Quick Overview

An Advent activity book
The Jesse Tree is Jesus’ family tree – and this book gives step-by-step instructions on how to make one. Although designed as an Advent activity book, it is in fact much more. Using illustrations and photocopiable templates, new characters start appearing on the tree, starting with Adam symbolised by an apple. Finally, stars representing Jesus are added on Christmas Day.

My story so far...

I was born in Zambia to parents, ‘pioneers’ of their time, who in 1955 bravely chose to leave the family farm in Northern Ireland to begin married life on the other side of the world, growing tobacco in Africa. Due to my mother’s ill health, my family returned to Northern Ireland when I was almost three years old, and I experienced growing up during ‘the troubles’. My childhood was immersed in marvellous tales of wildest Africa, and the adventures and challenges of living there at that time.
