Ah, Lent. The lovely time when we Catholics choose to intentionally suffer for a whole 40 days, in order to draw closer to our suffering Savior, Jesus. A lot can happen in those 40 days, but usually, it goes a little something like this:
It all starts with Mardi Gras. . . also known as “Fat Tuesday.” If you’re anything like me, you deck out and go ham on all the prepackaged junk food. In other words, you eat a bunch of Hawaiian rolls in your car on the way home from the grocery store (based on a true story. I regret nothing). You then quickly realize that this means it is time to officially decide what you are committing to this Lent.
I’m a Southern, curly haired, red head usually watching The Office or scrolling through memes on Instagram till 1 am (tag me in some quality memes @emilyclareburt). My life flipped upside down when God called me to move from South Carolina to Arizona and it has been the best adventure of my life. When I’m not goofing around the Life Teen Mesa office, you can find me thrifting, jamming to Odesza or The Neighbourhood, raving about my 3 younger brothers, or trying to figure out this whole adult thing. St. Peter the Apostle, pray for us!
