I have fallen behind here this week as I have been going through some challenging days lately and my emotions have been going wild. My body just seems to be taking its time to recover. Blogging time has been out the window. I would appreciate your prayers. Thus, I have not had a chance to read chapter 8 for the Hospitality book discussion or post that summary for the week. I will give that a break this week for all of those participating and allow you to get caught up.
For now, I wanted to share a few more resources to help you plan and prepare for the upcoming Resurrection Sunday this week. I hope you find these useful!

5-Day Easter Unit Study – The Teaching Home provides a complimentary five day unit study focusing on the joyful celebration of the Lord’s resurrection. The goals of the study are to: Teach our children the heart of the gospel, Proclaim to the world the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ – and salvation through faith in Him and then thank and praise Him! This may be a little late for this year but you could continue it through the aftermath of Sunday as well or save it for next year.
