More about our seven-week Lent Study Tool:
  • Our Lent Study Tool has seven weekly devotionals and is designed to be read one time per week starting Wednesday, February 17th
  • Each week you’ll journey through themes guiding us to "release" in order to "retain". Our author's heart was led to encourage you not to simply “give something up” during this season, but instead, RELEASE (perfectionism, comparison, doubt, control) in order to RETAIN (the true and living Word of God that ultimately defines you).


What is the purpose of Lent?  

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (a Holy day of prayer and fasting) and concludes on Easter (the celebration of our Risen Savior). Lent is a 40-day time of dedicated prayer and fasting. It’s a sacrificial space. As I prepared to help cultivate this tool, I found throughout my research that many describe Lent as a time of repentance. Others describe the time as a reflection of the 40-days Jesus spent in the desert, after being baptized by John the Baptist. I appreciated both viewpoints and asked God to allow me to use both perspectives as we grow during this time. 

Throughout college days, I would hear, see, and often participate in “giving something up” for Lent. I would give up coffee or music until Easter, and well... that was it. I would pick right back up where I left off on Easter Day, sipping my coffee or listening to whatever genre of music I had missed the most. I want to highlight that this was honestly where my spiritual growth and understanding was at the time, (and that is okay). 

Today, through the given wisdom of the Holy Spirit, I would like to reclaim the meaning and depth of Lent. My heart is led to encourage you not to simply “give something up” during this season, but instead, RELEASE in order to RETAIN

As we continue to navigate life through a global pandemic, that none of us would have ever imagined would take over our lives in the way that it has, we must realize none of this was a surprise to God. He sees each of us individually, and He is calling us to continue expanding the Kingdom of Heaven during this time. 


The Charge - This season of Lent will be different from any other. Whether Lent is new to you, or something you have done all of your life, this year we are seeking God’s face with a different position of the heart. With a heart ready and willing to release our lives at the feet of the Savior, for His will to be done. Before starting the next seven weeks of prayer and fasting, highlight something/several things in your life that you believe are hindering you from going deeper in your relationship with God. The time is NOW to release those highlighted spaces, whether it be perfectionism, comparison, doubt, or control, in order to retain the true and living Word of God that ultimately defines you. Releasing is not easy, but it will be worth all that God has for you to retain.

Warrior Words: A Scripture Reference Tool of 100+ Emotions and Circumstances

A letter from Britt + how to get the most out of this tool:
Our desire is to be a vessel for the Lord to create a tool that enables us to fight for truth in the middle of uncertainty, lies and less than ideal circumstances. Our prayer is this tool will be your go-to in moments where the world seems to spin. We pray you would open your "Warrior Words" book to find hope, peace, and most importantly, truth by identifying with emotion or circumstance and being led to open your Bible and hear straight from the word of God.
Our dreams and desires, paired with our knowledge of God's character and faithfulness, begin to become much more grand and holy than we could ever imagine apart from knowing Christ.
I believe God made each of us having unique yearnings in our hearts. Let's be women that are not afraid of dreaming but do so walking hand-in-hand with whom God says He is in full surrender to His will that is always greater than our own.
No matter where you are in your life, no matter what you are facing today, the insecurities, fears, and trials you have on your plate, I pray this book blesses you by equipping you with tools to realize your emotions and circumstances, rely on our God and His word for direction and digestion of those emotions and circumstances and to respond (in word and deed) grounded in truth and love.
