Good Friday+Activity for Kids

With it being Good Friday, I thought I would share a blog I found thru Pinterest on how to explain Easter and Jesus' story to our children....We have been following "The True Confessions of Mrs. Olson" and her awesome guide for "The 12 Days of Easter". It has the scripture for each day, explaining what Jesus was doing leading up to his crucifixion, and an activity to help your child understand:)

There is nothing more important you can do as a parent than teaching and leading your child to Jesus! When all is said and done, HE is all we need. A relationship with HIM is what saves us from Hell. Not works, who we are, etc. I hope you all have a blessed Easter. I want my boys to have fun on Easter, but most importantly, I want them to know why we really celebrate it!

This is Today's Lesson and Activity:
Day 3: Tearjerker gum … “Jesus wept.”
Read the story of Jesus healing Lazarus in John 11. Talk about how Jesus was a real person with real emotions like us. Note how he was sad, but never lost hope. He knew God was going to use Lazarus’ story for His glory. Talk about times when we feel sad, hurt, scared at times and how awesome it is to have hope like Jesus did in this situation because God is behind us and hears our prayers.

In Christ,
