Our kids joining in the Easter egg hunt activity at the Bantug Lake Ranch.

Before Dindin was born, it was already somewhat an unspoken thing between my husband and I that we will train our children in the way of the Lord. We love Jesus and we are bible-believing Christians, so as a Christian family, we are raising our children to do the same.

So whenever we visited the Book Sale shop, a lot of the things that we buy are Christian books for kids. While Dindin was still young, we already read the Easter rhyming book to her that she has already memorized it. We read it any night throughout the year, not just Easter, along with other Bible story books.

Papa and Mama take turns reading the Easter story to the kids.
Some of the Christian books that we have collected over the years.

But when Easter comes, we emphasize it further. We read stories about the resurrection as well as other bible stories up to the day leading to Resurrection Sunday. Then on Easter morning, we go to church. And this year, that is what we did again.

We are not very strict with the kids. After all, they are kids. So because Easter bunnies and eggs have become a part of the commercial celebration of Easter, we made them wear colorful clothes and bunny headbands to church. In the afternoon, we also let them join an egg hunt at the picturesque Bantug Lake Ranch in Brgy. Alangilan, Bacolod City.

The kids wore bunny ear headbands to church on Easter Sunday. Since the fellowship that we go to is at a mall, we were able to have this colorful photo with the mall’s Easter program setup.

We had loads of fun but our priority, our focus is on the reason for the season–the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is risen–and that is the basis of our faith–that we believe and worship a living God. And we underscore that fact first in our children’s lives. Then we get to play.

On Black Saturday, we stayed home and the kids got to color some boiled eggs, which we also ate as snacks. That was their Easter art activity.
While waiting for the egg hunt to start, Papa and the kids indulged in some lakeside fishing.

    Easter is indeed a happy day! I told them that. And it is because there is a reason to celebrate! But also making it clear that even without these things about Resurrection Sunday, we can still celebrate!

      True that, Papa! 😀

  2. BlogGirl says:

    It’s always a great idea to teach kids about Jesus and everything that He has done. I’m sure gonna do these things to my kids too in the future. Glad that Dindin and her baby sister enjoyed their Easter Sunday! Great post! God Bless You. 🙂

  4. Homeschool is something I really want to do for my kids but being a solo parent, it has become impossible. I admire you for homeschooling your children and even more for teaching them about Jesus at an early age.

    I can only imagine how challenging it is to do homeschool for both of your girls. (I don’t have any experience with kids ,just dogs hahaha) But seeing them made me feel that you are doing a great job.

    1. Loving Mama says:

      Awwww that’s so nice to hear Tito Jojo. Because I sometimes get the feeling that I fail them. Thank you for the reassurance. 😀

  6. i love the way you and your husband’s tandem in parenting kids, hands-on – that’s wonderful
