Listen to Bloomtown Faith
Our faith journey is all about being connected to God. Our Heavenly Father loves us; he knows us and he wants us to know him. But a long time ago, Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden and sin entered the world. That sin separated us from God. That is, until God sent his son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. Now, BECAUSE OF JESUS we can be reunited with God through our relationship with Jesus. When we make a decision to accept God’s gift of salvation and become a Jesus follower, we reconnect with God and enjoy the abundant life he gives.
Have you been wondering what Lent is all about? Have you thought about introducing your family to this sacred season as a way to prepare your hearts for Easter? Whether you’ve observed Lent before or not, the Gather & Grow Lent/Easter season devotional, BECAUSE OF JESUS will guide your family through life-changing conversations about God’s love for us and what it means to follow Jesus.
Through these six, simple lessons (which follow our 5 & Thrive Bible study method), you can lead your children toward the cross – whether they are 3 or 13! It is my goal to provide simple faith tools that help your family grow so this 12 page ebook is free to subscribers as my way of saying welcome to the community!
The devotional will teach your family about Lent and help you find ways to observe the season that work for you. Each weekly devotion can take as little as 10 minutes and includes:
- Bible verse
- Discussion questions
- Big take-away
- Truth in action idea
