Lent has begun!!! Are you struggling to get 'motivated' or 'do you lack ideas'? Well, today's theme is for you then. Below you will find 7 ideas we've used and all of them have worked really well for us. Maybe one will work for you? Maybe not, but the important thing to remember about Lent is that it is meant to be a time for personal spiritual growth. You have to do or NOT do what seems to be the right thing for YOU. If you don't like my ideas...I don't really care, but what I do care about is that you grow this Lent. That's is what God wants!
This book has really simple wording and works well with young children who are antsy and just need 'simple'.
Breakfast- We'll do breakfast for dinner...AKA Brinner...at least 2 times during Lent. We love quiche. We love waffles, pancakes and french toast casserole. As well as egg sandwiches. YUM! I'm hungry!
Here are some of our other well used meals: 1.Salmon or some other sort of fish (we aren't huge fish lovers, so I usually do one night of fish and then another Friday with a shrimp pasta with veggies-the kids LOVE both of these).
2. Bean Burritos-simple
3. Cheese or Veggie Pizza- or BOTH because each time we order pizza we need 3 larges. I usually save this for a busy Friday night. Like during Irish dance/St. Patricks day parades and shows.
4. Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup. Great for a chilly night.
GET THEE THERE! ; )Lastly, just want to say even if you make a small change and you're successful with that you have made Our Lord so proud. We are each at a different place in this spiritual journey. May God bless each effort you make. And may God bring you and your family closer to Him by uniting you to His suffering this Lent.
