A family Advent devotional? Where to start?
Each year as the holiday season approaches, you're probably like me: looking for ways to connect intentionally with your family and focus on the true meaning of Christmas, but you're struggling to find time to be still and do so. You want to do a meaningful Advent devotional, but you're not sure where to find something that you and your family can do together, not to mention how you're going to figure out when you can gather together to regularly do one.
Let me help!
Feed your souls while you feed your family.
Guess what? You can do a meaningful Christmas-themed devotional with your family each day of Advent without finding extra time in your schedule to do it.
Just do it together over a normal mealtime. This devotional is designed for that.
This family Advent devotional e-book comprises brief, meaningful daily devotionals for you and your family to reflect upon during a shared meal together. Each daily dinnertime devotional includes Scripture, commentary, a reflection, and some questions for chatting with one another.
In other words, this devotional is specifically designed for active families who desire to honor Advent, focus their hearts on the true meaning of Christmas, and desire for a simple but meaningful way to connect with each other and with God during the holiday season.
Inspired by Christ. Inspired by Christmas. Inspired by Family.
This family Advent devotional book was written from a deep love of Christmas, a deep love of family, and deep love of God's Word.
Traditions are important. Symbols are important. God's Word is jam-packed with each. Traditions serve as anchors in a world of fluidity, and symbols serve as reminders in a world prone to forgetting God's blessings.
Christmas is a season rich in both tradition and symbolism, so I wanted to write a devotional that spoke to those. Knowing I wanted to write an Advent study particularly for families to do around their dinner tables together, I began searching for a theme on which to focus that study - something for families to latch onto during the season of Advent and help them better root themselves in God during the season.
How better to root ourselves than with a tree?
Because most of us likely display a Christmas tree in December, it's the perfect backdrop for a study during the season of Advent. This devotional focuses on how Scripture uses trees/wood to highlight God's power, His desire for our obedience, and the necessity for us to remain rooted in truth. Similarly, we'll see that the lights on our trees can remind us that God is the Light of the World; that He calls us to be a Light; that Light overcomes darkness; and that God's Word is a Light to guide us in our lives.
As we gather at our dinner tables and use the theme of the Christmas tree as a backdrop of our study each day, we can look to it as a family to remember that Christ is in the details of our lives and in the details of the season.
Each Day of Advent you can...
In addition to the advent study e-book, you'll also get...
Some outrageously easy and absolutely delicious recipes.
Included with the study, you'll also receive a printable recipe booklet with four easy-to-make, delicious one-pot soup recipes. These soup recipes are tried and true from my kitchen to yours. They're family-friendly and will surely bring smiles to your dinner table!
In the recipe booklet, you'll also find ideas for some no-fuss, fun-to-make seasonal dessert ideas to bring some extra special flavor and festiveness to a normal meal. (If you're having trouble getting kids to the dinner table, just tell them a peppermint milkshake is involved and I'm sure they'll be there in a jiffy.)
And a beautiful printable Advent calendar with Scripture references.
You'll also receive PDF documents of a beautiful Advent calendar that you can easily print and trim to hang on garland, ribbon, or perhaps even your Christmas tree.
Each date of Advent is printed on one side, and a Scripture reference is printed on the other.
In keeping with the theme of lights, each day's Scripture reference pertains to light and can offer a reminder to us that Jesus is the Light of the World and that we are to be a light for others.
Advent begins on sunday, December 3 - Are you ready?!
