Lenten Survival for Kids

Full Product Description

Written for 7-11 year olds, this playful guide appeals to kids who want to know more about what adults are telling them is a serious time. Without talking down to them, and challenging them to learn and do more, the following topics are explored in detail: What Lent Is, What Lent Definitely Is Not, 40 Days of Survival Tactics, and A Few Prayers and Practices - Only for Kids. From What Lent Definitely Is Not: People easily become confused on this subject. In fact, we're glad you are reading this book, because we want to set you, at least, straight. You can then please set others straight. Lent is not about "giving up" silly things. It is not about making sad faces to show how difficult life has suddenly become for you. (Need we start explaining how most of the world would think that giving up candy bars or soda for 40 days sounds just plain silly? According to Bread for the World, 925 million people around the world go hungry each day. So please don't talk about the terrible hardship you are undergoing by giving up M&M's and Coca-Cola for a few weeks.) So instead of focusing on what you may give up, take time to consider why you may do it.
You give stuff up for Lent because you want to become a better Christian. You are testing yourself - and allowing God to test you - to see if, by giving up something that maybe you are too focused on in everyday life, you can concentrate more on him.
