I love this allegory. It took the children to understand and to make it to the King's Land. Skillfully written and I enjoyed the descriptions and conversations.

I completely adored this! I'm a big fan of John Bunyan style stories, and this one is told beautifully. The story flowed like a graceful, refreshing stream, and the Challenge topic was revealed naturally and creatively throughout. Very original! This is definitely one of my favorites this week. Hope it ranks at the top!

Loved this pilgrim's progess and the inspiring poems interpersed throughout the piece.

This was a very creative, well written approach to the topic; and certainly among the best.

Oh wow. This is awesome. What a great parallel. I love the fairy tale feel with the deeper meaning.

This is a most beautiful allegory, as others have said, a Pilgrim's Progress-type parable. Just lovely to read and with great lessons. Thankyou

Excellent work! I was intrigued from the beginning to the end. One of my favorite lines in your story was "she bubbled with renewed hope!" How descriptive. Nicely done!
This is perfect. I could see it so easily as a picture book. I enjoyed the take on the Wizard of OZ. It's one of my favorite stories this week and leaves me with a sense of hope. I really loved this.

Congrats on your Editor's Choice!!! So glad this placed. :) You did a phenomenal job on this piece!
I am more of a reader than writer - and just had to say that this story sticks... I think of it often... especially of 'His Land' when I'm 'Little Faith'. So many blessings from this!! Praise to Jesus through you!

Thanks, Colleen. That means a lot to have someone say my story "sticks." I call that resonance - that you can hear it still ringing later on.
So true! I am a piano teacher and so agree with you: Yes, Resonance... of which God's 'Spoken Living' Word is the *best* example :)
