PurimlogoTwo years ago I was in Jerusalem during the Jewish holiday Purim. It was so much fun seeing not only all of the children in their costumes but also the general revelry and merriment associated with this holiday that has been celebrated by Jews for almost 2500 years. The origins of Purim are recorded in the Book of Esther and if you think God doesn’t have a sense of humor, then you really need to read this book!

Purim begins at sundown tomorrow. In honor of this holiday, one of my favorite websites The Toymaker has shared a free downloadable paper toy. Click here to print and cut out your own paper theater and characters to reenact the story of the brave and beautiful Queen Esther.


God’s Smuggler – Free!


In this post I told you about the book God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew and the tremendous impact it has had on my life. I am very excited to tell you that you can download the audio version of God’s Smuggler here. And it’s free! Whether you listen to the audio book, read the e-version on your e-reader, or hold a real book in your hands and read it the old-fashioned way, I encourage you to read this book. Christian biographies are my favorites and this one is definitely in my top 5.
