I don’t know about you, but my heart is READY for the Advent season! After the year we have had, I’m ready to intentionally posture my heart to the promise that Jesus came to redeem us and will be returning to take us all home!
If you’ve never observed Advent, I hope you will consider carving out time to create new rhythms for your family that will help you focus on Jesus.
John Piper describes Advent as patient waiting and hopeful expectation. It’s a celebration that Jesus came to redeem His people and He will return again to this world as the conquering King. It’s a look back and a look forward.
There are so many great ways to celebrate advent in your home, but it might look different depending upon your stage of life and the age of your children. Hopefully the list below will give you some ideas and help you discern which would be best for your home. May the JOY of Jesus fill your hearts and home this Christmas season as we rejoice that He came to redeem us, and He will come again!
NOTE: Traditional Advent starts this Sunday, November 29th. If you want to order anything, you will want to act fast to have it ready by Sunday.
