        1. Hi everyone, if anyone can help me. When do the podcasts come on. Please pray for my mom she is pregnant. And she has been very sick. #newsister

          1. Praying! I have experienced your situation 4 times, and It is not too bad after the birth! It will be different, for sure, but having a little bro or sis can be a joy!

      1. Yes, I do have a dog and his name is Buddy! He is a Rat Terrier Chihuahua mix. Do you have a dog?

  1. Am I First!?! I think I might be FIRST for the FIRST time ever! Yay! Then again I am about 96% sure that I am NOT first.

    1. Sorry! 😭😢 Not first. I’ve never been first ever…😢 I’m very sad that everyone always beats me!!!!!!!

      1. It’s okay. At least I made the top 10! It is too bad that we can’t see comments until we have commented too. Then it would be easier to know if we’re first or not. Maybe you will get first next time 👧❤🐶.

    2. I made the top 10! This is my first time making the top 10 or even getting close at all to being first.

  2. Hi! I have been listening to AIO for years! I have several younger siblings and we have all just recently been placed in foster homes. I have 2 of my siblings with me and my other 4 siblings were placed somewhere else. My parents were divorced recently and I’m not sure what to do now!!


    1. I’m so sorry that’s terrible!! I will pray for you and your family I hope things get better for you

  3. My foster parents are nice but they have biological children and I’m not sure that they really wanted us. I feel so lonely and so sad. My other siblings are allowed to contact me and my other sibling with me doesn’t understand either!

    I’m not sure that I want to follow God if it just means more heartbreak! What do I do?

      1. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39
        If you trust in Christ, you will be comforted and be alright.

    1. Stay strong. My favorite verse is Romans 8:28. That verse has helped me a lot. I have never been in your situation, but I do KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that GOD IS GOOD. Also, whenever you feel like you need attention and love, Turn to Jesus. I know you have heard this before but, please pray. Even if nobody else around sees you, he knows TBC

    2. You may feel like nobody loves you, but HE DOES! REALLY! HE DOES! He sees you, and cares for you and wants what’s best for you! (BTW PLEASE listen to “As Buck Would Have it!”) Blessings and Many prayers,

      Natalie/Sister in Jesus

    3. Awww I’m so sorry ur in this predicament😭…my suggestion would be to stay in touch with ur siblings,(u said u r so that’s good) pray about what to do and for understanding, read ur bible,…and remember that there is always someone who cares about u and is there for u and will NEVER leave u…God loves u so much!!!❤️ And he’s taking care of u even tho it might not feel like it❤️…Praying for u!!!🙏💜

    4. First of all, I’m praying for you. I know this has to be really hard. Because of my dad’s job, I have to move very often. Sometimes it’s only a year in one place. Sometimes it’s longer though. And it’s really hard to make friends (and keep them). Anyway, I get the lonely and and sad part. I’ve wondered myself if it’s worth following God,

    5. Our gracious God can help us with our problems if believe and trust in him


    6. Because it is hard. But, here’s the thing. People will let you down. People will break your trust. People will reject you. But God will always ALWAYS be there for you. He is such a comfort to me in hard times, and I know he will be just as much as a comfort to you, if youve excepted him into your heart and life.

    7. All you need to do is ask him into your heart, (if you haven’t already) and then when you’re feeling sad, just go to him, and tell him everything. It’s always a comfort to me, and I’m sure it will be for you too. One of my favorite verses is Matthew 11:28 – 30. It says,

    8. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

      I am only a human (and just a kid too) and I don’t have all the answers. But God does!


    9. He loves you so much! You know what he did. He died for you. You can’t discard that kind of love! You won’t find that exceptance in anyone else. Only Jesus can truly comfort you. Only he can really always be there for you.
      God gave us feeling, but he didn’t give us feeling to control us, or run us. He gave as them as a gift.

    10. Here’s the thing, feeling aren’t always accurate! If you go off feelings life will be a mess. Because feelings aren’t sovereign. They aren’t loving. They don’t have a plan for you/your life. Only God does. If you let your feelings guide you, your life may be easier in some ways but you won’t have joy. Without the Jesus your life will be empty.

