Preparing Our Family’s Hearts for Easter!
There is no better way to reinforce our trust in who God is, then to review the prophecies God made in the Old Testament and the fulfillment of them in the New Testament as it pertains to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Great preparation for Easter! My pastor wrote the devotionals and I drew the pictures. (He is so gifted at writing in layman’s terms.) I used the Lenten calendar as the bases for the time table. The first 40 days (including Sundays) review a prophecy (Bible and Devotional), the last 6 days (Easter Week) include a hands-on object lesson that will help the children have fun while learning, along with the Bible reading. This is a great way to bring in excitement and learning to our family devotional time(no matter the family size). I have just completed a printable artistically designed Lenten Calendar to follow along with the Devotional Book. The calendar is in the shape of a cross. If you would like to purchase and download this great resource just follow this to the product page.

Directions for Crown of Thorns Centerpiece: A great interactive center piece! Using a grapevine wreath, stick 46 toothpicks into it. Each devotional time of Lent, light the candle and remove one of the toothpicks. Easter day they will be all gone…He has Risen! (The centerpiece is not included in the price.)
