Lent is a wonderful season during our liturgical year to share the concepts of prayer, fasting and almsgiving with our children.  Consider as a family how you might help others in need by giving of your time or resources.  Even very young children can understand and will enjoy participating in the process.  As a mother, carve out time in your day for your own special prayer time.  This may involve early rising or time spent away from a favorite hobby or activity.  We invite you to share your suggestions, ideas and Lenten devotions.  Emai lisa@catholicmom.com with your submissions.
