Ash Wednesday is fast approaching! Are you ready for Lent? What are you planning to do and/or give up to grow closer to the Lord?
Many people choose to give up social media for Lent. It’s a time stealer for most, a place of too much negativity and comparing for others, and for some a constant distraction from the people around them and the life they are meant to live.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know there are many benefits to social media, but what could giving up Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, or (fill-in-the-blank) do for you? Would it provide you with more time to pray? Encourage you to interact with friends and family in a more personal and substantial way? Help you feel less stress and get more sleep?
Whatever the case, if you choose to give up social media this Lent I know one thing that can help you make it the full 40 days (46 if you include Sundays):
TELLING OTHERS YOUR GOAL.
One really easy way to do this – Post your goal on social media! Not only will this help keep you accountable to your goal but it might even inspire others to join you as well!
Below are a number of images you are more than welcome to use this Lent.
If you want to link back to this page or give Catholic Religion Teacher a little shout out, I’d much appreciate it! (but no pressure to do so)
Here’s to a happy and holy Lent!
