Lent and 40 days to lean into generosity

by | Parenting with Courage

Lent is something that I’ve heard about and thought about for years.  As a mom, I’ve often carried on with the busyness of raising a family – sick kids, school runs, meal preparation and play-dates.  However, this year, I thought to try something new.  So, tonight over dinner, we will be discussing how we can generously embrace the season of Lent. It starts tomorrow, hence this quick post.lent poem

Lent is a beautiful season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. These reflections carried through the generations can inspire change and growth in families across the world.  Lent is where for 40 days Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.  However, I’d like to issue a fearless challenge of love to you.

“Lent is a time for discipline, for confession, for honesty, not because God is mean or fault- finding or finger-pointing but because he wants us to know the joy of being cleaned out, ready for all the good things he now has in store.” 
― N.T. Wright
