Blog Hop

Welcome to the Easter Egg Blog Hop! 
Today I am hosting the second stop along this ten-stop-hop.
What’s the Easter Egg Blog Hop? Learn more about it here, and join the fun!
In celebration of Lisa Tawn Bergren’s newest book in the God Gave Us series, God Gave Us Easter


I’m talking with her today about her own family traditions during the Easter holiday.
What traditions do you have? 

My family always enjoys the Easter baskets and hunting for the eggs. Not sure if this will change when they get older or not. =)

Today’s Easter Egg: What is Lisa’s favorite part of Easter? Head on over to the entry form and let us know. (You can summarize the answer!)

Hi, Lisa! Thanks for joining us today! 

Tima: How did you talk to your kids about the meaning of Christmas and Easter?

Lisa Bergren: It’s always been a part of our conversation. Christmas is Jesus’ birthday, and Easter is the way Jesus made for us to always be in relationship with our heavenly Father.

Tima: What have you learned from your children about God during holiday celebrations?

LB:  We get stressed out on the big theological turning-points that are represented in Christmas and Easter. But kids take what we say and build on it. So start small, basic, and go from there. Gradually, they begin to really want to know more about “Jesus’ birthday,” as well as why he had to die. And what both promises mean for us today.

Tima: What is your favorite tradition with your kids on Easter?

LB: We dye Easter eggs, I leave out Easter baskets (even for my teens! They’d be completely whiney if I didn’t), and then head over to church for the celebration. It’s so happy! Then we gather together for a big dinner, usually with extended family. NOTE: SHORT ANSWER FOR TODAY’S EGG: eggs; baskets; church; family dinner!

Thank you for chatting with us today! And thank you, readers, for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop!

Hey Tima! I hosted the sixth stop of this blog tour yesterday and am just now coming around to the other stops to say "hi"!

This is a great interview with Lisa. It's good to be reminded that we can start small - with children or anyone, for that matter!
