Advent is a time of reflection and anticipation. It is a time when we consider all that God has done for us AND all He has promised to do in the future. We anticipate the great celebration of His first appearance in the world and look forward to the day when He returns to us again! What an incredible time of anticipation, celebration, joy and excitement this time of year brings! And what better way can we enjoy the Advent and Christmas season than by spending time with Jesus in special family devotions? But where do we find an Advent devotional guide for the whole family???
Many of us enjoy a guided time with Jesus and the Advent season brings a lot of these “guided tours.” During Advent Kim and I are using a devotional series created by the great folks at 121 Community Church in Grapevine, Texas in our time with God. We found this devotional series through the Bible App called “YouVerse.” You can find out more about the series here. One of the great advantages of this particular devotional guide is that it has a section for families with children. The “Kids section” is very well written and includes thought provoking questions to ask your children following the day’s readings. This devotional provides a great reinforcement to what you are teaching your kids through an Advent calendar!
I am really enjoying this series and hope you will as well. Christmas becomes so much more when we intentionally center our heart on Jesus. Don’t miss out on what the season can mean for you and your family when you put Jesus at the center of all the month’s activities!
