Lent 2016

So I have a couple of things up my sleeve for Lent. Today we are headed to church, bright and early, to get our ashes. I was reminded early about fasting today, this is one area we forget frequently until we wake up  and realize - oops we've eaten breakfast.

I connected with a webiste for praying a specific set of prayers for 40 days.  Arabahjoy and Praying the Promises of the Cross. 

I'm super excited about this because I have seen the power of Lectio Divina and I believe this challenge will fit in nicely, but also FOCUS this prayerful meditation for me.

The other activity I have involves the kids, because I want them to have something which keeps prayer and lenten activities on their brain daily, but also have fun with them. I have a book from years ago called Family Faith Walks. (affiliate link)

I will be going through the February and March activities, tweaking them and we will use our advent tree to keep track of what we are doing by hanging ornaments to keep track of our progress.

Have a blessed and rich lent everyone! And tell me what you are doing for lent in the comments.
