Day 2: Mary’s Easter Story


Share with your family what you read in the “There’s More to Your Story” reading.

In a dream, the angel of the Lord told Mary, a young woman engaged to Joseph, that she was going to have a baby. This baby would be Jesus, the Savior of the world. Mary was afraid! But she chose to praise God anyway. 

Years later, Jesus’ death had to be painful for Mary. But her Easter story didn’t end at her son’s death on the cross. It was only the beginning of something more — God’s ultimate plan for salvation, through Jesus. 


John 19:25-27, Jeremiah 29:11, Matthew 28:19-20

Mary had hope and strong faith — she knew there was more to the story! God had a plan and a purpose for Jesus’ life. The Easter story is a reminder of God’s love and how He made a way for us to have a relationship with Him through His son, Jesus.

  • Why did Jesus die on the cross?
  • What are some ways we can share about Jesus with others?


Grab a piece of candy and a pair of socks. Try to unwrap the candy with socks on your hands. Telling others about Jesus can feel a little like unwrapping candy with socks on your hands — strange, confusing, and challenging.

But Jesus promises to be with us as we tell others about Him. (Matthew 28:18-12) Grab a piece of paper and write down the names of two people you want to share the Easter story with. Say a quick prayer as a family, asking for opportunities to share your faith with them.
