Earth day is coming up, and we wanted to remind everyone that this is a great time of the year to plant a tree or even your own vegetable garden.  A garden is a great family activity, and a way to get exercise and spend time outdoors.  Not only that, but you can then eat delicious, home-grown produce.  The wonderful tastes and colors of naturally grown fruits and vegetables were created by God, and nourish the body and the soul.  Earth day is also a great time to do crafts with kid’s such as making a pine-cone bird feeder.

For delicious, healthy ways to use the produce in your new garden, Dr. Scott Stoll has some great information and recipes here.  We’d love to hear how you celebrate the Earth and all of God’s wonderful creations!

Keep in mind that we have some events coming up at the store.  On April 20 at 7pm  is Ian Holme’s CD release concert and birthday party.  Everyone is invited, and we’re hoping to have a nice crowd.  You can check out Ian Holme’s and even download some of his music at http://ianholmesmusic.com/.

On April 28 at 9 AM is Christian Education Workshop with Velvet Lozada.  All Christian educators are invited to this free conference.  We have also cancelled our Courageous events this month.  Remember you can keep up on all the latest news on our Facebook page.

Here at Hackman’s, we’ve been enjoying the beautiful weather and getting ready for the Easter chicks to join us at the store.  They should be joining us the week before Easter.  Here are some of the cuties we had last year:

We will be sharing updates on the chicks to let you know when they hatch and when you can come see them at the store.  If you have kids, or know someone who does, we recommend that you pick up the new Veggie Tales DVD while you’re at it!

Right now we’re getting ready for our Immersion Day tomorrow from 9 AM- 3:30 PM.  We’re so excited to have Dr. Stoll and his wife in here to talk about nutrition and loving your body the way God intended.  We will also be providing a catered lunch.  We encourage you to check out this great video by Dr. Stoll:

Make sure to join us on Twitter!  A little birdie told me we might be holding a contest on there.  Tweet, Tweet!

If you’re looking for a perfect Easter present, I suggest that you check out our adorable little lambs that plays “Jesus Loves Me”.  We’ve been selling these for many, many years and they are always a huge hit.

We’ve heard some wonderful stories from our customers about the lambs.  They make a wonderful Easter or Christening gift, and many families have started a tradition, like Roger and his family:

“Thirty five years ago, we had our first grandson.  I came home from work and my wife said to me, ‘Look what I bought for him’.  It was a small lamb that played Jesus Loves Me.  That was the start of the family tradition.  Since that time we have purchased fourteen lambs for our grandchildren and four for our great grand-children.  I lost my wife Sept. 5, 1995, but I have purchased the last two myself for two great granddaughters.  You keep up the good Hackman tradition and as long as I am able I will keep up our tradition.  When I am unable to do so, I know my daughters will do the same.”

We’re also still looking for entries for our Facebook contest to win 2 tickets to Dr. Stoll’s Immersion Day on March 24.  Just let us know, on Facebook (or here) about your experiences with how Dr. Stoll’s system (or any type of healthy eating) has changed your life for the better, OR how you think Dr. Stoll’s system can help you to change your life.  Immersion Day will be an exciting event with great information on biblical nutrition, and a healthy catered lunch.  The contest will be ending on Tuesday, so there are only a couple more days to enter!

Also, our new website is live!  Please let us know what you think! (www.hackmans.com).  There are pictures and useful information on the site, and we also encourage you to visit our online store.

Last time Dr. Stoll visited the store and spoke about his book Alive! and his biblical nutrition system, he was a big hit.  We had quite a few people asking us if he would be visiting the store again, so we’re pleased to announce our next big event:
