Ages 8-12 Years

Imagination Checkers. It's like playing checkers... only better!

Poppy made up the rules and they are simple. Pick a character. Dress the part. Make a move on the checkerboard. Then do something the made-up character would do. Like the time Cricket and Poppy pretended to be the only surviving humans during a zombie apocalypse and used Grammy's air freshener as zombie spray. Or that time they dressed up as astronauts and pretended to drive a rocket.

Everyday is a new Imagination Checkers adventure; until Poppy ends up in the hospital.

After weeks of visits and no improvement, Cricket's hope begins to fade. Until she meets Kyle... a boy diagnosed with cancer who lives on the fifth floor. Best friends from the start, Cricket teaches Kyle how to play Imagination Checkers and the whole fifth floor is entertained by their regular shenanigans. Frog hops, ninja battles, and pillow fights are just a few of the adventures they create.

Join these imaginative characters and fall in love with Poppy and Cricket's favorite game... Imagination Checkers!

Learning As I Go: Big Lessons from Little People

(Adult Devotional)

Simple snippets of time when we are engaged mindlessly with our children seem insignificant. But are they, really?

Washing clothes, playing on the playground, and driving youngsters to school are all mundane parts of being a parent, but these unassuming moments are often the places God shows up the most-and with the biggest, longest-lasting impressions. Teaching your child how to ride a bike suddenly becomes a class about fear and letting go. A broken train track and a sobbing child create the perfect equation for a lesson on trusting God with all of our broken places. Questions about the abandoned slide on the playground turn into a quest to reawaken lost dreams and passions from years ago. And a simple trip to the grocery store might teach all about perspectives and heart changes.

It's in these everyday moments that we experience the little winks and nudges from our Heavenly Father. These timeless lessons and deep spiritual truths burn an impression on our hearts that can only be divine. God not only blesses us with our children, but He uses them in our lives to teach us how to become more like Him. (Published by WordCrafts Press)
