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.

My Latest on Catholic

No one loves us like our mothers. We know this. We know this because we know how deeply we love our own children. We would give our last breath for them and we know that our moms feel the same way about us. But for many of us it’s easy to take Mom a little for granted. If we’re lucky enough to still have Mom around, it can become all too easy to take her for granted.
Last Mother’s Day was my 9th one without my mom. We had a great relationship, and I knew when she passed that she loved me. She also left knowing that I loved her! Yet as good as our relationship was, there are still little things that I regret. When I think of the ways I could have been a better daughter, it makes me sad. But there are also little things that I cherish and that makes my grief for her a little lighter. So during this month of May, as we honor our Blessed Mother, I offer this list of things to do in honor of your earthly mother too!
