The Sand Dollar Legend
The sand dollar is an ideal item for a Christian object lesson. Described in "The Legend of the Sand Dollar" below, it's design by God ,the Creator, tells the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
One of my favorite activities as a child was finding sea shells at the beach. Although, I didn't live near a beach, my oldest sister did. Those are some wonderful memories as we searched for these treasures in the sand.
The greatest treasure though was, and still is, to find a sand dollar! This is still the "ultimate find!"
