Countdown to Christmas
‘Tis the Season! Whether you are ready or not…. Christmas is right around the corner! This year don’t let Christmas slip up on you. In the hustle and bustle of buying gifts, cooking, decorating, traveling, and wrapping presents; let’s do our best to not let the focus of the Christmas season get lost.
When my kids are grown up (and that is becoming a reality), I often wonder how will they remember Christmas? What family traditions stuck? Kendra and I want their memories to hold insight into Jesus, not just a blur of presents they did or did not receive from family members.
ADVENT can be a FUN, faith-filled way to keep the family focused on Jesus as you countdown to Christmas Day! Gather the family each night to teach and discuss how God sent JOY to the world with the gift of HIS SON. While you’re at it, spread some JOY of your own as a family by discussing the “talking” points on the Advent calendar we have provided in the CLUBHOUSE (Children’s Center) for some good family discussion.
My wish for you this season is that you will use the calendar provided to make deliberate choices about how to celebrate the season. Use the calendar to make your daily devotional time short and simple. Allow this time together to become an opportunity to talk more about Jesus in your home.

“Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son and will call HIM Immanuel.” – Isaiah 7:14
