Queen Esther

Esther was a very pretty girl and she was very nice. She was taken to the kings castle. The king was wanting to get a new queen. And he picked Esther to be queen. She was so happy.
There was a mean guy his name was Haman. Haman wanted to kill all of the Jews. And Esther was a Jew. Esther invited Haman and the king to eat dinner. When they were at dinner she told them that she was a Jew. The queen also told KingXerxes about Hamans plan to kill her people. Haman did not belive her and said that she just wanted to save all the people. The king left and Haman was about to hurt Esther but all of a sudden the king jumped out of nowhere and saved Esther. Then the king let her people be saved because he loved her. They lived happily ever after.

The story of Esther is found in the old testament of the Bible. There is also a very good movie about this story called, One Night With The King. This is one of my favorite movies!

The Story of Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus was a tax collector. He cheated people. He was short but he was very tricky. (This story comes from Luke 19:1-10) Nobody liked Zacchaeus. One day a crowd came by and Jesus was there. Zacchaeus was too short. He said a few people wont keep me from seeing Jesus. So he climbed up in a tree. Then Jesus came by and he said Zacchaeus you come out of that tree. He said to Zacchaeus I'm going too your house today. Zacchaeus zoomed out of that tree he said to Jesus if I have cheated someone I'm going to pay them back all their money and I'm going to give half of my money to the poor.

Zacchaeus loved Jesus alot.
