3 resources to help prepare your heart for Easter
Updated: Mar 20, 2022
I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe Easter is just 4 weeks away from today!
There's something sweet about seeing pastel colors in every direction and Reese's peanut butter eggs for sale at the grocery store. It warms my heart and gets me so excited for spring!
As we prepare to celebrate Jesus' resurrection, I'd like to share a few resources with you if you’re looking for a Bible reading plan or extra encouragement over the next several weeks.
Here are 3 resources to help prepare your heart for Easter:
Scripture & Devotionals via Text
I’m a big fan of Andy Stanley and the work he does through North Point Ministries. You can sign up to receive a text message from North Point Ministries three times each week leading up to Easter. These text messages will include short devotionals (with the option to listen) and scripture readings that will pop up right on your phone!
If you're someone who struggles to create space for quiet time or you're filled to the brim with responsibilities and obligations, this option may be your best bet.
I’ve signed up to receive these texts, and would love to invite you to sign up as well. Please note, this started on March 14th, but you can easily jump right in!

7-Day Bible Reading Plan
The Bible App has a 7-day reading plan available called The Story of Easter. This reading plan is more scripture heavy with a short devotional included at the end. For example, day one asks you to read John 13 and 14, so if you’re like me, this may take some time.
However, in my opinion, there are no strict rules when it comes to reading plans. If completing this plan takes you 14 days, no judgment from me!
Here is a link to the 7 (or more)-day reading plan: The Story of Easter Reading Plan (start at any time)
A Reading Plan for Holy Week
The Gospel Coalition compiled a day-by-day breakdown of what Scripture tells us happened each day leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. I love how the author breaks down what happened in real-time from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. If you’re not quite in Easter mode yet, this option may be a great one for you to hold onto as we get closer to Easter!

If you have any other reading plans you’ve loved, please feel free to send them to me! I’m happy to share them with the rest of our crew.
