Patti Rokus – RWYK Podcast Interview of Easter book, He Is Risen, Rocks Tell The Story of Easter
Welcome to the iTunes #1 kids & family podcast, Reading with Your Kids!
Our guest today is Patti Rokus, the rock lady, can’t stop picking up rocks on her hikes throughout the Pacific Northwest. Being outside used to be about the trees, sky, and critters, but now it’s all about rocks because they tell stories, which can be seen in her internationally published books and viral videos.
In our exciting interview, Patti talks about finding everyday rocks that literally convey emotions and portray scriptures. She also discusses how those pictures turned into a national book deal—“A Savior is Born.” Her second book emerged of rocks telling the story of the last week of the mortal life of Jesus—“He is Risen.” Both books and related viral videos can be found on her website, RocksTellStories.com and at bookstores everywhere.
It’s a fun interview. Come along!
