While it’s still fresh in my mind, I want to give a strong recommendation for Ann Voskamp’s Trail to the Tree. It’s a beautiful meditation on the road to Easter, to be done over 17 days in Lent. We enjoyed it so much.
Each day has a reproduction of a classical painting (which I had FedEx print, and then I cut them out and glued them on construction paper), a passage of scripture, a prayer, and a suggestion for a way to put the words into practice. Initially, I read each day’s meditation over dinner and the children took turns hanging the art. When I lost my voice, the older children took turns reading. This is very accessible, and some of twists that took us from scripture to application were just beautiful.
Consider downloading it now and putting it away for next year, so you’ll have it ready. You’ll be glad you did.
