Last year, I felt very prepared for Easter. I personally was reading Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers which takes you into the lives of people in the line of Jesus. And to my children I read Amon's Adventure, a story of a young boy during the time of Christ. I'm pretty sure my pastor was in the book of Matthew as well. A fantastic combination!
I feel a little empty handed this year. When I heard people talking about lent on Facebook, I thought, "Oh no! Already?" I know of some activities we can do the week-of, but I'd like something fun and different to prepare my heart - and my children's - for this special, but often over looked, celebration.
So do you have any ideas for preparing for Easter?
