Why do we choose to celebrate Lent?
We enjoy taking this opportunity to focus for 40 days on the sacrifice Jesus made for each one of our lives. It's also a time for us to stay focused on God as a family.
This year, instead of only giving up something (individually) for Lent, we've decided to add something in as a family. We've agreed to all read the same scripture each evening, and then come together to discuss it! I'm so excited. Now that our kids are a little older (well, most of them!) we will be able to get into some great discussions.
I am curious, do you celebrate Lent? Why or why not? What are some good Lenten ideas you've had? Please leave a comment so we can all be blessed.
