Friends, I have a couple quick things to share with you. Two free resources I love and know you will love too.
First, my friends Mike and Kristin Berry, of Confessions of an Adoptive Parent, have something fantastic starting tomorrow. They are hosting The Hope Summit, a free online event, which takes place over the next ten days, featuring interviews with ten people sharing their stories of hope. I’m honored to be one of those ten!
Read more about The Hope Summit or go directly to the Registration Page. I registered yesterday and can’t wait to watch each interview.
Another quick thing. Tomorrow is the first day of Lent. If you observe Lent, you know what I’m talking about. If you have never observed Lent, and would like to learn more, or if you would simply like to add structure to your daily Bible reading, I’m following a reading plan from my friends at She Reads Truth.
You may remember last year I read through the Bible in a year with a free reading plan created by She Reads Truth.I use the app on my phone to read my daily readings. The Bible in a Year, is a free reading plan and there are numerous other free plans.
This year’s Lent reading plan is either $1.99 or $2.99, I can’t remember. As I was looking up links to write this post, I noticed you can read the daily readings for free on your computer or even have them delivered to your inbox if you prefer that format rather than on your phone.
The daily Bible reading is followed by a short devotional. This morning I read the simple explanation of the meaning of Lent to my kids as they ate breakfast. While I grew up observing Lent, they have not. I don’t intend to implement big changes, I just want to begin reflecting on this season leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus. What does this mean for us as Christians? How can we reflect upon these days?
I didn’t want today to slip away without sharing both of those resources with you! The Hope Summit and She Reads Truth – both free blessings. Both from people I respect. Both resources enriching my life. I hope you find them helpful too.
Have a fabulous day, friend.
