The days and week before Easter, also known as Holy Week, can be a wonderful time of encouraging children to understand the significance of the days before Christ’s crucifixion and the resurrection. Holy Week, also known as Passion Week, is the week before Easter, beginning with Palm Sunday and ending on Easter. Today we are focusing on

Creator: Elohim

Editor’s note: Children will learn to trust God in everything as they learn about the names and character of God in the I Am Devotional.
