This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone. I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.
Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life-changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.

I love February! Good bye January, we are one step closer to spring!
A few years ago we started a fun project to focus on love. Each morning in our Bible time we read a scripture that talked about love. We focused on loving as the Bible tells us, and what the difference is between how the world perceives love and how God teaches us about love.
Each child made their own Valentine mailbox out of a large white envelope. Then they were hung on each of their bedroom doors. Everyday, their sibling wrote down one thing that they love about the person on a slip of paper (or cut out heart) and put it in the mailbox. On Valentine’s Day we read through them all.

Journey, Easter Journey just $1.99 for Kindle!
As the second book in author Dandi Mackall’s seasonal series, Journey, Easter Journey! presents the biblical story of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection in a way that is engaging and appropriate for young children. Mackall’s first book in the series was Off to Plymouth Rock! Great for kids age 3-7, this short, poetic verse with brilliant illustrations is lighthearted but filled with reverence for the sacrifice Christ paid. This story presents the life of Christ as a journey, beginning in Bethlehem with His birth, then moving on to His life in Nazareth and Galilee, telling about His Father’s love. Finally, Christ’s journey to Calvary, and the wondering if this was His journey’s end. But indeed it wasn’t the end, as His journey continued with His resurrection and ascension. This short verse concludes with the encouragement that someday we can all journey on to heaven and be together with Christ. Perfect for Easter story-telling or for using as a teaching tool with homeschoolers.
Journey, Easter Journey

We have been studying the Passion week using this resource:
The Final Days of Jesus: The Most Important Week of the Most Important Person Who Ever Lived
BibleWise has a FREE download of the Passion Week Chronology of Events. It is quite comprehensive.
Two months before the Passover, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. At that point, Jesus as well as Lazarus became marked men. The chief priests and Pharisees wanted to kill both of them. (John 11:18-57)
While Jesus knew he was to die on the cross eventually, this wasn’t the “appointed” time for the Pharisees and Scribes to put him to death. He stayed away from Jerusalem until the time of the Passover.
The road to the resurrection begins six days before Passover. (John 12:1) That would make it Friday and not Sunday, as others suggest.
Each event is listed in the appropriate Gospel, so you can go back and refresh yourself with the story.

Without the Resurrection, there is no hope.
We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world.
Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ’s conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss this vital doctrine at Easter time, and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers.
In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers:
- How history and archaeology support the Resurrection
- Why skeptical explanations come up short
- How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort
- Whether Easter is a pagan holiday
Equip yourself to answer today’s skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
