Hi! This is me!                (Hint: I'm not the six-legged one.)

Say hi on Twitter!

Basic Info about Me

My name is Jonathan Schkade (rhymes with "body"). Mostly, I write books for kids that talk about Jesus and how much God loves us. I have also never kissed a real pig or crossed a lake in a wooden rowboat.

     Wow! You're here. You're really here. And where is here anyway?

(a). The coolest site with a picture of a guy holding a bug that I've been to all day

(b). Not McDonalds--that's for sure

(c). Inside the stomach of a giant sea monster named Phil

(d). A place full of Bible stories and bad jokes 

(e). All of the above

(f). Some of the above, but I really don't want to take the time to figure out which ones.

     If you answered "(f)," then you and I will get along just fine. To make it easy on you, here's a few of the basics.------>> 

Wise Bible Words            

But don't use these as an excuse to put off homework.

"People never stop thinking of things to put in books; and studying for a really long time can sure wear you out.” 

Ecclesiastes 12:12 (paraphrase)

Trust me about those wise words. I write books and study new things all the time, and sometimes a long nap is best. But if you still have energy left, click on one of the links at the top of the page, and it will take you to other stuff I've jammed in here to entertain you. Or you can click here. Have fun!

And don’t forget these books!
