What Should you Actually Give up for Lent?


Just in case you haven’t picked something to give up for Lent, here are some helpful sites! 😉

Take a BuzzFeed quiz here (because we all know that BuzzFeed quizzes are a valid way to make life choices).

And if that doesn’t do it for you, here are a ideas from teens!

“This year I’m giving up shoes as often as possible. I’ll still wear shoes if I’m doing a work project or if I have to fly on a plane. But I’m going to avoid going to places that require shoes.” – Paul

“I gave up spoons and forks. I learned to use chopsticks. It was funny for my friends and made it easy to talk about Lent in a way that people were cool with. We laughed a lot.” – Matt

“One year for Lent I wrote a letter each day. I made a list of 40 people who have touched my life in one way or another. Each day of Lent, I wrote a person on the list a letter of thanks for how they touched my life and I prayed for that person on that day… it was a wonderful experience!” – Patty

“I didn’t do this, but last year two of my friends gave up warm water for their showers.” – Maria

“I’ve never done it, but I’ve heard of people giving up the snooze button on their alarm clock. They said that it was harder than they thought, but it taught them a lot about discipline.” – Jessica
