A ten-year old, under the tutelage of her grandmother, was becoming quite knowledgeable about the Bible.  

Then, one day, she floored her grandmother by asking, "Which Virgin was the mother of Jesus? The Virgin Mary or the King James Virgin?"




3-year-old Reese: "Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen."




It was Palm Sunday and because of a sore throat, five-year-old Johnny stayed home from church with a sitter.  When the family returned home, they were carrying several palm branches.  The boy asked what they were for.  “People held them over Jesus’ head as he walked by.”

“Wouldn’t you know it,” the boy fumed.  “The one Sunday I don’t go, he shows up!”




The Sunday school teacher asked, “Now, Susie, tell me.  Do you say prayers before eating?”

“No sir,” she replied.  “We don’t have to.  My mom is a good cook!”




I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer for several evenings at bedtime.  She would repeat after me the lines from the prayer.  Finally, she decided to go solo.  I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer:

"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us from E-mail.




Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud.  Finally, his big sister had had enough.

"You're not supposed to talk out loud in church."

"Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.

Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door?  They're hushers."



“Oh, Grandma, I sure am happy to see you,” the little boy said to his grandmother on his mother’s side.  “Now maybe daddy will do that trick he has been promising us.”

The grandmother was curious.  “What trick is that?” she asked.

“I heard him tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit,” the little boy answered.



When my three-year-old son opened the birthday gift from his grandmother, he discovered a water piston.  He squealed with delight and headed for the nearest sink.

I was not so pleased.  I turned to Mom and said, “I’m surprised at you.  Don’t you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water guns?”

Mom smiled and then replied, “Oh, yes… I remember!”




A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3.  The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.

Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.  "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.”

Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"




A little boy in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed around the offering plates.

When they came near his pew, the boy said loudly, “Don’t pay for me, Daddy.  I’m under five.”




A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.

"Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.

"He died and went to Heaven," the Dad replied.

The boy thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?"




A wife invited some people to dinner.  At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?"

"I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied.

"Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"
