When I read Proverbs I can’t help but notice the theme of instilling wisdom into our children’s hearts. It’s all over the place, isn’t it? So I notice it. I meditate on it.
And then I panic.
Teaching my daughters about the Lord is a heavy burden. The best kind of burden, a privilege – but one that makes me worry I’m not equipped to help them understand God’s love, His holiness and our sin, and the Good News of Jesus. That’s why I’m always so excited to learn about books, videos, activities and other resources that help me make God’s truth completely clear – for me and for my girls.
Amanda White, author of Truth in the Tinsel and OhAmanda.com, has written a great ebook for teaching your kids about Easter. A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families includes 12 simple activities to be done the few weeks before Easter that will turn your home into a memorial to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Families will experience Jesus’ anointing, the Last Supper, Peter’s denial, the cross, the empty tomb and more. Memories will be made as your family uses their five senses to understand and believe the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Since having my second daughter eight weeks ago, my six-year-old has felt a little neglected. (Head over heels in love with her baby sister, but still a bit overlooked in this early, hectic days!) We’ve decided to make Thursday afternoons a regular time for doing something special – just the two of us. So far we’ve learned to tie shoes (well, she learned. I already knew how, really!) and baked cupcakes.
But starting this week we’re going to dive into the meaningful activities Amanda has shared in A Sense of the Resurrection. I think this will be the perfect way for us to spend time together and prepare for Easter!
