Tending the Garden of our Hearts: Family Meditations for Great Lent is a daily podcast offering readings and stories and lessons for every day of Great Lent and Holy Week. Children are invited to listen with their parents, and to use the questions at the end to start a family conversation on the day’s theme! Families who prefer to read aloud can download the PDF of the day’s reading to print and read at home. More information, including ideas for related crafts and activities, are available at tending-the-garden.com. Presented by Elissa Bjeletich and Kristina Wenger.
