Rebekah Hides In a Pile!

Too Old to be Spanked?

Our parents were having trouble getting us all to bed at a reasonable hour so they made a rule that everyone had to be in bed by 9:00! No excuses would be accepted. All violators would be spanked! Well, Steven was thirteen years old at the time, the oldest child and quite certain that he […]

Rebekah had gone down to feed the chickens, and she was wearing her favorite ring.  It had a little pearl in the middle – not a real pearl, but that didn’t matter to Rebekah.  One of the chickens really liked this ring, and always pecked at it.  Rebekah didn’t mind, she actually kind of enjoyed […]
