How do you prepare your heart and spirit for the Christmas season? What about your children? With all the elves on the shelves and Santa images everywhere…how do we center ourselves in Christ this Christmas?
Advent is a celebration and anticipation of the coming of Jesus’ birth. There are so many wonderful ideas and traditions that you can incorporate into your celebrations this year. Helping our children to keep their minds on Jesus is so important these days. The constant turmoil around us, the tragedies around the world, and even the needs of those right in your hometown are sometimes overwhelming, even for kids who hear and see these things on the news. We MUST center our hearts and minds on a firm foundation of Christ and the Christmas season is the perfect opportunity to start something more!
Countdown to Christmas Devotion
One of the way’s I’ve created an atmosphere centered around Christ is through a scripture journey I call Countdown to Christmas. Last year I created the devotion and scripture cards but now I’ve updated and revised them with a brand new look. I’m so excited about offering this devotion again because I really believe that this will bless your family!
Countdown to Christmas allows you and your kids to take a moment each day during December to think about God’s gifts to us. It’s divided into 5 sections of 5 days each. Each section focuses on a different gift from God…like His goodness or His gift of peace. There is a daily scripture to read and a devotion to read together. At the end of the devotion are some thought provoking questions. These are sometimes things to think about and ponder for your own life, while others are action items that encourage you and your kids to give, do, or pray for others. The devotions are worded to be easily understood with even young kids while allowing deep growth for you as the parent.
I know how busy this season can be so everything is done for you! Just pick up your devotion guide and start reading! I’ve even put in lines so you can write down responses, thoughts, or ideas each day!
The devotional shows a scripture card for each day’s reading so you don’t HAVE to purchase the cards separately if you don’t want to. However, the cards are beautiful and will be a great addition to your scripture study. You can hole punch them and put them on a ring or display them on the refrigerator….be creative!
