March 29–April 4
“I Am He Who Liveth, I Am He Who Was Slain”
- General conference.
Because general conference coincides with Easter Sunday this year, you might consider how the conference messages (including the music) can deepen your family’s testimony of Jesus Christ. For example, young children could draw a picture of the Savior, or hold up a picture of Him, when they hear a message or song about Jesus Christ. Other family members could make a list of truths they hear about the Savior. Afterward, family members could share their drawings or lists and their own testimonies of Jesus Christ.
- Doctrine and Covenants 88:14–17; 138:17, 50.
Your family might enjoy thinking of an analogy or object lesson to explain what it means to die and be resurrected—one that illustrates the body and spirit being separated and then reunited, such as a hand and a glove. How do these verses deepen our appreciation for what the Savior did for us?
- “I Know That My Redeemer Lives.”
To help your family consider the many ways the risen Savior blesses us today, you could sing together “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” (Hymns, no. 136) and connect truths taught in this song with those taught in the following scriptures: Doctrine and Covenants 6:34; 45:3–5; 84:77; 98:18; 138:23. Your family might also enjoy writing additional verses for the hymn that express how they know that their Redeemer lives.
