Ideas for Lent Graphic

Depth Podcast Episode 120: Ideas for Lent — Jodi Rosser

Listen now:

Do you give something up for Lent each year? I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember fasting for Lent while growing up. 

About five years ago, a friend recommended a book to me called *Zip it by Karen Ehman and it was about giving up unkind and hurtful words for Lent. I loved that idea because at the time, I was really struggling with keeping control of my words. After that, I decided I wanted to do something each year for Lent.

I am so excited to share with you some of the ideas over the years. One of my favorite books for Lent is *40 Days of Decrease by Dr. Alicia Brit Chole. I am so excited because she is going to be on the podcast later this year. She is releasing a new book, so she was not able to come on before Lent, but she has generously offered to send two signed copies of her amazing book, *40 Days of Decrease. I am super excited for two people to win a copy of this book before Lent, because this book was a favorite for me! So on the podcast this week, I want to highlight *40 Days of Decrease and share some of my favorite parts as well as share about two others books that I did for Lent: *Zip it and *Draw the Circle.

Also, I am so excited for two people to each win one copy of Dr. Alicia’s book: *40 Days of Decrease. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at or you can click this direct link:
