Ash Wednesday:

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth; Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

Lent is upon us. What will you be fasting from, or taking on? I hope everyone has a truly blessed Lenten season, and really focuses on what this is all about. It is a true testament of Faith. Steven and I are doing things individually, but every year we take things on and fast from things as a family as well. I think this is such a powerful thing to do as a family, and I feel it really strengthens our relationship not only with each other, but our relationship with God in our marriage. God has always been the center of our relationship, and I hope to always instill that relationship with him into Charli's life as well!

Happy Lent! :)


  1. Love this post! And I love your idea of doing something as a family. I'm going to talk to Jarrod about that tonight. Thanks!

  2. If you have any good meatless meals for Fridays I would love to see them! I have a hard time cooking without meat, so it's a lot of grilled cheese and quesadillas for us! I attempted tillapia today and it was not wonderful :-/
