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.

Saint Peter and Saint Paul

The feast of st. Peter and Paul...celebrated with gold fish crackers.

Today the church celebrates two great early saints- St. Peter and St. Paul the Apostles.

One of my favorite things to do on this feast day is to prepare a fish dinner in remembrance of St. Peter being a fisherman and of Christ's commandment to be fishers of men!

But on weeks when it is really busy and I don't have time to do that, I take my apostles bowl that I used for Pentecost and fill it with goldfish crackers which is also a big crowd pleaser. 

I have two suggestions for activities to do with kids today.

Shower of Roses has this wonderful lap book that she created about the papacy. She has links and details on how to make it. See also here. 

Also, Bible Pathway Adventures has Pauls' Journeys in a totally downloadable PDF workbook with maps, geography and bible study. I bought mine at the Build Your Bundle Sale a few weeks ago. On the site it's currently only $6.00. This is educational and fun too!
