God’s Big Easter Story: A Holy Week Journey for Families provides your family with a simple, meaningful way to grow in faith together as you remember the events leading up to Jesus’ death and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.
Eight brief devotions to download and print encourage families to breathe, read, wonder, and pray together. Kids can add printable story symbols (either full-color or outline-style to color yourself) to a path that follows Jesus's journey from Palm Sunday to Easter morning. There are endless simple, fun ways to use the God's Big Easter Story symbols.
God's Big Easter Story is based on the Holy Week section of Faith Alive's popular God’s Big Story cards boxed set (available from FaithAliveResources.org). It's part of the Dwell at Home series of faith formation resources for families.

Hi! I came across your page looking for an Easter devotional. I love the one that you created, but just wanted to provide some feedback that on Page 4, section" "THROWING OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS", the text that was under it actually about Palm Sunday, and Hosanna. I thought you might want to know, so I created this user account in order to leave this feedback. It's Ok if you don't make this comment public. Thank you.
Hi there! I'm Megan, the Communications Coordinator for Faith Formation Ministries. Thank you for providing such kind feedback. I took a look at the section "Throwing Out the Money Changers" that you mentioned and noticed the description in the devotion only mentions children shouting "Hosanna," which does make it seem like it belongs to Palm Sunday and not "Throwing Out the Money Changers." But did you know the children in the temple courts (after Jesus overturned the tables) were shouting "Hosanna" too? I didn't until I took a second look at the listed passage (Matthew 21:12-17). The listed passage does appear to fit, but I learned something new because of your feedback, so thanks for reaching out!
Thanks for letting me know! I am so glad I reached out to you and learnt something new too!
