Keep the Focus on Jesus this Christmas with 24 Family Devotions for Advent!
The flurry of shopping, gift giving, recitals, and parties adds a certain amount of tension to a season meant to be infused instead with awe and wonder. Ask most families what the focus of Christmas really is and they will readily answer that it is the birth of Christ, yet so many of us find ourselves overwhelmed with activities, travel plans, hosting, and more. Trying to prepare our hearts and our families to celebrate His birth becomes secondary while we try to survive the busyness!
Victoria Duerstock wants to support families in their desire to make Christ the focus of all their celebrations this Christmas. Each day of this family devotional includes not only a Scripture and short short reflection for the twenty-four days leading up to Christmas, but also inviting full-color images and simple Christmas crafts that can be done as you focus on the rich meaning of this season. Find easy-to-follow instructions for:
Stained Glass Ornaments
Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap
Mason Jar Luminaries
Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments
And many more!
Each devotional through the four weeks of Advent is focused on the themes of Hope, Preparation, Joy, and Love and is meant to be read with the entire family, or by the older child who needs something just for them in this special season.
Advent Devotions & Christmas Crafts for Families will be your new favorite holiday tradition. It makes a wonderful early Christmas gift for kids, parents, or grandparents!
