In our family we are always looking for ways to make Easter more focused on the Savior. Emily Freeman shows us just how to make it a “High Holy Day,” as special and meaningful as Christmas. She includes crafts, scriptures and symbols each household can incorporate into their holiday, while weaving seven chapters of the disciples and citizens personal interactions with the Savior. She makes Easter a personal place where we can come to know more about the Savior’s sacrifice and resurrection.
I highly recommend making this book a companion to her other book a Christ- Centered Christmas. The two make bookends to our most sacred celebrations. Beautifully written and rich with doctrine.
