This Easter Egg Resurrection Lesson is sponsored by mormon.org as part of their Easter #PrinceofPeace campaign. I hope you will love this Easter lesson as much as my family does!
Easter is such a fun holiday for kids, and my family looks forward to it every year. As much as I love the egg hunts, the coloring of Easter eggs, and the yummy food, I really strive as a mother to help my children understand the reason why we celebrate Easter – Jesus Christ. On that third day, the tomb was empty. He lives. And because he conquered death, all of us can live again. What a miracle!
This resurrection lesson has been an Easter tradition in my family for years. It is a great way to help the scriptures come alive, even for small children. I am grateful to my mom who taught me to love the scriptures from a very young age. She and my dad taught me the stories, and the principles that went along with them.
As a teenager when my family was going through rough times, my mom would turn to the scriptures for comfort. In fact, I remember that she would sometimes lock herself in the bathroom so she could read uninterrupted! Maybe she wouldn’t want people to know that, but it sure made an impact on me. So sorry mom, your secret is out.
If like me, you are striving to teach your kids to love the scriptures and the Savior, this lesson is for you.
