Living in a culture that takes every beautiful holiday and twists it away from its intended purpose requires a very intentional approach to celebrate what Christmas really means. And so I wanted to pop in a share a few resources for celebrating advent this year. I love the concept of preparing our hearts for Christmas and what it truly represents: Jesus, coming to us in human flesh to save our sinful flesh.
I have really been enjoying the Advent devotional we're doing right now on She Reads Truth.
Another great resource that I've had my eye on for a few years now is the Naptime Diaries Advent Calendar. Maybe once we're a little more settled and I have the space to decorate for Christmas, I would love to use this calendar for our family to count down the days to Christmas, not for the excitement of the gifts and treats, but in celebration of Christ coming to us.
These short devotionals Ann Voskamp recorded are such a great way to start the day, or week. There is one video for each week of Advent (each week in December). I hope these resources will be helpful and encouraging to you!
