“The Granite Hill Dilemma” is a short fiction piece about a boy named Josh who struggles directly with pressure from his friends. What choice will Josh make? You’ll need to read to find out.
The article “Jellyfish Christians” takes a look at how some people “go with the flow” while Christians are called to “have a backbone and a brain” and do what is right no matter what others are doing.
There’s even a Jellyfish Test you can take to see how you deal with peer pressure.
In another short story, “Just a Pack of Gum,” a boy named Luke must decide how far he’ll go to make friends in a new town.
“The Thief of Peat Street,” our final piece of fiction, follows a few boys as they decide the right thing to do when it turns out their friend isn’t a GOOD friend.
