Celebrating Easter

A few weeks ago I was sent a Read and Share DVD Bible Book on Easter from Tommy Nelson. The book is set up as separate stories leading up to Jesus going to Heaven. As I was flipping through the book I got an idea. At home this week we were have been following the Easter story.

On Sunday night we celebrated Palm Sunday. On Tuesday night we watched the DVD that came with the Read and Share book. It has six stories from the Life of Jesus. My girls really enjoyed the DVD and they remembered all of the stories.

Tonight we will celebrate the Lord's Supper. We do not let our girls participate in Communion at church so it will be a special time for us to talk about what the meaning behind Communion. My husband will wash their feet and we will talk about what it means to be a servant.

Special times, special memories, and time together as a family celebrating Easter.

Today you can go to Gather Inspirit and enter to win an entire Read & Share Collection! Tommy Nelson is generously sending one commenter this special package. All you need to do is comment on how you share Bible Stories and Scriptures with your kids.

I would love to know how you are celebrating Easter this year with your family.

amy, this brings tears to my eyes! i love the thought of a "last supper" and washing their feet, explaining the meanings behind them.

we've been reading a book {he is alive} this week ... i'll be posting thoughts about it tomorrow ... but i love this addition to a very important tradition.

thank you for sharing!

What a great learning experience! I don't have anything that neat to share... I'll have to be thinking. Thanks for spurring me on with this great idea! Love, Michelle
