ABOUT THE BOOKS

WALKING THROUGH HOLY WEEK: A Journey into the Story of Easter

As we approach the upcoming Easter season, many faithful strive to keep the season intentional and inspirational for themselves and their families. However in our busy and commercial world of fancy Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies, the sacredness of the holiday is sometimes missed, like a well-hidden Easter egg.

Spiritual director and inspirational author Karen May guides worshipers and readers on a journey through through Holy Week, making each day real and personal as we approach one of the most important days in Christian history.

Walking Through Holy Week is an in-depth guide to the stories and events that open up a deeply meaningful experience of Easter. This six-chapter book is designed for personal or group study. Each chapter contains scripture, reflection questions, and explanations of items, actions, and events from Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday, with an additional chapter devoted to the Stations of the Cross – a traditional practice of Lent. Done on a weekly basis during Lent or simply for daily study during Holy Week, Walking Through Holy Week will enhance the reader’s experience of Easter in a new and beautiful way. This book is very meaningful for any Christian looking to deepen their faith, and a powerful tool for people entering the Catholic Church at Easter.

BE NOT AFRAID: Living with Faith in the Midst of a Fearful World

Don’t be afraid. How often does that phrase alone help us not to be afraid? For most of us, the answer is, “never.” We tell our children, our friends, and ourselves, but the phrase is never effective if it is not followed by some additional reassurance.

In this simple, yet profound study, Karen May takes us into the stories and characters of the Bible that help us to see our fear through the eyes of a comforting God who tells us not to be afraid. She helps us to find the reassurance and trust we need as we arrive in the uncomfortable and challenging moments of our lives. Join Karen as she explores God’s word as it relates to overcoming the fear in Delays, Obstacles, Suffering, Forgiveness, Fear, Leadership.
