Hands down, Easter is my favorite holiday.
Even more than Christmas, Easter is a time to praise our King for new life. At Christmas we celebrate the One who came to save us from our sin. But at Easter, we celebrate the One who rose again so we might be fully restored to the King’s kingdom. We need more than to be forgiven of sin; we need to be fully remade in his image. And in Christ’s resurrection, we’re given hope for what we may one day look like.
While we live in light of the resurrection every day of the year, this Easter, I hope you’ll set aside some special time as a family to celebrate the fact that Christ is Risen! Here’s a tool to help you do so:
The Easter Story Eggs
Last year, I had the exciting opportunity to reflect on the resurrection by contributing a chapter to an Easter devotional produced Family Treeditions – a group helping you root your family in the love and knowledge of God.
The Easter Story Eggs walk you through the Easter story. There are 12 eggs ornaments that coincide with 12 devotions – each centering on a name, character attribute, or activity of our Savior all leading up to his resurrection.
On the front of each ornament is Christ’s title or character attribute; on the back is a matching symbol (great for pre-readers!) Last year, we added an ornament each day until we reached Easter Sunday. This year, I had a little help adding all the ornaments at once.
The tree, purchased separately, is one of my favorite Treeditions products. I have used it year around for many different events – Christmas advent decorations, baby showers, valentine love notes, etc. The white tree stands at 48” and the branches bend making it easy to decorate and then store away when it’s not in use. It is also available in iron!
I contributed a devotional on the innocence of Christ taken from John 18:29-38 and Isaiah 53, sharing a story from our recent trip to Ohio’s Canfield Fair where we watched a sheep shearing contest. Along with a selected Bible passage, each devotional includes discussion questions for your family and a special prayer to direct your heart toward our risen King.
The Easter Story Eggs have proven to be a wonderful tool for our family to celebrate the resurrection. I know your family will enjoy it, too!
