Advent – the month of waiting that precedes Christmas – begins December 3! I don’t know about you, but it always seems to sneak up on me. One day I’m carving a pumpkin and the next – BAM! – it’s Advent.
If you, like me, sometimes feel a little unprepared for this holy season of getting ready to welcome Jesus anew at Christmastime, have no fear. Help is here!
If you’re looking for resources for you, your church, your family, or your small group, you’ve come to the right place.
- 5 Ways to Celebrate Advent as a Family Because Advent is about more than just Lego countdown calendars. (Though those are great, too!)
2. Short Daily Advent Scripture Readings for Families These are especially good for young, squirmy kiddos. Nice and succinct, and good to read around the dinner table or before bed.
3. My very favorite adult Advent devotional guide is Plough Publishing House’s Watch for the Light. It contains daily readings from theologians, poets, scholars, and novelists, and each one is a gem. I reread this every year.
4. Finally, I’ll be posting a brand new 10-Minute Advent Devotional here each week day beginning Friday, December 1.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, these posts are guest-written by an amazing cadre of moms and dads, pastors and theologians, musicians, teachers, and published authors. I cannot wait to share these diverse and inspiring voices with you.
