My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.
– Billy Graham
On February 21, 2018, Billy Graham passed away from natural causes in his Montreal, North Carolina home. He was 99 years old. A spiritual giant, it’s no surprise that timeline after timeline was flooded with posts about the impact he made within the Christian community and the world. He preached Jesus to millions and remains one of the foremost pastor’s in America’s history.
Thanks to Front Gate Media, I received a complimentary copy of Rev. Graham’s published children’s book, God’s Good News.
This book is a welcome edition to our collection and a wonderful way to show our little ones the way to the cross as we prayerfully encourage them to seek God with their whole hearts.
Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.
All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!
It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Momentsto help illustrate what this day is truly all about.
