Last year my family celebrated advent for our very first time. It was truly a wonderful experience as we focused on the birth of our savior for the entire month of December.
With the children, we read through Truth in the Tinsel by Amanda White.
Every day we read through scripture leading to the birth of Christ. Once we were done with our reading, we made an ornament that went along with the scripture for that day.
The boys loved it and so did I.
It gave us a chance to savor the month of December as we set our eyes upon God’s grace and the love that he has for us to have sent his son.
It also gave us a chance to really think about Jesus today and our hope in his second advent.
This year we’re going to go through Truth in the Tinsel once again. We didn’t fully complete the book last year, so I’m hoping we’ll make it to the end.
With the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving, I wanted to remind you that Advent starts Sunday. Can you believe that?!
So if this is something you think you’d like to do with your children this year I’d encourage you to get the book today. The activities are easy and all planned out for you.
I want to wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving with your family tomorrow and here’s to a fantastic Christmas season ahead!
