1. Easter Walk: A Treasure Hunt for the Real Meaning of Easter
Follow Tyler and Amy as they take a much-anticipated Easter walk with their grandpa. Using clues from the scriptures, they find six objects that symbolize specific moments in the Easter story. For example, they find something sharp to remind them of the Savior’s crown of thorns and something made of wood to remind them of the cross. As they walk, they learn important lessons about Easter and its particular message for their family — and yours.
Make your Easter more meaningful this year by following the events of Christ's life as recorded in the Bible and the Book of Mormon in the week before his resurrection. All it takes is five minutes a day.
Yesterday was Palm Sunday, which marked the beginning of the last week of Christ’s life over 2,000 years ago. It was on this day that Christ entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey while all those who recognized Him as their King shouted “Hosanna” and laid a path of palm leaves. As we approach this sacred week in history, it is important to step away from stuffed rabbits and dyed eggs to really reflect and focus on the Savior.

Prolific LDS actor Scott Christopher is probably most recognized as the role of the investigator in the popular Mormon movie The Best Two Years, but he has also acquired sideburns and yellow teeth for a role as General Doniphan in Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration. Most recently, however, he's rubbed shoulders with a few Hollywood stars in the BYUtv original series, Granite Flats. As an actor, a bishop, a motivational speaker, a writer, and a dad, he had a lot of great insights to share with us in this Q&A.
