My family started an Advent candle tradition three years ago, and it’s been one of our favorite parts of the holiday season. As our kids have gained in understanding, we are starting to see the benefits of pointing them back to the Christ child every Christmas season. For the past two years I’ve created my own Advent devotionals on the Sundays leading up to Christmas Eve, but this year I stumbled into something better. About two days before we started, I get an email from Gina McClain with an idea she has for creating Advent devotionals using the stories from The Jesus Storybook Bible. She then passes it off to Sam Luce for some design tweaking and then the idea gets even better.
You can go to Gina’s site right now and download everything for FREE. It’s easy and simple to do, as it’s only a few times leading up to Christmas. If you are worried that you’ve already missed the first two weekends of Advent, don’t be! It’s never too late to take next steps when it comes to spiritually leading your family this Christmas season!
So go download the devotional, and go out right now and purchase The Jesus Storybook Bible to accompany it! If you don’t already have the Jesus Storybook Bible, then it’s something you need to get right now this minute. We read it as a family quite regularly, and it brings me to tears often.
