Prepare Your Heart (and Your Child's Heart) for Easter with Easter Stories

12:56 PM

I love that Easter is a time to reflect on our lives.  What we've done. What we've not done. And how Jesus paid the price so that we can always walk forward without shame or guilt.

But when it comes to examining our hearts, really examining them, it can be difficult to find inspiring words to start that process.  With children, it is even more difficult, because you want to encourage them, but the truth of the Gospel and what God wants in our lives needs to come through.

So when we began reading our review copy of Easter Stories, I was expecting a collection of very specifically Easter-themed parables.  What I got was a series of sometimes sweet, sometimes somber, but always thought-provoking and convicting tales of generations coming to know and be more like Christ.


From the first story, a tale of how a white lily gave a slovenly peasant a reason to clean up his life, to a very creative interpretation of the nativity with regards to how the donkey changed the outcome, my kids had no problem sitting for 2-10 minutes for each story in the evenings.  I enjoyed reading to them, and even my husband sat in and listened.

With great storytellers (C.S. Lewis, Tolstoy, Wilde) and lesser-knowns included in one volume, this book is not reserved for reading just at Easter.  It's resembles an entertaining mix of "A Book of Virtues", "The Bible", and "Aesop's Fables", and it's delightful!
