Angels Through the Eyes of Kids

I only know the names of two angels — "Hark" and "Harold" ...
Gregory, Age 5

All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
Antonia, Age 9

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
Henry, Age 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
Sarah, Age 7

Angels don't eat but they drink milk from holy cows.
Jack, Age 6

Angels work for God and watch over kids whenever He has to go do something else.
Mitchell, Age 7

Angels live in cloud houses made by God's son, who's a very good carpenter.
Jared, Age 8

I hear angels all the time in my dreams. And I'm sticking with that no matter how many people tell me I'm crazy.
Molly, Age 8

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.
Regan, Age 10

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go north for the winter.
Sara, Age 6

It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to heaven, then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
Matthew, Age 9

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
Katelyn, Age 9

Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why but scientists are working on it.
Olive, Age 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the kid get over it.
Vicki, Age 8

Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The basic message is where you went wrong before you got dead.
Daniel, Age 9
