40 Days Y’all – It Starts With Ash Wednesday – Lent 2019

This post may contain affiliate links.

Lent 2019 is here! What is Lent? Ash Wednesday? What is that? Why are you talking about this? 40 days, but isn’t there more than 40 days until Easter? Let’s chat.

I have been doing this Digital Mom Blog thing for 10 years now. Before Digital Mom Blog, I blogged on Blogspot and then had a few other blogs. All that said – I’ve been in the lifestyle blogger game for a while. This is my job, and you know what – after 10 years – this blog has morphed continually, much like myself.

Lent 2019 Experiment

LENT 2019 –  for the next 40 days, I’ll be doing something a bit different here. I’ll still have your regularly programmed randomness in regards to parenting, technology and geekery – but I’m going old school with some personal blogging. *gasp* remember when people use to do that?

Religion is Scary

Sorry folks, I don’t have any specific lent Instant Pot recipes (but I may because that is a brilliant idea, Molly!) but I will be talking about various aspects of the Lenten season, what lent is, how I am spending these 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter to reconnect with faith and what have you. Don’t worry friends, I am not here to throw Jesus on you. And the intent is to not scare you away because believe me I KNOW – religion is scary. Again, yes I’ll be writing about lent but also faith, family and things that I have gravitated away from. 

Lent as an Ex-Catholic

P.S. I am not Catholic. I am an ex-Catholic, raised Catholic (dunked, confessioned, communioned and confirmed but nope no longer a Catholic) – I just say I am a Christian. More importantly than Christian – I’m just a girl that loves Jesus and wants to love like Jesus. Religion can get so hairy. But one practice that I’ve kept in place from being raise Catholic – is Lent. I use this season for something and this year – part of my 40 days is writing here. 

These posts are mainly for me. If this isn’t for you, fear not – as mentioned, I’ll still have the regular Digital Mom Blog posts. I am holding myself accountable to do this as part of my 2019 Lent experience. 

Not a Theology Expert – Just a Human Who Blogs

I am going to say that I am sure that theologically speaking – I am going to get stuff wrong. And in the spirit of Jesus and grace, let’s just remember that. This little experiment and 40 day experience is personal not journalistic. Your opinions may vary from mine and rightfully so. I am an open-minded person but will say – trolls aren’t welcome. I’ve been around the internet too long to understand the whole troll thing and nope, no time for that.

You’ve Got to LOL – Humor 

LOL is life. If you know me, I have to find a way to LOL.  I can’t do anything without some type of humor (mostly being very stupid humor) – I’ll somehow roll some humor into this Lent blog. Which I am sure someone will call sacrilegious, blasphemous, sinful or whatever. Good news, along with other things – I gave up caring what people think about what I write. Hopefully this will stick around longer than just for the Lent season.

These topics may change but this gives me a little guide on what to write about. So don’t freak out if these change (they will change, just sayin.)
