Primary Treasure

December 6, 2018
Primary Treasure 
 
Primary Treasure® (PT) has been published continuously since 1957. This spiritually oriented magazine is written for children ages 7-9. It is given each week to the children who attend Sabbath School (like Sunday School) at a Seventh-day Adventist Church.  We help children through the vehicle of true stories understand their infinite value to Jesus, their Creator and Redeemer; learn how to respond to God; show love to their family and friend; and serve others in their world.
 
Stories must be written from a Christian perspective and be consistent with Seventh-day Adventist beliefs and practice. Most must contain an overt spiritual message and yet not be preachy. Normally authors will be asked to add this message; if necessary, we will add it during the editing process. Note: Once accepted, you will not see the story again until it is in print.
 
They pay between $25 and $50.
