LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!
Easter is coming. April 1st.
Just as we headed on a journey to the manger at Christmas time, this month we will be headed on a journey to the empty tomb as we celebrate the life and hope we have through Jesus.
As you know, we are passionate about making the focus of Christmas about Jesus. For Easter, we are doing back flips and cart wheels because JESUS’S DEATH AND RESURRECTION is the BEST part of the story…the very keeping of His promise of salvation to us.
We have created SIX devotionals for you and your family to do together these next six weeks.
The King of Glory
The Woman Who Loved Much
The Last Supper
A Prayer in the Garden
Christ Died for Us
and finally, Jesus is Alive!
I will be sharing all six devotionals on the blog throughout the month, but you can print them out for yourself RIGHT NOW! Easter Project Devotionals
Each devotional has a Bible Reading, an application, an activity to put it into practice, prayer, and songs for your family worship.
You can do these any time that works for your family. Get started now, wait until you get closer to Easter, it is really up to you.
Invite your children to a deeper understanding and love for Jesus this season!
We love to make something to serve as a visual reminder of each story. (We are ornament lovers over here!)
If you would like to join us, here is what you will need: Crayola Air-Dry Clay (at Walmart), a straw, and a circle cookie cutter (size your choice).
Each devotional story, the kids will flatten the clay into a pancake. Then cut it into a circle using the cookie cutter.
Using the straw, poke a hole in the top of the circle making a space for the ribbon. Then for each story, add a symbol to the clay and let it dry overnight.
Add a ribbon, and you’ve got a cute reminder of the Easter story!
We use a fern for The King of Glory, a tissue paper heart for The Woman Who loved Much, purple, brown, and green paint to make grapes for The Last Supper, flower petals for A Prayer in the Garden, beads to make a cross for Christ Died for Us, and tissue paper to make a sun for Jesus is Alive.
Find a small branch out in the yard to plant in a pot, and you have an Easter tree! My son and husband actually made a cross together for our ornaments.
Whether you make ornaments or not is NOT the point.
It is our prayer that these devotionals will help you spend some intentional time in God’s Word together as a family.
We pray that this month will be filled with moments where you are drawn to your loving Savior, not feeling overwhelmed, burdened, or stressed.
We’ve created these devotionals with that in mind.
So excited to get going, and let us know if you are joining us too!
