Celebrating the birth of Christ involves many meaningful traditions, but what about the holy day of Easter? This Easter season, examine the lives of women who intersected the life of Jesus. By taking time to examine the footsteps of Jesus, focus on His teaching, and watch His words in action, Preparing My Heart for Easter is a celebration of Christ's amazing love in the form of an eight-week Bible Study for women. Each week of the study consists of five daily studies and two weekend devotionals. Although the Easter story is filled with names of men, named and unnamed women played important roles. Preparing My Heart for Easter focuses on these women who followed Jesus during His life and death. Women like Mary Magdalene, Mary Mother of Jesus, and Mary and Martha (the sisters of Lazarus), looked on as Jesus hung on the cross; they also accompanied His body to the tomb and returned to anoint Him. Readers will relate to these Bible characters as these women first discover that Jesus has risen and that they need to spread the good news. Unnamed women in the New Testament are prominent in this study as well, such as the woman at the well and others. By focusing on the life and death of Jesus and the lives of the women who were eyewitnesses of his miraculous ministry on earth, readers will learn how Jesus changed and still changes the future for all women. Each weekend of the study offers you a chance to read about Easter hymns that will enrich your Sunday praise. You'll also learn the significance of Palm Sunday, The Lord's Supper, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost. Dedicate this Lenten season to prepare your heart for Easter, and watch Jesus transform your lifethrough His gentle touch.Stewart, Ann Marie is the author of 'Preparing My Heart for Easter A Woman's Journey to the Cross And Beyond', published 2006 under ISBN 9780899570532 and ISBN 0899570534.
