"The Best Easter" & Other Easter Resources

Hello ladies!

We pray that you are well!  As we look ahead to the coming weeks and make preparations to gather together with friends and family, plan the menu and perhaps some fun activities for the children or grandchildren, we would be remiss if we did not prepare our hearts as well.  With that said, we would love to suggest some resources for your coming weeks as we seek to meditate upon our Savior’s amazing grace and incomparable love, as was demonstrated upon the cross.

The Best Easter

Bunny rabbits? Candy? New dresses and bonnets? Is that what Easter is about? In this story, The Best Easter, written by Jeremy Pulley (at age 9), join Eustice as he teaches his classmates the true meaning of Easter. It is our prayer that as you and your family read the experiences of Tommy, Suzie, Johnny, and Eustice, that you, too, would marvel afresh at the significance of the Easter season, as told through the eyes of a child. (Illustrations by Kayden Panariello, at age 11.)
