Names of Christ Free Easter Printables

Hi, guys!  Today I’m sharing a fun idea to help make your family’s Easter more meaningful.  As a family of teenagers, our Easter looks a little different now than it used to.  Sadly, we have “aged out” of the egg hunts and some of the more traditional Easter activities, but I still really want to make it a special holiday for my family.  When I thought about how I could do that, I was inspired that the greatest gift I could give my children at this point in their lives – or at any age, really– is to know the Savior.  As they prepare to leave our home for college and missions, an intimate knowledge of who He is and what He can do in their lives will be the most important thing they can take with them. With that in mind, I created these “Names of Christ” printable study cards.

Names of Christ study cards -- in scriptures 750

Each card has a hand drawn chalk art design of one of Christ’s scriptural names on one side. On the back side is a scripture reference along with a story and/or quotes from our General Authorities that explain that name of Christ in a little more detail and hopefully sparks some thought or conversation. There are also questions or supplemental materials you can look up on for further thought and study.

This a wonderful way to keep the Savior in our daily thoughts and conversations in the week leading up to Easter, beginning on the Sunday before Easter and concluding on Easter itself. These cards can be studied as a family, perhaps as a discussion over dinner each evening, or individually in quiet study time.  With a little thought, many of them could be turned into interesting Family Home Evening Lessons or Youth devotionals.

Simply print the pages double-sided {front and back} onto card stock and cut apart.  I chose to laminate my cards so they would hold up for a long time.  I made a set for each member of my family to tuck in their scriptures or keep on their bedside tables as a daily reminder of the things they have come to know about the Savior.

I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father

I am a daughter of my heavenly father quoteSometimes it’s easy to recite the yw theme in a group at church  without fully thinking about or understanding the  connection we each have personally with our Heavenly Father. I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father and now even at 55 years old, I find peace in knowing that he knows me personally with all of my imperfections, my struggles, my joys. He knows my heart and He loves me… just as He loves each one of you. This is a quote I made to remind me that I am His daughter. You can find it here.

Take care, Brenda

Fun Family History Activity for Young Men & Young Women Joint Activity or for F.H.E.

The Church is really focusing member’s attention on Family History, and Sugardoodle is here to HELP!

A few months ago Melanie and I were invited to be part of the 2016 Rootstech Family Discovery Day. Our task was to come up with a super fun activity that the youth would love AND that would create some excitement about searching for the deceased.  We came up with a “Find-A-Grave” hunt.  The hunt was so successful that we had lots of youth leaders and stake family history experts stop and ask us for our handout so they could take the activity back to their youth groups, wards and families.

We decided to post the activity and worksheet here on our blog along with a few pointers on how you can do a similar activity.


Give everyone who will be participating the Find-A-Grave hunt a worksheet.  Explain that this is a timed activity. They will need to go onto and search for each name on their worksheet.  They then record the date they died, what invention they created and one simple fact {for instance where they were buried}. Whoever finishes first is the winner.


~ You can do this as teams, sharing cell phones at your ward building or home.

~You can do this as a scavenger hunt where you divide the youth into groups and as a team they drive with a leader to a designated house in the ward. There they hunt online for 3 of the graves. They then drive to another designated house and search for the other 3 graves. First team back to the chapel wins! *This is fun to include other families in your ward in the hunt when you use their computers. It’s a great way to get you ward family involved.

We would love to hear what fun things you have done to foster a love for Family History in your ward and family so we can post them on our blog.  Please email us at
