A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families E-Book

(Disclosure: The links in this post are affiliate links but all thoughts are my own.)

I have super exciting news!! I just found out this morning that Amanda, who created the Truth in the Tinsel e-book that myself and so many of my friends and readers LOVED, has come out with an Easter e-book! The e-book is called “A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families“. Go beyond Easter baskets and bunnies and give your children a look at why we celebrate Easter and a sense of what the Resurrection is about. 

A Sense of the Resurrection

The e-book features 12 simple activities to be done the few weeks before Easter that will turn your home into a memorial to Jesus’ death and resurrection.  You’ll experience Jesus’ anointing, the Last Supper, Peter’s denial, the cross, the empty tomb and more. Memories will be made as your family uses their five senses to understand and believe the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. This simple eBook includes printables, Scriptures and specific conversation and starting points so you and your kids can get a sense of the resurrection.

This book is a little different than the Christmas one because it’s not only crafts. This e-book is more about activities and conversations. It can be used with younger children but older siblings can enjoy it as well so I think it’s really great for the whole family. I know for us, we won’t go into much detail about how Jesus died with my four year old since I don’t think he will understand it but we may say a bit more to my 5 year old who has a deeper understanding of things.

The e-book is somewhat similar to the Christmas one in the way it is setup. It has a list of materials you will need, some which can be found around your home. Printables are included as well for those (like me) who just can’t draw. She makes it easy for busy moms and dads to do the activities and provides step-by-step activities and talking points.

That Works For Me E-Book Review & Giveaway

For more than five years, the blog carnival, Works For Me Wednesday has been a hub of helpful tips for every area of a busy woman’s life. Hundreds of bloggers link up every week and thousands of tips have been shared over the past years.

I was really excited when I got an email a few months back asking if one of my tips could be included in a new e-book based on the concept of the popular blog carnival I had enjoyed linking up to in the past. I remember so many good tips that I learned from other bloggers who participated. The “That Works For Me” e-book has over 800 of the best tips and tricks that have been submitted over the years from parenting to cleaning to DIY crafts and everything in between.

I enjoyed looking through this e-book. The tips were all categorized so it was easy to find what I was looking for. I liked that I could click on links under each tip to be taken to the blogs they came from so that I could further explore all of the blogs. Some of my favorite tips included those on making freezer meals as gifts, organizing preschool activities, cutting onions {the secret to not crying is revealed!} and time saving tips.
