14 Day Countdown to the Miracle of the Easter Season




Walk with Christ in this 14 day countdown to Easter Sunday.  Your family can open a plastic egg containing a special item and scripture to read that follows Christ's last week leading up to the Atonement.  It is a great way to remember why we celebrate this season and is a lot of fun.  You can also gather pictures of Christ during this time to show and further discuss each night's scripture with other verses in the New Testament.  At this link:  https://www.lds.org/bible-videos?lang=eng  you will find short Bible videos that you can use as well.
