The idea of Lent has always intrigued me. I remember seeing friends at school give up chocolate for the 40 days before Easter. Last year, I did some research on Lent. It is so much more than just not eating your favorite treat. It is a time to rededicate your life. I have decided to participate in my own Lent this year. Now, before my family gets concerned, let me put them at ease. I am a very happy Mormon girl. I love expressing my Christian faith through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But like everybody else here on Earth, I’ve got a few weaknesses that would benefit from more self-reflection. I’m looking forward to spending the days before Easter giving up my own favorite things and spending a few more minutes praying and reading scriptures. I thought about giving up chocolate, but we just made these delicious brownies.
