Questions About Lent

After a relaxing and enjoyable vacation visiting family, I am back from my little hiatus! You'll see some pictures of what the girls and I were up to in the days to come but for now I wanted to share a post I read today: Why Do Lent?. This is beautifully written (as all of Ann Voskamp's posts are!) and a different way of looking at Lent, at least for me! After reading this, I'm pretty much convinced its a practice worth having on a yearly basis. I feel a little unprepared for it this year but plan on reading Lenten Lights and re-reading Treasuring God in Our Traditions. I'd really like to begin some kind of tradition in our family aimed at looking forward to Easter in the same way that we do with Advent. I'm just not totally sure how to go about that yet or what it should look like.

Do you have any traditions that incorporate your whole family in preparing for Easter?

What about Lent? Do you participate? If so, what does that look like for you? Do you fast from something? If so, what? How do you choose? Does it have a spiritual purpose for you?

Lots of questions, I know. But I'm curious. Especially after reading Ann's post. I never thought of Lent as a time of realizing your desparate need of a Saviour.

Editted to add this awesome perspective in regards to Lent: 41

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
