  1. Thank you for sharing such a powerful message. This is our blessed assurance that there is always hope. Our hope is built on Jesus and nothing else. Have a blessed and happy Easter.

  2. “So, I’ve been really trying to note my resurrections: the moments where I look back on my prayers and see how they’ve been answered; the times where I’ve moved past things I thought I wouldn’t recover from, the heartbreaks I was sure would totally destroy me; the creation of new traditions in the midst of pandemic; the new opportunities I’ve enjoyed; the blessings God has given me; the ways we’ve persevered.”

    This was it for me. Wrapped it up and put a bow on it. I’m going back now. Recounting and recalling His goodness. His resurrections. Thanks you for this Kathryn. xo

  3. The Easter story drags us through the dark and cold with its promise of warmth and light. What is hard to fathom is that the dark and cold are gifts more useful and sustaining, in the here and now, than the warmth and light. Go figure.

  4. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
