Lenten Resources

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Lent is meant to be a time of repentance and reflection in the 40 days leading up to Easter (not counting Sundays). The 40 days is symbolic of the time Jesus spent in the wilderness fasting. Typically during Lent, a participant will "give up" or fast something. Those things range from meat, caffeine, chocolate, to various medias. Whatever is most important to you, that would be a sacrifice to do without, is usually a good place to start.  Whether you decide to "give up something for Lent" or not...don't miss out on the times of "intentional" reflection. 

Here are some awesome resources for you on your Lenten journey:

Easter Gardens, here, here, and here! We did this last year, check out this post to see our Easter Garden.

Magnetic Lenten Calendar- I really wanted to try this but didn't order it in time.  Maybe next year!

This is a new resource that I absolutely love:  Intentionally Celebrating Lent and Easter as a Family- a long list of activity ideas and links.

I hope you find something on this list that helps you during this exciting season leading up to the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
