Ages 7-10: Story of Courageous Clara

Clara loved drawing, but she often felt shy about showing her artwork to others. One day, she decided to create a special art corner in her room. She decorated it with her drawings and paintings, feeling proud of her work. Clara invited her family to see her art gallery. Their smiles and praise made her heart swell with joy. From then on, Clara proudly shared her art with friends and even entered a school drawing contest. Her confidence grew as she discovered that sharing what she loved brought happiness to others.

Ben loved writing stories but doubted if they were good enough to share. He decided to start a journal to jot down his thoughts and ideas. Every evening, he wrote about his day and crafted imaginative tales. One day, Ben challenged himself to share a story with his classmates during a virtual school project. He felt nervous but excited. To his surprise, his classmates loved his story and asked for more. Encouraged by their positive feedback, Ben began sharing his stories online. His confidence in his writing skills grew, and he discovered a passion for storytelling that inspired others.

Standing on stage, she began to play and sing. With each chord and lyric, Rachel felt more confident. The audience cheered and applauded her performance. Rachel realized that facing her fear had made her stronger and more brave.
