LENT FOR FAMILIES: What is it? What's included?
Our Illustrated Lent for Families is an opportunity for families to take time each week during Lent to be intentional and focus on their faith. You'll receive seven weekly family devotions and coloring and activity pages.

Who is it for?
Most churches will purchase this and give it to families in their community. It's also great for individual families to purchase and use on their own. We've also had churches with intergenerational Lenten programming use it for multi-age gatherings.

An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on Fasting invites families to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of fasting. By exploring Gospel passages about fasting, families will reflect on why we fast and how we can choose to fast from many different things than just food. Each week explores a different form of fasting and the impact it can have on how we see ourselves, God, and the world.

What You Will Receive

  • Seven Family Devotions: Seven weeks of family devotions that are simple but meaningful. The seven devotions focus on scripture passages for our theme, and each week includes a brief reflection, discussion questions, an activity, and a prayer.
  • Special Ash Wednesday Labyrinth Meditation: We also include a special meditation using a labyrinth for Ash Wednesday.
  • Activity & Coloring Pages: Coloring pages tie in with both the weekly scripture and activity, and activity pages give participants concrete things to do during Lent to engage with the theme.

How You Can Use It

Churches often purchase this and send it home with parents to use during Lent. An Illustrated Lent for Families also makes a great addition to any Lenten materials you might be putting together to send home to families. One could also adapt it for a Sunday School or multigenerational programming.
