Three years ago I wrote a blog post called the 20 Things to Give up for Lent. The post went viral. We had more than 1,000,000 hits on our church website over the course of two days. The response was phenomenal.
I took that blog post and added twenty more things to the list. So 20 Things to Give up for Lent became 40 Things to Give up for Lent. I also created a mailing list and sent out a daily devotion during the 40 Days of Lent based upon the 40 things in that list. The mailing list exceeded 10,000 subscribers. The following year, I published the 40 Things Devotion as a book that was made available on Amazon and other places.
This is not ordinary list. It is not the typical things like chocolate and soda. These are things that are truly worth giving up and not just for Lent, but for the rest of your life. We are just over a week away from the beginning of the season of Lent. Hop on over to greaterthings.today to check it out or pick up a copy of the book. It is available at Paperback or Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks.
