40 faith building lenten activities for you and your family

Lent is just around the corner.  In an effort to prepare I’m sharing 40 Faith-Building Lenten Activities for you and your families today.

Lent is an important time around my house–both for me and for my family.  Unfortunately I live a life that is really loud and busy and full of distractions.  In the end I’m not only ready for Lent, a time of quiet and prayer and less–I’m craving it.  This lent I plan on using THIS to guide my reflection and devotional time.

So, in order to really have the best Lent possible–both individually and as a family–I scoured the internet to find the best faith-building Lenten Activities for you and your family.  Lots of these actives are great for teaching the kids.  Other projects are better for adults, and full of different kinds of lessons.  I hope you find something here that works for you and pulls you deeper into this power and important season.

Have a very blessed Lent–and if you get a chance, please keep my little family in your prayers!

Walk with Jesus each day of Lent with this Print and Color Jesus Tree.
