How are you doing? Hope your family is doing well 🙂 So good to see all of my friends on here again! Bethel: Hope you and your family are doing well too 🙂

  6. I’m back! Sorry, I wasn’t keeping up with this page.
    Miss Smile: HELLO!!!! So glad I can talk with you again!!! Guess what? I got the Club! Hope you can too, sometime in the (hopefully) near future. 🙂
    MRS: I was hoping so. We might as well since no one else is here…

  7. What what what what what?!? I can see my comment RIGHT NOW, three seconds after I posted it!!! It’s “awaiting moderation”, but I can see it! Cool!

  8. Hey AQ!!!! 🙂 So glad to be talking (I guess it is posting) with you again 🙂 So neat you got the club! Maybe I’ll get it again. Yeah, hopefully near to the future 🙂 How are your stories going? I have been on a break from mine lately and wrote my first real poem! Hope you and your family are safe and healthy and, God bless! Miss.Smile

  9. Miss Smile,
    You should post your poem on the writer’s page! I’d love to see it, plus it might start a chain reaction and get us back in the swing of things over there.
    Stories are going slowly, but coming!
    P.S. If you ever need someone to carry messages for you, I’m all yours!


  10. Hey AQ! I would like to post my poem only, it is kinda dark. It is about lost hope (which is also the title I gave it). But, if you think I should try to post it, maybe I will and see if the Mods give it an ok. Glad your stories are coming! That is so nice of you to offer to carry messages for me! Hope you have a good night God bless! Miss.Smile 🙂

  11. AQ: If you wouldn’t mind, would you please tell Gracie that I am SO sorry I never got to post my last bible study. The day was suppose to do it, I had to fill in for someone at church, and then my friend (her Dad left her and her family) call me, which as a HUGE answer to my prayers. And then, I lost my membership. Thank you SO! much Miss.Smile 🙂

  12. Oops…I forgot to put my name again lol. AQ: The post that has the profile name “Anonymous” was from me (NaomiorNa10). Hope you have a great Saturday!

    1. You could try saving your username. See that button at the bottom? After the button, it says “Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.” It’ll save your username. Hopefully!

  13. Miss Smile,
    Yep, I’ll tell her (once I find her). I’ll pray for your friend if you’d like… it might be none of my business. 🙂

  14. AQ: Oh thank you for telling Gracie! 🙂 If it isn’t too much to ask, would you tell her I miss her too? And, thank you SO much for praying for my friend! Please pray we might be able to see each other soon (if it’s God’s will). We both live in different states. Hope you and your family are safe and healthy 🙂 God bless! Miss.Smile 🙂

  15. Miss Smile,
    Is your friend moving to NC by any chance? That was a really random question, but it seems like I know a lot of people who are either moving to NC, live in NC, or have someone they know moving to NC. 😛

    I’ll tell her, and I’ll keep praying. 🙂

  16. Miss Smile,
    Message delivered! Here’s Gracie’s response: ❤️❤️❤️🤗 In case that does’t work, it’s three red hearts and a sitting emoji.

  17. AQ: Thank you for sending my messages! That’s totally fine (about the random question 🙂 ) And no, she lives in Tennessee. Strangely enough, God brought us together three years ago while are families went separately to Arkansas for a family vacation. That was the first time we met. We have kept in touch ever since. Hope you have a good day Miss. 🙂

  18. Miss Smile,
    Huh, that’s interesting. My best friend is, like, the complete opposite of me. We met during a CBS (community Bible study) we did together. She lives an hour away. 🙂

    And you’re welcome!

