Lent is right around the corner. Nannet Horton offers us 5 steps to prepare our hearts for Lent.

The Triduum in Domestic Church

“No doubt there will be great comfort and grace in uniting with the universal Church by watching the Triduum liturgies streamed or televised. But, in the spirit of the truths of our faith mentioned above, consider planning some rituals of your own this Holy Week, rooted in the liturgies.” In this special blog post, The Well’s Kristi Quinlan provides families with activities to bring the beauty of the Triduum and Easter Sunday into our homes.

An Invitation to Intimacy with God

“Relational prayer is an invitation to intimacy with God. There is a deep desire to be known as a person and an earnest thirst for God Himself. For Christians, intimacy with God is possible.” Nanett Horton shares this testimony on how relational prayer deepened her intimacy with God during the Well’s first virtual Hour of Power.

The Well’s Lenten Family Soup Suppers Series: Week 2

Tortilla soup and living water are the features of Week 2 of the Lenten Family Soup Suppers Series. When Jesus asks us for something, it’s often because he wants to give us something better. What is “the drink” he’s asking from you?

The Well’s Lenten Family Soup Suppers Series: Week 1

Join The Well this Lent as we share a simple idea for making Lenten Fridays something different from ordinary Fridays. Each week we will post a simple meatless soup recipe accompanied by a question for you to reflect on while cooking. We will also post a family discussion question to get your family sharing about faith over dinner. Recipes and questions will be posted on Monday to give you plenty of time to prepare for Friday! During this first full week of Lent, we share a recipe for broccoli cheese soup.
