The Jesus Tree – Lent
What is Lent?
Lent is a special time of year. It leads us right up to Easter and helps us focus on Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Many people choose to give up something for Lent, to help them remember Jesus giving up his life for us on the cross. Others practice Lent by doing something kind for people every day. There are many ideas for making Lent a wonderful time with your family.
What is The Jesus Tree?
The Jesus Tree is one of those wonderful ideas I just mentioned! I’ve put together a set of 48 daily devotions for your family to use during this season of Lent. Included each day is a story from Jesus’ life, a scripture reading, a discussion question, and a prayer. These devotions can be made into ornaments to hang on a tree, or an Easter garland, or wherever you like! Your family will learn all about Jesus’ life – from birth to resurrection. Watch your family’s faith grow as The Jesus Tree grows!
How To Use The Jesus Tree Family Devotions
On the first day of Lent (Ash Wednesday), read the first story in The Jesus Tree book. Children can turn to the scripture passage in their Bible if they are old enough. Discuss the question(s) in the Talk About section and read the prayer with the children. Do this every day during the season of Lent, in numerical order, finishing up on Easter Monday.
*You can also encourage the children to lead the Jesus Tree devotions with your family.*