    11. I’m a human. I don’t have any answers for you, but God does. He has answers and a plan. And once again, he loves you. Please, please, please, don’t leave him! Your life will be awful without him! Please, let him rule your heart and life, and then, no matter your circumstance, you will always have true joy, deep down, along with a purpose.


    12. Once again, I will be praying for you, and your family. Remember, lean on Christ! He wants you in his eternal family. He loves you so, so much. Don’t ever turn from him. Please!!! It’s so awful when you do. Believe me I know. When you turn from God and live for yourself, you will cease to feel a purpose in life, and you’ll be so miserable. Praying!

    13. Hi there. I’m very sorry to hear about what you are going through. My own mother was in foster care twice as a child. She had a very, very difficult childhood altogether. But now, she is able to look back and see God’s hand, she is also able to comfort others in the same situation with the comfort she was given. Check out 2 Corinthians 1:4.


    14. Also remember, Jesus was left alone by everyone (including people who had said they loved him), he was rejected by people, he was separated from the ones he loved as well. He has endured your same afflictions, take it to Him.


    15. Sin brings hurt into our world, Jesus came to experience our pain and relate to us, so He can comfort us with complete understanding of how it feels. Look at Hebrews 4:15-16.
      He can give you joy and peace through this sad time, give it all over to Him. I will be praying for and checking on you. And for what it’s worth, i do care about you as well.

    16. Hey so I’m a random person and I haven’t been in a situation like that ever, but like everyone, I’ve delt with pain.Honestly, God sees you and loves you no matter where you are.The worst thing you can do right now is push Him away and the best thing is grow closer to Him.This is part of what faith is for. I hope that helps, I’ll be praying for you.

    17. I am so sorry what do I do I will be praying for you 🙂🙃!! GOD LOVES YOU SO SO MUCH

    18. I’m so sorry. That’s not a great situation. Always know that God loves you so so SO much. I will be praying for you.

    19. I will be praying for you and your siblings and just remember that God loves you more than anybody you’ll ever know. May God help you through these hard times. I know that it would be hard to be in your situation. Again, I am praying for you.

    20. Also if you get encouragement from music, i know this sounds corny, but there’s a song called Joy in the Morning by Tauren Wells telling you to not give up Faith, you could listen to it maybe and God might help you cope through it.

    21. Hang In there make friends and try to connect though what I’m saying is a shot in the dark. nothing will be worth abandoning your faith.
      He will wipe away every tear.

  4. It’s actually not the first aio comic strip I made some of my own odyssey comics based off of aloha oy

  5. Moderators-when they say “step away from the microphones” does that mean that they won’t be coming out with regular episodes?

    1. 🤣 Agreed! And if that’s Jason behind him, I think his hair should be a bit darker. I love the drawing style, though!

  6. @What Do I Do

    I am praying for you!!!!!!!
    Don’t turn away from God, He can fill your loneliness if you ask Him. God always has a purpose behind everything!

  7. I got 11th!!ya!!!
    Yes!! If they brought Mitch Back that would be awesome!!
    And ‘what do i do” pray! My friend is in a pretty similar spot right now.if you need prayers we have a prayer page and I’d love to be your friend if you need one!

    1. Yes, that movie is really good! Which song is your favorite? I love “A Million Dreams,” “Never Enough,” and “Rewrite the Stars.”

  8. Hey!
    InChristAlone, have you ever heard the hymn in Christ alone? It is my favorite hymn, l ❤️ it So much.
    One of the guys in my church, has a shirt with it on it.

  9. @Hulvey
    Hey! What’s up? You asked me if I’ve ever heard We Against The World…no I haven’t. YOU’RE GOING INTO THE 9th GRADE!!!!!! SO AM I!!!!
    Tell me about yourself and then I’ll tell you some stuff about me. You don’t have to if you don’t want to.

    1. Great! We’ve gone paddlebaording already and I gonna go to church camp so I’m pretty exited!

  10. Oh my goodness what do I do! I’m so sorry! First praying. Second just trust that this is in Gods plan for you and your siblings! Even though it may get rough at times just lean on Him he will take care of you! Also a really good book for learning about trusting God in the hard times is The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom . NEVER ALONE!!!

  11. Guys could you please pray for my friend.
