    1. Yo! I’m a cheesehead!!!!!! #PackerFan I live so close to the stadium! 🏟️ And yes, I am a Wisconsinite.

      1. Yay I’m in the top twenty or is it top ten I’m in thirteenth place does any one know

        1. Hey 📚🐐 (sorry I couldn’t find all of your emojees )I saw on a lot of your comets you said you were odessey fan but you changed your name you said you could be my friend and what my real name was I don’t think I replied to you right away TBC

        2. CONT. Sorry about that I stopped comenting for awhile and then I started again and then I saw your comment and I replied to you but you didn’t answer btw my real is trudy and I think the page where you commented me was called voice of freedom the second one

  1. “F” was posted by me, standing for first, I just didn’t write my user name, and when you don’t, it automatically puts anonymous.

  2. Great Podcast so grateful God put all these people were they are so we have aio here today.

      1. Probably Star ⭐️ Trek. At least that’s what I watch more. Original Series and Next Generation mostly, and between those two, Original Series more than Next Gen. Hope that helps. Good 👍 luck 🍀 with your school 🏫 project.

  3. Have you guys listened to “The Very Best of Friends”? I just did. I think I cried like three times.

  4. Hi everyone!!!!Has anyone here read “Brave Ollie Possum”? If you have not I would recommend it!!! I love reading books!!! Has anyone here read any books by N. D. Wilson??? N. D. Wilson is excellent writer! Do any of you play sports? I play junior high volleyball!!! It’s really fun! Do you play Football? Basketball? Soccer? Baseball? Something else?

    1. I like reading,but have not heard of those authors, also I dance, but some people don’t consider that a sport.

      1. I love it too!!! Lemony Snicker is such an interesting writer. He’s funny too… in a kinda depressing way. My favorite character is Klaus because he likes to read, just like me. Some other series/books you might like: Graystone Secrets by Margret Peterson Haddix, Masterminds by Gordon korman, 39 clues, Wingfeather saga by Andrew Peterson. Enjoy

        1. I also like “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” I just finished the Netflix series after reading the books. There’s also “All the Wrong Questions” that talks about Snicket’s childhood. I like “The 39 Clues,” “The Wingfeather Saga,” “The Green Ember,” and any other books from Rabbit Room Press (“The 39 Clues” isn’t part of Rabbit Room).

        2. Love the wing feather saga so much!🐺 i’m not done with it yet, but I have a feeling that Kalmar is going to die. 🙁 Did you know that they came out with a real creature Pedia!

    2. I’m interested in volley ball, but I don’t play it. What season of the year do you guys like. I don’t have a favorite. I like fall with the fresh air and color change in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. Summer is fun. Winter is fun because of skiing down Whiteface. Spring, the air is fresh hope comes, flowers, and rain.

        1. Where do you live. I live in upstate New York. Come to think of it I think I likespring and fall the most, mainly because the temperature is perfect and their is a lot of rain because of more frontal activity and Hurricanes.

          1. I live in GEORGIA, and I love it for the weather.also I like spring because that is baby animal time.🐣

    3. If I did a sport, I would do cross-country😁. Does anyone like meteorology? Millie, my sister loves grammar! Thomas Jeffries said he didn’t know anyone who liked grammar.

  5. Hi! Huge recommend listen to the Gray Havens! Their a Christian husband and wife duo and their songs are GREAT if you like narrative folk

    1. Welcome!😁 I live on a small homestead in GA with pigs chickens goats raised beds,(for gardening) and a dog.
      What about you? Are you homeschooled? I also love dance and books.

      1. That sounds fun. I was homeschool until 2nd Grade. Now I go to a private Christian school. I have a dog to!!! Our family also has chickens, ducks, fish, parakeets, and we garden . My sister does some Irish step dancing, and I love books. I’ve a whole stack waiting for me to read. I also like doing puzzles, and climbing trees.

    2. Hi farm girl🚜 do you live on a farm (considering your user name )If you don’t mind me asking no pressure

  6. Hi Sun! I haven’t read N. D. Wilson. Have you read Picatus Lore’s “I Am Number Four” series? It’s amazing. I play high school soccer and compete in trick ice skating. It’s like figure ice skating but less dance and more trick.

      1. To ranger, I am just responses to different questions. Like the last post was to answer sun and titus’s questions. I’ve listen to the last chance deceives, and I’ve also watch their tv series. I listen to pop and hard core rap. My favorite AIO character is Buck, Jewls, and the Rathbones.

  7. @ Sun ☀️
    I also play junior high volleyball!! I love it! I’ve never read the book you mentioned, but my fav author is Jerry B. Jenkins. His books are incredible!!

