Author Jeffrey Watson’s New Book ‘Jesus and Mary on the Bittersweet Path’ Merges the Style of a Daily Devotional With the Power of Historical Fiction

BOWIE, Md. - November 23, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Jeffrey Watson has completed his new book, "Jesus and Mary on the Bittersweet Path: 10-Day Walks through the First Christmas and the First Easter": a fascinating work that blends biblical and cultural insight from the first century.

Author Jeffrey Watson is a gifted storyteller, with his skills rooted in frequent trips to the Middle East and his education at Catholic University (MA), Dallas Theological Seminary (DMin), and University of Maryland (Ph.D.). Watson serves as the director of operations for Erickson Senior Living and as adjunct faculty at the University of Maryland (UMBC).

Author Jeffrey Watson writes, "It is commonplace for us to picture Jesus as a thirty-three-year-old at Calvary; after all, His execution took place on April 3, AD 33. The bigger challenge comes with pinpointing His birth year."

He continues, "To guide us on this journey, we discover four things: (1) the Gregorian calendar, our system of "BC-AD" reckoning, doesn't take hold until the late Middle Ages; (2) furthermore, in the Gregorian method, there is no year zero, yielding us only one year between 1 BC and AD 1; (3) King Herod I, Jesus' first persecutor, died in the spring of 4 BC but was alive at Jesus' birth; and (4) Herod interrogates the Magi about (a) the original timing of the star and (b) the exact birthplace of the King (c) before reflexively unleashing a mass murder of Jewish boys, toddler age and down."

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Jeffrey Watson's new book invites readers to walk the bittersweet path, joining Jesus and Mary on that unique journey from the first Christmas through the first Easter.

This captivating work also features stunning artwork by artist Mary Evans.

Kidsy Expands Its Online Marketplace of Secondhand Baby and Kids Products Ahead of Holiday Gift Season

The gently used and open box children's goods reseller launches over 7,000 items for sale, including clothes, furniture, and toys, providing affordable options to combat inflation concerns.

CHICAGO - December 1, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Kidsy, an online marketplace for parents to buy and sell gently used kids' items across all categories in the U.S., announces a major growth milestone, with over 7,000 products now for sale since its April 2022 launch. This milestone makes Kidsy one of the fastest-growing resellers for products in its category, indicative of a rapidly growing secondhand shopping market as parents seek out cost-effective options as inflation hits a 40-year high.

The U.S. secondhand baby and kids products market is expected to reach $12.8 billion by 2030, driven by advancements in technology and a surge in popularity of secondhand marketplaces.

"Over the past few years, I've witnessed a seismic shift among my peers in the way they shop," said Shraysi Tandon, CEO and co-founder of Kidsy. "Gone are the days of clamoring for every item from the hottest new designer collection; that seems so passé today. Parents are now showing off their secondhand purchases and building closets and nurseries out of their lucky finds. There's an appreciation for the nostalgia and history attached to secondhand goods. It's so much more enchanting."

Kidsy offers a wide selection of products by eliminating the geographic limitations of a social media marketplace or a local secondhand store. Users can browse through items, including clothes, toys, books, bath items, diapering, travel gear and nursery essentials, and filter their search to find what they are looking for from sellers across the U.S. They are able to message sellers directly, ask questions about an item and even make them an offer, all through the Kidsy platform.

"At Kidsy, we believe the closets and nurseries of the future are circular. The rapid growth of Kidsy is testament to the boom of secondhand shopping, and we expect this trend to continue as more people recognize resale as a powerful solution to wastefulness, not to mention a solution to high prices and inflation," said Sinan Sari, co-founder and CTO of Kidsy. "With the holiday season here, we're excited to provide a resource for parents to find affordable options during an often cash-strapped time of year, and resell some of the gently used items they no longer have a use for."

For the holiday season, Kidsy is offering all customers a $5 coupon redeemable on the Kidsy marketplace between now and Dec. 31, 2022. To take advantage of the promotion, use HOLIDAY5 at checkout. 

Kidsy's parenting blog, answering Google's most frequently asked questions about kids, from feeding and sleep training to educational activities, is now live.
