Welcome back to my monthly-ish newsletter format which offers a curated list of faith formation resources for many ages. I also offer offer a corresponding book recommendation list through Bookshop, an online bookstore that supports independent shops. This is an affiliate link as are many below. When you shop at Bookshop.org, I may receive a small commission which supports the ongoing maintenance of this site.
If you missed last month’s roundup of Lenten resources, you will find it here.
As Ash Wednesday nears, you may find my short video about Mailing Ashes helpful. I also have several previous posts about Ash Wednesday and Children.
I am again pleased to be a contributor to Picture Lent. These brief, visually based devotionals will engage people of all ages with scripture.
If you haven’t seen the playlists from the Michigan Annual Conference, be sure to look at the one for Holy Week.
For those who work with youth, Jennifer Gamber’s Giving Calendar is an engaging way to enter the season.
Books on (or soon to be on) My Shelf
Congratulations to Amelia Richardson Dress and Glenys Nellist on their new books!
Please see my review and a reading plan for Amelia’s The Hopeful Family.
I haven’t yet seen Glenys’ Twas the Morning of Easter, but several friends have said wonderful things!
Speaking of books, I recently had my daughter scan my books into Library Thing so I had an accurate inventory- it is a useful, free resource. Soon I will have a new book by one of my Launch! Team friends to announce. My book budget and my shelvers are being delightfully stretched by talented friends and colleagues!
