A Christ Centered Easter – Celebrating Easter Week
I am so excited for everyone to see this post. I have to give a HUGE thanks to the following resources which I used to bring everything together into one place and one item: A Christ Centered Easter by Janet and Joe Hales, and the following Conference talks; Believing Christ, Reflections on the Savior, The Greatest Week in History, The Victory over Death. This was truly a labor of love and I am completely excited for each and everyone of you to use this with your family.
The standard Easter week long celebration usually starts with Palm Sunday Triumphal Entry by Christ. However, after much research I felt it important to include the previous weeks journeys into the celebration. So I have added a day to the celebration. Our family will begin this on the Saturday that is 2 Saturday’s before Easter. Which is April 16th this year. You may choose to include this in yours or not, but it IS an important part of Christ’s life leading up to His Resurrection. The way this works is you take each day and follow the instructions on the card. Each day has a prophecy scripture, suggested reading scriptures to use, discussion topics, and activities to do. I have also included a description of the day that you can use for your family in order to explain what was happening that particular day. Everything you need is either in the PDF or a link has been provided on this blog. Please pray carefully about how this would best work in your family and follow the guidance of the spirit in your life.
I have a STRONG testimony of including Christ in our lives each and every day, not just during the holidays. I KNOW, through a sacred experience, that he KNOWS my name. Undeniably, I know He knows it. He knows who I am and wants nothing more for me than to have me come back to Him one day. I know He lives and I pray that what you find here will inspire you to draw closer to Christ. This work that I did was inspired by Him for you to use to help those around you. Use it, love the teachings by our prophets, and make it a part of your daily life. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
The PDF for this is a LARGE file. It is 63 MB, so be patient when downloading.
