Week Five:

Reflection: Second Peter 1: 5-7
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, devotion with mutual affection, mutual affection with love.

Action: This week challenge yourself and simplify, simplify, simplify! Stuff breeds stuff, which multiplies into more stuff, which buries us in material things and weighs our spirit down. Keep track of “things” you didn’t buy but were tempted to and at end of Lenten period, donate the $$$ to your favorite charity (or church!). Donate a minimum of 40 household items/clothing that you no longer need/use. Bonus: try a buy-nothing challenge.
