Skipping Chocolate for Lent? How’s that Going for You?

I was never very successful as a kid whenever I attempted to give something up for Lent. Neither my family nor my church emphasized it as an important part of my faith, so I usually started with some good intentions and gave it up a few days later.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, you might like to read my post on the Christian Children’s Author website. I write about a new way to think about Lent this year–more of a giving in than a giving up. It’s more meaningful to me, and maybe it will be to you, too. Part of a life-long journey re-orienting our lives toward Jesus.

Thank you for reading! Do you recognize Lent? Please share your thoughts in the comments on the Christian Children’s Author site, or here.

Blessings,
Sonja
