Gold Fish and Silver Kisses is a heartwarming and ingenious collection of 101 five-minute children's sermons/devotionals. Each sermon includes a title, Bible verse, theme, and prayer, and is illustrated with a small token. For example, "A Kiss for Silver" uses Hershey's Kisses, and "De-Bark" (the Zacchaeus story) suggests giving pieces of bark from a sycamore tree. Other suggestions are given in that lesson for those who don't live around sycamore trees. "It's Easy to Burst A Bubble" has the theme: Words are one of the most powerful forces in the world. It goes on to teach that hurtful words can "burst someone's bubble." The presenter is encouraged to blow bubbles with Bubble-stuff and have the children see how easy it is to pop them. The parable of the four soils is taught in "A Dirty Story" and its theme, plant yourself in God's love and care, is perfect for giving each child some seeds to plant. Each sermon has an alternative devotional ending without the use of tokens so that the lessons can be used at home, in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Christian schools, chapel, and Christian camps. The first edition of this book is even being used in nursing homes because if its unique way of appealing to children as young as 2 and adults as old as 102.
