We have had a family tradition for about two decades of an evening Easter Devotional. Two years ago we created an LDS Thanksgiving Devotional and an LDS 24 Days of Christmas Devotional- people loved them. So, people have asked if I was going to make available my Easter devotional. Yes!
This is a Christ-centered devotional.
"I Testify of Christ: An Easter Devotional" is designed for Latter-day Saints and is a Christ Centered Anthology of Scripture, Quotes, Hymns, Testimonies of Church Leaders, and family traditions. Available for $14.99 through the Moor House Academy store.

"Tomorrow's joy or tomorrow's despair has its roots in decisions we make today. Perhaps some people think to themselves: 'I know I need to change some things in my life. Maybe later, but not now.' Those who stand at the threshold of life always waiting for the right time to change are like the man who stands at the bank of a river waiting for the water to pass so he can cross on dry land. Today is the day of decision." - Joseph B. Wirthlin

“We encourage you wherever you may live in the world to prepare for adversity by looking to the condition of your finances. We urge you to be modest in your expenditures; discipline yourselves in your purchases to avoid debt. . . . If you have paid your debts and have a financial reserve, even though it be small, you and your family will feel more secure and enjoy greater peace in your hearts (emphasis added).” - The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

"Until you have a son of your own... you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. You will never know the sense of honor that makes a man want to be more than he is and to pass something good and hopeful into the hands of his son. And you will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the personal demons that keep them from being the men they want their sons to be." - Kent Nerburn
