How will you begin your Lenten season? Miriam McKenney talks to her teens about their Lenten disciplines and reflects on the importance of taking children to Ash Wednesday worship. When we honor and face death, we prepare ourselves to be welcomed in to new life in Jesus.
I encourage my boys to pray, but I’m not sure I’ve done a good job of showing them how. That’s something I will change this Lent.
My daughter told me, “For you being a priest, we aren’t the most religious family.” Is that because our faith is practical and immersive?
I’m committed to raising kids not just to go to church, but to understand they ARE the church. Luke and Acts tells exactly that story.
I needed a Bible that is accessible for children but still has all of the text. So I did my favorite thing—research!
Today, Rachel Jones introduces the Good Book Club. Stay tuned! Next, Melody Shobe will walk you through getting ready with young children.
As I think ahead to Lent, I know the place I need to start is in prayer.
These stories open my eyes and my heart to the work of God in the world in important and necessary ways.
Take note! Ash Wednesday is Valentine’s Day this year.
Participation in Lent Madness can be turned into a family ritual, like lighting the Advent Wreath at dinnertime or saying bedtime prayers together.
