Here’s what we need:

1) Devotions–include Bible reference. (See guidelines for Kids below.) These post on Mondays.

4) Hey, Kids–We’d love fun stories or articles about kids, jobs, saving money, etc. that will inspire children. Check out articles already published in this category for other ideas. These post on the second Friday of the month.

5) National Parks/Monuments–Have you visited one of our national parks with your family? We’d love articles about fun nature vacation spots–along with 3-4 photos! If you are inspired by the beauty/history of a particular national park–even if you haven’t been there–we’d love to hear from you. These articles post on the third Friday of the month.

6) Adventures in History–Do you love American history as much as I do? Have you discovered an unusual fact about our history? Do you live a few miles from where historic events happened? We’d love to read your articles. These articles post on the fourth Friday of the month.

Do you have a business?  We want to know and we’d love a photo.

Spending and Saving: Let’s hear how you use your money.

Nature

We love non-fiction nature or animal stories.

National Parks

Did your family go to a national park on vacation? Tell us about it. If you took photos of the park, include 3-4 of them as an attachment on your email.
