God's idea of prayer is not a ritual, but loving and lively communication between the best of friends.
God wants to have a personal relationship with each of us, and He wants it to be the deepest, most meaningful, most fulfilling and rewarding, most natural part of our lives. He wants to make our lives even better. He wants to add a wonderful new dimension to all that we do—the dimension of His loving presence.

The feast of the Epiphany occurs on the evening of January 6, the twelfth day after Christmas. Its name means “appearance” or “manifestation,” and it celebrates the day when Jesus was revealed as the Son of God to the wise men, or magi. When the magi adored the infant Jesus and presented Him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, it was taken as a sign, because they were Gentiles, that Jesus was sent as the Savior of all men everywhere, not only the Jews.
Following is a list of children’s stories, videos, coloring pages and activities for this special day.
