On Friday on twitter my friend Kayla who blogs at The Alluring World asked if anyone was hosting a Lenten Practices Link-Up. We couldn’t find anyone that was so she decided to host it herself! So here goes my version of my Lenten Practices for Lent 2012.
- Spend LESS time on Social Media – I feel like I am ALWAYS on Twitter and Facebook and I never get any blogging, cleaning, organizing, or praying done! During Lent I am going to limit my time on SM in order to be more productive.
- Write the 5 Guest Posts I have been putting off written and submitted to the prospective bloggers!
- Read Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving by Kevin Perrotta (I’m reading this book as part of an online bookstudy if your interested let me know and you can join in on the conversation!)
This is all I have so far. As LENT goes on I’m sure I will think of some more ideas. My friend Alli shared this blog post with me over the weekend on unusual Lenten Practices. As I read through the list the usual things came up of facebook, and tv but then some very interesting practices made the cut. My favorites are: the snooze button (omg talk about hard), forks (using chopsticks instead), and your BED (sleeping on floor in sleeping bag, outdoors in tents, or couches! Really makes you think about what we are doing for LENT!
Hopefully I will get a lot out of this Lent and ACCOMPLISH most of my tasks. What are you doing for Lent?

Once in highschool a friend gave up her pillow. I thought it was odd, yet awesome at the same time. That book sounds perfect for Lent, since it’s all about the three Pillars!

Yeah the pillow was on the list of odd things on the link. I thought it was strange too but still a good discipline. Yeah I haven’t started reading it yet but it sounds good and look forward to what others write about! Thanks for hosting the link-up!
Catholic Icing and Equipping Catholic Families should have a Lent Link up. I will hop on over to Kayla’s to check it out. Have a Blessed Lenten journey!

Thanks! I love reading about what others do for lent. It really helps me focus my efforts better. I like reading about it b/c some people don’t like to share about it out loud like it’s “bragging”
Those sound like good goals, I know it’s easy to get sucked into social media. I liked the unique Lent sacrifices–I would be giving up food if I gave up forks!
