"Eat little at a time, and only at need. For these things are given to serve you when all else fails. The cakes will keep sweet for many many days, if they are unbroken and left in their leaf-wrappings, as we have brought them. One will keep a traveler on his feet for a day of long labour, even if he be one of the tall men of Minas Tirith."
—The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lorien"
Lembas, also called Elven bread or Waybread in the Common Speech, was a special food made by the Elves in the Lord of the Rings. It was meant to sustain a traveler on his journey. We too, need food for our journey and it is our hope that these stories from our young people would be like food unto your soul as you journey towards Jesus.
They say that laughter is the best medicine and indeed we find it to be true here in our office. In the spirit of
