    My review: Celebrating A Christ-Centered Easter by Emily Belle Freeman

    5 STARS

    Celebrating A Christ-Centered Easter is a good way to remember what the Easter holiday is about.
    Emily has broken it down to seven parts of the story of what was going on at that time with our Savior through seven people who had good examples and relationships with him.

    She uses these for seven weeks to strengthen her family's relationship to Christ.
    2 Simon
    3 Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus
    4  three different Marys
    5  Thomas
    6 Diciples on the road to Emmaus
    7 Jesus Christ
    She shares how she celebrates each week with these people who had dealings with the Savior, songs, activities to draw her family closer together and to remember the savior.

    I like the traditions of the red eggs.  I did not realize what coloring the eggs meant.

    This book is a fast read. Or you can spend a lot of time really learning the lessons, read the scripture accounts, sing the songs and do the activities of service and other things with the idea to bring Christ into our lives more fully.

    I like Emily's writing style and the tone of her books. I have now only read two of them so far and I have loved both.  I would read more books from Emily Belle Freeman in the future.

    I was given this book so that I could honestly give my own opinion of Celebrating A Christ-Centered Easter and be part of its book tour.
