I received an email from a reader back in 2015 who had a great idea for using my cartoons. I had intended to share it on my blog, and then didn’t get around to it, until now. The email was from Timothy Sliekers, a fourth grade teacher at a private school in Illinois. The school curriculum required the students to learn several memory verses throughout the year. He intended to use my cartoons in a project to help his class with memorizing the Bible verses. The project was to have his students create their own cartoons, based on that week’s memory verse, in the style of Joyful ‘toons. I’m sure their cartoons were a great help in memorizing the verses. He shared some of their cartoons with me, and now, though long overdue, I am sharing them with you. I would give all of them an ‘A’. If anyone else wants to use this idea for their own teaching assignment, please feel free to do so.

Just as an eye needs a hand to apply eye drops, we need each other to minister to our needs.
An egg hunt is an Easter tradition in many parts of the world. Brightly colored eggs are hidden where children can find them, and put them in their baskets. Similarly, if we look for Jesus, we will find him.
Planning for the future is wise, but do not forget to include God in your plans, and make Him your top priority.
Most religions are about man trying to get to God, that somehow through his own efforts man might be elevated to where God is. But God knew that we could never get to Him on our own, so He came down to us, in the person of Jesus.
This cartoon depicts the American tradition of Thanksgiving Day. As Christians, we should be thankful everyday for all of God’s blessings.
Giving money to the Lord is good and proper, but what God really wants us to give is ourselves.
We should be quick to forgive, knowing that we also need forgiveness.
Sin may appear attractive, but it’s a deceit, and it will leave you cold and hardened. We are all subject to it’s lure at one time or another, but with the encouragement of our brothers and sisters in Christ, we can resist it.
