Lent Comes to Reawaken Us

February 17, 2021

Our hearts long for Lent. We long for the transformation that we know we are capable of. Christ calls us to come closer to His heart during this season.

In this episode, Lorissa shares some beautiful ways we can walk with Christ in the desert both as a family and on our own.

And when we have chosen the ways we’re going to draw near to the Lord, whether that’s giving something up or adding a spiritual practice, Lorissa shares how our brains will likely throw a toddler tantrum trying to get us to give up. Find out what you can do to combat this voice!

Hello, my friends, and welcome to episode 16 of Made For Greatness. I am your host today, Lorissa Horn and we are about to jump into all things lent. So let’s do this. First of all, Pope Francis has, is a beautiful quote. I love it. Where he says, “Lent, comes to reawaken us.” Ah, that is so beautiful. Lent comes to reawaken us. Lent comes to shake us up to reorient us and point us in the direction of Christ to kind of turn us away from the things of this world and to help us put our focus back on the things of God. This is such a beautiful time. And I think all of us, I’m sure every one of us that’s listening to this podcast right now, longs for lent, in some ways, even the link can be hard and it’s challenging. It’s kind of all about the desert and its prayer and sacrifice almsgiving and fasting all of those things.


Lorissa Horn & Sterling Jaquith

Sterling and Lorissa are very different moms. Lorissa lives in town, her family loves playing baseball, and she’s proud to send them to Catholic school. Sterling lives in the country, her family loves camping, and she unschools the kids.

The thing these women have in common, an unyielding devotion to Christ. Seriously, if you hang out with either of them, they’re gonna talk about Jesus, a lot. He’s the center of their life.
