We’re talking all things Lent today with our good friend Bonnie Engstrom, blogger at A Knotted Life. We talk about how we approach lent in general, simple ways to help our young kids learn about Lent, how to focus a bit more on prayer as a family, as well as fitting in confession when the kids should be in bed.
We cover a lot of ground while laughing a lot so we think this will help ease any Lent-stress you may be feeling as Ash Wednesday looms around the corner.
