Lent is a time of waiting. Don’t waste it.

Waiting in Wonder for Easter provides your family with devotions for Holy Week, answering common questions children might have, like these:

  • Why did people call out “Hosanna” to Jesus?
  • What did Jesus do in the Garden of Gethsemane?
  • Why is the day Jesus died called good?

Each day’s devotion also includes something to say, do, and pray.
