Looking to make Lent a little more meaningful or even just easier? Both of those adjectives would certainly help you prepare and focus, yes? Yes. Here are my favorite Lent resources. I hope it is a pious one for ya.
40 Simple Lenten Activities for Kids: This is the first year that Ellen really understands the liturgical year. I tried some of this stuff before, and while I am sure it was beneficial in some way, I think this year she will actually be able to put two and two together.
Walk with Jesus Through Lent Ornaments: I’ve had my eye on these bad boys for a few years now. I love having a tangible thing the kids can do each day during seasons of preparation. And, I really want something reusable like our Advent calendar. Maybe I will bite the bullet and grab these this year?
Easy Meatless Meals: Certainly you will be attending a fish fry or two, but don’t forget there are some insanely easy and filling meatless meals you can make right at home. My favorite? The bean burritos.
Picking Your Sacrifice: This guide is more specific to Friday abstinence, but I think all of the ideas are very appropriate for your Lenten sacrifice. Find a new idea that will help you grow this year.
Blessed is She Lent Journal: I used the Advent journal last year, and it was the most fruitful Advent I have ever had. No joke. I cannot wait to start using this on February 18; I really love having something concrete I can go to each day to keep my grounded. You can preorder the journal right now. Hot Tip: the Advent journal sold out last year!
