But how do we celebrate the reason we can celebrate at all? Jesus is alive! We want kids to figure out some ways they can go big and celebrate Easter with their family and friends! We start the month with The Bible. No, that wasn’t a typo. Think about it, in some ways the entire Bible is lesson in patience. Not because it takes so long to read from... read more
