This is realistic, everyday life fiction, but each chapter teaches a moral founded upon a KJV Scripture to help children to understand righteousness. All the chapters together can cover one theme topic like “aspects of friendship” or “aspects of hard work.”
Story Theme: Aspects of Friendship
Chapter 1: Bear One Another's Burdens
Chapter 2: A Three-Fold Cord is Not Easily Broken
Chapter 3: Weep With Those Who Weep
Each chapter has a lesson that builds upon the theme by using the main character's personal actions or experiences. The story may also have one protagonist experiencing a new lesson or the protagonist may switch in each chapter (e.g., each sibling learns a lesson.)
Devotional realistic fiction stories are excellent devotionals for children. Many adults read devotionals, children can also read them through an applied adventure. If you write a DRF, the stories must be scripturally accurate supporting God's intended plan for family, honoring thy mother and father, modest, godly living, and building a love of scriptural application that helps children to avoid temptation and apply the armor of God .
