Are you looking for a daily Lenten resource for teens that meets them right where they are in life?
Husband-and-wife youth ministry experts Katie Prejean McGrady and Tommy McGrady offer realistic and engaging spiritual guidance for Lent that includes timely topics for teens such as relationships, being your best, competition, control, fear, and forgiveness.
The simple format of Lent: One Day at a Time for Catholic Teens offers depth without complexity and direction without pressure. Each daily devotion is based on a Bible passage that connects with a topic important to teens. A brief reflection helps readers consider the day’s topic through the lens of faith.
Unlike many other Lenten prayer books, each day offers exercises and activities to help teens grow closer to Christ. Optional activities in “Feel Ambitious?” invite teens to read, reflect, and respond to a longer scripture passage that connects to the day’s theme.
Another unique feature is that on Sundays, the McGradys ask teens to choose one spiritual challenge from a short list to focus on throughout the week. Saturdays provide a simple method to reflect and examine how well they did with their Lenten prayer and practices during the previous week.
