Its an ancient Christian tradition that lasts throughout December. We are to pause, take a break from the commercialisation of Christmas and remember Jesus.
The Jesus Storybook Bible has released a free Advent resource. I used it last year and it was a wonderful experience for the family. It consists of printable cards that you can use to make an advent display. You can use them as hangings on your Christmas tree, string them up on a line across the room (thats what we did) or even stick them to your wall in the shape of a Christmas tree.
Each day you read a section of the Jesus Storybook Bible and then put up the associated card.
You can get the advent resource here:
If you don't have a copy of the Jesus Storybook Bible you can purchase it as an ebook here: JSSB ebook
Or, go into Warringah Christian book shop and pick one up (call ahead on 99717188)
I highly encourage you to take the time to do this. You and your family will be greatly blessed as you re-centre on the Prince of Peace at a time of year that is anything but peaceful.
If you want the book but can't get one, chat with me. If you want nicely printed cards. As an incentive, if you want the cards nicely printed in colour, let me know and I'll print them on Monday (its a couple of days after it starts but I'll be away till Monday.)
Send me some pics of yours when it's done. I'd love to see them and share to encourage other parents.
As you celebrate Christmas, be assured of my prayers and support. I'm here to walk with you on this fun and crazy journey of parenthood.
