3.1 Christian Resources: Jesus Film Project and Behind the Easter Story

Watch the entire “Jesus” Film (two hours) or the shorter “The Story of Jesus for Children,”– both free online. Your family may also enjoy “Behind the Easter Story,” a walk through Jerusalem and environs via a limestone model and actual on-scene footage from the Holy Land. This production is presented in two 26-minute segments.

3.2 Thrifty Ideas: Article – “Tips to Help Save on Gas”

First, a look at the car, then the driver: check tire inflation, dispense with unneeded vehicle weight, and plan errands. Next, keep the gas tank at least half full of fuel at all times. Then, alter your driving style to minimize braking, avoid the left lane–and keep your speed down. See the article’s full edition for a discussion of air conditioning vs. open windows. Consider gas reward credit cards, but read the rules carefully and always pay the full balance if you choose that route (sorry about the pun). Also, read the article for details on how much shopping around makes sense. Lastly, check fuel price websites such as AAA’s. Some sites, such as Gas Buddy’s, have phone apps too.
