Downloadable Lenten Meditation Books

Did Lent sneak up on you again this year? Don’t worry, you are not alone 🙂

We put together a list of Lenten meditation books available as ebooks, so you can take advantage of your Ash Wednesday motivation and get started on your Lenten reading goals before the ashes cool. Even when Ash Wednesday has come and gone, remember, it is never to late to start a routine to improve your spiritual life. God has a soft spot for procrastinators 😉

The links will take you to Amazon.com where you can check out a few pages of each book to get a better idea of which one is right for your journey.

If you are interested in some more extensive Lenten reading and discussion, check out our book club!

All of these books can be read using a Kindle device, or the free Kindle Reading “app” which can be downloaded here for your smartphone, tablet, or even your home computer.

Bring Lent to Life: Activities and Reflections for Your Family

This book takes the family week by week through Lent with an “Easter Tree.” It’s a great idea for kids who may still be miffed at you for taking down the Christmas tree, and it will give you a tool to help them connect the spiritual similarities between Advent and Lent.
