A devotional box! Devotional books are great, but children will love this hands on approach to experiencing God.
Lent is the season of the church year during which we take the time to strengthen our relationship with God, as we follow Jesus down the long road to Jerusalem, where he will sacrifice his mortal life for us. During Lent, we also follow Jesus’ example of prayer and fasting. This devotional series walks through the 40 day and 7 Sunday journey of Lent by offering a number of introspective and interactive prayer experiences and scriptural exploration that will allow children and families to dig deeper into their faith together. Through this time of Conversations with God, families will engage in many different methods of talking to God, reigniting their prayer life as they learn some of the most important stories of our faith.