    1. I have not read them, but they sound really good! Just too much of an easy read for me.

    2. 📘I couldn’t find the red book so posted this emojee instead I’ve only read two of them

  8. Who has listened to the last chance detectives? It is on the aio club 🙂

    I have listened to them all at least five times each 🙃 they are good!

  9. What kind of music do people like to listen to? Who do you listen to or do you like Celtic. Oh! In my other post, I forgot to put pumpkin pie in my fall list!

    1. Mostly worship. Big song recommendation is a version of amazing Grace by a group called five strings. Part of it is in Swahili and I love the lyrics! They are way different than the traditional song in the song is more upbeat. Please let me know if you try it out, and look up the lyrics.

    2. I love Celtic music! I love to listen to Taryn Harbridge. Check her out on YouTube! She is great.

    1. I don’t have a favorite, but I really like Emily Jones and Wooten. I also love the riddles! I know I spelled that wrong. If you like the Riddell‘s, post this.🇯🇵🕵🏻

      1. I like Connie, Euguen, Jules, and Bridget. I like riddles, pranks, and chess😁. Does anyone here like chess. My real name is Joel.

  10. Hi! How is everyone? Has anyone listened to The Hidden Hand. Katie Leigh played Capitola!

    1. Yes!!! I love the Hidden Hand. Have you read the book? It’s amazing! The audio drama takes some of the fun parts out and puts others in, but I still like it. First time a I heard it, I new it was Katie Leigh!

      1. Cool! It’s too bad that you never hear from Richard after he’s forgiven in the hospital. He is a great character.

  11. Anybody here from GA?

    Also, would you rather have to stay in a smelly room and be locked in for 2 days, or in an escape room until you figured how to get out?
    Escape room =😃
    Smelly room =😁

    1. I am from Georgia! I guess it depends on if the escape room was really difficult and if the smelly room was really smelly.👃🕵️‍♀️

      1. The escape room would be medium-easy, and the smelly room would be REALLY smelly.

  12. I like Connie Eugene penny Wooten and Barrett and Olivia Parker
    My name is also Olivia and I’m kinda like her

  13. TRQ, does anybody know they are or their relatives heritage. Example, my grandpa is half Norwegian, half Swedish, my grandma is about 60% English or Irish, but has some other things in her ECT.

    1. my mama’s great grandma is from Germany so that kind of makes me German but here’s the thing I am adopted from a country in Africa and I’m not actually biologically related to any of my family members so…I don’t know if that makes me German or not what do y’all think?

      How’s school going for everyone too? Great for me!

    2. I’m not exactly shure all of my heritage. I know I’m part Scotish, Irish, Italian, a really really really small part African Black all on my mom’s side and German, English, and maybe some Jewish?.

    3. My great great grandpa or is it my great grandpa I don’t know for sure but any way he came from Russia he was one of elders to decide to go to Canada and then Mexico btw he was menonite have any of you heard that story before

    4. My grandfather is Puerto Rican, my grandmother is Italian, a little Jewish,and my other two grandparents are both Irish.

    5. my dads German and my mom is Norwegian and i think she is a little Swedish and some other things

  14. Hey, does anyone know if there is a wing feather saga page already? If not, who has an interest in making The last page a a wing feather page. I would really love it!I will be checking the page out regularly to see if anyone has taken me up on the offer!

  15. I am Ukrainian! 🇺🇦
    My parents came toUSA from Ukraine when they were little
    I was born In USA though

  16. If y’all don’t mind, would each of you be OK with posting a little bit about yourself, so we can get to know each other better- if so, u could post your favorite animal, food, color, bible verse, singer , and aio episode. Thanks! Just a suggestion.

  17. My fav Penny quote, Album 58, episode 2: “oh, I forgot my last name, how embarrassing.” 🤣🤣 totally cracks me up ! Also, does anybody watch dude perfect? We went to their live show two nights ago.

  18. Fav Wooton quote from album 58: “well if you think it’s darth Vader, then no.” (Shortened by me)

  19. Please post your fav quotes from fav characters! I love to see them, and I’ll be checking Daily.

    Hey guys what do u think about doing a book study we could find out what book all of us have and then read chapters and then discuss what do u think I think it would be super fun plz think about it and get back to me as soon as possible

    1. Oh that sounds really fun Emma I will put that into consideration
      In the meantime has anyone read a book and then the movie based on that book
      If so then did you like the movie more or book?
      For example I read little Women and then watch movie
      Think I actually liked the book better
      But the movie was really good

  30. Does anyone write stories or poems here
    I started writing a book a few years ago
    But I stopped after 11 chapters
    But I write a lot of poetry!

