whatever tax money they didn’t need. So he doubled their taxes. He got rich that way. People resented Matthew. He was not popular.

 

One day Matthew went to hear John the Baptist preach. John told people there was going to be a new kingdom of God soon, and they needed to be ready to be included in it.

 

John kept baptizing unpopular people who wanted to be part of that kingdom of God, and the goody-goody people didn’t like it.

Here is part of a sample chapter.

 

8 ~ THE STRANGE WOMAN

 

We sometimes decide people are strange when they really are not. We may decide this because someone’s skin or hair color is different, or they talk different, or they’re very tall or short, or have habits we’re not used to seeing.

 

Istar lived in a part of Palestine that so-called good Jews did not go to. The Jews would not even talk to those people because they were different in their customs.

 

But Jesus loved everyone and wanted to give everyone a chance to find out about God’s love.

 

Istar and her family and friends worshipped idols. An idol is like a doll or statue that people bow down to and call a god. They are not really.

 

“I have talked all day and I’m tired now,” Jesus said while traveling through Samaria. So, he sat down by a well to rest.

 

Istar came to the well to draw water. Jesus didn’t act like he thought he was better than her. He talked to everyone, even if they did look, act or talk different than him. So, he asked her for a drink of water….

A Child’s Life of Christ by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

A Child’s Life of Christ: STAR SONG

Storybook #1 in Series THEY MET JESUS

 

 

It is September and time to think about school. If you home school your children, this series would be perfect for you. If you are a grandmother, you could keep a set in your home for when the young ones come to spend the night.

These story books have the same covers as the grown-up books. The type is much larger and more lively. Each chapter has a good work suggestion for the child.

Book 1 is entirely the Christmas story with Mary Joseph, the shepherds, the wise men, and everyone else. Here is a sample from chapter one.

1 ~ MARY

 

Mary was a teenager who loved little children just like you, and grownups just like those who live in your home. She also loved God.

 

People didn’t have refrigerators back then. So, every morning Mary walked to the market to buy groceries so she could help her mother fix meals for the family.

 

But sometimes when she did, she saw people walking with canes because their legs hurt, or people coughing because they had a cold.

 

Sometimes she saw children fighting each other or grownups arguing.

 

Sometimes she saw foreign soldiers who controlled her country. They wore weapons at their side. Sometimes they took people to jail and made them very sad.

 

It bothered Mary that bad things sometimes happened to people. But she knew she couldn’t do anything about it because she was too young.

 

So Mary prayed that God would do something about it. God made the world and all little children and grownups. He loved everyone, so he could help.

 

One day when Mary was alone, an angel suddenly appeared to her. His name was Gabriel. Can you say Gabriel? He was smiling.

 

Gabriel had wonderful news for her. She was going to have a baby ~ God’s own Son whom he was sending to live with us. Then God’s Son could help us.

 

Mary was to name this baby JESUS. He would start a new kingdom of peace that everyone who wanted to could live in.

 

This kingdom would start on earth. But some day everyone in his kingdom would be taken to heaven to live forever with God himself. Then there would be no more suffering and sadness.

 

 Mary had always thought she was too young to help people. She found out she could help after all through her baby by taking good care of him.

 

 

 

THINK & DO

 

  1. Every boy and girl can help others, no matter how young they are. Is there something you can do today to help someone who is hurting in their mind or their body?

 

You will make them smile. You will make God smile. You, too, will smile.

Come Fly With Me: They Met Jesus by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

Posted by Julie on July 7, 2017 in encouragement, God's Word, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

COME FLY WITH ME

Novel #8 in THEY MET JESUS series

 

 

Oh what delight it was to write this last book in the series. Jesus came back to life in the last half of novel 7 and appeared to the women and Peter and two men on the road. In this last novel Jesus appears several time to his apostles. He spends time with them answering their questions and training them just a little more with the time that is left.

I loved the chapter called “Power Surge”. That is where he appears to 500 followers all at once and greets them all.  The shepherds are now old, one wise man happens to be there when it happens. He greets people he has worked miracles on. Last he greets his family—Mary, his sisters, and his brothers. All but James; they couldn’t convince him to come. All the time James was growing up at Joseph’s oldest son, he had resented Jesus dominating everything. So Jesus appears alone to James back in his home. They talk. James is shocked and all his beliefs shattered. In the end he bows to his brother who was actually the Son of God.

Then Jesus takes his twelve to their old encampment on the Mount of Olives. Everyone is quiet. They know. Somehow they know. He stops. “Don’t go, Jesus.”

Jesus does go, they recover, and ten days later they receive a special gift to instantly speak in foreign languages. They go up on the roof of the old hostel they bought as their headquarters. They preach to the mob that had demanded Jesus’ crucifixion, three on each side. Peter’s sermon is recorded. “Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins.” Three thousand do.

They are confronted by the Sanhedrin which had thought they had won. They beat and imprison the apostles, but the apostles turn right around and show up at the temple to teach again. Shortly five thousand more are baptized. The new church grows like wildfire. A few years later, Stephen is stoned to death by the holy Sanhedrin.  Later, one of their own—James—is beheaded. Persecution grows rampant and Christians scatter, The apostles stick it out.

After nineteen years, Thaddeus announces he is leaving. “Jesus told us to go into all the world. If you’re not going to do it, that’s your choice. I’m leaving.”  Their children have had time to grow up. Now with a few gray hairs, they know it is time for them all to leave. They have one last evening alone together talking about the old days in their youth with their Jesus.

