With so many families “sheltering in place” many of us will be “Eastering at home” this year. We have compiled some great ideas to make this an Easter full of gratitude, hope and joy. Like you, we moms at Moms for America come from a diversity of religions and backgrounds. While we acknowledge this diversity, we also recognize where we have commonality with faith, family and tradition. As such, we have compiled the resources found here from a variety of artists, churches, musicians, ministries and performers. We have linked directly to their sites where possible. We have gathered these resources as a tool for you and your family to enjoy this Easter season not as an endorsement of any particular church, company, performer, product or organization. Sharing and linking these resources implies no endorsement or partnership with any of the linked or cited sources, nor any of them with Moms for America. We hope these materials help make your Easter a special one for you and your family and offer a feeling of peace and sense of calm in these troubling times. Happy Easter from all of us at Moms for America!
