What is Lent?

 Lent is a season of the Church Year that lasts six weeks. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends the day before Easter Sunday. During these six weeks we look forward to Good Friday, the day our Lord died on the cross to pay for our sins, and to Easter Sunday, the day He rose from the dead to prove it!

Family Resources

  • Cut apart these prompts and choose one to read and talk about each day. Each of the questions will help you focus on Jesus and talk about things that matter to you as you live your life as his friend. As a family, choose a special time to spend with Jesus and each other each day of Lent. It could be at breakfast, dinner, bedtime, drive time, or anytime! (Although teeth brushing time might be a little tricky. It’s hard to talk and brush at the same time.) 

  •  Mark 12:29-31 “Jesus answered… ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 


  • Holy Week is an important opportunity for families to celebrate what Christ has done. As you inch closer to this important time, this devotional will help you lead kids through the events of Holy Week, including the Triumphal Entry, the Last Supper, and the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

    With talking points, devotionals, and guided prayers, our hope in that kids will grow a greater understanding of who they are in Christ and victorious hope we have in Him as families engage in meaningful gospel conversations.
