Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.
All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!
It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Moments to help illustrate what this day is truly all about.
Our family has been fans of Precious Moments for a while now. Not only are their trademark, big-eyed characters adorable, but their musical options and Book of Prayer have long been staples at bed-time.
My Easter Bible Storybook has been a great addition because it shares biblical truths in a simplified and clear manner, without dumbing it down. The colorful illustrations are eye-catching and hold the attention for both my 2 and 5 year old, and my eldest likes memorizing the prayers, songs, and verses we read each night.
In this case Luffie Lamb and Floppy Bunny were invited to hear about Jesus, because, as my children remind me, “God made everything, even the animals too!”
These sweet additions are plush and so soft, and even though they already played with them briefly, you better believe they’re going back in their baskets for Sunday! Ha!
Precious Moments has a great selection of keepsakes and special mementos for every occasion, and I’m glad we decided to add My Easter Bible Storybook to our growing collection.
It’s so important to show our children the love that Jesus has for us and the sacrifice and resurrection that made ALL the difference!
We’ll be reading this book and playing with our new stuffed friends year round, not just during this season, and I hope we always remember to reflect on the grace, mercy and love of our Savior!
