Today is the actual middle-point of Lent! How are your resolutions going? Did you give up something or commit to add some prayer or good works? Sometimes we can slip a little but we can always start over and recommit for the remaining three weeks of Lent! Maybe you need a little Lenten Momentum?
I really enjoy making tools and crafts to help all of us dig deeper in prayer either through prayer journaling or Hands-On Crafts to help little ones engage in classic devotions. I actually have a craft kit called Hands-On Lenten Pack of Prayers which includes paper templates for kids to assemble and color and count their prayers as they recite the Rosary, the Stations of the Cross and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. The Rosary Abacus and the Stations of the Cross Abacus with Divine Mercy Novena are also helpful for prayer time with little ones!
Many of our uniquely illustrated craft kits have templates that are perfect for making custom votive candles for our prayer spaces and prayer times.
We’ve also developed a number of tools for prayer-journaling including over 80 Consecration, Accountability, Signature, Saint, Prayer and Journal stamps in the Prayer Impressions Journal Stamp Shop.
Our prayer journaling craft kits offer prompts and prayers that can be printed at home and used to customize any dollar store notebook into a unique prayer journal, just for you!
These stamps and prayer prompts and hands-on crafts really work for me and my family, but you might be looking for a simpler way to refocus your Lenten resolutions. I recommend the 5 Minute Sacrifice for Lent by Sara Estabrooks at ToJesusSincerely.com.
