Passover and Easter

While I was attending at BYU, I attended an LDS Passover being put on by the religion department. I found this to be such a spiritual experience. The Passover was given to the Jews to turn them toward Jesus, it is full with so many symbols of Christ. After graduating and moving back home, I had my family do Passover for Family Home Evening. Ever since then, the Monday of Passover, my family has done an LDS Passover for FHE. 
This year we were unable to find our official passover script so I tried to find one on the internet. In the end I found this Ensign Article. It follows Passover, but really streamlines it so that it won't take for hours. I modified it by adding some of the modern and ancient symbolism. If you are interested in the adapted that I made, I'd happily email it to anyone who requests it. Otherwise use the Ensign article. My brother's young men group did it one year as a YM activity.

Sunday, as you all know, was Easter. And what a better Easter could it have been- I love it when General Conference is on Easter. It makes the BEST Easters. Easter was also wonderful with the grandbabies being so cute in their Easter outfits.

We read that article for our combined Stewart FHE right before Easter. It is really a great way to help you feel what it was like. It was beautiful!
