How to Help Your Child’s Faith Grow at Easter

On Easter, we remember the pinnacle of our Christian faith: Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. His victory assures us of forgiveness and eternal life—two things worth celebrating! You can use the Easter message as a springboard to share God’s good news with your kids all year long. Let kids know that Jesus is their friend and lets them live forever in heaven with him. Follow these tips: Realize that kids understand God—and Easter—in vivid, literal images. Don’t dismiss tough questions. Instead, read the Bible together. Tweak your traditions. Turn your usual Easter celebrations into opportunities to learn more about God and his Word. For your egg hunt, for example, fill plastic eggs with Scripture verses as well as candy. Know that it’s never too early to share the good news. Don’t wait until your kids can communicate to tell them about Jesus. Remember that children can discover God from infancy (see 2 Timothy 3:14-15).
