Faith-Boosters As the shouts from above came closer; the bear stopped long enough to raise its head and sniff. It was ten feet from the boat now. Stanley could see its beady eyes and hear its deep; guttural grunts as it fought for breath. What should he do? Stanley’s eyes darted desperately from the bear to the timberline and back to the bear. “Dear Jesus;” he prayed; his heart pounding; “make Dad come; please!” The twenty-five stories in this collection will encourage you and strengthen your faith. You’ll meet Curtis; who foolishly ventures out in a freezing; blinding blizzard. And then there’s Joe; who breaks into rich Mrs. Gambol’s house to steal money for some badly needed new clothes. And we can’t forget Peggy; the faithful German shepherd; whose trust and loyalty were answers to Gene and Denny’s prayers. As you read and retell these stories to family; friends; and anyone who needs a faith-boost; you’ll find your faith will be strengthened too.
