(Easter) Holy Week Devotions for the Family
by Miiko Gibson
Easter is perhaps more significant than Christmas yet for most families, not much preparation of the heart is done towards its celebration. Let this year be different. Do a family devotions based on the last week of Jesus' life on earth with your children. The Holy Week Devotions, by homeschool mom Miiko Gibson, highlights a major event each day of the Holy Week. Each reading starts with relevant scripture, a suggested hymn and a key verse. This is followed by the devotional and thoughts for personal application. A fun and interesting activity is also included after each reading. For older children extra insights are given for reflection and discussion.
This book is great for the whole family.

Jesus the Life-Giver
by Katherine Loop
Jesus--The Life-Giver is a family devotional for Easter
week (Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday). Katherine Loop,
a homeschool graduate, and her mom Cris designed the devotional
specifically to meet the needs of homeschool families who
were looking for something meaningful they could do with
their children to prepare them for Easter.The devotional
also comes with instructions on how to let children make
their own paper flower gardens as they listen to the devotional
readings. The flower craft is coordinated with the devotional
to help reinforce the devotional's message. For example,
on the first day the devotional discusses our need for Jesus
to bring us life. The paper flower the children decorate
that day (the paper flowers are all included on one page
of the devotional--you just have to print them out) has
a small snowflake on it to remind the children of God's
promise to bring us life. Children glue the snowflake flower
to a black backing to remind them of how hopeless our hearts
are without Jesus.
The readings themselves are written simply enough for children
to grasp, yet contain plenty of application and thought-provoking
questions for parents too ;). The entire family will be
challenged to let the truths of Easter change the way they
live every day of their lives.
