This year Lent begins on February 26 and goes until April 9. What is lent? According to EGW-

Lent is a 40-day period of spiritual preparation leading up to Easter in which many Christians reflect on Christ’s death and resurrection.

So what is the goal of lent? Basically to give something up for 40 days in order to turn your focus back to your faith. EGW details -

It’s a time to reflect on what Jesus did. And it’s meant to be a time of self-sacrifice, denial and repentance.
