There are so many fantastic resources available today for teaching children about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, can’t it? I am going to share the majority of what we have been using over the years during Lent and Easter Season.
When intentionally striving to leave a legacy of faith and a deep understanding of Christ, His death, sacrifice, and resurrection, one way to really help impress the meaning of any season we celebrate is by having a few special things specifically to make this holiday memorable.
It doesn’t have to be much, maybe a book or two, or a special movie, special plates. Whatever fits your fancy! But I do believe that you will never regret investing in purposeful resources like the few I am going to share with you below. I just dream of the day I get to have a few grandkids on my lap reading one the books I “used” to read with their mom or dad.
And if you have the finances to spare, or are willing to invest in your legacy even more. By a few copies of some of your favorite books that will impress the faith upon your grandkids one day. Store them away in a child’s hope chest or keepsake box for when they are a mother or father. We have special boxes for every child, with their favorite kids books and the ones we believe NEED to be passed onto the next generation.
Remember to check your local library for books and check them out first to see how you like them before purchasing.

Jesus, thank you for coming, living among us and for loving us so much that you died on the cross for our sins. Thank you for your grace. Lord, we deeply desire for our children know you in a deep way and ask that you would guide us as we do our best to led them in a relationship with you. Help us to model the gospel as we live our lives and help us to engage this season of remembering you and your sacrifice for us during Easter. May our children have a deep understanding of you, what you did when you died and rose again, and may they truly get the most important meaning behind this holiday. May our hearts be truly rejoicing!
