Wonderful Addition for Lent

I use several Leten devotionals and really like this one for its focus on the poor of the world and opportunity for prayer and almsgiving. I also like the recipes and encouragement to fast. We are having a rare snow day and I plan to make the Nicaraguan meal tonight. My 21 year old son just spent his week long school break down there helping build a house for a family with nothing. Except peace, joy and love. There is so much I need to learn. Thanks for helping.

Great accountability!!

This is such a great tool to keep me focused on Lent and on sacrifice for Jesus. Thanks CRS for making it fun and easy to fit into my day. Thanks for asking the tough questions and helping to out into a dollar figure each sacrifice. I would recommend this to anyone who has trouble staying focused during Lent!

Rice bowl prayer

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get closer to God and for a daily prayer to read. It is a nice, fast way to get your daily prayers in and to remind us to give a little to others rather than always to just ourselves. I have really enjoyed the mobile app.
