New Christian Short Story Collection Available for Youth

A new anthology encourages young readers to live for God. Entitled Growing Faith: Stories with a Message for Today’s Youth, the book is a unique collection of stories aimed at readers nine and up.

Compiled and edited by Cheryl Rogers, publisher of New Christian Books Online Magazine, Growing Faith teaches the importance of love and obedience, shows how to surrender your life to God, and shares what it’s like to walk in the gifting and calling of the Holy Spirit.

“It is my hope and prayer that this collection will lead many young people closer to God,” Rogers says.

Growing Faith, now available as an ebook through Amazon, retails for $2.99.

Contributing to the collection are:

 * Edith Edremoda, author of Run with Me, a tale about a young girl and boy that like to race home from school together – until he learns he has a hole in his heart.

* David C. Russell, author of Good Days, Restful Nights, about a couple of middle schoolers who learn shoplifting is a bad idea. This story features familiar characters from his book Winds of Change, including Seth Scott and Mr. and Mrs. Dudley.

* Kim Leatherman, author of Pizza and a Cross, the story of a young girl who feels unloved and wanted – until she learns about Jesus.

The collection also contains three short stories by Rogers, including Visit with God, the story about a girl who visits father God in heaven during a dream; Zack and the Space Coast Caper,  a book about Zack and his friends from Rogers’ ebooks Lost in the Woods: A Bible Camp Mystery, Alone in the Woods: A Bible Camp Mystery, and Where’s Zack? A Reading Quest; and Holy Ghost Stories, a tale featuring Barry from her ebook Just Like Jonah Wail Tales and the parent/teacher guide Just Like Jonah Wail Tales Workbook.

New Christian Books Online Magazine is a free online publication about the latest kingdom-building books for readers of all ages. 


  1. I wish younger kids would read these types of books to learn about God and what Faith really stands for.

  2. I believe that we need lots of great stories of faith for our children. It helps to teach them Christian principles in a way that they don't always know they are learning.

  3. this would be great for my kids they would enjoy this and this would be a great gift for any child to get denise smith

  4. Thank you for sticking to the truth and teach our Children what's really important in life!

  6. This is something that is dear to my heart. My children are getting older(2 are now adults) There is an unbelievable amount of peer pressure in high school about religion :/ This is definitely a book i would love my 3 younger sons to read to help them grow and be strong in their/our faith

  7. Looks like a great book for my teen girls! With all the junk out there right now, it's nice to have good choices like this. Thanks!
