My internet friend Aimee of Dear Harper asked what my favorite Lenten resources are. So I thought I'd whip up a little comprehensive post of my favorites. PLEASE add your favorites below in the comment section so everyone can browse around!
- Oak and Oats link-up inspired by the Naptime Diaries Lenten Journal (<--- that you can get anytime because they're undated and do not say Lent on them!)
- SheReadsTruth does a daily devotional (sent to my email too!) that I absolutely love. They are also doing a scripture reader devotional-type thing. They gave a scripture for you to reflect on, and then you can write your own thoughts on it (on your blog, Instagram, Facebook, etc.), and then there is a bunch of resources to sift through on the same passage. Very cool.
- A daily Lenten devotional that is sent to your email (love that!), and this one was awesome. It is done by Father Robert Barron, and it is really challenging. For example, today he said, "Over the next forty-seven days, resolve to perform a particular and sustained act of love." <--- Uh. dang. Already calling me out, and I love it.
- Abbey of Surviving Our Blessings is doing an Instagram Lent project, cleverly called #HolyLens. Check that out here. Abbey also made a WONDERFUL roundup up resources for Lent -- check out her list, and I know you'll find some great ideas for you to celebrate this season.
- There is a great cumulative Pinterest Board for Lent made by Haley of Carrots for Michaelmas.
- If you need some food ideas for making meatless meals for the season of Lent, head over to Two Os + More or Beth Anne's Best to find a link-up of meatless meals.
- Ann Voskamp put an incredibly moving post as well as tutorials for an Easter Tree (think of Jesse tree but for Lent/Easter). Very cool.
- *THIS ONE MAY BE MY VERY FAVORITE* Jennifer Dukes Lee is an incredible woman. And she has an important message for all of us here. You need to read that post. She says, "I’m going to wake up Easter morning, and I pray that I might see a woman who looks more like her Savior." <--- She's giving up looking in the mirror for 46 days. Now that's a Lenten sacrifice if I've ever heard one.
Okay, that's all I've got for now. What resources have you found that you're loving? Share in the comments!
