Watch the "Do You Believe" Movie

Yesterday was my husband's 43rd birthday and we had the chance to go out and catch a movie after we went out for dinner. We ended up catching the movie "Do You Believe" which is out in theaters right now--we were so surprised by how good it was!



We had not even heard anything about this movie and I literally skipped over it three times as I looked up movies on my phone app. I must say that if you are looking for a highly inspirational, clean, chock full of Jesus movie you need to RUN----and don't walk, to see this new movie!

 Here is the trailer:






The trailer doesn't really do it justice--trust me. This is the description from the website:


"A dozen different souls—all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ … even if they don't believe it. Yet.

When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.

This stirring new film from the creators of God's Not Dead is in theaters now. More than a movie, it's a question we all must answer in our lifetimes: DO YOU BELIEVE?"


 They are only showing this quick moving, action packed movie for a short time so be sure to get out to see this movie as soon as you can. I am sending some of my older children out to see it today! This is also a good movie to check out with your church. You can find location and times here at their official website.




 I highly recommend that you get out to see it today!





 Enjoy!

10 Great Ideas for Making Easter Memorable for Children!



Easter is an important event in the Christian's life. It is a time that we remember what the Lord Jesus did for us, His sacrifice, His death, and His resurrection. We know the story good and well--but how do we teach it to our children in a meaningful and memorable way that makes sense to them?

First off, one of the very most important ways is just to read them the story through the Bible itself. Easy and simple and don't forget to start a discussion, especially if your children are old enough to understand it. You can even get them a Children's Bible to read through to make it easier.

But many of you have small children or grandchildren so I thought I would share some neat ways to still share the story and help them to learn the story.Maybe you can share these leading up to Easter or put them in the Easter basket if you make one. Either way I am sure it will be a blessing to them!

One of my favorite books at our house when the children were younger was The Very First Easter:


http://www.amazon.com/s/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&field-keywords=the%20very%20first%20easter&linkCode=ur2&sprefix=the%20very%20fir%2Caps&tag=awiwobuheho-20&url=search-alias%3Daps&linkId=B3J2T6OC3B4HWFAF"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /


It is well illustrated, well written, and great as a read aloud. My children read this for years and really enjoyed looking at all the pictures.

I also like the idea of using toys to help them remember and tried to do this more when I had a lot of children who were smaller. This sparked tons of conversation that we would not probably have had otherwise.  I like this Easter Easter flannel board:

http://www.amazon.com/Beginners-Bible-Supper-Flannelboard-Figures/dp/B0006V565W/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=the%20last%20supper&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427462904&s=toys-and-games&sr=1-6&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=YJPYPDUPTFUS3RL4"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /




 I also like this Last Supper lego toy:

http://www.amazon.com/Trinity-Toyz-Supper-Building-Block/dp/B00F3J1GJ2/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=the%20last%20supper%20toy%20trinity%20toys&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427464248&sr=8-1&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=TFUIMYDTNO2JL3VS"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /


 You can find this here and also other toys that might be of interest here.



 Movies are nice too, we have watched this one in the past called The Beginners Bible, The Story of Easter:


http://www.amazon.com/Beginners-Bible-Story-Easter-VHS/dp/6304258909/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=the%20easter%20story&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427464768&s=movies-tv&sr=1-9&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=AH4KC7YA3Y4P5O5O"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /


Some children respond greatly to gifts. Giving them jewelry is a great way to remind them about what is taught especially if you tie in the story with it. We like this beautiful girl's cross pendant:

<a target="_blank" href="Featuring-Commemorate-Diamond-cut/dp/B008LO7J56/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=cross%20necklace%20children&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427464977&sr=8-1&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=4ZHU4QYA6DFQ4CK2"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /



Or instead of a necklace, bracelet, or ring, you could give them a cross flexiclip  that would make a great reminder and lovely gift for them to wear on Easter Sunday morning from Lilla Rose--, they have them in extra small through extra large sizes:


http://www.lillarose.biz/wisewomanbuilds


(this Opal Maltese style is only available for the next three days but there are other cross styles available on the Lilla Rose website for adults too!)


Easter sticker books can be fun:


http://www.amazon.com/Easter-Sticker-Book-Books/dp/1859859437/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=easter%20sticker%20books&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427465384&sr=8-13&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=ELUNUOXFOBU7WP3W"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /



We can't forget crafts because crafts are fun! Do you remember last year when I share about A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families book with easy children's crafts pertaining to the Easter story leading up to the day. It was wildly popular and you can do all the Easter crafts in a day if you want, it is that simple!





http://ohamanda.com/a-sense-of-the-resurrection-an-easter-experience-for-families/?ap_id=junefuentes%22%20target=%22_blank


You can read more of my review last year of it here.

We also try to make an Easter garden every year:


We make three crosses from sticks or branches and a tomb with a rock or log in front that can be rolled away. You can view our post on it here.

Some of you may like to do eggs (we do)--if you do them why not share the story of Easter through them with Resurrection Eggs:


http://www.amazon.com/s/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&field-keywords=resurrection%20eggs&linkCode=ur2&tag=awiwobuheho-20&url=search-alias%3Daps&linkId=VRGDUQVW2FPAE6SU"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /

And if you like filling the baskets, here is a nice chocolate cross and dove egg that is getting harder and harder to find in stores:

http://www.amazon.com/Inspirational-Easter-Candy-Bundle-Chocolate/dp/B00UO6KPL4/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=easter%20cross%20chocolate&linkCode=ur2&qid=1427466805&sr=8-9&tag=awiwobuheho-20&linkId=EFYNNW2SGXF7VAKB"></a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=awiwobuheho-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /
