Easter Sunday!

What a beautiful day to celebrate Jesus' resurrection! Evidence of new life surrounded us from our new baby boy celebrating his first Easter to the Spring flowers blooming in our yard. I hope that you had a blessed Easter.

We have photos of all of our babies next to these Spring flowers.


My precious girls!


Happy Easter!

Blessings from our family!

Good Friday through a Child's Eyes


"Today's not a very good day, Mommy."

"Why do you say that, hon?"

"Well, Jesus died today."



I explained to my 7 year old that even though it is sad that Jesus died today, there is hope in his sacrifice. That because of this, our sins are wiped away so that we can be with God. And that there is hope because he rose again.

How do you talk about Jesus' death and resurrection with your children?

Even though it was Good Friday and it is difficult to think of what Jesus endured, we had a wonderful day together as a family. Beautiful weather- new life all around us- baby bunnies, robins, and spring flowers. May you experience the hope of Easter with your children!

Happy Easter!