Within the next couple of decades, most of them are tortured to death. All but John. Now in his nineties and exiled to an island, he shuffles along the beach, mostly praying. One day he sees someone shining bright walking up the beach toward him. He knows. He had seen that same glow sixty years earlier on the mountain. It is his Jesus. John is taken on a tour of heaven, a glance into hell, and back to heaven.

Then, guided by his Jesus, he is returned to the little island on earth. Jesus stays only momentarily and begins to back away. As he hovers, then rises higher and higher he calls out to John, “I am coming to get you soon.”

Me too, Jesus? Me too?

Shadow of Death: They Met Jesus by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

Posted by Julie on June 16, 2017 in encouragement, God's Word, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

SHADOW OF DEATH

Novel #7 in THEY MET JESUS series

 

It’s now 6:00 AM and the Temple hierarchy has managed to find liars to testify against Jesus in their middle-of-the-night illegal court.  They can already smell Jesus’ blood. They drag him through the street to Governor Pilot’s palace. Rome controls all executions. Pilate interviews Jesus in private. It doesn’t take Pilate long to realize he is standing before greatness. He decides to save Jesus’ life by having him scourged with iron bits on the tips of the whip. Jesus’ back turns to raw meat.

Barely alive (most people die of scourging), Jesus is presented to the “holy” mob. They still are not satisfied. “Crucify! Crucify!” The death penalty is granted. It takes two chapters in my book to struggle with Jesus on the cross.  This is some of it (which I wrote fifty years ago when I was 17):

The pain. The writhing, seething, shooting pain. How can another moment be like the last? It can’t. But it is.

Uhhhhhh…

On and on, endlessly, each joint screaming, calling out for mercy. Relieve me! Relieve me! But there is no relief.

Uhhhhhh…

Still the pain. The pain that shoots through the body like fire arrows. The pain that tangles up the muscles like fish in a net. The pain that mounts, ebbs, then comes back more horrible than before.

“Aggghhhh.”

“…Oh, my God, my God… Keep me strong. Strong for them.”

“Aggghhhh.”

…On and on, deeper and deeper. Harsh, horrible, hideous, hanging on, never letting go. No relief, no release, no anything but this excruciating pain. Oh the pain…

The spasms. The unrelenting spasms. They’re back. They knot Jesus’ feet and twist them, involuntarily pulling at the rusty stake.

Uhhhaaah!

Jesus, God is nearby. He’s touching your feverish brow and enveloping you in his love. And the angels. They’re preparing for your homecoming. Remember? Remember how it used to be?

The longer Jesus’ weight is carried by the spikes, the more his joints slip out of their proper location. The droning of his pain slips almost secretly from his nerves and little by little sneaks into his bones.

Harder and harder it becomes for Jesus to claim his next breath. Still harder to exhale.

His muscles shattered, his shoulder bones dislocated, part of him dehydrating, part of him bloating.

“Uhhhhcgk.”

The rhythm of indistinct breathing interrupted only by the spasms that gradually creep up his legs.

Ahhhhhhh!

Jesus’ heavy laden heart struggles with his dehydrated broken body to pump thick, heavy, sluggish blood to a resistant, barely living being.

“I…uhhhhcgk…thirst,” he whispers.

One last request. It is time to will himself to die.

Can they refuse? No! Look! Someone has had mercy on you, Son of God! He’s taking a sponge dipped in vinegar, and now…and now…he is offering it to you, thirsty Savior. A drink.

With the weariness of dying, Jesus takes the vinegar and it momentarily helps the nausea.

His tormented swollen heart labors slower and slower.

Gradually and increasingly surrounded by a contemptible, mocking serum, his heart strains even harder as it struggles to pump just a few more drops of blood.

Slower it pumps, and slower…

…Everything is getting so dim, so hazy, so blurry…

Where is everything going?

Around and around. Spinning, spinning, back, farther and farther, faster, faster, faster!

He groans.

“It…uhhhhcgk…is…uhhhhcgk…finished…”

Finished. Your work all completed. Everything as you knew it would be. And now, oh Lamb of God, die! The sacrifice is completed. But for your sins, Son of God? No, of course not. You have none. You’ve been perfect, unselfish one, from your human birth, the whole way. All of this has been for the others.

…Everything is drifting so far away…

So far away…

So far away.

So lonely…

No one here…

So hazy…All alone…

Forsaken…

Desolate…

…Something drawing… something… something drawing you to it. What is it? Where is it coming from?

Look up! But the pain—the cramping relentless pain.

Merciless.

Torturing to the very end.

But look up.

Look up!

Quick!

Don’t you see?

He calls out.

“Father!”

Yes, he’s coming for you!

“Father…uhhhhcgk… I know…uhhhhcgk…you’re there.

My spirit…uhhhhcgk…it’s yours!”

Just a little more now!

Just a little closer…

Jesus’ head lifts up in all the defiance of death. His body jerks and writhes, his knotted muscles strain.

Just a little closer now…

His heart swells…

Trembles…

Bursts.

And with a loud piercing cry that shakes the foundations of the earth, Jesus sends his liberated spirit rushing at last to the outstretched arms of God.

OH, MY SON!  MY SON!

(Later in this volume is his resurrection and appearances to his startled friends.)
