Teaching Hope

Our homeschool is finishing up our Holy Week studies and getting ready for Easter Celebrations.  But in the midst of our studies we are reminded of that sweet baby’s birth we celebrated just a few months ago.  And we are reminded of the “whys” He came down from Heaven.  “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the earth”, John 1:29

And we are ready to put the final touches on our Life of Jesus timeline.  The last days and hours of our LORD’s life are difficult for me to teach.  And I think that these lessons are difficult for the kids to learn about, too, especially for my older kids.  I’m not going to “sugar coat” or skip over anything with them.

Of course Jesus’ timeline doesn’t end on the cross, or even in the sealed tomb.  In fact, His timeline doesn’t end at all.

This Holy Week, I’m teaching HOPE!

Here’s a video of a song we’ve been listening to.

    I haven’t used a Holy Week curriculum before but always on the lookout for new ideas to teach my children the meaning behind our celebration. Thanks for sharing your week with us. 🙂
