How to Teach Your Kids About Easter

There is no greater responsibility given to a husband and father than to lead my family.This is a calling that I take very seriously.

That’s why we have decided to be intentional about leading our family in the ways of Christ (for biblical background see Deuteronomy 6). One of the best and most significant ways we do this is by having regular Family Worship. For our family, this means that every night except Sunday and Wednesday we meet together before bedtime, sing songs, read the Bible, memorize Scripture and pray together.

This week, we’ve been using The Resurrection Eggs. This is a fun and simple way to teach your children about the Triumphal Entry, Garden of Gethsemane, Betrayal, Crucifixion, Burial and Resurrection of Christ.  We hide the eggs around the house and then with great joy the children run around and find them. Then, we sit down and go through the story of the gospel.

I pray that a love for God and His gospel will take root deeply in the hearts of my children at an early age. Can I guarantee that will happen? I don’t know.  But I do know this: if you won’t lead your family, someone else will!

  1. We musn’t forget to teach our children the important Biblical lessons we were raised on. I recently wrote a children’s book entitled “Wake Up! To All You Are” in hopes of reinvigorating parents to educate their children on the purpose we all serve in this world. I’d be happy to send you a copy!

    Keep up the great work and great parenting.

  2. Pastor, I was looking for North Cross Baptist Church in Cumming GA…do you know if that Church still exists?

    • Hey Josh. Thanks for the question. North Cross changed its name to Summit Church after we moved to Tennessee. My understanding is that Summit Church closed its doors a few years back. I’m not sure of all of the circumstances or the details. Sorry I’m not much help.
