In this episode, Liz decided he wanted to be a hero. But in the end, Grandpa Anole explained to him that God has a plan for us, and heroes are those who follow God’s plan.

God has a plan for us, but he doesn’t make us guess what it is. In 1 Thessalonians 5:12-18, the apostle Paul tells Christians how they can do what God wants them to do. Some of the things on Paul’s list include living in peace with others, encouraging those who are sad, helping those who are weak and being patient with everyone. He also says we should rejoice and do good for each other and pray and give thanks. If we follow God’s plan and do these things, we will be heroes.

Want to dig deeper into God's plan? Check out Psalm 40:4-5; Psalm 138:8; Proverbs 19:21; Remember that God is in control and knows the future. His plans will succeed.


Anyone can be a hero, but sometimes it helps to look the part. Make a cape! Ask for an old sheet or blanket or large piece of fabric that can be tied or pinned on to be your hero cape. No fabric available? Draw a cape on a large sheet of paper. Heroes have designs on their capes. Leave your cape blank for now. Listen to the next episodes to find out what Liz learns about hero power and to get ideas for symbols for your cape.
