A few months back I saw a beautiful carved door in a friends house. But the door led to nowhere. It was merely propped up against the wall as a decor. That stuck in my head.

We would read a story from the Bible and she could choose to respond to the story by either drawing or in song. This one is her drawing ofContinue reading “Jesus born in a manger”
