An Advent Devotional for Children
If you read my post about our Advent wreath then you know I'm looking for ways to make this Christmas season more meaningful for our kids. I'm not anti-Santa, we visit him at the mall every year, but we don't want that to be the focus of our Christmas season. We want Liam and Isabel to know that Christmas is the time when we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
I've seen so many people posting about this book that I had to get my hands on it. And let me tell you, it is beautiful. Ann Voskamp, if you're not familiar with her, is a writer who is truly inspiring. She has a beautiful heart that pours through in her writing.
I believe this book is her first one meant for kids (and their parents). Each day of Advent has a Bible story followed by reflection questions and suggestions for family activities. I know my kids are still young. Isabel especially doesn't really know what's going on with Christmas. But Liam, at just three years old, understands quite a bit. And I believe it's never too early to start talking to your kids about the true meaning of Christmas. They're never too young to start directing their hearts to Christ. And yes, I'm thrilled that they will be unwrapping several exciting gifts this Christmas, but I'm even more excited about "Unwrapping The Greatest Gift" of all.
