Episode 12: A Hobbit's Guide to Lent


This week, I’m joined once again by my husband Alex for tea and a little chat about Lent. I wanted to share some ways I’ve been inspired and encouraged by the journeys of Frodo and Sam and how I’m planning to carry some of these ideas along with me through Lent. I hope you’ll find one or two of these ideas useful!

A Hobbit’s Guide to Lent

  • stop wearing shoes (ok fine you can wear sandals)

  • get rid of stuff

  • sleep less comfortably

  • walk instead of drive, when you can

  • eat more Lembas

  • enjoy meals slowly and with good company

  • drink water only

  • carry your friends when they need you

  • let go of Your Precious
