Where is Jesus Hidden?

by | Mar 5, 2021 | Books, Giveaway, Picture Books, Reviews | 2 comments

In addition to the new Bible Stories for Baby Hands, another book which will be making its way into one of our children’s Easter Baskets this year is author Maura Roan McKeegan’s recently published picture book Where is Jesus Hidden?

Jesus has a face like yours,
With eyes and nose and ears—
But sometimes we can’t see Him
Even though He’s very near.
Sometimes He is hidden,
Or He’s wearing a disguise,
But we can learn to find Him
If our hearts will help our eyes.

– excerpt from Where is Jesus Hidden?

“In Where is Jesus Hidden?, award-winning author Maura Roan McKeegan points to the many places and ways Jesus can be found. With a series of clues from Scripture to guide them, young children will learn that if they search for Jesus, he is never far.”

I’m currently gifting away two copies over at Instagram

Maura Roan McKeegan is also the author of some of my very favorite Catholic picture books for children, the “Old and New” series reverently illustrated by Ted Schluenderfritz. You can find our links and reviews in the archives for the first three books in the series: The End of the Fiery Sword: Adam & Eve and Jesus & MaryInto the Sea, Out of the Tomb: Jonah and Jesus and Building the Way to Heaven: The Tower of Babel and Pentecost

The fourth book in the series, Saved by the Lamb: Moses and Jesus, is available for pre-order! I can’t wait to see it and hope to have it in time to add it to an Easter Basket this year too!

    Jessica, I love love your book recommendations! I checked here first before ordering this year's Easter books. I guess I was a little too early in ordering my books. I love your new suggestions. Maybe I might possibly win a set of beautiful books?

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
