Rachel, 11, lives in Edmonton, Alta., and describes herself as “artsy and creative.” But more important, she said, “I love Jesus very much.”
They originally came across the audio drama on the radio but now access all the episodes on kidscorner.net.
“I like that the characters are always getting into ridiculous situations, like when Liz thought Granny’s tractor was a UFO,” said Rachel.
“My favorite characters are Julia and Lucille because they are nice and always try to do the right thing.”
Using lizard-like characters from the town of Terrene, the Kids Corner adventures present a Christ-focused message to kids and their families.
The entertaining stories teach the wisdom and truth of God through issues and challenges that affect a child’s life. The goal is to help children, especially ages 6-12, develop an interest in the Bible and become lifelong followers of Jesus.
“Rachel and Noah enjoy Kids Corner very much,” commented Rachel’s mother, Rebekah.
“They love listening to audio stories and theatre so we were excited to find your website. We enjoy spending time together learning about God and how to walk with him. These stories teach good lessons and biblical values, and open up great discussion.”
Rachel was so inspired by the program she submitted a story idea to Kids Corner producer Ron VandenBurg. He was especially touched by Rachel’s concern for one of the Kids Corner characters, Chamy, who has not yet given her life to Christ. “I have friends who aren’t Christians,” Rachel explained.
Rebekah added, “As parents who are striving to provide good quality stories and teaching for our children, we thank you for making these stories.”
