The countdown to Lent is on! Wednesday marks one week until Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of Lent (the season leading up to Easter). As a homeschool mom, I’ve really been trying to gear up and get going with activities, ideas, crafts, and prayers that will prepare all of us for this penitential time and ultimately, Resurrection (Easter) Sunday. The good news is, I have found a ton of great resources. The hard part will come in keeping it simple and staying organized. I hope to share some the ideas in the coming weeks. For now, I wanted to post a few other goodies I ran across in my Lenten prep search. Like this life-affirming book called: “The Preborn Christ-A Story of God in the Womb”
It’s available on Amazon for as low as $9.35. You can also read it for free in eBook form here. I suspect I will also be spending some time on the website The Catholic Home-Schoolers Bookshelf. Great material available! In terms of Lent-specific things, we are definitely participating in “Holy Heroes” again this year. The best part is, it’s free! Click here for more info.
