This week we are proud to bring you our annual Easter issue—the biggest to date. This year we are reminded that with so many strifes around the world—especially the hardships endured in Greece—that now is the time for renewal.
When you look closely at the definition of this powerful word, the following is listed: the state or process of being made spiritually new in the Holy Spirit.
St. Paul writes to the Ephesians, “…be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”
These are powerful words, especially during the season of Pascha.
As we celebrate the Resurrection, it is a challenge for us all to examine this word and apply it to those areas that are broken. A time for renewal.
Christ is Risen. Truly He is Risen.

Greek yogurt is all around us, thankfully. It is no longer in specialty stores but rather fills up the aisles of the grocery stores all over the United States. Nowadays, however, how we eat it is becoming an art form. And one company has made it into a delicious frozen treat not only for kids but all ages to enjoy. I recently talked to Drew Harrington, Co-Founder of the Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Company to find out the success of this frozen treat.
Yasso is the first ever frozen Greek yogurt bar to hit the shelves. Greek yogurt is all the craze now here in the United States. How did you come up with the idea to make it a frozen treat?
My friend Amanda Klane and I came up with the idea back in 2009 because were inspired by the Greek yogurt phenomenon – suddenly, it was everywhere! Together we decided we’d take on the challenge. With a lack of healthy options in the frozen novelty category, we saw the opportunity to create something new and unique to better meet consumer needs.
