Phoenix and Kingston Walwyn started riding the bus home three months ago.

When another kid on their bus started to call them names, they had a unique way of dealing with it: they gave him a Bible.

At first, the name-calling upset these two kids, and they told their mom.

“It made me feel like I wanted to yell at him,” Phoenix Walwyn, 8, told KHOU11.

“I wanted to say (something) back to him,” Kingston Walwyn, 7, said.

Watch how to young kids confronted their bully with a bible below:

Their mother, Kyla, spoke with administrators, but the bullying persisted. That’s when the family came up with a new idea.

“I sat back and was like, I don’t want to have to take my shirt off and meet (the bully) at the bus stop, you know what I mean,” their father, Vaughaliagan Walwyn, who preaches at CT Legacy Church, said. “So, I prayed about it and God said, you know what, let’s get this kid a Bible. Tell him Jesus loves him and invite him to church and see what happens.”

“We gave it to (the bully) and two minutes later when it was almost his stop to get off, he just said thank you and (I’m) sorry for all the bad stuff (I) did to you,” Phoenix said.

Ever since giving their bully a Bible, the kids say that there has been no more bullying.

“I don’t know, maybe (the bully) started to read the Bible at his house and found the scripture about it,” said Phoenix.

Vaughaligan Walwyn, who was kind of surprised by the bully’s reaction, said, “I was like, ‘Really?’ So, that kind of caught me off guard that it worked that fast or the kid was convicted.”

Now, they’re glad the bullying has stopped, and the Walwyn family has newfound faith in the power of their beliefs.