  19. Suilad,
    Welcome! 😉 So far, since we can only post on a few podcasts, the only real threads are the Writing Page and Frostclan (the Warrior Cat fan page). However, I am trying to start a Wingfeather Saga thread if you’d like to help. 🙂

  20. AQ: Yes, it is interesting. It reminds me that God works even when we don’t see it at first. I am also grateful we met and are friends here. Do you have plans for the 4th of July!? Thank you for sending my messages! Appreciate it 🙂 Do you like the song Proud to be An American? I love it! God bless! Miss.Smile 🙂

  21. Miss Smile,
    We went to our grandparent’s house for the 4th, and shot off fireworks. 🙂 WBU? I actually have never heard that song. Lol, my family is thinking of doing a YouTube video of “You’re the Reason Our Kids are Crazy” (talking about COVID) to “You’re the Reason Our Kids are Ugly”. 😛

  22. Hey guys! It’s me allieapgar from the club! How are you guys? I guess I see most of you guys on the aio club. Has anyone seen Phoenix around here? Is this a special page? Hey Na10 How are you?

  23. Allie,
    Yay, hello! This is where those of us from the Club meet and talk, so that we can stay in touch and carry messages and such. 🙂 Glad you’re here! Phoenix hasn’t been here yet that I know of. 🙁

  24. Miss Smile,
    TRQ: How are you doing? You said you were sick and you were hoping it wasn’t COVID (at least I think you did, 😛 ). Are you better?

  25. allieapgar: Hey!!! It’s great to see you again! I have been good. I am going to try to write some today. Other then that I haven’t been doing much. Hope you have a great night and, see you around! 🙂

  26. AQ: Sorry I haven’t responded to your comments sooner! I have been busy with the writer’s page. How are your writings going? Thank you for asking, praise God we didn’t have covid! My Aunt got it and me and my Mom started feeling sick. My Mom got tested but, thankfully both tests came back negative. We all are better now 🙂 God bless! Miss.Smile 🙂

  27. Miss Smile,
    Yay, glad to hear that. 🙂
    My writing’s going well. Somehow I’ve gotten a writing team, and they’re very supportive and inspiring! I’m almost done with the first draft of my book. 🙂 WBU? Are you still working on the story with Zarina?

  28. AQ: I am so happy you have found a supportive team! That is what I hope us writers on here will become. But, one step at a time 🙂 That is awesome you are almost done with your first draft! I am currently working on my story about Zirenia. And, I finally know how the series is going to end!!! Now, I just need years to write it! 🙂 Miss.Smile

  29. AQ: Hey! I know you said that you are really busy right now. I just want you to know that if you need to not be fully committed to the writing team I am trying to start on here, I want you to feel free to say so. I would love to have you help but, I understand if you need to take a break to focus on the things that are most important in life TBC

  30. I became too busy when I joined the club and, although it was an awesome time I won’t forget, we need to set our limits so we can give our best were we are most committed to be. I mean, I love all my friends from the club but, I also need to make sure that my life is under control and that I am still able to help serve my family. TBC

  31. I know you said that you have already found a wonderful encouraging team that is super supportive for you. That is really great for you and, I am happy that you have found what I am trying to start up. If you must need to only be apart of that team, I would totally understand. I would not think you selfish. TBC

  32. I don’t at all see you as that kind of person. And, you have been such a good friend to most people on here, I am sure they would agree. We can only do as much as we can do. And, sometimes when we get too busy, we can skip out on the things that are most important in life. Like, time with God and family, rest, and school. TBC

  33. Now, don’t get me wrong, if you can join I would love it! But, I also understand when we need to draw the line. I want you to have the freedom to say so. If you can only pop in now or then to join the team, I know we would love that. Just do what you can have peace doing. Hope you have a great night! God bless!

  34. Naomi,
    Oh no! I am busy, yes, but I can find time to write and it only takes a moment to say what I’ve been doing on here. But I completely forgot that we were starting on the first!!! I thought it was today for whatever reason. I’m so sorry, but I’m here now. And I totally get what you were saying. That’s why I’m not on so much anymore.

Think about the language that’s used by characters on Adventures in Odyssey. If Whit or Connie wouldn’t say it, please don’t write it.Constructive criticism or negative comments are fine, but mean comments aren’t. Again, think about how Whit would address a problem as opposed to Rodney Rathbone.

  • Due to the number of comments we receive, we can’t respond personally to questions submitted here. If you would like a personal response, please e-mail [email protected] Additionally, please keep comments to the restricted length of 500 characters or less.
