It can happen to all of us.

Despite our best intentions, we can get sucked into the commercial rush of the holiday season, and before we know it, December’s gone. We blink, and we miss it.

This year, let’s determine a different way.

Let’s pause before the month even begins, and take intentional steps to slow down.

Let’s get ourselves ready to notice and enjoy the true reason for the season.

When I grew up, we had an Advent wreath just like this one from DaySpring:

Read my review here, then order a copy for your own family by clicking here. You won’t regret it!

I also love Ann’s book, The Greatest Gift. It follows a very similar format to the family version shown above, but is geared more toward an adult audience. Order your copy HERE.

 

 

 

The dear Kris Camealy wrote a fabulous Advent devotional called Come, Lord Jesus:

My family and I read this aloud together last year, and it really is fantastic. I can highly recommend it.

Next on the list: A free Advent devotional written by Shauna Letellier. Since I’ve already used all of the resources mentioned above, I’m thinking of going through Remarkable Advent this year.

The description on Amazon says, “This book is for the woman who craves a less crazed-feeling Christmas, who longs for a season that is intentional and full of joy. Including 25 devotions, each of them guilt-free, inspiring, and able to be read in 10 minutes or less! As you prepare your heart for Christmas by reading through these pages, you’ll be inspired to drop the pursuit of perfection and chase holy.” Sounds amazing, hey? Get your copy here.