  31. I think that’s a great idea we should vote all members of the book club page

  32. Hi, has anyone read the Mistmantle Chronicles?
    I would highly recommend them for anyone who likes Redwall, however they are like $20 each so 😬

    1. Hi,

      I own the first two Mistmantle Chronicles and have read them
      I really enjoyed them but never got around to reading the rest.
      I read the first Redwall book and found it really boring so i prefer Mistmantle.


  33. Sorry again Ava if I sound rude it’s just that I started this page and you know
    I kinda want to do what I have in store for it
    However you all have great ideas and suggestions and I will very gladly
    Consider anything you have in mind for the book page if you just ask
    Sorry again
    I am seriously not trying to offend anyone

  34. Ok guys I have decided that we should do the book study
    So does anyone have these books
    Little Women
    Anne of green gables
    Black beauty
    Sarah plain and tall
    If you have or don’t have them let me know
    Also if you don’t want to do the book study then you don’t have to
    No one is forcing you to

    It’s really helpful
    Could you guys (all of you)
    Help spread the word about this page?
    Also I was thinking while we do the book study we could rate the books or chapters
    1 being the worst and 10 bing the best

    1. Heidi is a really good book
      If you ever get the chance to read it then you should
      And also don’t worry everyone If you don’t have a certain book then that’s fine
      We will use a book for our book study that everyone has
      Just to make sure no one is left out

  36. I’m writing a short story and hope to get it published.
    If you want to know more read the listeners by Walter De La More, it’s a poem I’m basing my story on
    Does anyone know a good publisher with Christian basis, preferably ok with kid writers?

  37. Also, seriously LOVE little women.

        Narnia: 10
        Heidi: 6
        Sarah Plain and Tall: 7
        Little House books: 9
        I’ve never read Star Fisher
        What’s it about?

        1. A Chinese girl who is an immigrant moves with her family to a city to start a laundry business
          But no one (except their landlady) is very happy to see them! The family is not getting any business
          Instead they are getting a lot of hostility instead. The family finds it hard to act like a family should when they are stressed about money issues! TBC

  65. CONT
    Everything seems to go wrong. The girl Joan is frustrated by her family…and the bullies at school. But everything changes when Joan’s mom, who is a terrible cook, starts taking cooking lessons from the landlady. It seems to be a disaster. Until she enters one of her pies in a pie contest. That pie was the the only one that was delicious

  66. CONT
    Then everyone turns friendly. The families laundry business booms!
    Joan finds out the girls at school actually at pre freindly.
    The family comes together more and there’s a really good ending

  90. Hey guys, I don’t know if any of you like LOTR or not, but I finally started a Tolkein/Middle Earth fan page. It’s on the ‘End of an Odyssey Career’ page, if anyone’s interested. My plan is to have trivia, challenges, and just talk about all things Tolkein. (Books and movies.) So if you want to check it out, it’s there!

  91. Anyone have a moment in a book where you think it is funny
    Plz share!
    I like the part where in little house in the big woods where Laura is picking up wood chips andslaps Mary and gets punished then has to go indide and it says: her only consolation was that Mary had to pick up all the wood chips herself

    1. Yess!! that part is so funny!
      I also really like the part in On the Banks of Plum Creek, when Laura gets a cape and muff for Christmas, and it says Laura’s was prettier than Nellie Olsen’s and Nellie had no muff. 🤣

  92. 💜#Danger’sDaughter💜, I am just shocked
    No one should live through their childhood without Narnia!

  93. My favorite part in The Archer’s Cup is when Jo Shanks makes an rather noisy appearance because he has a crush on Amber and he wasn’t paying attention to where he was going and ended up on the floor with a plate of food on head.

  94. has anyone read any lamplighter theater books?
    or listened to the lamplighter audio dramas?

    1. I do!!!! Have you read and listened to The Hidden Hand, The White Gypsy, or Chateau By The Lake? Those are my favorites!!!!😍😍😍😍 Oh and The Secret Bridge!!!! Oh and The Lost Pearl!!!! I guess I have I lot more than that but I won’t bore you with them. 🤣

      1. I’ve listened to The White Gypsy and the Hidden Hand, but I haven’t read any of those others.
        right now, I’m reading Joel boy of galilee.
        but I just love the White Gypsy it’s like my favorite!!!😍

    2. I love Lamplighter, I have a few friends who work at Lamplighter. There audio dramas are so fun. My first drama I had listened to was a basket of flowers.
