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.

  • tags: college debt

    • Smith, who graduated last May from Arcadia University with a bachelor's degree in studio art, technically already has a job.

      She currently sells bicycles at Performance Bike in Rockville, Md. But working full-time at $8 an hour is barely enough to scrape by. Smith is also paying down more than $75,000 in student loans and nearly $3,000 in credit card debt. She currently lives with her grandmother in Silver Spring, Md
    • Smith is hardly the only recent graduate unable to secure a decent paying job while also struggling with piles of debt.

      Last week, Carl Van Horn, a professor of public policy at Rutgers University, released a study called "Unfulfilled Expectations: Recent College Graduates Struggle in a Troubled Economy." Van Horn and his colleagues polled young people who graduated from college between 2006 and 2010.

      Debt is a pervasive worry. Of the 571 graduates included in the study, nearly 60 percent had borrowed money to finance their education. Research also found that half of 2009 graduates are either unemployed or working in jobs that don't require a college degree.
