I love Christmas. Everything about Christmas. I know I’ve gushed before, but I can’t help it. It’s such a beautiful time of year. I love the family times that come with the holidays too. The traditions, the laughter and the love. So when I come across something that makes all those things even deeper, I’m happy to share about it!
Based on the overwhelming success of The Greatest Gift, Ann Voskamp has expanded her presentation of the timeless Advent tradition of the Jesse Tree so families can celebrate together. Each day, families can read the provided Scripture passage (in connection with the original book), engage with a specially written devotion to help children of all ages understand the Advent theme for the day, and participate in suggested activities to apply the theme.
This special edition is beautifully illustrated. It can serve as a precious guide to help recapture the sacredness of the Advent season and to help the entire family understand and celebrate the epic pageantry of humankind from Adam to the Messiah.
This is such a beautiful and lovely book for a family to go through at Christmas. Discussing important life lessons and key bible stories, this will definitely provide a deeper and more real understanding of God, Jesus and the Gospel for young kids. With beautiful and bold colors and illustrations, it’s a fabulous book I can see drawing families closer together every holiday season.
Each day has a scripture reading, a short devotional, thoughts to discuss and family activities. Not only that, but when you buy the book, you get access to ornaments for your family’s advent tree. So yes, this is wonderful book to add to your family traditions!
What’s a family tradition you have during the Christmas season?
