Tucked In:Bedtime Stories and Prayers with Episcopalians and others


The Very Best Day: The Way of Love for Children is being translated into Spanish and will be released in January 2021. Introducing the cover for El Mejor Día: El Camino del Amor para Niños! I want to thank Church Publishing and Yoimel González Hernández for making this dream a reality. May this book find its way to communities across the world. Communities who teach me every day what it means to follow the Way of Love. Preorders available soon!
Greetings -- I've written my own retelling of the story of Esther specifically for a tween/teen audience. Would it be appropriate to use it here?
