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.

In my domestic church, we put the lace table cloths of Easter away and time to break out the red ones!  

Here's a craft we did a few years ago that is still a big hit. 

Buy a clear bowl at the craft store, fill it with water and floating candles.  This is a picture of the first bowl I purchased - note the curved sides - that turned out to be a really bad idea as the heat from the candles cracked it during dinner and water went everywhere!

Then we searched holy cards and the internet to make sure each one of the apostles was accounted for, as well as Mary.

We trimmed them and glued them to the glass bowl and then went over the entire thing with Mod Podge!

Straight sided bowel worked much better!

The idea is that the floating candles are like the tongues of fire that hung over the apostles head at Pentecost.
