Following A Savior Is Born: Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas, Rokus offers a visual narrative of Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection through artful arrangements of stones, with scripture verses appearing throughout. The figure of Jesus is crafted with a round, stone head, and shapely rocks form his sweeping robe: 'Jesus came to earth to bring healing and joy to all who follow Him, and to lead us home to God.' Rokus represents 'people who wanted to kill Him' as sinister stone faces with angry, slanted eyebrows and open mouths. Other scenes depict Jesus riding a stone donkey, washing the disciples' feet, on the cross, and his resurrection: 'After three days, Jesus came back to life! We will all live again because He conquered death.' An inventive and moving telling of the Easter story. Ages 4--8.

Patti Rokus spent her childhood in rural Oregon wading through streams, building forts and looking under rocks. A sensitive soul, she felt the joy and pain of others as if her own, and yearned to create beauty, connection and peace. Years later, taking a break from a career in technology with Microsoft, British Petroleum, Nike and others, she found her way back to her true loves - nature and God. Patti is still a wanderer, not yet rooted in one place, but can be found pocketing a few rocks on every hike throughout the Pacific Northwest, smiling at the attention from God. She believes that anyone can return to their true nature of connection, innocence and joy; but sometimes we just need someone to hold our hand and together find the answers to who we really are, and why we're here.
