There are so many great Easter Hymns we never get around to singing.  For my primary singing time activity last year I made little Easter Hymnbooks.  You can click HERE to get to my post with the Hymnbook printable.


Another great family tradition we always do is decorate an Easter tree.  Click HERE to get to my Jesus ornament printables.  


Each picture is accompanied by an Easter quote or scripture that the family can read and discuss together to focus on the Savior.

Opening Song: This is My Beloved Son


It's just a tiny verse in the scripture reading, but the kids loved the story of finding money in the fish's mouth.


We ended the evening with a go-fishing game!  You could take turns making comments about the lesson as each person catches a fish.

There are so many great scripture stories in this week's lesson.  Sometimes simple is best.  It's nice to just cuddle together on the couch and tell the stories of Jesus.  That's what we did this week.


We talked about when Peter tried to walk on the water.  This is one of my most favorite faith-testing scripture stories of all time.


Everyone munched on bread and fish while we went through the stories of Christ's miracles.

MATTHEW 13 - As your family members read the Savior's parables, they might enjoy thinking of their own parables that teach the same truths about the kingdom of heaven, using objects of situations that are familiar to them.  


A few weeks ago I shared a family game with cards of objects around the house.  Each person takes a turn picking a card and coming up with a homemade "parable".  Click HERE to download the card printable.

The righteous must grow among the wicked until the end of the world.
This always makes me think of Mormon.  He was just such a cool cat.  He lived in a time when the Nephites were super wicked.  Even though he was alone in his values, he kept the commandments, loved his people, and sprung where he was planted.  Mormon 1:14-17

The Friend magazine has a super cute board game all about loving your neighbor and teaching how we can make good choices when others around us are choosing differently.  Get the board game printable HERE.


No matter what's happening in the world around us, we can always let our light shine.  Click HERE for a special night activity I did back when I worked with the Young Women. 


 This reminds me of the Sleeping at Last lyrics:

Like fireworks
We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars
With all of our hearts
Till our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

My yoke is easy and my burden is light
Mosiah is my favorite book in the Book of Mormon.  I love where Alma's people are in bondage and their burdens are made light.  This is so real.  I have experienced this where a trial I am experiencing is lighter than it should be, where the emotional weight no longer controls my life and I can find pure, pure joy in my hardest challenges because of the aid of my Savior.


For our activity we filled T's backpack with some of his heavy books. 


 It was funny watching him trying to carry it around without falling.  


We then went through his load and took out the books one by one.  Each book was sticky-tacked with a different emoticon.  We talked about all of the different ways we might feel down and how we can turn to Christ to help us ease those burdens.  And before you know it--BAM!  The backpack was light as a feather!
