“Journey to the Cross: 40 Days to Prepare Your Heart for Easter,” by Mary Carver and the (in)courage community

Journey to the Cross: 40 Days to Prepare Your Heart for Easter, by Mary Carver and the (in)courage community, is an encouraging devotional.


Focused on the 40 days of Lent, this devotional features Scriptures, short essays, encouraging stories, quotes, reflective questions and prayers. It even has room to write your reflections, etc.

In addition, the key themes of this book addresses are sacrifice, reflection, gratitude, prayer, and fasting.

For those who like to keep track, it includes a Lent devotional calendar checklist, to keep track what days have been read.


As for the book itself, it’s small, durable, perfect for on the go devotionals at the coffee shop.

The beautiful artwork and word art make the book more appealing and nurture a sense of serenity.

With varying lengths of pages day to day, it is still short enough to fit into any schedule. I highly recommend this well-made devotional.

About the Author

At (in)courage you are welcome to a place of faith, connection, and friendship, where you will always find yourself among friends.

Founded in 2009 by DaySpring, the Christian products subsidiary of Hallmark Cards, Inc., the vision for (in)courage was to create a new home for the hearts of women, where women take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their everyday, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

Since then, (in)courage has grown into a vibrant community that reaches thousands of women every day, welcoming them just the way they are, offering a space to breathe, loving support, and resources for meaningful connection.
