More than anything: Love. What does it mean to love like Jesus? How do we challenge ourselves to change the way we think of love? We strive to love our neighbor. But what does that truly mean and how can we live that out in the world? How do we extend the kind of love, honor, and respect we want for our family to both friend and stranger alike?

Rather than viewing this Lenten season as a time to do without, our hope is to provide you daily reminders that will both inspire and challenge you to take action and grow closer to Jesus. To grow in your love of God and your neighbor, these posts provide a foundation for a positive and spiritual experience. 

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.
