As they walk, they learn important lessons about Easter and its particular message for their family — and yours.

3. 12" Marble Christus
This awe-inspiring cultured marble Christus statue depicts Jesus Christ just as the scriptures describe Him, beckoning to us with open arms in a most pleasant manner, as if saying: “Come unto me.” The original Christus statue by Sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) was made of plaster in 1823. This gift is perfect for anyone seeking to add more Christ-centered décor to their home.
4. The Sacrament (John Bytheway)
It's understandable that some children appear bored or distracted during sacrament meeting. Many young Latter-day Saints are probably unsure about the true meaning of the sacrament and why we attend. With this in mind, bestselling author John Bytheway has composed a delightful poem to help Latter-day Saints young and old appreciate the ordinance of the sacrament. In particular, children will learn what they should be thinking about (and not be thinking about) during this sacred time as well as what the sacrament can do for all of us.
5. He is Risen (Mormon Tabernacle Choir)

Dr. Madsen's penetrating insights and witness illuminate the life of Christ in a unique and personal way. Seeing the Savior's ministry in its original setting, with added perspective from the heart and mind of a true disciple, will enhance your knowledge and understanding of the Eternal Christ.
8. Dear to the Heart (Framed Art)
In this painting from famed artist Simon Dewey, the Savior is caring for the individual lamb while also watching over the entire flock. The healing, comfort, and peace that only He can offer is a gift that is given individually in our lives. "More than anything in this image," Dewey explains, "I want people to feel the love and peace that comes from knowing that our Savior is there, watching over us."
9. The 7-Day Christian
Christianity is facing great opposition. No one is being thrown to lions, but many followers of Christ face persecution because of their beliefs. At the very least, most know how it feels to end up on the wrong side of a "politically correct" conversation. More than ever before, we need believing and behaving disciples—men and women who are ready to stand up and stand together to change the world as early Christians did: one righteous choice at a time.
