We will follow the story of Benjamin and learn about the resurrection story though his eyes. The book is called Benjamin’s Box and it is written by Melody Carlson. Each devotion will include a portion of the book, a scripture reading and a scavenger hunt item for your very own Benjamin Box. I encourage everyone to be creative and use items from around your house or yard. Thomas and I look forward to joining everyone on this journey through the amazing resurrection story of our Lord.
Please take photos and reply all to my Email that I sent out so we can all stay connected and share our journey together!
Grace and peace
