I’ve wanted to create these Lent Cards for Thoughtful Christian Families for a while now.
SO here they are! I’m thrilled–and so are many of my Christian friends!
Finally, I’ve modified our Lent Cards for Modern Catholic Families, and I’ve made them more Bible-based. Still keeping with the idea of Pray, Fast, and Serve, which are important tenants of Lent, these Lent for Christian Families Cards are exactly what my family needs.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Lent for Christian Families: Pray, Fast, Serve Cards
You know that we love our daily cards.
You name it.
I am a big fan of consistency.
And, in recent years, our family has made an effort to do more Bible reading and more cultivating our relationship with Christ instead of simply reciting prayers and checking the box as “complete”. It’s been a big switch, a huge change, but it’s been a great one for us.
So I’ve tried to find Scripture that supported the action on the cards, and I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
I plan to put out our first card on Ash Wednesday, and they will take us all the way through Easter.
One thing I will definitely do differently this year, since my kids are all older and are running around, is that I will keep four cards at a time on a tiny canvas.
That way, it’ll be easier if one of the kids misses a day. If we’re out of town for a weekend, then that person can catch up if need be just by checking the canvas.
I’m excited. I want us all to become more familiar with Scripture, so I think this is a great start.
Here’s to not spending Lent pining over missed desserts and sweets and instead really making this special season a time of moving more slowly, reflecting, and giving to others.
There are eight pages of Lenten reflection cards , and I really think they’ll be helpful for kids.
And that’s it.
