Live Life

Prior to college, I never celebrated Lent. To be honest, I always thought it was just a Catholic thing. I recently switched churches here at school and started attending an Anglican church. It has been a great experience seeing worship in such a reverent setting compared to the very casual church I’m used to back home. I am still learning a lot about the church and its traditions, but I decided to do Lent this year. I was unsure of what to do or give up, until I talked to my friend Mackenzie yesterday. Mackenzie invited me to join her as she is doing World Vision’s “Live Life” campaign.
Each week of Lent, we will be participating in a challenge hosted by World Vision. Here is the break down:
I am so excited to see how God is going to grow me through these challenges leading up to the celebration of His death and resurrection!
Will you join me?

I am SO the same way. I always thought those rituals like Ash Wed were such Catholic things...but it's amazing how the sacredness of many of these traditions can bring you back to the awe and reverence of God! thanks girl!

This is EXACTLY what I needed! I wanted some kind of structured focus - thanks! Hope school has been going great, and happy valentine's! - Lex
