A troll never truly goes away.

Isak is a big wooden troll. 

Visitors came to see him. TheyBut they tromped through yards. They left trash.

People said, “Take Isak down!”

Good news! Isak now is in a better spot. It is okay for visitors too.


Thomas Dambo built the troll for a festival last year in Breckenridge, Colorado. Townspeople didn’t know that thousands of visitors would come to see “Isak Heartstone.” Homeowners complained. Mr. Dambo took Isak down. He rebuilt the troll in the woods behind an ice arena. It Isak even has a heart-shaped stone inside. Make-believe trolls are not-so-nice creatures with stony hearts. There is good news for us! Ezekiel 36:26 tells us that God removes our hearts of stone and gives us hearts of flesh, to love Him!
