Starting with Ash Wednesday, An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on Giving includes weekly devotionals, activity pages, and coloring pages for families to use together as they journey through Lent.
An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on Giving invites families to focus on the different types of giving. Using Jesus’ teaching, children will reflect on why we give, what we give and the power of our gifts. Each week explores a different form of giving and the impact our gifts have on those around us.
This is also a fantastic resource for churches to buy as a resource to give to their families or to use in an all-ages small group/Bible study setting. We have over 60 denominations who use our materials, so we're confident that our materials work in a variety of different theological settings and contexts.
When you purchase An Illustrated Lent for Families, you will receive:
- Family Devotionals: Seven weeks of family devotionals that are simple but meaningful. The seven devotionals focus on scripture passages for our theme. Each devotional includes a brief reflection, discussion questions, an activity, and a prayer for each week.
- Special Ash Wednesday Labyrinth Meditation: We also include a special meditation using a labyrinth for Ash Wednesday.
- Activity Pages: These activity pages help give families and participants concrete things to do to engage with the theme during Lent.
- Coloring Pages: Seven coloring pages tie in with the weekly scripture and activity.
Looking for additional resources? Consider purchasing Generous Giving Lenten Devotional if you'd like a great resource for youth, college students, and adults of all ages. It comes in both a text-only edition and an illustrated edition, which is like an interactive hybrid devotional/coloring book and uses the same scripture/theme as this family resource.
