Chapter One

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Teachers,

Many years ago, God entrusted me with these precious stories. Waking me in the middle of the night, He gave me each character's name and virtue. When I was going through an especially difficult time in my life, God humbled me, and I learned to depend on Him for everything. Because God makes all things new, He also gave me a new name for these characters—Humble Bumbles. At the same time, I fell in love with His Word and was able to see an incredible transformation in my thinking and behavior as I applied His truth to my life.

These stories come from the depths of my soul. I can identify with all the characters as they learn valuable lessons about how to become the virtues they represent. For example, Lydia Lamb learns to comfort others after she is comforted by the shepherd.

As children grow and mature, it is important to teach them God's principles. By reflecting the virtues that are inherent in God's character, we can share His love with a world that so desperately needs the hope of Jesus.

As you read these stories together, it is my prayer that both you and your children will relate to each of these flawed characters as they learn to become more like Jesus in their thoughts, words, and actions. May we all take these virtues to heart so that we can shine like stars in the darkness around us.

Humbly, Amy

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. Daniel 12:3

HUMILITY: having a gentle and mild spirit; not being proud

Humble Honeybee

Learns about Humility

Humble Honeybee lives in a beehive on a farm that belongs to Babo Bear.

Humble's job is to collect nectar from flowers. Whew! It is very hard work!
