Hey, Courageous Storytellers –
OK, so it feels a little ridiculous to start talking about Easter so soon after Christmas. But it’s not ridiculous—because it’s practically right around the corner. Jan. 11 marks 100 days until Easter (gulp).
But don’t you worry—we have your back with some helpful resources. If I were you, I’d start by downloading Super Sunday. It’s a super-fast read with lots of helpful, practical ideas. Then, eat a couple of peanut butter cup eggs (so much better than the Christmas trees) and get to work.
We’ll be here for you if you need us!
