It’ almost time to change the calendar and gather Advent materials. (And I should probably consider removing the rotting pumpkins from the front porch.)
As we count down to Christmas, we will pull out a new book from our December book stack. Im actually thinking about wrapping them up and letting them open one each day. Christmas books are our favorite! We will also be adding Advent activities and Christmas crafts to our morning basket.
I really want our focus this Christmas season to be on others and how we can bless those around us with simple gestures. Last year we introduced the Giving Manger and Kindness Advent to our kids. My daughter is a natural gift giver and loves to bless others in the sweetest of ways. Where my boys love to receive ALL THE THINGS… so I’m excited to see how this goes. We also used Slow and Sacred Advent to keep Jesus at the center of our holiday. We loved it so much that we will continue to do many of the activities again this year. We are also very excited to read through Unearthing Wonder, a new Advent family guide and nature study released by the Peaceful Press!
I’d love to hear your ideas on how you spread joy and keep the season focused on HIM.
I hope you enjoy scrolling through this book stack. Most of these books are old favorites, a few are from my childhood, some from the library… and several are brand new to us this year! I love discovering new ones!
