Giveaway

I'm always up for new Advent Adventures!

Over the years we have done many different things with our four children.   Today, they range in age 7-15 so it's not always the easiest to find (and adapt) an Advent book/activities that covers such an age range.  Often what fit well for the oldest didn't work well with the youngest and let's be honest, you just reach an age in those teenage years that cotton balls and glitter projects just aren't that cool.  Well, I'm quickly finding out that few things are cool at all when it comes to Moms and fifteen year olds.   xo

Last year I read the adult version,  The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp and oh my...how God used it to speak a word and give perspective into what can be (and last year WAS) such a CRAZY busy season.

The world just screams at us this time of year...demands of us.
But that is not what God asks of us.  We put ourselves in our own mess.

How is God speaking to your heart as we move into this season of Advent?

Are you excited or are you full of dread?

Have you made a plan to walk through Advent with your children?  If so, how?

For our family, I'm excited to go through Ann Voskamps newest book, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift!

The story of the Jesse Tree has always been a beautiful one!  It journey's us through the Bible, reminding us of God's great plan from before the beginning of time...to send us the greatest gift of all, Jesus.

Though I have gone through the Jesse Tree story myself many times, and even adapted it to fit into my children's understanding, Ann Voskamp breaths new life into the journey!






Highlights of the book:

-Daily readings from God's Holy Word.
-Beautiful Devotions
-Application! Thoughts to discuss along with family activities (even for 15 year olds)
-Visual aide!  Hang ornaments on your very own Jesse Tree.  --FREE printables!
   (I think we just might go cut ours down from the woods this year)

>>And all it takes is a small slot of your time.  A precious small slot of your time.

This book is manageable, understandable, and meaningful... pointing us to the GREATEST GIFT of all.  Jesus Christ.  And isn't THAT something to celebrate!  xo
