  1. Our family has volunteered at a camp for many years, and once their ending banquet (following a week of lessons on Esther) was a Feast of Purim. I’m sure that week of teaching from such a deeply meaningful book of the Bible stayed with the kids for a long time!

    1. What a great way to finish camp!! Purim is such a fun holiday for kids and it will help them always remember the Book of Esther!!

  2. “For such a time as this” is the phrase that God used to make it clear to me that He wanted me to start blogging. I have always loved the Story of Esther and now you have given me added history for the next time I read it!! Very interesting!!

  3. Diane this was perfect timing! I am just working on a series of messages about Esther for a retreat I’m speaking at. Your post inspired some great points out of the life of Esther. She’s intrigued me for years. I just love Hebrew History and culture. I’m so glad God connected me to you and your blog. Looking forward to getting to know you, if even just online 🙂

  6. Thanks for teaching me about Purim. I’ve been curious about the feasts and festivals of the Bible. I also liked how you said God has us positioned. Like right now… not ust sometime in the future.

  7. I love the wonderful story of Esther and I enjoyed learning more about this festival! I’ll never forget the Titanic costume! 🙂

  8. The story of Esther is one of my absolute favorites! So much adventure and courage and, of course as you pointed out, God’s faithfulness! I am learning a lot from your posts about the different feasts and festivals. Thank you!
