Abcs of Advent
Advent is the time of year just before Christmas when we prepare ourselves and our homes for celebrating the birth of Jesus. It is a time full of preparations. We clean and decorate. We make, bake and buy gifts for our friends and family. We attend parties at our schools, churches and at the homes of our friends and family. This is also the time when we prepare our hearts to worship. It is a time when we read and focus on the stories in our Bible that tell us about Jesus' birth. Each Advent season offers us an opportunity to hear the Christmas story again and gives us the challenge of finding new meaning in this familiar story. This devotional book is a special way for children to prepare for Christmas. Parents can even use this guide to work together with their child to make this experience one to treasure for years to come. Each page of this book has a short reading about the Christmas story that matches a letter of the alphabet for each day of Advent. Each day also has an opportunity for both younger and older children to reflect, through journaling or drawing, on the day's lesson. This is a time to get ready for something new and exciting. Go now and listen to the Christmas story again and treasure its moments of new discovery.
