Lent is a form of preparation in certain religions starting on Ash Wednesday and lasting through almost Easter Sunday by praying and repenting. During this time, many commit to giving up something as a form of fasting.

The #DoingLentTogether campaign states, “Words are powerful and they have consequences. They can declare love and life or deliver discouragement and defeat.”
