When Easter comes around every year, many people think of chocolate, colored eggs, and strange looking rabbits carrying baskets.
As Christians, we know there’s a lot more to the story – Jesus’ triumphal parade, His last supper with His disciples, His brutal death on the cross, and His bodily resurrection.
The events surrounding the Easter story can evoke a complicated mix of emotions – sadness and joy, anger and gratitude, fear and trust. These mature themes can be challenging for adults to process.
Imagine how your children must feel.
To discuss how to share the significance of the Easter story with your children and to help them explore and process the powerful emotions evoked during Holy Week, we’ve invited Dr. Josh and Christi Straub to be our guests on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Inviting Your Children into the Easter Story.”
They’ll share how to have meaningful conversations with children about emotions and how to connect those emotions to biblical truth.
Josh and Christi Straub are founders of Famous at Home, a ministry dedicated to helping families live, love, and lead well.
While you’re here, I invite you to enjoy our free online booklet called, “Coming Home: An Invitation to Join God’s Family,” which explains what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
And if Focus has been a blessing to your family, you may be interested in helping us reach others by becoming a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. When you do, I’ll send you a copy of Dr. Josh and Christi Straub’s book 10 Days of the Easter Story: A Family Experience Through the Feelings of the Holy Week as a way of saying thank you for touching others with the love of Christ. You’ll also receive member-exclusive benefits. To make your pledge, or for more information, click here or call 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
