Around Easter every year, we start to think about how we’re going to talk to our kids about Jesus’ death - which is a pretty tricky topic for little kids! Most people like to skirt the topic. I get it. It’s not an easy one. Who wants to talk to kids about torture? About archaic and gruesome death?
Easter is a glorious day when we celebrate together the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Children get excited on Easter, but sometimes they don't always understand what Easter is about. Read about five ways that we can prepare children for Easter.
This year, we want to help you observe Passover as a family, even if you’ve never participated in this sacred tradition before. With a little planning and lots of prayer, you can use this season to help your children understand the heart and history of their faith. Share the significance of the holiday and how it relates to Easter by explaining redemption; that just as God used Moses to help deliver his people from Egypt, he later sent his son, Jesus to deliver us from our sins and redeem our lives.
