I discovered this unassuming series one afternoon when I got lost on Amazon--and have not regretted it since! If you love literature and scripture and the slow-reading of both, then this gem is for you. My absolute favorite book in the series is the "Between Midnight and Dawn" one she wrote on Lent and Eastertide. Her selections mirror the death and descent we experience during Lent and the rising and resurrection we experience during the Eastertide season.
This book is my first foray into Traci Smith's work. It is direct, to the point, and easy to adapt practices and think through concepts for children.
I have a background in child development, and even have dabbled in children's ministry, but I still flounder. (I am definitely a youth and college minister.) This book makes the process of Advent, Christmas, etc. relatable and me able to work with children, both the ones I'm raising and others.
I highly recommend it as a primer and it goes well paired with Shadow and Light (also sold in this store.)
