The New Adventures of Matt & Mandy

Guess what! Mom says I can come to your family home evening.

Cool! My mom said to tell you your parents are invited too.

I think Mom might like to come. But my dad doesn’t live with us. … They’re divorced.

Oh. Sorry.

That’s OK. You didn’t know.

Do you miss him?

Yeah. I wish he and Mom still loved each other. I mean … I know they both love me, but …

I know somebody else who loves you—even more than you can imagine. And He can help you feel better when you’re sad.


You’ll find out on Monday night.

Good news! Audrey can come Monday night. And probably her mom. I’ve got a great lesson idea. Can you help me with it?

To be continued …
