The basic idea is to rid your house of 40 bags of stuff during the 40 days of Lent. Lent is a time of renewal, sacrifice, self-control, almsgiving and prayer. To me, this project is about taking time to reflect on what is really important. De-cluttering my life to make more room for what is real...God and my family. It's a way to reflect on how much we have and what we actually need.
Hindsight is 20/20. Don’t we all wish we could go back and relive our youth armed with the knowledge we now have? What I Wish I Knew at 18 is Dennis Trittin’s handbook for the young on what he wish he knew before he went out into the real world. He began compiling a list of things he wanted his son to know before going off to college and that turned into this book and ultimately fulfilled a lifelong desire to do something relevant, lasting and more fulfilling than his career.
Print 150+ little words of encouragement, funny pics, frustration busters, and I love you notes to send off to college with my son. He can pick one out at anytime and never knows what he will get. Just enough to remember home.
