Starting with Ash Wednesday, An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on Prayer 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 Prayer invites families to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of prayer during the Lenten season. By exploring different Gospel passages of Jesus engaged in prayer, families will be encouraged to learn new ways to expand and enrich their experiences of prayer, individually, as a family, and in community.
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: There are seven coloring pages that tie in with both the weekly scripture and activity.
