The 411:
Last year my personal journey brought me closer to God, back to prayer and really living my life with faith.  This book was about 7 other journeys and how their relationship with God, Jesus and their faith. This is the story of the crucifixion and resurrection and everything that led up to it.

What I loved about this book is how each story was broken into sections. 

Each chapter has its own
  • Hymn
  • Bible verse
  • Scripture Reading and lesson
  • And a lovely tradition 

You can choose to do these 7 readings over the course of a week leading up to Easter or 7 weeks leading up to Easter. It is your journey.

This is a great little book which would could be a great family shared tradition you do every year.

Emily's has helped me learn more about my religion as I continue my personal journey in a way that made me want to read the bible. I can't wait to work on each session and look forward to reading Celebrating A Christ Centered Christmas.
