It’s a busy season. Slow down and worship amidst all the rushing and buying and visiting.
Advent activities and devotionals to make this Christmas special.
I love Advent. I didn’t grow up with these traditions, but we’re doing them as a family to make Christmas time more special than presents, cookies, and ornaments.
I love Bible studies that focus on Christ and His Coming. I love teaching my children about Advent. There are so many to choose from that I have to scale down. I can’t do them all and I don’t want to overwhelm my kids with too much.
We look forward to reading devotionals, worshiping, and singing praises to Jesus every morning and evening during the Advent season.
For the Family:
Our family loves this Advent Wreath and we light it every Sunday during Advent.
Our Favorite Jesse Tree Devotionals:
We read aloud one of these books each year: Ytreeide Advent Stories
Move away from candy with a fun Lego Advent Calendar! My kids got these for the first time this year and I can’t wait!
Jesus, Light of the World: Praying the Scriptures through Advent by Candace Crabtree
The Passion of Mary Advent Story by Andrew Bowen
Truth in the Tinsel is great for kids! Crafts are a great way to teach little ones about Jesus.
The girls especially love our Advent house calendar with little strips of paper printed with generous directives. They take turns reading them each morning and it really helps them develop an attitude of servant leadership.
