This is one of my most stolen stories. It was first published in Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul. Since then, it's been resold to a missionary, to an Israel school, and to a school in China, teaching English. I think you will enjoy this heart-felt short-short story, based on a true happening. Please leave a review and rating!

    I've always loved this story. It's got that down-home, country spirit and lots of heart and soul. Very funny, especially when you are getting ready for church, but also leaves you with a good feeling for the good old-time preacher.

    Love the humor and the philosophy of the 60's grandma, her modern son, and the young granddaughter who is bridging the gap between them. A fast, fun read!
