Spring is such a beautiful season, and it is the season for my favorite holiday: Easter. On this Fun (Good) Friday just before Easter, we wanted to share a few ideas with y'all to help you celebrate our risen Lord this weekend. Enjoy!

For Families
If you’re looking for a creative way to share the Easter story with your kiddos, consider trying Resurrection Cookies this year.  Each ingredient in these yummy cookies can be related to the story of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.  They bake overnight (with the oven off!) and are hollow in the morning-just like Jesus’ empty tomb!  Click on the picture below for a link to the full recipe.

For Singles
If you will be staying in Wake Forest this Easter instead of traveling to visit family, why not celebrate with your Sisters who are also here?  Invite two or three friends over for High Tea on Easter Sunday and enjoy one another’s company.  You don’t have to make a big fuss over it, but be sure to have tea (sweet tea if it has warmed up enough or hot tea if the temperature is still low . . . or both!) and a little snack food.  Use the tea time to reminisce about the good things that God has already done for you this year or over the past few years.  He is such a good Father!

For All of Us
Easter is such a time of joy; why not spend extra time today singing to the Lord who rose from the dead?  Sing as a family, sing during your “quiet time,” sing in the car.  Sing songs of joy and praise.  Be sure to pay attention to the words that you sing and let the grace of our Savior wash over you.  Maybe you’ll even find yourself dancing as you celebrate who God is and all that He has done for us.  Here are a few song ideas to get you started:
