Grace Changes Everything: A Lenten Gift for You {day sixteen}

Lent offers us a period of quiet during the six-week journey to Easter. The past couple of years I've begun each of the 47 days of Lent with a few minutes of reflection and prayer and a reading from a devotional booklet.

 If you, too, are looking for a quiet, contemplative way to connect with God on a daily basis during this coming Lent, may I offer you Grace Changes Everything?

I collaborated with my church and with Lincoln artist Deb Paden to create this devotional booklet, and I'm so glad to be able to offer it here at Graceful, too, as a small gift in gratitude for you. Will you join me in walking together through Lent this year?

The booklet includes:
  • A short Bible reading, with suggestions for a longer Scripture reading if you have the time.
  • One short devotional for each day of the six weeks of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding on Easter Sunday.
  • A prayer or action item for the day that may help you live out God's word in your everyday.

Michelle, how cool! I'm subscribing so I won't miss the devotional, but I'll probably de-subscribe after that. I like my inbox clean.

I don't see a link to the devotional itself. I already receive your posts in my RSS feeder, but the most recent one reads:

I am excited that you are able to share this with so many.  God is using your words to influence the world...

Michelle DeRusha  – (February 16, 2012 at 10:23 AM)  

Uh oh...I completely puzzled, Connie. I get the Graceful posts in my email, and the link was working there today. Not sure what's happening with the RSS feed...I'll look into that. In the meantime, I will email you the link!

I am downloading as I type.  I have been looking for resources for my lenten journey and nothing please me more than to read something written by you. Thank you.  Actually my post today on my  blog has lists some other lenten resources.

Need to catch up with you. we've both been so buried in so much stuff -- GOOD stuff, but filling in the minutes, let alone the days.  Am still hoping to meet you some day.  Let me know when you are available and I'll do anything I can to pop your direction.  You are blessed and a blessing.

Charity Singleton  – (February 16, 2012 at 8:59 PM)  

Very excited about this, Michelle. What a beautiful gift.

Connie@raise your eyes  – (February 16, 2012 at 10:50 PM)  

Now I have it, thank you! So many will be blessed and draw nearer to GOD through your writing Michelle.

Oh, yay. I can do Lent with the wisdom of Michelle. I'm anxious. Can we start right now? ;-) 

We Baptist kids, we're like fish on a Thursday during Lent.

 I really want to reply to this, but one hardly knows what to say.

Lyla Lindquist  – (February 21, 2012 at 8:06 PM)  

That's the best that you can do? C'mon, Nancy. Give it the ol' college try.
