I don't fully remember what exactly prompted me to work on this several weeks ago. But, I began searching God's Word for thoughts to share with my family during the 40 days before Easter.
More than half way through, I set it aside because there are already so many great ideas out there for celebrating these holy days. Yet - last week, I was reminded of it and opened it up again and God provided all the remaining pieces needed.
So, I humbly share the ideas He has given - Lord willing, we will be working through these ideas and Scriptures in our home and if you would like to join in, you are very welcome.

Here's how I envision this working in our home. Over the weekend, I made the paper chain slips so they are ready to assemble. You can download the file and just print them out or put them on pretty paper or whatever suits your time and taste.
Then, there is a guide for which Scriptures relate to the topic each day. You can read one or all of them or something else - it is just a suggestion. And, I've offered a family activity idea to go along with each of the daily readings.
I'm also providing a short supply list in case you want to make sure to have the particular items on hand. Most things used in the activities are things you'd have around the house all the time, but there may be a few things that you would not always have available. Those are the things that will be on the supply list.
