I don’t know if anyone else runs into this problem as Lent rolls around, but my family members sometimes have a hard time deciding on what things to add or give up during Lent. Or, even worse, sometimes we decide what we’re going to do, and then we slide on those things as the season of Lent continues on and busy lives make us less than diligent. To help combat that, I created a Lent planning page printable (with three versions).
One thing that I liked about the printable is that it is just as appropriate for an adult to use it as it is for a child to use it. So, if you or your children are struggling with planning out how to make Lent more meaningful this year, print out a copy (or two or three or more!).
This printable tells a little about Lent and different areas that are important to Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving or service.
I made three slightly different versions of this printable. One version has the explanation and a heading for each of the three areas. The other two versions also feature ideas for things that someone might do in that area. The reason that I made two versions is because I know that both Catholics and many denominations of Protestants observe Lent. I wanted to have a version that had some Catholic-specific prayer suggestions, and then another one that gave other suggestions that were not Catholic-specific in the prayer area.
When you download the printable, you will receive a three page document that includes all of the versions. Just pick the page you prefer and print only that one.
