Are you noticing just how different the world is around you?
In this season of Easter, I have been wondering just when and how Jesus might reveal himself to our oldest son, or all our sons for that matter.

When approached to write a post with Easter books my first thought was, “Every truly good book is an Easter book.”
As part of the One Thousand Days of Love campaign, Episcopal Relief & Development is offering a simple way for churches and parents to think beyond candy and stickers by adding some empathy and gratitude to this year’s Easter egg hunts.

I was fairly certain Jesus would be present among our family of five on Easter morning.
