Hey y'all
Here is the bulletin board I put up for Easter.  Sorry it's late, but it the truth is the same either way.
Not only did Jesus die for my sins, but He arose!  If He hadn't risen, Salvation would not be possible.  
Hallelujah, Christ arose!
Hope y'all had a Happy Easter!

I love the song "Because He Loved Me".  That's where I got the idea for the bulletin board. 
Here are the lyrics: 

"Because He Loved Me"
verse 1
On a hill called Calvary, Jesus my Lord suffered for me.
Carried the cross all the way my sins to atone.
Then they nailed Him to a cross, great was the pain and the loss
He suffered it all, Because He loved me. 

Because He loved me, my Saviour died, on the cross was crucified
No greater love for mortal man has ever been known.
Oh praise His dear name, He loved me so,

now I am His, He's mine I know
He suffered it all, Because He loved me.

verse 2
 Then they carried Him away, placed Him in a lonely grave
Surely they thought that this would be the end of this man.
But on that third and glorious day,

God came and rolled the stone away,
He rose from the dead Because He loved me

Thank God, Jesus loves US! 
Have a great day y'all!

"Dating, Dining and Desperation"
Melody Carlson

Daphne has sure been enjoying her leisurely life as an heiress.  She is working at home as free lance writer and creates her own schedule.  Her family and friends are concerned that she is becoming a hermit and might end up like her Aunt Dee - an old maid with cats in a huge house.  Though she tries unsuccessfully to convince them otherwise.  

Her new neighbor, a true southern belle, has taken it upon herself to make sure Daphne becomes more social.  She is also trying to help her meet her Aunt Dee's conditions in order to keep her inheritance.....She must be married by the end of the year to remain the heiress to her Aunt's estate, otherwise it goes to her cats, Lucy and Ethel.  

Daphne was worried at first about meeting her aunt's requests, but she is learning to take things in stride and trust God.  

Meanwhile, she is taking care of a neighbor girl, who is in desperate need of a friend and a caregiver.  Daphne finds herself attached to the sweet little girl and can't help but worry about what will happen when her uncle, a marine, comes home to assume custody. 

This book was even better than the first!  A page turner, with new characters and even more twist and turns than the first.  I can't wait to read the next book in the Dear Daphne series.  I was disappointed to find out that it may not be printed, but only come out in e-book form.  :(  I'll have no way of finding out what happens!  Please print the rest of these books!  

"Lock, Stock and Over A Barrel"
Melody Carlson

Daphne has been living what she thought was her dream life, but after 12 years it can get a little old.   Her life living in the Big City is not as exciting as she thought it would be.  Daphne has found herself in a rut.  So when her Aunt Dee passes and leaves everything to her, she doesn't hesitate to give up her not so exciting life in New York.  

While Daphne is enjoying being back in her home town, and becoming the heiress of her aunt's estate, she finds out there are some clauses to this inheritance.  Things that must come to pass by the end of the year.  Daphne would love to keep her beautiful house and classic car, but isn't sure if she can meet her aunt's deadline.  

I really enjoyed this book.  The first few pages were hard to get into, but after that I couldn't put it down.  There were a lot of twists and turns that kept my interest, with a good dose of humor as well!

 "An Amish Garden"
by:  Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller
Tricia Goyer & Vannetta Chapman

This book is four Amish novellas in one with a common theme - Amish gardens.  The Amish set great store by their gardens.  They provide food for their large families as well as income when they sell their produce.  They also are experts at growing flowers and plants.

Each of these stories all center around a garden.  But the last one "Where Healing Blooms" was my favorite.  It teaches us that everyone has a problem.  We should strive to help one another and provide a refuge for a hurting heart.
