In the past my husband and I have given something up for Lent to share in the suffering of Christ. We have given up Starbucks, TV, sweets, etc. Instead of giving something up this year, our family decided to spend the season of Lent focused on memorizing scripture. By studying God’s word we are drawn deeper into our relationship with Him. We are seeking to memorize passages from the book of 1 John. This week here is our focus.
1 John 1
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and with our hands, which we have touched- this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.”
To help our kids memorize scripture we are doing actions, saying it by repeating after each other, also trying to say it on a daily basis.
What does your family do during the season of Lent?
