Greetings, everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my website. I’m a devout Christian (just call me joyous for Jesus!), a licensed attorney, and I love to read (meet the girl who read books in school because she wanted to…not for the pizza…but I still took the pizza). It’s extremely important to instill the love of reading in children early, and what better way to begin this love of reading than by teaching children about the most important person they’ll ever know in their lives-God?
PERKY GIRL IN A QUIRKY WORLD
I’m what you would call your typical tomboy-I have always loved sports, cars, getting my hands dirty, rolling around in the dirt, and enjoying this beautiful world that God has blessed us with. I am also a premium, grade-A nerd: I have always loved school, I have always loved to learn as much as I possibly can, and I want to use what I have learned to help the world around me. Sounds a bit cliche, right? Just call me cornier than the cob, and cheesier than macaroni-I am all about that life.
CHRISTIAN CURIOSITY WON’T KILL THE CAT
There are so many people who do not know God and have not accepted Jesus Christ into their lives as their personal Lord and Savior. The love of God should always (but of course, does not always) begin in the home, and the younger that we begin teaching our children about God, the better. The Bible can be difficult to read, and if you’re like some of us, we have the attention span of a twig or a melted marshmallow (talk about mush for brains). If the Bible can be broken down into simpler stories, not only can everyone, children and adults like, better understand what we are reading, but we will also have a greater appreciation for God, his love for us, and the great plans that he has for our lives.
LEARN. LAUGH. LIVE.
I don’t believe that learning about God should be limited to just your typical bedtime stories, either. I love to laugh and have fun, and children should be able to laugh and have fun as they learn about the Creator. I’m talking Christian comic books, Christian trading cards, Christian trivia, the works! As Proverbs 17:22 notes, a merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones. As we learn about God before bed, we don’t want any dry bones, dry mouths, dry hearts, or dry spirits! We want God’s living water to overwhelm us, make us smile, answer our most pressing questions, and give us unexplainable peace. Let’s get it cracking so that our souls won’t be lacking!
My family started reading Bible stories to me while I was in diapers-I have carried these stories with me into my (now) 20s, and I want to help others to have this same great, life changing experience.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to leave them below, and I will gladly talk to you! I can talk for days. Haha
With love and hugs,
Founder of Christian Bedtime Stories

Hello C.N. – what a great site and about me post. I totally agree with you about teaching children to love to read and also about the introduction of our Creator at an early age. Being taught why we celebrate Christmas and Easter are very important to me. I will be reading your other posts. Thank you for your great content.
Take care, and keep well.
Thank you so much, Nancy! I thank God that my grandparents instilled the love of Jesus Christ in us from a young age. Had I not known God’s power, I would have fallen by the wayside many times. Once you have the love of God in you, he’ll never let you go. Thank you, Jesus! God bless you!
I wonder what’s your name is… suppose it’s Carlettan 🙂 I must tell you that I’m surprised you are so young… thought you’re at least in your mid 30’s 🙂
Maybe that’s because people who know so many Bible stories are associated in my head as being adult and mature (assuming to have many years lol).
Thank you for this website, it will help me understand the Bible better as I have always found it difficult to interpret it for myself.
Best Wishes and God Bless You!
Thank you so much, Natalie! My first name is Carletta, and N is my middle initial. I’m a 28 year old spring chicken! Haha My grandparents kept me in church, and I definitely think that the excellent training that I received has contributed to me being so in love with Jesus Christ and wanting to spread his truth to this dying world. I will always get excited to talk about God! I want his Word to be accessible to everyone, regardless of age, language, or anything else. I will definitely keep them coming! God bless you!
This is a great website on our creator, and to teach the children well in their early age in helping them know we are more that just Mom/Dad, boy and girls, there is a higher spirit involved. Your humor is outstanding, I love it. Not just children, but adults also need to read these little stories to get a grasp of our creator all three in one person. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much, Elizabeth! It’s so important that everyone, from the youngest child to the oldest adult, know who and what Jesus Christ is. This world is getting crazier and crazier by the second, and only with God’s help will we make it through. I definitely want everyone, children and adults alike, to understand and enjoy learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible. I just want to do my part! Haha God bless you!
great idea with your blog. I am sure you can add value to your readers. I also like your writing style as it makes it easy to follow.
Thank you so much, Fabian! I definitely wanted to create a space where we can all, children and adults alike, understand and enjoy learning about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (and God’s Holy Word). The easier the Bible is to follow, the better! Haha God bless you!
You have done an excellent job of putting together great bible stories together. Especially this time when people are spending more time indoor with children, these stories are a great asset for parents to read to their children and renew our faith. Now that its hard to go to church even adults can spend some time reading your stories and meditate on His marvelous deeds. Continue to spread the joy. Wish you all the best and God Bless.
Thank you so much, Johnny! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha. I want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be as fun, enjoyable, relatable, and understandable as possible, for children and adults alike. We all need a closer and more intimate relationship with God, through his son, and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I will definitely keep them coming! God bless you!
I am a blessing for reading and finding your website. It will help me connect my children with the Most and incredible History about our world and help us learn about the Love and Benevolence of God for sending His Holy Son Jesus Christ for Saving Us. God Blessing you Greatly.
Thank you so much, Debora! I love Jesus Christ and want to use my God-given abilities to point people to him. We live in a very lost, sin-sick world, and I just want to do my part to spread God’s truth and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I will definitely keep the stories coming! God bless you!
This is a really interesting blog, I am really pleased that I came across. I need to forwarded your article on to a few friends and family too. If they have any questions then they will get in touch with you, if that is OK?
Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.
All the best.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Yosef! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha. You can most certainly pass my site along to your friends and family! Thank you so much! I will gladly answer any questions that they have! God bless you!
I will start by saying, what a fantastic, fun, and playful website for youngsters to learn about Jesus and Christianity by reading all these very creative children’s books. Very Well Done Indeed!
Your passion and vibrant views on religion are infectious, I will be showing my 2 little ones your site and let them pick a book for bedtime reading.
Thank you so much, Steven! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha. I want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be as fun and understandable as possible, for children and adults alike. Thank you so much for wanting to share my stories with your little ones! I pray that you all enjoy them! God bless you!
I love your website and am thrilled to find another Christian online, it is quite an honor meeting you and hearing about what you think about instilling reading early on in children development as they go from infant to adulthood.
I could not agree with you more on expanding on Christian learning and living scripturally and spiritually also.
Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,
Thank you so much, Angelina! I am always ecstatic to meet fellow Christians (thank you, Jesus!), and I want to use my God-given talents to point people back to the Cross. IT’s so important that we instill the love of God and reading in children from an early age, as this world is lost, and heading in the wrong direction. I pray for your immediate and everlasting online success, and thank you once again for taking time to read my post! God bless you!
