How do I talk to my kids about Lent?

Director of Children and Family Ministries, Julie Hawkins, walks us through some ways to help our kids participate in the Lenten season in this episode of the Life + God Podcast. Lent and Easter can be difficult concepts for kids to grasp, and it's important to reach them on an age appropriate level. Listen to some tips from Julie and access additional resources below.
