However, it's Easter Week and that is my absolute favorite time of year! I love the flowers, the fresh air, the animals emerging from their hide-outs, and I love the chance to think of all that God has done for me and my family and the world at large. I just love this time of year.
We, as a family, try and incorporate the spiritual side of Easter (the last week of the mortal life of the Savior, Jesus Christ) in our holiday festivities and have been using this packet ("Easter Holy Week for LDS Families") of goodies that I compiled last year to do so. I thought I'd share for others to make use of as well.
|Our fun and spiritual framework for family activities and devotionals during the Easter Holy Week!|
It's organized, hopefully comprehensive, and tries to tie the commercial side of Easter with the spiritual and religious side of Easter. It's written from an LDS/ Mormon perspective, in that there are references to religious text that people of LDS faith consider scripture; however, it is, of course, by and large biblically based. If you are not LDS, feel free to adapt your use of it in a way that you feel comfortable with your family.
If you share, please have the consideration to reference this site/post as where it originated from. And, as always, if you have questions or comments, please let me know!
Have a wonderful Easter week and enjoy!!
