What’s better than watching fireflies on a warm summer night? Making our own light with flashlights, of course! We might not always have flashlights to shine in the darkness, but when we have faith in God, that faith can shine just as bright and affect everyone around us!

Not sure? Just check out these five amazing stories of kids in the Bible who had faith that changed everything! God did amazing things with their faith—even the grown-ups around were changed! Jesus said that kids’ faith is an example to grown-ups. Why is that? There are lots of reasons, and we’ll explore them together in this Bible adventure!
