An Illustrated Lent for Families: This is My Body
Note: This is a digital product. No physical product will be shipped to you.
An Illustrated Lent for Families: This is My Body explores how Jesus lived in his body on earth and invites us to take care of—and embrace the goodness of—our own bodies. Each week highlights a different story from Jesus’ life and connects it to shared human experiences—like growing up, taking naps, or drinking water. By engaging with these stories through a broad lens of embodiment, This is My Body seeks to inspire curiosity, wonder, and awe in all ages.
We hope this Lenten family resource will help you share in conversation about how God came to be human and live among us.
What you will receive:
- Seven Family Devotions: Weekly family devotions include a suggested scripture to read, a short reflection, discussion questions, an activity, a fun fact, and a prayer.
- Coloring & Activity Pages: We also include coloring and activity pages for the different week's devotions.
Ways to use:
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 Lent boxes you might be putting together to send home to families. One could also adapt it to use for a Sunday School program.
