My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Mother sacrificed her life by refusing cancer treatment so her premature baby would live | the Daily Mail

An inspiring example of sacrificial motherhood. Here is a mom with clear risks to her health for continuing a pregnancy, who decides that the life of her son is worth it.

Mother sacrificed her life by refusing cancer treatment so her premature baby would live | the Daily Mail:
"But in October last year, his wife started suffering stomach cramps and tests at James Paget Hospital in Gorleston revealed tumours on her liver.


It is believed the disease spread from bowel cancer that had been growing unnoticed for years.

'The doctors said they couldn't do anything because she was pregnant,' said Mr Allard.

'She told them straight away they were not going to get rid of the baby. She'd have lost the will to fight.'"
