These Gospel adaptations started as a join-the-dots exercise. I wanted to write something that included gritted teeth, morning sickness, and what Mary was thinking about when she wasn’t singing the Magnificat. I would love you to use my stories or sketches for your home group, church, youth camp, conference or fund-raiser. They are written to be read aloud but are intended to be flexible.
