Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season
By C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Goudge, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and others
I’m thrilled with this opportunity to introduce this book to you. After having our two kids, Easter took on a whole other meaning. It was no longer just about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and heading to church on Easter Sunday, bright and early with hearts full of praise that Jesus Christ had risen! After our children were born, my thoughts about Easter were consumed with finding the perfect Community Egg Hunt to take my children to or planning one of our own in the backyard, filling baskets with treats, chocolate bunnies and dyeing hard-boiled eggs. With the busyness of making Easter fun for the kids, taking time to reflect on what the season is really about is important and good for the soul. Easter Stories is a wonderful collection of 26 short stories that helps me focus on the true meaning of Easter. I haven’t read the entire book yet, but it’s been good reading a story whenever I can. Easter Stories will be treasured on my bookshelf for many years. You will also have the opportunity to win a copy of this book by entering the giveaway below.
