GET VERY FAR AWAY By Anne Marie Kensington
What began with a slap across the face in a single incident, grew in intensity and regularity. Each incident more violent than the last, until Mother and children made a run for it to save their lives…
THE TINIEST TEACHER By Alice Klies
What can a premature infant teach her mother? You’d be surprised!
KISSED BY KAYA By Liz Hufford
Blessings are sometimes disguised as challenges. Small bodies can contain huge spirits. Meet Kaya, a tenacious three-year-old, who has already touched many lives.
THE HUNT By Dianna Beamis Good
Young Dianna goes out hunting with her father, uncle and grandfather for the first time and realizes she wasn’t quite as prepared as she thought she was.
THE GOAT By Joshua Good
A warmhearted story about one person being reminded of God’s love for us through his encounter with a very special goat.  It’s a  view from the inside of a wild fire incident told by the person who went through it, and the amazing way God can speak to us through all different circumstances.
THE TRIKE RIDE By Burton Voss
When the mobility of a red tricycle with a handlebar bell met her imagination, the summer turned enchanted for five-year-old Frances. What could go wrong?
THE HUALPAI By Roy Voss
The time has come for the passing of the torch. Old Herman Cruz limped into the office of Tribal Chief of Police, Ben Grounds, and requests that the former Green Beret make good on a promise—one crafted when Ben was just a child. Now the ex-soldier must accompany Cruz to the sacred and secret burial sites of the old Hualapai Chiefs to make sure they are unmolested. What they didn’t expect was to stumble onto a kidnapping plot that they feel compelled to interrupt.
THE OBIT By Roy Voss
The result of a strange dream that I had that cause me to awaken laughing. It is a story told in the first person about a man finding the obituary of his friend and then reliving a conversation with her. This young woman was born with a defective heart and instead of dying as a child, she lived a full life into her late twenties. She details the reasons for changing her name from Lisa Harmon to Stupid B. Everbodily. Just when I think she could be correct, my wife intervenes and returns my thinking to reality. The strangeness of this story is taken almost word for word from the dream. Perhaps I need medication.
THE UNEXPECTED By Mark Enlow

A LESSON IN TIME By Anne Marie Kensington

GOD, MY HONDA & MY SEAT BELT SAVED MY LIFE By Carol Farris

MAYA AND THE MESSIAH By A.P. Maddox
