I have “given up” a few things during the Lent season the first was All carbonated beverages, then I gave up the salt shaker (in cooking/baking and at the table!) I also gave up Facebook the spring my Father-in-law passed away, I could have used the virtual support during that time but we made it…I have debated giving up chocolate and cheese, but those would not be much of a sacrifice since neither appeal to me. I like some of the other pass it along ideas. Thank you

I was looking for more ideas on what to give up for lent. As I was googling things I came across this page. I am just wondering if you know where the first picture you have posted about the across was taken. The reason I am is saying because I am pretty sure where it was taken and I live very close this location. Hope to hear back from you. Have a blessed day.

I think that is a great idea to give up eating after supper, and probably everyone could benefit from complaining less.

We all do the usual no chocolate, no crisps(sorry we’re English) no fizzy drinks etc etc. I think your pass it forward methodology is pure genius, I can’t wait to convince my two teenage daughters that this is a good idea! Now does any one want a load of teenager junk?

For example I fasted between meals and then donated the money I saved on snacks to a local organization that feeds children in need. I’ve also read books like Walking the Labrynth which includes reading one of the gospels from beginning to end. Another Discipline is spiritual journaling (Sprouting Spiritual Growth is a good book about this process and it includes reflection questions at the end of every chapter).
