Welcome to Grandma's Big House!
We are enlarging the house! Exciting news! Missionary Carole Sydnor has arranged for Grandma, Tell Me a Story to be published in the country of Nepal. It will be published in the Nepali language with adaptations for their culture.
Another enlargement! Around the end of May, Rev. Suzi Harriff will take some of the books to Rwanda. They will not be translated there, but will use the English version.
I am so grateful to those who have worked to make these exciting developments come to pass. Thank you, Carol and Suzi ! I'm sure the Lord is pleased with what we are doing together.
Grandma, Tell Me a Story
is a collection of 52 Bible stories for children. Click here for Table of Contents. The stories are brought into the world of contemporary children by a Grandma who tells a Bible story to her grandchildren, Joey and Amy, each time they come to visit at her big house. Joey, who is eight years old, and Amy, who is six, often express their feelings about the events in the stories and ask questions. Grandma’s answers provide additional interesting facts about life in Bible times or about what the story means. Great effort has been made to keep the language at a level understandable to children. Click here for a sample story.
Children are encouraged to spend more time with each story by the coloring picture included with each one. Parents or teachers reading the stories to a group of children may photocopy the full-page coloring pictures for use with the children. A puzzle or quiz related to several of the stories may be found on this website (Puzzle or Quiz for Children). More puzzles to come soon. Find endorsements and ordering information by clicking here.

A FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE OF THE AUTHOR:
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
