Easter Lilies

 The Parable of the Lily written by Liz Curtis Higgs is a great book to do at the end of winter or at the beginning of spring.  This story teaches children about forgiveness with the emphasis on what Christ did for us (EASTER!)

The Homeschoolshare site has a lesson plan/unit study that goes along with this story.

I like this story because it has many lessons to teach:

  • Forgiveness
  • Seeds/soil/planting
  • Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13)
  • Disappointment/contentment
  • Thankfulness for the sacrificial, atoning work of Christ on the cross
  • and many more!

Along with her husband, she serves as a leader in their local homeschool support group. Thankful for the grace of God and His strength each day, she relies on Him to help grow to be more like Christ.
