My Review:

As the mother of six kids, I have always attempted to keep the Easter Bunny from hijacking Easter. Over the years, I’ve used many lessons to try to teach the true meaning of Easter. Most of my efforts have focused on telling the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. While I believe it’s important for my children to understand the Easter story, I like how this book focuses instead on the relationship that Jesus had with different individuals. It makes me think about my own relationship with Jesus Christ.

After reflecting on the personal experiences with these individuals, Freeman offers suggestions for creating a family tradition that emphasizes the lesson taught. Each of the traditions is simple, meaningful, and easy to implement. You could also adapt the traditions to suit your personal circumstances and family’s needs. You can go through the chapters each day, or you can focus on one chapter each week leading up to Easter Sunday.

Whether you use this book for personal enrichment or for your family, I think it is an excellent tool that will help draw hearts towards the Savior during this season.
